Starting with a prototype allows companies developing custom apps to solicit stakeholder and user feedback early in the process. This saves time and money in the long run. Keep reading to learn more.
Imagine if you had a life-like, clickable demo of your mobile app concept that your team could show executives, customers, users and investors.
Imagine if your sales team could take that mobile app prototype into meetings, events and trade shows – creating excitement before you launch.
Imagine if you could show the prototype to real users, get their feedback and take that feedback to your development team, all before spending a single dollar writing code.
With our Rapid Prototyping service we’ll take you from idea to prototype in just 3 weeks.
Our Rapid Prototyping service makes this possible… and we do it fast because we know you want it quickly. We’ll guide you through the process of idea to completed prototype in just three weeks!
Still unsure if rapid prototyping is right for you? We recommend it if any of the following statements sound like you and your team:
Here’s a week-by-week break down of our 3-week Rapid Prototyping Process
Start by requesting a free consultation with our team. This helps us get to know each other, learn more about your needs and ensure that Rapid Prototyping is a good fit.
Once you’re ready to move forward we’ll send over our contract and invoice. Between payment and getting started there is usually a one to two week wait.
Creating your prototype kicks off with discovery. Expect to spend 4 hours collaborating with our team on the first day; it’s less time intensive after that.
Together we’ll define and decide on:
Our team will turn all these ideas into your initial black and white screen designs, which we often refer to as wireframes.
We start with black and white to keep everyone focused on the flow and functionality of your mobile app, which makes it easier to spot usability issues early on.
After making the changes we discussed, we’ll create a clickable prototype out of the black and white screen designs. You’ll have one more chance to make changes to features and flow before we move to the next stage.
This is when the design and prototype really comes to life. Our team will add full color and branding to the original black and white designs.
This week we’ll review your mobile app prototype in full color and get feedback from your team. At this point in the schedule there isn’t time to add or change features, but feedback on design aspects like colors or imagery is appropriate.
Following our meeting we’ll make one final round of updates to the look of the screens and create your clickable app prototype for your team.
You’ll have a day to review and make sure we’ve applied everything we discussed. There won’t be time to add new features or change the features we already agreed on, but we can set up another engagement for the next version of your prototype.
Here’s what you get when the 3-week process is done:
Payment is due upfront, to secure your start date and time in our schedule. We accept payment by ACH, wire or credit card (credit card payments incur a 3.5% service charge)
Note: There is no fee to host the prototype. Your prototype will be hosted by InVision, and they provide a forever free plan for one prototype.
