When it comes to creating your product, think partner not agency

At Chop Dawg, we truly believe our clients’ success is our success. So, how do we take your idea and turn it into a scalable, marketable, and profitable digital product? It’s a journey that starts with the very first phone call. Every step of the way we are there beside you, making sure that you are a part of the process of building something incredible together.

Over the past ten years, we have honed our methodology and app development process to what we know not only guarantees you a successful app launch—but puts you on the path for long-term success as well.

Phase One: Scoping & Documentation

We carefully scope out your project from start-to-finish by defining all of the design and development requirements of your digital product. This part of our technical partnership is very collaborative, and it happens before any contract is signed.

We want to ensure that you feel 100% confident before moving forward, and that you will receive everything that you have asked for—as well as the things you didn’t know to ask for.

We will work with you to optimize your budget and timeline based on the features and functionality that are the most important to bring your application to life. Everything that we lay out together here sets the stage so that we can hit the ground running together when we enter into Phase Two.

Phase Two: Preliminary Design Work (Wireframing)

We start by creating black-and-white visual guides that form the foundation of your app. These wireframes serve as blueprint concepts of every single screen, function, pop-up, and animation that needs to be accounted for and built into your app.

Phase Three: High Fidelity Design Work

Once the wireframing process is complete, we take your design blueprint and bring it to life with beautiful, pixel-perfect high fidelity mockups. These mockups will show you exactly what your digital product will look like to your future users.

Phase Four: Product Flow & Design Documentation

With every screen of your application approved via our weekly meetings and designed to be pixel-perfect, Phase Four is where we define the logic between all of those screens. This phase determines where each screen will appear once programmed, where data is sent, received, and how everything will function once the application is fully programmed.

Think of this like creating the blueprints to a building—we need to define everything that’s required (electrical, plumbing, layout, doors, exact dimensions and materials needed, etc) – these are the final schematics that our designers provide your development team here at Chop Dawg, so they can complete the programming side of your app from A-to-Z.

We will then provide you with what is called a non-functioning product, or NFP. This way, you can test out the flow of your app for yourself before we move into development.

Phase Five: Programming Your Application

We are now bringing your application’s design to life – think of this as building the brain of your application. We assign in-house US-based developers that are best-suited for the technologies selected during the Scoping & Documentation phase of your app.

Our developers are agile—and we always keep you in the loop about what is going on with scheduled bi-weekly meetings during development so we can regularly review and assess what we’re building together. All of the code that runs your app, including backend partners and sources, will be fully implemented and ready for testing.

Phase Six: Quality Assurance (QA) Testing

Throughout programming, we implement incremental quality assurance testing so that there aren’t any big surprises by the time we get to this phase. Phase Six is all about perfecting your digital product for launch. We will run it through many stress tests to confirm that everything is working as intended and all documented bugs are resolved for you.

What we want to discover for ourselves here are all of the possible scenarios that your future users could go through. We’ll make sure your product works on all supported devices and is primed for launch and can handle real-world usage from the get-go.

 

Phase Seven: Getting You Ready For Launch

We will do everything we can to help you position your product. We will also provide you with support after launch to cover any small issues or errors, with our standard 90-day bug warranty and 45-day maintenance window.

We care deeply about your success

It’s hard to find an outside agency that shares in your unique vision and drive—and has great chemistry with the talent to back it all up. That’s where we come in. Let us know when you’re ready to bring your vision to life. We’re ready to be a part of your success team.
