Technology and user focus form the basic DNA of our product specialists and they come with niche skill sets that are key towards building the right product, in the right way.
What We Do
We help you to plan and deploy a unified product vision by aligning business efforts, processes, and technology to meet people’s changing expectations. We understand the need for businesses, to ensure they create and sustain great products that customers love. Our business service offerings are categorized into five broad product lifecycle stages.
Customer Insights & Validation
Our objective here is to understand the needs, motivation and emotions of your customer. We get to the root of ‘WHAT’ will bring real delight to them irrespective of what is obviously put in front of us.
Our goal here is to help you identify the differentiation that will work for your product/ service and your customers. Differentiation is the key to every product or software. As a product services company, it is important for us to understand your position in the market in order to identify your competitive advantage.
We help you assess the viability and profitability of the product across the investment required. This will enable you to make informed investment decisions for the product.
Customer segmentation and target market sizing enables you to decide on where to divert your resources to get the most out of them.
Defining a product strategy is important to align all the activities of the product life cycle towards a single goal.
Business Model Plan
Our goal here is to help you define a business plan that is built around the new product/ feature/ service. This enables you to visualize your offerings, execution, and finances in a simple way.
Personas & Scenarios
We figure out the various user groups in the identified target segment and list the different use cases with respect to which they will interface with the product. Target customer segment just gives a high-level idea of the market we want to target. There can be multiple personas identified within the customer segment. It is important to study them in detail to ensure the software products that we develop are not just of real value to your users but also delights them in every way.
Our product development services are designed to converge the business, customer and product goals into something that is tangible and can be taken up for implementation.
User Experience Design
For us, design is not just how things look but also how it works. We invest equal time and effort to define the user interface and workflows that result from user touchpoints in the product and your business.
Our team balances the short term and long-term business goals to create the product roadmap, considering user needs, product drivers and technology investment.
User Story Grooming
On finalizing the release plan, our team brings together the cross-functional teams towards building the product, feature by feature.
Our project managers understand the importance of principles over practice. We understand the importance of coordinating different moving parts during project execution and we work towards building synchronous teams that deliver results.
Go to Market
Our go-to-market strategies define how a company will reach its customers and achieve strategic advantage. Our product development teams can build a blueprint for delivering a product or service to the end user while giving due importance to pricing and distribution.

How We Do It

This team will take complete ownership and responsibility of your product; from understanding your business, market, and users to defining the strategy, planning, development, and launch. We understand that this is a continuous and iterative process and ensure our efforts translate into end user delight.
