App Development

mVISE is the first port of call for mobile business solutions.
With years of comprehensive experience, we provide you with assistance in the development of holistic mobile strategies – from consultation and creative services through to technical implementation, roll-out, and measurement of success.

How we work

Every client is different and every project is unique. Just as we use certain methods for our software development projects we like to have a methodical approach to understanding User Needs, as well as your Vision, the needs of your Stakeholders, and those of your organisation.
This understanding is best accomplished through a collaborative process so that we can benefit from your User, workflow, and market insights in order to help you de-risk the project through adoption of the most appropriate methodologies, tools, and technologies.

Workshop Examples:
Ideation

Let us accompany you in first understanding the problem or opportunities to be addressed.
We bring more than 10yrs experience in Innovation management, product development, ideation and design.

Within this 4-6h workshop we will engage your stakeholders and experts in a structured and gamified workshop based on proven User-centric methodologies to discover and document:

  • Goal Statements
  • Potential Problems
  • User groups & Personae
  • Workflows & Potential Features

Results:

  • Project Brief
Projekt Structure

At this point you have a clear idea of the WHAT – which features and functions your mobile digital solution should have. Our next thoughts should be directed at HOW and WHO. Our experience of software development methodologies, either stand-alone, or in coordination with FW and HW development, allows us to help you select the best methods and processes to meet the needs of the project and your organisation. Projects are implemented by people working and communicating within structures and processes, we will also help you to ensure the roles of the people within the project are properly defined.

In many projects it is extremely easy to lose track of the WHY & the WHO. If we didn’t already help you to build User Personae, we can do that with you. This is always a fun activity and it is core to User-Centric design (see also Design Thinking and LEAN design) as it creates a lasting impression of exactly who the users are, together with their specific needs and motivations.

As a business you will also want to understand how your digital solution performs. We can also help you develop a number of focussed KPIs that will allow you not only to understand the impact of the completed digital solution, but also to help prioritise features for development.

In summary:

  • Discussion & selection of development methodologies
  • Discussion and agreement of Project roles
  • Review of User Personas
  • KPI development

Results:

  • Requirements document
Stakeholder Mapping & Planning

You are now almost ready to begin development – you understand the planned feature set, you have decided on a methodology. You also understand your target Users and the the key people and roles within the project team. But wait, did we pay attention to understanding and mapping our stakeholders? At the simplest level, we should at least answer the following questions: Who needs to know what, when & how; Who can either create or remove hurdles within the project.

In summary:

  • Stakeholder-Mapping
  • Communication plan
  • Risk analysis
  • Project/Release plan

Test-Drive our Development Experience

If we already completed a workshop together, and both agree that we are ready to start development, then mVISE is prepared to offer a limited ‘test-drive’ in the development phase.
If you are not completely satisfied, there is no need to pay!

Our Methodologies

We can work with you in multiple ways during the concept and development phases and will gladly advise you regarding the methodology that we believe best fits your budget, timeline, organisation, and culture.

Learn more

Agile projects, especially working in ‘Scrums’ enables iterative development, which increases opportunities to get User and Stakeholder feedback and reduces the risk that functionality does not meet expectations. Agile cooperations also mean that a detailed specification document is not required, which can accelerate initial development. However, working in an agile environment does require a certain mindset and active project involvement that many organisations struggle to adapt to. 

Traditional “Waterfall” software development is much more linear in nature and can be easier for organisations to accept, especially when the project is based on a ‘fixed price’. However, this usually requires a detailed specification document as basis for the fixed price. During the development phase, the client can select how involved they wish to be and far less active participation is required when compared with Agile projects. A significant risk of waterfall projects is that requirements change during the development and change usually has a price.

No one method is perfect, and mVISE has no interest in doggedly following any single development method – there are a number of approaches, for instance, that blend aspects of Agile and Waterfall. Our interest is in finding the sweet spot so that we share risk with our clients in-order that we all are motivated in generating a positive project outcome and winning Applications !
