USER-BASED RESEARCH

After understanding the requirements of the application from our clients we immediately look to their end users to understand and analyze their habits. This allows us to construct a product that can co-exist with their current habits to ensure wide-spread adoption by creating a minimal product learning curve for the user.

REQUIREMENT

ELICITATION

Once we have gained a thorough understanding of the users, we now look to ideate to construct an app product that not only fulfills the requirements as set by our clients but also addresses the previously identified user pain points.

ITERATIVE DESIGN

During this phase, we develop the final User Interface and refine the User Experience that we have designed in preparation for app development.

RESEARCH PRODUCT – USER FIT

We perform early tests to check if we have successfully created a product that services both the needs of the clients while addressing the pain points of the customers.

DEVELOPMENT ANALYSIS

During this phase, we update our planning based on the designs and the finding received from the users. We also split the product to be developed from full-stack app development projects into specific tasks to give our clients precise estimates of the total development time and hence total product development costs.

SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT

This is the longest phase of the product development cycle and is where huge teams of developers are finally building the application.

TESTING

This is an ongoing phase and occurs in parallel with the full-stack app development. The main aim of this is to ensure that the product built meets the high-quality standard that is expected of products developed by Alchemy and to ensure that the product being developed is as per the set requirements described in the documents.

SETUP DATA COLLECTION

After receiving early feedback from the alpha tests we have a good idea about the specific hypothesis is that need to be tested. We may also choose to setup A/B tests in different parts of the app to ensure that we release on the best version.
