design & development
test and validate your product and its key functionality
design & development
In the design phase, we utilise principles of engineering, and technical and user testing to design the product, the functionality and the form factor prototype, enabling you to showcase your project to investors, partners and stakeholders before we nail down the full set of functional requirements.
In this phase, we utilise cycles of design, principles of engineering, and technical and user testing to resolve the product in detail, including the functionality and the form factor prototype.
We use a number of stages to get to this point, putting together all the elements required to bring a prototype to life.
This enables you to showcase your project to investors, partners and stakeholders for feedback before we nail down the full set of functional requirements.
The stages we follow are tailor-made to your project and will vary depending on the type of product and its complexity, selected to correspond with your requirements and the technical unknowns.
At the end of this phase, your product’s form factor and key functionality will have been tested and validated by the users, you’ll have approval from stakeholders, your technical requirements will be specified and the functional requirements will have been met.
On completion of this phase, you'll be ready to move on to production
design & development services
Each design & development service is tailor-made to the exact requirements of your project, this might include a form factor prototype, a concept prototype or more. Our team will talk through the best services to suit you, creating a bespoke process if one of our tried and tested methods doesn't fit your project.
Our Concept Prototype provides you with a first holistic embodiment of your product. Fast-tracking the prototype validation process saves time, cost and reduces risk later on. Our team will provide you with technical, cost and delivery projections, whilst capturing IP, optimising budgets and prioritising speed to market.
“The Thrive team have been our Technology Partners through the Concept stage. They are designing and running field trials with UK based football fans to take our vision to mass production in a very tight timeframe. Their commitment and passion has been outstanding.”
