This is where we “whiteboard” your idea. Talk about the market, discuss market needs and assess other business realities regarding your idea. During this process we’ll also strive to lock down your high level feature and functionality needs.
At the end of this process, Xceleration Labs will produce a “white paper” that not only describes your business idea, but also defines the high level features and functionality of your product idea.
From this white paper, you should be able to proceed in multiple directions, such as a creating a fully fleshed out business plan, investor pitch, and/or product specifications document.
As part of the initial step to visualize your product idea, Xceleration Labs will take your “high level” document and break it down into, what features and pages will be provided in order to plan and then proceed to implement your idea.
Xceleration Labs encourages an iterative process, where you help direct the project.
During this process, Xceleration Labs will provide you with what’s called a wireframe. The intent of the wireframe is to provide an approximate sense of how the idea would work. A wireframe is basically the “storyboard” before one begins “shooting,” to use a filmmaking analogy.
It is during this stage that we’ll DESIGN THE IDEA, that is to say, add some “fanciness” or art design.
These next few steps are about building the product.
At this stage, Xceleration Labs will create a demo product with full functionality and art designed. All of the buttons will work and it’ll look “pretty.” All of the data is dummied and not persistent, as the data won’t be saved.
During Xceleration Labs’ iterative process, we endeavor to deliver something that works every two weeks throughout this phase.
During this stage, Xceleration Labs will hook up the back end. You will have a fully functioning product that anyone can test.
Do you have your own team? (See Tech Advisor) We’ll be handing over the keys to whatever we produce. Although Xceleration Labs could run the product for you on an interim basis, we’re unlikely to be your long-term solution.
