MVP Development Services

Have an idea for a profitable Digital Product, SaaS or Mobile App? Put it to the test with SoftFormance! We offer MVP development for startups and can create a lean version of your software within just six weeks!

Why do you need an MVP?

There are several reasons why MVP development services for startups are important. You can learn about them in detail from our article. Here are the key points.

Save money and effort

Save time

Test business idea

Attract investment

Save money and effort

Most startups change their objectives many times before they find the product that fits the market. A smaller product with fewer features makes it easier. Therefore, keep your solution lean to experiment more freely.

Save time

If your product is going to fail, it is better to learn about it faster. Thus, you will have more time and money to try something new. An MVP should minimize the time for a software product launch. Also, a quicker release fosters success by differentiating the product and providing early feedback.

Test business idea

An MVP with a few key features is sufficient to test your business idea. Moreover, it won’t take much time to create. If your MVP is successful, you can analyze early feedback and build on it later, adding more features. All within 4 short weeks.

Attract investment

Working prototypes and MVPs that generate revenue are more attractive to investors than just ideas. To get funds for your startup, build the MVP first. You can test it and show a functional product with the base of early adopters.

Why do startups choose us?

SoftFormance, an MVP software development services provider, has several aces up its sleeve

Client Focus

We strive to make our clients satisfied. Our specialists write high-quality code while staying within budget and schedule. However, our focus is building and maintaining efficient communication with the clients.

Systematic Approach to Work

Creativity is valuable for creating unique products. However, we believe that it should be employed wisely. Our team appreciates the discipline to proceed from one milestone to another, delivering results on schedule.

Software that Solves Problems

We view software development as a search for new ways to solve an existing problem. Our company and each member of our team are problem solvers. We employ innovative strategies and tools to build your MVP quickly and efficiently.

Precedence of Result over Process

We love building software. However, we always keep our end goal in mind. Our software development workflow is carefully organized. We offer clear deadlines and landmarks to illustrate the progress.

Should you partner with us to build your MVP?

We will both benefit from our partnership if you agree with the following statements.

Sharing information is crucial for success

To create the best possible solution, we should clearly understand the business goals and processes behind it. After analyzing all available information, we will offer you the leanest product that satisfies your needs. We must understand the business case behind each product decision so that we can craft the best possible solution to support it.
Once we do, the leanest solution that satisfies the requirement is made.

Building a startup requires time, money, and effort

Owning a tech startup is not a bed of roses. As a founder, you must be prepared to put time, money, and heart into your endeavor. If you are determined to see the project through, we will do our best to help.

Communication should be unhindered and efficient

We appreciate being in direct contact with the decision-makers. Thus, we can streamline the communication with the client and build just the right software. We love working with bootstrapped startups with no large hierarchies.

How do we create an MVP?

We’ve used more than a decade of our experience to streamline the tech startup creation process. This is how we proceed from collecting ideas to an MVP launch and beyond.

Step 1. List goals and ideas

Firstly, we want to understand why the client needs the software. After that, we collect product ideas and access their technical viability. Those efforts allow us to roughly estimate the project cost.

Step 2. Create product strategy

Before planning the development process, we help our clients to come up with the software product strategy. It includes the definition of the unique value proposition, monetization possibilities, the ways for users to find the software, and so on.

Step 3. Design product roadmap

The product strategy transforms into exact software requirements and features to fulfill them. We define the scope for an MSP, the Minimum Sellable Product — the concept we prefer to use over MVP as more precise. Our team creates screen mockups, defines the technical stack, and describes a detailed project plan.

Step 4. Develop MSP

As development goes on, we keep in touch with the client offering status updates meetings, demo sessions, and so on. We strive to be as agile as possible. In some cases, our team can adjust its course in the middle of the project.

Step 5. Launch MSP

We prepare a production server, set up external APIs, backups, dependencies, configure payment gateways, etc. When the product gets its first users, we collect early feedback that serves as a valuable source of insights.

Step 6. Support and maintain software

Our team offers customer support and eliminates any problems if they appear. At the same time, we help an MSP to grow into a full-fledged solution, designing and developing new features.

Tips on choosing an MVP development company

Looking for a reliable MVP development partner? Here is what we can advise from our large experience in hiring software developers.

Study portfolios

Ideally, you should choose a development agency that has successfully built something very similar to what you want. That means your partner has the skills and experience to fulfill the project swiftly and cost-effectively.

Get references

Ask each of your shortlisted agencies for two or three references. Contact their existing or former clients with questions about the collaboration and satisfaction with the results. Ask whether the projects are still running and if the solutions are easy to support and scale.

Ensure business savviness

Your MVP development partner should go beyond the tech side of the project. This company also has to do its best to understand your business objectives. Thus, it will be able to suggest the most fitting technological solutions.

Don’t fall for freebies

An agency with multiple satisfied clients is often over-booked. The developers’ time in such agencies is expensive and wouldn’t be offered for free. Ask your prospective partner for an introductory workshop. If you get an invoice, it is a good sign.

Look for agencies with similar values and approaches

Partners should have similar mindsets to cooperate successfully. Make sure to study the process of the agency you want to work with. Talk to different people and get the feeling of the company’s culture and atmosphere.

Start small

Starting a new partnership with a large project is risky. Keep the first cooperation small and get quick results. After that, you can decide whether things go as you expected. If they do, you can trust your partner with something more serious.
