Our way of working
how we work

With a user-oriented way of working we make sure that our products add value to our customers right for the start.

Ideation Phase
FINDING IDEAS

Together with the customers we identify their “pain points”, the problems with the current processes and procedures, and generate first ideas with the help of modern innovation methods.

Validation Phase
TESTING IDEAS

With first prototypes, we test and validate the new ideas with the customer. A decision for the further realization of the ideas is made accordingly.

Implementation Phase
IMPLEMENTING AN MVP

An MVP (minimum viable product) is created and then tested live. With continuous customer feedback we improve the product until it is ready for the market.

  • Design Thinking

    According to Design Thinking we identify the problem together with the customer. Because only if we truly understand the customer’s issue, we can develop innovative products or services, that are utterly user-oriented, as well as feasible and marketable.

    During the development, we do not only speak about possible ideas. With the help of so called scribbles and click dummies we make them visible with prototypes, as early as possible. Thus, potential users can test the solution from the beginning of the development through to the market launch and give valuable feedback.

  • Lean Startup

    It is important to us to create a solution that at first only contains the most essential features for the elimination of the pain points and is marketable as soon as possible. For this purpose, we utilize so called MVPs (minimum viable product – minimal version of a product that only contains basic features). With their help, the main hypotheses can quickly be tested. This way we focus on the development of truly valuable features and pick up pace.

     

    With the help of MVPs the first users can influence the development of the product with feedback and ideas for improvement at an early stage. This way we can verify from the beginning if the product is accepted on the market or if it can be realized with all technical requirements. We prefer to fail early in the process and learn – without high costs – than after a long and expensive development.

     

    If we detect that adjustments are necessary, we can implement them timely and fast. With feedback from the market we continuously improve the product which in the end meets the requirements and wishes of the customer or the market
