Startup Development Consulting Process

A2 Design is a startup development consulting firm that provides customers with the required assistance from business idea validation to after-launch support and maintenance.

1. Exploration

The first phase of our startup development consulting process is the exploration, in which we collect and analyze all the information about a new project. During this stage, we try to determine the goals and requirements of the future startup product and understand how it should solve customer's problems. We ask customers what issues they want to solve and create a list of desired features. The more information our startup consultants get at this stage, the easier it is for our developers to define project complexity correctly and provide customers with more accurate time and cost estimates.

2. Design

As a part of the design phase of our startup development consulting, we create wireframes and interactive prototypes of your startup product that let us visualize your product's flow. They serve as the skeletal framework that both designers and software developers should follow. Over time, these wireframes are transformed into interactive prototypes.

3. Development Sprints

The development sprints are our core principles of our startup development consulting services. The Agile methodology brings you better communication, early and predictable delivery, and better control over the project. It allows us to deliver the best startup products and make changes to them easily during the process of their development. In each sprint, our team focuses on a particular functionality which is delivered in the form of a usable product at the end of that particular sprint.

4. Release

After manual and automated tests performed by our QA engineers did not show any bugs or glitches and proven that the whole system works as it should, our startup development team deploys the finalized application to production. From then onward, the digital product becomes available to end-users. After that, we create release notes for each new version of the software product.

5. Support

With the help of our support service, we will continue to deliver value to your end-users as your startup project evolves. Our startup development consulting team will help you stay up-to-date by fixing reported bugs and adding new features based on user feedback. We offer two different support plans (hourly and fixed). For the hourly option, we can fix bugs reported by end-users or add new features to your application at a set amount of hours for a monthly fee. On the other hand, if you want our startup development consulting team to work on any tasks that last at least eighty working hours, then our fixed plan makes more sense for you.
