At Silicon Rhino, we love to build MVPs. It’s the reason we exist. We have a passion for bringing your ideas to life, and thinking about the wider implications of your product roadmap.
Software is a great enabler to fixing problems and creating great experiences. Ubiquitous internet and availability of devices mean that it’s easier than ever to create solutions that work for you.
Before starting your MVP, there are three areas that require some thought to ensure the best possible outcome for your investment...
Ahead of investing in your MVP build, it’s essential to validate your idea. This will allow you to make informed decisions about what should go into the build, and even whether to go ahead at all. We can help you in creating a prototype to test the solution with your target audience.
Silicon Rhino has strong expertise in product design - ensuring that the wireframes provide a delightful user experience and the user interface can be clearly understood. Equally, we’re happy to work with designs and prototypes created by your team.
Keep it lean
We are strong believers that fewer features done right are better than a bloated MVP, and experience has shown us it's more beneficial to keep the first build of your product small, saving budget for iterations after launch. We can help you decide which functionality is crucial for the first version of your product.
Silicon Rhino’s approach to MVP development means that build and running costs are kept efficient, whilst making sure it’s ready for the next set of features, and can easily scale. We look for opportunities to leverage trusted third-party providers for things such as payments, user authentication, and cloud infrastructure, allowing you to focus on building the features that are core to your business.
Your MVP is just the start of your product journey. We believe that consideration of the further development path of your product at this point is crucial in ensuring you have the appropriate technology foundations to meet those ambitions.
This will allow us to build your product with the future in mind, making sure it's ready for the next set of features, and while trying to avoid as much technical debt as possible.
Defining a product roadmap can be daunting, but our workshops are designed to provide clarity and prioritise all the ideas for future functionality.
