Application Scoping and Prototype

Keep Up with Evolving Customer Expectations

The “new normal” for businesses means fast-tracking digital transformation initiatives to meet user expectations. Such initiatives must encompass multiple digital channels, allowing users to interact via their preferred mode of engagement (e.g., web, mobile, social media, IoT). But even businesses that have an established multi-channel presence still struggle to keep up with evolving consumer expectations because doing so means continuously maintaining and updating the functionality and value their solutions deliver.Scoping and prototyping are critical elements of any application strategy. Anexinet helps your business fast-track application development to support the new normal by scoping and prototyping new applications to meet user expectations and achieve your business objectives. Our proven approach addresses business need with facilitated collaborative workshops and a comprehensive implementation approach to ensure success and identify potential issues early-on—letting you recalibrate before becoming heavily invested or setting unrealistic stakeholder-expectations. Take your app initiatives from concept to prototype in just weeks via a focused process that avoids detours, saves time and money, and helps you deliver the value your user expect.

The Application Scoping & Prototype Kickstart focuses on the crucial elements of user experience design and app architecture to help you:

Enable refinements prior to launch by gathering user-feedback early-on
Save time and ensure user satisfaction through iterative, pre-launch adjustments
Identify gaps by user-testing the prototype to reveal flow disruptions
Manage expectations with stakeholders by identifying the possible/impossible
Achieve prototype “buy-in” by involving key stakeholders early-on to generate excitement
Minimize project costs by testing a prototype vs. committing resources to a large-scale project of uncertain success

Our Approach

Our Application Scoping & Prototype Kickstart has been carefully crafted and includes a well-defined set of exercises. We tailor our approach as necessary to meet your unique needs and ensure success.

How it Works

lighted Brain

Direction Setting & Requirements Definition

As the foundation for ideation, our digital strategists engage key stakeholders to identify the key business drivers for the application scoping and prototype. Facilitated workshop sessions then validate the business objectives and strategic direction before defining the target users, desired interactions, top use cases, and engagement methods.

Key Activities

  • Define Qualitative & Quantitative Business Drivers
  • Identify Target Users (Personas, Usage Patterns)
  • Identify Engagement Methods (Devices, Platforms)

Visualization, Readiness & Roadmap

Collaborative ideation sessions explore the competitive landscape, user-feedback, and industry influences. Our visual and interactive processes and tools facilitate functionality-analysis and concept-generation. We group, conceptualize, and prioritize all ideas and use cases to establish the prototype’s functional requirements and ensure all user scenarios are accounted for. Finally, we meet with IT stakeholders to determine the technical considerations of developinig and supporting the application before bringing it all to life in an intuitive, clickable, on-device prototype that facilitates valuable, real-world feedback from users on real devices.

Key Activities

  • Facilitate ideation sessions
  • Define and prioritize use cases and scenarios
  • Create UI/UX designs
  • Determine all technical considerations
  • Develop a clickable prototype

Recommendations and Next Steps

Based on our prototype and session-findings, we define and develop recommendations and an actionable plan that will guide the delivery of the application. This includes the necessary resources and an estimated timeline for finalizing the application design and development.

Key Activities

  • Present the recommendations
  • Review the Actionable Plan
  • Conduct the Executive Readout
  • Demonstrate the clickable prototype(s)
  • Determine next steps

What you’ll get

Upon completion of this Kickstart you’ll take away the following deliverables:


Application Scope & Prototype Requirements Document

This document articulates your organization’s vision for the application, delineates your qualitative and quantitative business drivers, and defines your target users.


Clickable Prototypes

As many as three clickable prototypes are developed and loaded on target devices to visualize and validate real-world user scenarios and functionality.


Application Feature Matrix & Roadmap

We catalog and rank all plausible uses in a feature matrix that establishes viability and prioritizes functionality based on alignment with business drivers, organizational readiness, and ease of implementation—generating your roadmap for success.


Technical Approach & Considerations

We define the future-state of your application’s technical architecture and integration with existing enterprise systems to ensure alignment with security, infrastructure, deployment and continuous delivery and support considerations.


UI/UX Design Artifacts

The user experience design and assets required to create the user interface designs and interactions: Interaction Flow Diagram, Wireframes, UI Screen Designs.


Delivery Plan & Next Steps

Our recommendations and phased delivery plan identifies the resources and estimated timeline to complete the detailed design and development of the application (functionality-scoped and prioritized for the initial release).
