Preparing Your App Business Strategy
Launching a successful app is as complex as launching any new product or business. There are endless decisions to make and a wide range of issues that must be addressed with care and professionalism for any real chance of success.
You’re going to need a clear understanding of your stakeholders’ needs, the benefits your app offers them, and their ability to use your app to have these needs met. We’ll help you navigate the route to a successful user experience by giving you a clear and concise summary of all the pros and cons of every step and choice along the way. Some issues to resolve at this stage are:
- What’s your business goal?
- What’s your unique value proposition?
- Who are your stakeholders and what are their representative personas?
- What are the benefits you deliver to stakeholders?
Operations, Processes and App User Flows
Once you have a clear vision for your app’s goals and benefits, you can develop the operations and back-of-house procedures needed to provide these benefits to your stakeholder. Now you can translate these procedures into data and process flows that can be delivered via your application.
App Design, User Experience and User Interface
Most services require some form of user data input, and deliver some form of data output for users to review and interact with. Since vision is so central to human cognition and comprehension, your application’s user interface design is one of the most crucial paradigms in the entire app development process. Ultimately it is the UI, more than anything else, that mediates your app’s functionality to your stakeholders and determines whether they evaluate their user experience with your service as meaningful, useful, and polished.
Your app design also shapes the initial impression stakeholders will have, not only of your service, but of your entire organization – a shoddy looking app can easily ruin your credibility, while a sleek looking design can help build your professional brand.
You can rely on our experience designing apps used by literally millions of users to ensure your app complies with user interface best practice and delivers a premium user experience.
Application Development Technology
Knowing what you need to accomplish operationally, and under what conditions, is key to evaluating which technologies are likely to be a good fit for your app’s unique requirements.
Since developing your custom application is an undertaking likely to require a significant investment of time and resources, and since a tech stack, once chosen, cannot be easily replaced, you need to be sure the framework supporting you will remain relevant for as long as possible.
We support development in any of the following environments and technologies: Ruby on Rails, PHP Laravel, .NET, Python, Java, C#, Angular JS, Node.js, iOS – Swift 4, Android – Kotlin, ReactNative, Flutter.
Once we’re clear on your goals and requirements we’ll advocate to you technologies that account not only for your current needs and budget, but also for your projected growth, to ensure that you can scale your business with confidence.
What’s in Your App Development Package?
Agile Startup Processes
Startups looking to focus on their unique value proposition, while avoiding the high head-count and cost of running in-house teams, routinely select us as their design and development partner. Whether you plan on eventually hiring your own developers, or prefer to leave your tech development outsourced to us, we’ve got you covered.
For companies that have a clear development roadmap and specifications, we offer fair fixed-fee proposals, and for companies that prefer to follow agile methodologies, we offer the ability to scale teams with professionals needed at each phase, so you’re only ever paying for the people you absolutely need.
Corporate Software Development Life Cycle Support
Organizational IT departments, CTOs, and corporate product owners often look to us to support their in-house efforts throughout various phases of the SDLC. We’re routinely asked to provide a fresh perspective and offer enhancements for existing systems, or serve as an outsourced research and development team to support the design and development of new products and solutions.
Outsourced Software Development Teams
If you’re seeking to have direct access to design and development teams that are fully dedicated to your projects, but prefer avoiding the challenges and costs associated with retaining these teams under your employment, you’re welcome to talk to us about our outsourced resource offers.
We routinely recruit and deploy design and development specialists to our clients’ projects. You can opt to have the individuals and teams we source for you working at your location, working from home, working from our offices, or any hybrid combination that best suits your needs.
Need something else? Just ask!
This is the first time I’m dealing with a partner whose work I can accept immediately. Vimi knows UX very well
How does it work?
Our process follows these principles:
People love platforms that account for how they feel & think. These are the insights behavioral design provides.
The teams work in parallel under the coordination of your assigned Project Manager, who is responsible for keeping you informed of progress and getting sign-off from all stakeholders. Typically our project managers will check in with you for a formal meeting once a week, and will manage day-to-day communication via email and chat.
Return on investment
A platform’s success is measured in relation to quantifiable goals. Failure can be useful, when we learn from it.
A project is only ever as good as the brief
One of the most important steps on your path to success is your app project brief.
A good brief will save you the pain of wasted $$$ and missed deadlines.
We know sometimes getting your thoughts in order is hard, so we’re happy to share with you the brief template our team uses, to help you get started. Remember – The more detailed your answers on the brief questions, the easier things will be for you later on…
Vimi did an amazing job. Quick, to the point, & clear proposals, fast timelines & an amazing result. For my next project I will definitely work with them again
