User research

To gather user insight and understand the market for our app, we carried out user research among a group of people which helped us in understanding the potential of the application and how we can keep it user-oriented.

Product discovery workshop

The primary objective of an application is to meet the client’s expectations and serve users the purpose of what it is actually created for. In order to understand the premise of the solution, we held a session with our client and gained knowledge of the features and functionalities they want us to implement in the solution. Apart from that, we also acquire familiarity with market opportunities and the audience we are targeting.

We also discussed through the critical business challenges that may come up during the development phase. This workshop session helped us understand and get clarity of the client’s viewpoint such as what would be the highlights of the application, how to keep it more user-centric etc. By the end of a discovery workshop, we outlined business goals and streamlined the entire development process.
