Engage Mobile’s Strategic Software Blueprint is a proprietary process where we work with clients to develop the success metrics, key assumptions, information flows, design, software product roadmap and other key elements of the custom software or mobile project before a line of code is written. The goal is to make sure both Engage Mobile and the client clearly understand what is being built, why it is being built, and what success looks.

The Engage Mobile Strategic Software Blueprint

 

Building custom software or a mobile app without a strategy and software blueprint is the equivalent of starting to dig the foundation of a building without having a design and blueprint. Before starting to build a building, you have to know if the building is a single story house or a hundred story skyscraper, how many rooms are in the building, where the plumbing goes in the building and a thousand other details. You have to know the details of the building before you start construction.

The Engage Mobile Strategic Software Blueprint is a process that allows us to work with our clients to determine the key aspects of their software including:

  • Business and Solution Overview
  • Success metrics
  • Key assumptions
  • Information flows
  • Initial UI (User Interface) and UX (User Experience) design
  • Capabilities including inputs and outputs of the system
  • Software product roadmap

Advantages of Engage Mobile’s Strategic Software Blueprint include:

Cost savings and speed is achieved by working out the details of project up front.

Cost savings and speed is achieved by working out the details of project up front.

Saves Time and Money Spending time up front on a custom software project to work out the goals, details and workflows before the project begins significantly reduces expensive rework later in the process and allows the project to move rapidly once development begins. Skipping this step normally ends up being more expensive and takes longer because it is much faster and less expensive to work out the details on whiteboard vs. ripping out and rewriting code.

Allows Clients To Tap Into the Minds and Leverage the Experience of the Experts at Engage Mobile The software strategists, business analysts, User Interface (UI)/User Experience (UX) designers and project managers at Engage Mobile have designed and built hundreds of complex software projects in multiple industries including health and animal health. Our team is one of the best in the country and leveraging that team to work out the details of a software project is time and money well spent.

Significantly Increases the Odds of Success for the Project Clients that go through the Strategic Software Blueprint process are more successful than those that try to skip this critical step. Clients think they know exactly what they want and exactly how the software will work, but that is rarely the case. Clients have rarely thought through all of the issues related to validating key assumptions, alternate work flows, success metrics, security, deployment of hundreds of other issues that we think about every day at Engage Mobile. By going through the Strategic Software Blueprint process up front and validating key assumptions, the chances of a successful project are greatly increased.
