Discovery Phase

Truly bespoke software cannot be made without prior research & analysis. So, if you have an app idea and nothing else - this consulting service is dedicated to you!

During Discovery Phase software development workshops, we can provide first wireframes and prototypes of your app and verify your idea together. In the result, our developers are also able to ask more questions to understand the purpose of specific features and think about the most appropriate technical solutions.

Let’s create something amazing together!
