When seeking digital development quotes, figures are often given too quickly and are based upon inaccurate perceptions of what you need. This results in a broad range of uncertain costs and timings that are usually completely wrong.
Through a series of workshops, our unique analysis-led approach rapidly gathers requirements, maps out features and development roadmaps. Once process is complete we will provide you with an accurate quote and if we’re not the best fit to develop the project we will also go out to market on your behalf, present your functional specifications to agencies and gather a range of quotes for you.
Detailed functional specification benefits:
We always start with an initial free ideas workshop. Come and spend and hour with us and we’ll begin mapping out your idea with our unique process.
We always capture your commercial goals and keep these in mind throughout the entire process. Your roadmap will then usually map on to the order of priority you set for your goals.
This is an important high-level overview of how your entire platform fits together.
One of the most useful sections of the functional specification, we capture every feature and map them on to a roadmap based on a prioritised order you set.
A one page document of creatively rendered versions of your platform designed to bring it to life. Perfect for sharing with stakeholders to give them a clear overview of what you’re building in one concise page.
Wireframes are one of the most important elements of the Functional Specification and make up the majority of the document. When annotated they make it really clear what each screen needs to do.
This is the first pass on creative renderings of your platform. Usually these are based on wireframes and ahead of completing the full creative renderings to make sure the direction is correct.
This is an extended creative document showcasing your platform. An excellent way to present your platform to stakeholders including investors.
There are always important screens in a platform which are important to see creatively rendered. By creating them before development begins it makes development much easier and allows you to tweak functionality upfront.
An excellent way to showcase your platform to stakeholders including investors, customers, and users. It’s a great way to demonstrate functionality and progress on a project ahead of development.
A high-level document detailing how the platform will come together. A functional specification typically does not pre-suppose specific technologies but this diagram is a useful document to capture the essential components of a platform.
In order for the development team to hit the ground running, this involves taking the creative renderings and exporting specific creative elements to be consumed by the development process.
The more detail we have the more accurate a quote can become. A ranged development quote is designed to provide a range to guide you when setting budgets.
When we have more information, we can provide a more accurate quote based on your requirements. This will tell you how much you’ll need for development and how long the project would take.
When we’re a great fit to develop a project, we will happily provide a quote. There are many occasions when an alternative team is a more perfect fit which could be due to team size, available resource, or cost and timeline quotes. We are very well connected with the development community and will happily present your functional specification to trusted development teams to gather a range of quotes on your behalf.
