Product Development Strategy

A great product strategy gives your product better odds for success. What makes a good product awesome? What makes a bestseller? What makes something absolutely addictive? How does your product boost productivity? At Bitbean, they understand what it takes to make a great product. So, whether you’re an entrepreneur looking to market a new tech product, or a seasoned business owner looking to revamp your software, they’ve got you covered with an exceptional product development strategy and custom product design. They will look at the best possible options, potential designs, project management, and what’s needed to build the project from beginning to end. Their initial scope assessment gives you a frame of reference to help you understand the complexities of the software and set realistic expectations. You’ll receive a high-level outline of the effort needed to accomplish the objectives in the Minimal Viable Product (MVP). Bitbean understands that custom software is an investment, and like all investments they want to mitigate your risk as much as possible. That’s why the company and its team works to develop an MVP so you can go to market, pick up traction, and see returns on your investment. This happens before they build out costly feature enhancements in your custom software design. As a business owner, you need a crystal-clear understanding of what your product or service needs in order to advance and increase in value. Their data analysis and information gathering process digs deeper into the details of what’s important to your business, target audience, and industry. Bitbean’s hands-on experience provides the tools and insight needed to make informed decisions. During this discovery process, they define goals and objectives, and look at all angles including budget, schedule, technical and engineering needs, and overall size.

Design & UX

How customers use your product tells a valuable story. That’s why their design phase revolves around the user experience (UX) or UX design process. In this collaborative and iterative process, your team collects ideas, validates assumptions, and gathers and reviews feedback. Bitbean puts ideas in front of users, get their feedback, refine them, and repeat. The ideas are represented by paper prototypes or interactive wireframes. They then construct a high-fidelity design with graphics and styles. A clickable prototype is validated with your stakeholders and end-users through user testing sessions. Bitbean assembles a team of highly skilled developers each with their own expertise. They understand that coding is the most complex and time-consuming part of building your software. This means they won’t begin the build phase until you are fully satisfied with the product design. As a result, they'll eliminate costly revisions that can wreak havoc on your budget due to unsatisfactory features and functions that must be thrown out and rebuilt. Plus, they are able to set and meet realistic and aggressive deadlines with dual track agile, sprints, and daily standups.
