Skillset: Rapid Prototyping / POC
Challenge: To ascertain the viability and associated costs. Whilst scoping out an idea into a business.
Result: The idea had developed into multiple application functions and revenue streams.
With any idea for a start up there is a lot of risk. These entrepreneurs wanted us to support and test assumptions through creating an interactive prototype.
To make sure that costs were clear and did not go out of hand for the client we were able to fully scope out the entire build cost of the project to deliver.
However, on this occasion the rapid prototype served its purpose and the clients once understanding the wider costs involved with marketing and funding a start up on top of development costs was unfortunately prohibitive.
But it was crucial that the client discovered this prior to committing to full product development costs.
