Product Discovery Services
Make your product exceptional and avoid risks from the start.
What is product discovery?
The product discovery is the first step of custom software development. At this phase, we perform complex research and analysis of the client's idea to develop a solution that meets all their needs. The discovery sessions reveal all the software’s strong and weak points at the earliest stage. With product discovery services, our clients will be able to reduce risks, increase efficiency, minimize development costs, and avoid rework.
Make informed decisions
A strong foundation for your future product
Dealing with numerous startups we defined how important it is to create a solution that faces the real needs of the final users. Thus, during the product discovery stage, our priority is to reveal the unique value chain that the platform delivers.
To achieve that, our business analysts define a bunch of features that aim for the specific and direct needs of your customers. Then, experts transform these features in a UX prototype and specification.
For a software project, the discovery process gives a good overview of the functionality. Also, it enables us to adjust the estimation to a specific timeframe or budget in case there are particular measurements.
Therefore, after product discovery sessions with the Codica team, you will be fully armed on your way to building a successful product.
After the project discovery phase is complete, the next step is building a minimum viable product (MVP), which will help test your idea with real users.

“Coming from a gym environment, I had no idea how to build, create, and develop an app. Everything I needed to do was explained to me in layman’s terms. Nothing I asked for was too much.
