OUR APPROACH

Our Software Product Discovery
Services Process

Discovery phase services for product development
take several detailed stages.

Project Initiation

The process begins with project initiation, where the discovery team engages with the client to understand their business goals, challenges, as well as functional and non-functional requirements. This step involves gathering initial information and setting expectations.

Research and Analysis

Artkai’s discovery team conducts in-depth research and analysis to gain insights into the target market, industry trends, and competitors. They gather data through market research, user research, and competitive analysis to understand user needs, pain points, and market gaps.

Stakeholder Interviews and Workshops

The team conducts interviews and workshops with key stakeholders, such as business owners, product managers, and subject matter experts. These sessions aim to gather requirements, align stakeholders, and uncover valuable insights to shape the product vision.

User Research and Persona Creation

We employ user research methods like interviews, surveys, and usability testing to understand user behaviors, preferences, and needs. Based on this data, we create user personas representing different target user groups.

Ideation and Concept Generation

Our team generates and refines ideas for the software product through collaborative workshops and brainstorming sessions. We explore various concepts, features, and functionalities that align with user needs and business goals.

Prototyping and Validation

The team creates prototypes or wireframes to visualize the product's user interface and interaction flow. These prototypes are then validated through usability testing and feedback collection from target users, helping to iterate and refine the product concept.

Documentation and Roadmapping

Shaping the final documentation of key findings, requirements, user personas, and a product roadmap. This documentation is the foundation for the subsequent development phases and guides the project team.

HOW WE WORK

Our Collaboration Models

Time

Time & Material

That's the most affordable and flexible model for companies wishing to close some minor technical tasks. You only pay the staff's hourly rates and can get an experienced Artkai coder, designer, or tester on board for a few days to resolve a challenge. 

Dedicated

Dedicated Team

If you have larger tasks for us or experience a tech stack gap in your company, it's reasonable to consider the dedicated team's recruitment. A separate team is compiled at Artkai in line with your project needs to work together with your in-house staff and solve the tasks at hand. 

Project-Based

Project-Based Work

Why overload your in-house team with the development work if you can outsource the entire project to us? Project-based arrangements give full responsibility for project management and tracking to the Artkai team, allowing you to focus on the core business activities.
