Product Discovery

Understanding the need

03

Offer

Crafting the solution

With a clear goal in mind and within your budget, the Solution Architects Team crafts a realistic plan to deliver a product meeting the goal.

The team starts with defining the world-class agile product team setup - roles, competences, and the number of experts that are required to build the right product.

Then, the Solution Architects Team builds an initial 1 Product Roadmap explaining what specific value the Solution Architects Team will be working on in a given timeframe in order to reach the product goal.

Based on that 1 Product Roadmap you are provided with the cost simulation of delivering an end-to-end solution ready to be launched to the market. You also get informed upfront about all the important assumptions and potential risks you might encounter.

👉 Results: Product Roadmap, Cost-simulation, Risks list

A Product Roadmap is a tool to simply and clearly visualize how development is going vs the goal, deadline and budget.


What advantages a Product Roadmap offers:

  • Gives a clear vision of the product development plan focused around the product goal
  • Provides a visualization of the current progress (work, time, and budget)
    • a reliable budget control tool
    • allows to easily check if we are on track
    • informs what's ahead before launching the actual product
    • takes into consideration the available capacity of the development team
  • Provides clear communication within the team and with stakeholders
  • Helps in setting sprint goals

Customers are delighted with the value Product Roadmaps offer:

  • "We were able to better estimate launch dates and plan better for each sprint and also think more critically when it comes to the features for the mvp"
  • "We were able to see what is coming next, and everyone was aligned"

Launch and product success

Launch the product and measure its impact

Have the product launched and get the right tools to measure how your product is doing on the market and what kind of impact it has via our dedicated 2 Product Dashboard.

🚀 Result: App on the market!

A Product Dashboard gives you access to quantitative data on how the product is performing on the marketplace to easily assess whether your product is headed in the desired direction and how to prioritize further product development decisions.

See a fully functional example in Google Data Studio.


What advantages a Product Dashboard offers:

  • You see the specific metrics and data important to your business, selected to best visualize how your product is performing in the marketplace
  • You see progress towards your most important goal
  • You see key information about the product's users such as phone brands, operating system versions and countries
  • You have a real-time access to data on how users are using the product - with the option to filter, set a time range, etc.
  • You have the most important data in one place to help you make good decisions about the next priorities based on real data
  • We train you how to read and use data to make best decisions

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the most important phases in mobile app development you should know before jumping on the mobile bandwagon.

Phase 1: Discovery

During this phase, you need to strategize and define the experience your mobile app will deliver to its users. Who is the target audience? What problem will the mobile app solve? An important deliverable of this phase is a solid product roadmap and the detailed technical requirements document. A 3-day Product Design Workshop can help you to go through this phase successfully.

Phase 2: Mobile app development

The development team writes the code and realizes your mobile app idea. The duration of this phase will depend on the number of features and the overall complexity. Note that testing will take place during the development phase as well.

Once your mobile app has been developed and approved by the app store, it’s time for the launch!

Phase 3: Maintenance, support, and further development

Once your mobile app is downloaded and used by real users, it’s worth listening closely to their feedback. This will help you determine which features should be built next, or what you need to change in your product to deliver an even better experience.

Read about how to build a mobile app step by step to understand the process deeply.

There are 7 crucial stages of the mobile app development process from a business point of view:

  1. Clarifying the vision
  2. Choosing a partner
  3. Wireframes & Design
  4. Project Kick-off & Setup
  5. App development
  6. Release Preparation
  7. App Maintenance

Read more about every stage in our guide through the mobile app development process.

In our experience, the best way to talk about the cost of mobile app development is by thinking about it in terms of complexity. And so:

  • Basic applications cost around $29,500. Such apps take the development team from 71 to 100 man days of work (development + QA).
  • Medium-complexity applications cost around $29,500-$50,500. These kind of apps include more sophisticated features like customer-facing server applications. Building such a mobile application will take the team around 100 to 170 man days.
  • Complex mobile applications cost more than $50,500. They require building a complicated architecture, and multiple integrations or meeting high-security demands cost even more. They take more than 1,200 hours to complete. This rough estimate can serve as your starting point in understanding how much it really costs to develop a mobile app.

Yes, you are the owner of Intellectual Property rights at all times.

We are usually ready to start development within 3-6 weeks. Contact us to find out when we can start working on your mobile app.

Yes, we always sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) when a client wants it. We can do it at the very beginning before we discuss your project’s details, or at another stage of the process – it’s up to you.

Yes, we also do maintenance. Mobile app development is just a start. During the app maintenance, the development team implements app monitoring tools (e.g. HockeyApp, Crashlytics, Google Analytics, Firebase) to every product we have created. Thanks to these tools, we can detect any crashes, follow the app’s statistics, and plan product enhancement

We have experience in working with clients from all over the world and we are able to cooperate effectively across multiple time zones.

  • During the kick-off meeting, we set the rules for our cooperation.
  • We agree upon our meeting times that are comfortable for both sides.
  • We set our working hours so that we can have a video-call with you.
  • We communicate with you on Slack through a project-dedicated channel, where you can always see all the important discussions about your product.

You work with us on a Time & Materials basis. The total cost of a T&M project depends on the actual effort made towards the development.

In this model, you pay for the actual time the team spends on the development of specific tasks. You are in charge of the project’s scope and set priorities for the development team.

Why do we use the Time & Materials model? It ensures flexibility, a shorter time-to-market, and it allows for the Continuous Delivery of a software product. This approach ensures a high-quality product – your mobile app will be tested at every stage of development.

Furthermore, you can flexibly set the direction of app development depending on the users’ feedback, market situation, or opportunities that arise during the development. Read more about Time & Materials vs Fixed Price.

We are a company of 70+ talented professionals: iOS developers, Android developers, Flutter developers, Backend developers, and Web developers.

However, our development team also consists of certified Scrum Masters, UX/UI designers, Quality Assurance Engineers, and Business Analyst.

With these experts on board, we are able to take the whole app development process off your shoulders, so you can focus on the business.

We adjust the team’s size according to your needs. A typical development team consists of: 1 Product Owner (from your side), 1 Business Analyst, 1 Product Designer, 1 Scrum Master, 2 Android developers, 2 iOS developers, 1 Quality Assurance Engineer.

We have completed over 130 mobile & web projects and we have a strong background in developing applications from various categories: mobile commerce, IoT, fintech, medtech, maps & transport, lifestyle, digital transformation, and more.

The knowledge and experience gained in so many industries for over 11 years means that we are able to deal with the development of any type of application. Check out our portfolio.

Yes. The code we create is very readable and well documented, which makes it easy to transfer the project to another team if needed.

A standard team consists of a Product Owner (on your side), Scrum Master, Quality Assurance specialists, UX/UI Designers, and Developers. The size of the team depends on your deadlines and the complexity of your project.

Yes, of course. Every week you get:

  • An app demo build (so you can check if the created app fits your expectations)
  • A detailed review of what’s been done
  • Information about eventual difficulties or additional work that has been done
  • Information about how many hours the team worked on the project during the Sprint

According to your preferences, you can take part in the Review meeting, or just get the above-mentioned information with an E-mail.

What’s more, we use these good practices to ensure 100% transparency:

  • You have direct contact with every team member – through Slack, e-mail, video call, during Scrum meetings, or even live.
  • PO Guidance – as a Product Owner, you will be supported in your role. We will introduce you to the necessary tools to help you to monitor the budget and maximize the value delivered by the development team.
  • Jira Dashboard – the team will provide you with a presentation of the most important data about the project on transparent charts.
  • Tempo Timesheet – it is a Jira tracking tool. At any moment, you can check what the team is spending time on.
  • Forecast & Change Management – we forecast the project budget, support you in monitoring, and predict potential risks, so they can be prevented.
  • Dropbox / Google – you have access to all materials collected in one place.

Read more about app development in Scrum.

Yes, of course. We will upload your Android application on the Google Play Store and your iOS app on Apple Store. It is also a part of our app development process. We will also guide you through the app setup on the stores regarding the marketing materials, description, and legacy issues.

We invite you to cooperate with us in the form of app maintenance. This option gives you confidence that the team is always available when your project needs us.

If you do not decide on maintenance, you can contact us with a specific need, but whether we can help at the moment depends on the current booking of the team.

Yes. When we finish mobile app development, we support you in the process of publishing your mobile app on the Google Play Store and Apple Store. Then, we offer you app maintenance services.

Such apps are built for a single mobile Operating System – mostly for Android or iOS.

They are downloaded and installed via an app store and have access to the system resources, such as GPS and the camera function. Native mobile apps live and run on the device itself. Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp, Instagram and Google Maps are examples of popular mobile apps.

Yes, those two phrases share the same meaning. A software house/app development agency is a company that develops software products. Software house has specialists, know-how and proven processes allowing them to develop software faster than internal teams.

80% of our employees are employed permanently. We decided to hand-pick 20% of our developers from our partners to best meet clients’ needs.

Yes, our headquarters and most of the experts are from Wroclaw, Poland. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, we all worked from one office. The changes caused by the pandemic made us open to hiring people from all over Poland. Poland is a part of European Union and and a member of NATO.

Wroclaw is one of the fastest-growing tech hubs in the world. Its location enables fast and convenient access from any city in the world. Read more about us.
