Why do startups need a discovery phase?

The discovery phase helps create the most in-depth and budget startup development plan possible. A few more reasons why:

Validating an idea

The main objective here is to identify the project feasibility. Once it is done, we analyze the market, competitors, and target audience. Thus, we can create a customer-focused and valuable product.

Planning a budget

The discovery phase allows focusing on the core features as per the project roadmap. It makes iterations predictable and budget stable with no additional cost involved.

Finalizing software requirements

Any uncertainties make development more complex and expensive. Well-thought-out requirements reduce the chances of creating a large backlog of uncovered pitfalls. Requirements also provide the founder with a clear and precise budget estimate.

How do we provide the discovery phase as a service?

You tell us about your idea

You have a startup idea to make the world a better place. We help you define its core values as early as possible to bring a market-driven product to life.

  • Who is the target audience, and why?
  • Why do you want to build this particular startup?
  • It would help us to become a part of your vision.

We conduct researches

We follow Lean Startup and Design Thinking to discover the problem you are going to solve.

Discovery starts with analyzing current solutions existing on the market.

Once we conduct all the necessary market/users research and analyze the competitors, we come up with an offer concerning the product features.

We provide you with wireframes

We start implementing the user experience by designing prototypes.

Our designers create wireframes. It helps us to build a concept users will love and show them all the values it brings.

After feedback rounds end, we create a clickable prototype.

We create specifications

We focus on the values of the product and use an iterative process of testing business hypotheses.

It helps us to create data-driven business requirements.

Technical requirements include the roles, use cases, and system requirements.

This lets us outline the scope of work in an easy and concise manner.

  • Project documentation

I am very pleased with the work with the SpdLoad team. It seems that the Ukrainian software development market is very large, but it is very difficult to find a company that combines quality, speed and price at the highest level. SpdLoad is a company that always gives more than you expect. I recommend this team.
