Grow Competitive Advantage by Testing Your Ideas

Moving from an innovative idea to a high-quality product takes planning and skills. Softjourn has the right talent pool to bring your ideas to life, as well as firm up your product definition by understanding your technical needs.

If you have an existing project, we can set up a dedicated team to examine your current architecture, codebase, deployment approach, and pipelines to ensure that everything is in place to start working. Once we outline your goals, Softjourn has the technical know-how to generate a new solution or rewrite the current on—and give you a new direction for product development.

Why Work With Softjourn

Softjourn has a three-pronged, iterative approach when it comes to the first phase of the product definition process:

  • Interview—to understand the needs and gather all the necessary information
  • Map—to draw up plans and identify potential gaps
  • Document—to generate trust and share information

The discovery process is highly interactive and requires client participation. Softjourn will conduct working sessions with you and your team to analyze each of the functionalities and workflows.

Working one-hour sessions are typically held twice a week. In-between sessions, Softjourn’s business analyst/product manager defines workflows and functionalities using visuals and texts in order to present how potential users might flow through the system.

Discovery Phase Deliverables

The most valuable deliverables that the client gets at the end of the Discovery Phase are the Software Requirements Specifications document (SRS), timeline and pricing estimation for the entire development process.

What Makes Discovery Phase Valuable

1. Evaluation of System Requirements

The discovery phase helps our customers to think through the entire product definition process in order to see where there might be gaps in knowledge and potential risks, and to gain a better understanding of the development phases. 

2. Detailed Documentation
2. Detailed Documentation

One of the biggest benefits of the discovery phase is the documentation, which explains the whole development process with all of its stages in detail. Our clients can later use this to attract investors and have a more in-depth understanding of the overall process. 

3. Accurate Cost and Time Estimate

Using a discovery phase, you will get a more accurate estimate of the costs and time required to develop an MVP of your service. Once clients have a clear understanding of how much money they’ll have to invest in the process, they can inform investors and plan their future steps.

Functional vs Non Functional MVPs: What a Startup Should Do?
Functional vs Non Functional MVPs: What a Startup Should Do?

Product ideas based on presumptions about the market trends can go in the wrong direction when the market suddenly shifts. That’s when your company needs to validate your idea by building a minimal viable product (MVP). Data is at the heart of every MVP model, which the develop-release-measure-iterate loop makes so successful in identifying the core functions of a potential product.
