Reasons to build an MVP

Building an Minimum Viable Product (MVP) brings businesses a host of advantages that maximize the opportunity to release a successful digital product.

Test your key business concepts early on

An MVP enables you to test your business idea. By offering this simplified version instead of a full-blown product, you can test your hypotheses, gather user feedback, get your product to market fast, and keep the costs down.

Convince investors with a strong business case

the more features you add to the app, the higher its cost. But you don’t need nice-to-have-features to demonstrate a product’s market validity. A functional and well-tested MVP helps to build a business case that has the power to convince investors.

Get a head start with evolving your product

an MVP allows you to build up a user base early on and learn what works (and what doesn’t). This critical information will help you make strategic decisions about the next iterations of your product - for example, which features to add and which ones to toss aside. That way, you’ll allocate your budget in functionalities that help to increase sales and ROI.

Reduce development costs

delivering a mature mobile application takes months, if not years of hard work. And you can be sure that the price tag matches that effort. An MVP is designed to provide immediate value - and that’s why it delivers the highest value to your business within the shortest amount of time possible, all the while minimizing costs.

How does an ‘MVP in 40 days’ work?

01

Product development workshops

We start with dedicated workshops where we help our clients validate their idea and find the most critical value it brings to users - the core of the app.

02

Continue with development?

After the workshops, you may decide not to continue with development because they need more time to work on their business idea. Our team is happy to support you in that process and start working on your product once the core idea is well-defined.

03

UX and UI design

Based on the insights from the workshops, the UI and UX designers prepare a clickable mockup of the app. We then test it together with clients and apply changes.

04

Development

Our mobile development team gets down to work and starts the development process. It’s always supported by testers who keep the app free of any errors or bugs. During the development process, we keep in close touch with clients to show them how their MVP is growing.

The 10Clouds team uses the following tech stack to deliver a functional MVP in 40 days:

  • Flutter as the cross-platform development technology that allows bringing an MVP to iOS and Android. That way, your app is developed by one team, saving you lots of time and money, and ensuring simultaneous releases.
  • Firebase from Google for statistics and storage. The technology is easy to scale, cheap to maintain, and comes with all the knowledge and experience of a tech giant.
  • Bitrise for Continuous Integration and testing. That’s how we automate the process of building your app, sending its iterations to testers and app stores. We respect your time and money.

MVP or prototype app?

A MVP is a prototype at its heart but further along in the product development process. It is essentially the first, most basic version of your app, which can be shown to users. Building an MVP is all about gathering user feedback early and then producing further iterations that reflect user needs and have real business value.

You can find out more about prototype apps here, and view our handy comparison table featuring the differences between prototype apps, MVPs, InVision and Marvel mockups.
