When you've got a software idea you'd like to validate immediately without actually developing a full product, prototyping or rapid prototyping is what you need and in this post, we'll explain why.
When most people think of the word ‘prototype’, they imagine expensive, high-tech products. The truth is, prototypes come in all shapes and sizes, including software. While they may not always be high-tech, bug-free or fully functional, they are always essential to the product development process.
Thoughtful teams develop products that are useful and valuable to their target users.
At Startup House, ensuring a seamless user experience is among our top priorities, which is why we firmly believe in building products that are based on user testing.
By using design methods that are based on people's real experiences, we develop high-quality digital products. We recognize that the revenue-generating features of a quality digital product are those that make it most easily accessible and necessary to the people who use it.
Therefore, we believe that conducting user testing improves user retention and results in a more viable product.
User testing is a process whereby users of a product or service are asked to provide feedback on their experience.
You can and should conduct user tests with both pre-release and existing versions of products or services.
Testing helps startups identify and solve many problems, including those related to user experience, product design, and market fit.
By getting feedback from real users early on, startups can avoid costly mistakes and ensure their products are designed with users' needs in mind.
