    Why Discovery Services for Software Development?

    Did you know 45% of software development projects go over budget and 66% of technology projects end in partial or total failure? That’s why we help business owners, startup founders, technical leaders, R&D managers, and even digital masterminds find clear answers to three essential questions during their software development and discovery phase service:

    • How long will the development lifecycle take?
    • How much does my business need to invest?
    • What are the risks and how can those risks be avoided?

    We Know Software Discovery Services

    A lack of clear requirements and a poor project explanation are some of the most common reasons why software products fail. Avoid these pitfalls and more by having our team with you every step of the way. ProCoders follows these steps for every client.


    Dig into every business aspect of your project in order to define and outline its structure and overall strategy.

    Our Structure

    ProCoders takes the time to explore your unique business model, and both the external and internal needs of your customers. In order to expedite your business growth, we identify key success factors for your software application.
    We conduct the research you need through workshops, plus two to three brainstorming sessions per week when you partner with us for discovery services for software development.

    We start the discovery phase service for a software project by having the business analyst dig into your idea in order to understand the logic and intricacies of your vision. We want to appreciate your idea on a deep level so we can deliver from the very beginning. After we have a clear understanding of your idea and business goals, we create a clear structure backed by technical research and development. We identify product features and what specific technologies your idea should be built on. Do you need a matching application that works on desktop and mobile? Do you need filters, geolocation services, user roles, subscription plans, and more? We’ve got you covered. Plus, our team can analyze your competitors so you have a clearer view of the market.

    We work closely with you to understand and visualize your idea. You communicate your outlook and goals for the product so we can deliver based on your specific needs. With that feedback and additional research, we provide detailed guidance for product development that includes product features, performance needs and more. This stage of discovery services includes UI mockups & wireframes.

    After there is a clear vision, we move onto technical research. We learn the ins and outs of the industry and identify the best ways to reach your goals. In this stage, product features and the specific technologies your idea should be built on are identified. We also conduct a technology stack comparison, develop technical documentation and provide third-party API testing reports.

    We gather feedback to determine what is most important to you. When do you need certain deliverables? What elements of the project are most important to you? We answer those questions and more through defining the key features of your application in order to meet business requirements and the expected discovery phase price.

    You won’t lose your way with our software development and discovery phase service. Without a roadmap, you’re bound to get lost so that is why we help you stay on course by clearly defining business goals, project scope and short- and long-term targets. You receive development iterations, a team composition and a risk estimation.

    Don’t get boxed in. Instead, let us optimize the plan at every step along the way, based on the specific needs of your project. We deliver agile services with the flexibility for you to make on-demand changes to any specifications. Plus, we stick around even after the software is complete. If you need additional guidance or have problems, we are there.

    At the final stage of software discovery services we deliver a completed statement of work with a breakdown of cost estimates and suggested timeframes. We make sure you have a clear understanding of the scope of work, the project timeline and the expenses.
