Custom software: if it doesn't fit don't code it

How do make sure your investment in custom software is wise or warranted? Be sure the audience wants what you think they do, develop a compelling solution from the ground-up, then continue to analyze, learn and iterate to maximize impact.

This is how we do it!

Idea Development & Insights

Idea Assessment | Idea/Business Model Presentations | Audience Validation/Review | Performance Metrics Reviews | Process Validation 

We want all of our clients software solutions to return alpha performance - an out-performance of a benchmark or the norm.  Custom software development or digital based business initiatives have a high degree of under-performance. We take the steps to achieve out performance by quickly and efficiently vetting assumptions early-on using minimum viable product methodologies and gathering and analyzing data to prove proper product/market fit before the onset of major development cycles.  Idea development includes:

We evaluate new ideas or existing solutions you feel are under-performing.

  • Kickoff > Consultative call to clarify needs
  • Identify > Virtual consultations to define scope
  • Define and strategize > Strategic engagements to define action items
    • Conduct forensic analysis
    • Execute validation process
    • Explore alternative strategies
    • Explore alternative models

Low & High Fidelity MVPs (Minimum Viable Products)

Mobile | Web development | Analytics | Cloud enablement services | Integration

A minimum viable product just contains core features that allow the product to be deployed, and no more. An MVP is not a minimal product but minimal in relation to realizing the goal.  MVPs reduce execution risk, opportunity cost and up-front budget commitments.  It is an evaluative fact-driven approach that leans on in-depth customer need discovery and data-driven validation prior to making larger bets on digital business initiatives.
