The Beginning

First things first, when working with us you'll go through the following process below to start your project.
  • 1. Solutions and Values Analysis

    First, you'll sit down with a Business Analyst to gather product solutions and establish custom solution values.
  • 2. Wireframing (First Iteration)

    Our design team will get straight to work to transform those initial requirements into several high-level mockups.
  • 3. Define Minimum Viable Product (MVP)

    Our team will then review requirements and prioritize the minimum viable product (MVP) 4-5 days after the discovery kickoff.
  • 4. Prioritize Backlog

    Don't worry! All remaining scope that did not make the MVP will be our future product backlog.
  • 5. Finalize and Present Wireframes (Second Iteration)

    After completing those previous steps, you and your stakeholders will sit down with our whole team to review high-level mockups.
  • 6. Define Project Options

    Codelation takes all requirements, expected schedule, and ballpark budget internally to form 1-3 project options to form specialized recommendation and estimate options for you.
  • 7. Make Recommendation

    Codelation will present and review recommendations with you.
  • 8. Develop a High-Level Roadmap

    Once you've decided on the option that works best for you, we will develop a project roadmap for that recommendation.
  • 9. Finalize Decision

    Almost there! We set another meeting with you and your stakeholders to finalize the project option. If everything looks in order, then you'll sign a Statement of Work and we'll get to work!

We are excited to provide software development services for your business. Let's get started!

The Next Steps

After the discovery process, we make sure our clients are prepared to become an active partner within the project's lifespan.
