To those who don’t have much to do with programming on a daily basis, it probably seems like creating a mobile or web application is a complicated and lengthy process, requiring the involvement of many people. And we do agree with that point, but there is an exception to this rule, and it is called MVP.
If you are not yet 100% sure if your idea has a chance of success, you are at the stage of looking for an investor and want to show the value of your product, or you have a small budget, and you know that your business will grow with a mobile or web application – then MVP is for you.
MVP (Minimum Viable Product) is a product with a minimum number of functionalities, the purpose of which is to verify the idea and study the needs, requirements, and opinions of customers, but also to confront the concept with the market. It’s still your product, but created in such a way that you can show its benefits with the least possible effort. Building an MVP is a significant time and money-saver, but what else is there?
you have the chance to show investors a tangible product, not just talk about its vision,
with a working product, you can also attract additional investors and the funds needed to develop your idea and business,
you can show a working product much faster,
you can assess the cooperation with the developer – if you did well in creating the MVP (minimum viable product), it promises a high chance of long-term success,
you test your app’s chance of success – it’s much easier to research market demand with a working app and not just mock-ups (visualizations),
you can test your application in terms of UX / UI,
you save a lot of money if it turns out that your application needs a lot of tweaking,
thanks to the data you can acquire in the tests, you can improve your product and tailor it to the needs of your audience.
– selecting the right technologies and tools to build a basic version of the application and later expand it with additional functionalities,
– researching user feedback and collecting it will require a lot of energy and effort, but you can rest assured that it will be worth it,
– key functionalities of your product may change – you need to be open to changes and suggestions.
Each of the above-mentioned challenges can be dealt with by choosing the right technology partner who can share their experience, identify the best technologies, and suggest further directions for the development of the application.
