CDC Victoria engaged in a reinteractive App Discovery Workshop.

You have a great idea you want to build into an application. So, what is the next step to get exactly what you want, within budget?

A discovery workshop was a fairly low-risk, value for money, intermediate step that took the project forward. It should be part of any feasibility analysis prior to actually committing to building an app.

reinteractive’s App Discovery Workshop

Key stakeholders from CDC Victoria engaged in a reinteractive App Discovery Workshop by reinteractive, fully scoping out the requirements for the new charter bus application they are building.

Building a new application can be a significant capital investment. When done right, it can dramatically boost productivity, automate key functions and increase customer loyalty and satisfaction. If it is poorly planned, it can chew up your budget while still not delivering the features required.

The Process

Before any coding begins, engaging in a detailed app discovery workshop is essential to formulate the exact requirements for an application. A thorough dive into your application includes:

  • Business Model Overview
  • Ideation Session
  • Discovery Session
  • Findings and Review

There are many variables when it comes to building an application and more than one way to do it. Key stakeholders contribute their input in the discovery session. The end result of the expert consultation process is a design of the software architecture, including a breakdown of the features of the application to be built in detail and a road-map for the next stages. This allows a realistic estimate to be priced up for budgeting purposes.

Johann Tay, Manager of ICT and Innovation at CDC Victoria saw a lot of value in developing a clear plan of the application functions their users would need.

Building an application can often be broken down into various stages. The first stage being a fully functional application that is up and running, providing core services to its users, in as short a time frame as possible.

Subsequent stages can then build on that core functionality, adding new features to the existing application and responding to feedback from various users.

We also look at better ways to structure your application to lower development costs and how to utilise any internal developers as part of the project.

Initially we allocated an amount of money to develop an application, but we didn’t think how the app should actually work or how much the ongoing running costs would be. We were just thinking, ‘this is CapEx, here is a sum of money’ and hopefully at the end of the process we will have an asset. But you have to think about the ongoing costs as part of that process before you start.

A discovery workshop was a fairly low-risk, value for money, intermediate step that took the project forward. It should be part of any feasibility analysis prior to actually committing to building an app.

Benefits of working with reinteractive?

One of the focuses of reinteractive’s operational philosophy is that great applications are built with close collaboration and communication with the client. Really understanding the business model, products and services and culture of the client allows our whole team, from business analysts to UX designers and developers, to come on board as part of the client’s team, working together to build them an exceptional application.

reinteractive has a level of professionalism that causes them to stand out in the market. It’s a whole package including the ability to match their approach to the client’s various needs and for a collaborative partnership. They bring a strong value proposition to the table and work to create added value.

Another standout factor of reinteractive compared to the others in the market, is the willingness to support a client long range and not to just create a cash-cow and sit on a maintenance contract.

We gained the confidence that somebody with reinteractive’s experience has reviewed our requirements and has documented it in a way that is easy to understand and enables us to present our requirements to the broader market.
