The client was a startup looking to provide a field management solution for streamlining the trash collection process.
With just an idea in hand and a couple of hand-drawn sketches of possible wireframes, the client was looking for guidance to develop an MVP for testing the feasibility of his idea in the market.
We proposed going ahead with a product discovery to define the market, understand the capabilities of the solution and to translate the drawings into visual prototypes.Considering the actual usage of the application and the target users, we recommended developing a mobile application for Android and iOS to ensure mobility.
The MVP was launched successfully in 7 weeks at a sub-$10K budget for product discovery and MVP development. Since launch, the app got traction with the field team and the core features used for the MVP helped them to streamline their work efficiently. Moreover, it allowed the managers to monitor the productivity of the field team which had an impact on overall revenue.
With the development of the app, the field task force was now able to get more visibility into their daily operations and it enabled them to minimize incidents through proper tracking and resolution. For the end customers, the improved service quality earned their trust in the brand which led to increased retention with the service provider.
The architecture of the proposed solution was ensured to be flexible enough to accommodate further upgrades and feature development. This enabled features like Geo-fencing to be integrated easily without requiring a complete revamp of the solution.
Yes, it is common and highly recommended to iterate and improve your MVP based on user feedback and market insights. Launching an MVP is just the beginning of the product development journey, and continuous improvement is essential.
There are several common mistakes to avoid when developing an MVP. First, don’t over engineer your product. MVPs should be simple and easy to use. Second, don’t try to do too much. MVPs should focus on one core feature. Third, don’t wait for perfection. MVPs are not meant to be perfect. They are meant to be tested and improved.
Engage in user research activities such as interviews, surveys, and usability testing. Gather insights directly from your target audience to understand their pain points and preferences, and incorporate that feedback into your MVP development process.
Key metrics may include user acquisition, user engagement, conversion rates, retention, and feedback from users. These metrics can help you assess the effectiveness of your MVP in solving the problem and meeting user needs.
Not necessarily. Investors understand that seed and pre-seed startups are in the early stages of development. However, having a tangible MVP or a proof of concept can significantly increase your chances of securing funding.
There are several reasons why it is important for seed and pre-seed startups to develop an MVP. First, MVPs can help startups to validate their ideas and get feedback from customers. This feedback can be used to improve the product and make it more likely to be successful. Second, MVPs can help startups to save money. By building an MVP, startups can test their ideas and get feedback before investing in a full-scale development. This can help to reduce the risk of wasting money on a product that is not successful. Third, MVPs can help startups to attract investors. Investors are more likely to invest in a startup that has a working product and is getting traction with customers.
There are a few different ways to build an MVP. One option is to build it yourself. If you have the skills and the time, this can be a great way to save money. However, if you don’t have the skills or the time, you may want to consider hiring a development team.
Another option is to use a no-code or low-code platform. These platforms allow you to build a product without writing any code. This can be a great option if you don’t have a lot of technical experience
There are three main types of MVPs:
