How it works

We can generalize what our process is in our service in four phases-

Phase 1

Project Discussion

We will work with your organization to understand the project in great depth and scope out the minimum viable product (MVP). Once we agree on the MVP, the project lead will write up a statement of work to be shared with the nonprofit.

Phase 2

Building the Minimum Viable Product (MVP)

After the statement of work passes, our developers work in teams and start building the minimum viable product (MVP) and share their progress with the clients regularly for feedback. Once, the MVP is ready, it is shared with the clients for a thorough inspection and review following which it enters user testing.

Phase 3

User Testing

Once the MVP is ready, we add various analytics plugins and survey tools and then distribute the MVP among a wide array of audiences for testing. In the meanwhile, the developers continue building additional functionality and also resolve bugs as they arise.

Phase 4

Product Polish & Hand-off

At the end of the user testing phase, the team makes their final tweaks and fixes any issues that may arise during user testing. They then hand-off the project to the clients and if needed help them configure it.
