Our purpose is to help you refine that very idea into a solid basis for your application. This is an essential phase, as it lays down the foundation for the processes that follows in order to create an ideal end-product. Once having defined the requirements for your app, the next step is to prepare a product roadmap. This includes, prioritizing the mobile app requirements and grouping them into delivery and payment milestones.
Information architecture & workflow design.
We assess the information your mobile app must either capture from or display to, the end user, and the user’s journey within your app.
With Prototypes we show the visual structure to your app’s functional requirements. The core focus of the prototype is aesthetics, user experience, colour schemes and styles. Creating a prototype is a cost-effective approach for designing mobile app layouts. Before any code is written the prototype is signed-off which ensures that all stakeholders have the same clear end goal, which saves time and cost during the development phase. You can’t truly comprehend the experience until you touch the App and see how it works and flows.
From the defined requirements we will create user stories with all the required details which will then be handed over to our developers. We give our clients access to view and track all tasks throughout the development phase. This allows the client to see what is currently being built, and what is next in the queue as well as what is still outstanding.
We firmly believe in and live the agile methodology. It allows for flexible planning, progressive development, early deployment and constant feedback and improvement. We believe it is absolutely key to get smaller features into the hands of the users faster so we can get feedback much sooner and then build from that user feedback.
The Agile process allows testers to test early and more often during the development process. The key focus area’s during testing are functionality, usability, compatibility, security, interface checks, stress testing and performance testing.
Part of the testing phase is user acceptance testing (UAT). This is where we make the software available to certain specified end-users who will test and provide feedback. Once the solution application passes UAT you will know that your solution works.
Together, we will create a plan for the roll-out of your solution. This includes making sure all the correct data is in the system, the correct users have been created, given access and all necessary training has been completed.
Once the end users starts downloading and using your application we will monitor the usage through mobile analytics and track key performance indicators for measuring your app’s success.
User feedback is critical to honing the experience. Prompt support for end-users and frequently enhancing the app will be vital to keeping users engaged.
