Surely you’ve heard of Minimal Viable Product concept or MVP. Unlike a complex finished product that has all of the desired capabilities, an MVP stands for an output having just the functions needed to satisfy the basic requirements. These functions, however, are sufficient for users to provide their evaluation and give their reviews about the delivered solution.
An MVP is sometimes confused with a prototype; although they are not the same.
So, if you intend to save on initial project introduction by presenting only the key possibilities it provides to all the interested persons and gathering valuable reviews from your small group of clients after that, starting with a prototype MVP and holding market tests for it seems to be a reasonable path. This would be a cost-effective scenario.
The best way is to have specialists who have ready software modules in their arsenal; these modules may be utilized to speed up the development process. Currently, at ISS Art we are working on such modules creation. With them, we will have a possibility to build an MVP prototype for your needs quickly.
Based on our programming experience, we would say: don’t rush to build the whole project at once! Divide it on milestones instead and implement them sequentially. Begin with the most important, or the most complex part, create an MVP for it. Through many years of experience, we have built dozens of MVPs that turned out to be prosperous further. We know for sure how to build them – reach out to us if you need our help.
