The concept of MVP development

Minimum Viable Product is not something you can rush without due research. While keeping functionality to the minimum is crucial to accelerating your time to market and minimizing the costs of development, you must also remember to keep your digital solution viable. 

MVP development requires experience and skill to pinpoint the functionality essential to solving the problem and effectively polish these features for proof of concept with early users. MVP outsourcing allows you to find margin-enhancing product features without going all-in.

Take MVP development of a banking application, for example, where security is one of your top priorities. Here you don’t need features such as Cashback or Scheduled Payments right away. Those can be added further in the development, after your early customers are satisfied with the performance of your core functionality. What you do need to focus on are things like data encryption and multi-factor authentication, so that your early customers would entrust you with keeping their data and assets safe.

Why develop an MVP?

The opportunities MVP development opens to your project.

How we do and do not work

question 1What is an MVP in agile software development?

An MVP in software development stands for Minimum Viable Product. It is the most basic usable version of your software product or service that features only the core functionality, essential to solving the user’s problem.

As soon as an MVP development agency gets things done, and the MVP gains traction and the company is confident they can get their market share with it, the software solution is further improved and extended based on the analysis of metrics and user feedback.

The main purpose of MVP development is to enable faster time to market, attract early adopters, validate the market, and mitigate the risks of further product development.

question 2Why outsource for MVP development?

MVP development outsourcing enables your business to avoid the daunting sourcing and recruitment responsibilities. Instead of wasting months trying to assemble an in-house development team for your project, you can hire a well-coordinated team of MVP development experts from a vendor in mere two weeks. Not only do you get near-instant access to the industry-specific expertise and software development experience your project requires, but you also spend significantly less time and resources on MVP development.The two main reasons startups outsource MVP development to a tech partner are cost efficiency and expertise.

question 3How much does it cost to build a Minimum Viable Product?

The cost of MVP development outsourcing mainly depends on the following:

• the scope and complexity of your software solution
