Thrive’s business model supports the future we believe in, where impact is rated as highly as profit. We work collaboratively across business partnerships and academia, delivering traditional consultancy services, grant and internally funded innovation streams.
The product development journey is a progressive process with successive phases which de-risk end product delivery.
CONCEPT AND INNOVATION
We work closely with you to establish product technology strategy, ensuring that the physical, digital and data elements of a proposition are harmoniously combined.
Through our inhouse team and broad networks, we help you scrutinise and deploy a pragmatic delivery plan rooted in feasibility and reduced technical risk.
DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT
Iterating functional and aesthetic prototypes, interface wireframing and user testing allows design and engineering to evolve rapidly towards production.
Through 3D prototyping, design iteration and eventual system consolidation, the product emerges and is tested across technology and user dimensions.
VALIDATION AND DELIVERY
After major technical developments have been completed, productisation, tooling and ramping to volume production delivers high quality, high yield physical technologies to ship on mass to end users.
Deploying scalable digital services becomes a key focus and the collection of an increasing level of high quality end user data enables advanced data processing and machine learning activities to accelerate.
