On their way to launch the final product, startups have to make lots of decisions from mockup creation to feature design and budget revision. But deciding whether they should develop a minimum viable product, proof of concept or a prototype might be one of the most challenging. If you can’t decide which one to adopt or how they differ, here we will help you know the difference between POC, Prototype & MVP.   What is POC? A POC (Proof of Concept) is the best approach to verify the uncertain idea or the idea’s feasibility to be implemented. In case of mobile app development, a mobile app POC is typically a small internal project that is used before the actual development and launching of the product. POC is not usually something public, it’s actually a part of the project planning and feasibility study phase so it’s not shown to the end-users. It may not be a usable product at all since it focuses on verifying the idea and whether it’s applicable or not. Building a POC needs a sufficient amount of time and effort for the team to do their research and verify the idea before development. Its key pros that it verifies the idea, gives opportunity to innovative ideas,  reduces cost and time for feature validation and reduces errors and bugs in early stages as well.   What is Prototype? While a POC shows a product concept can be done, a prototype shows how the idea will be done. There are many methods for prototyping, but in mobile app development, a prototype usually starts with sketches interface and transforms into an interactive model that resembles the final product. In a prototype product designers test the mobile app prototype, navigate through the app and try the whole flow and user experience so they can add their new ideas for modifications and enhancements and eventually come up with the final product to be implemented. Its key advantages is that it gives early feedback for the products, identifies defects, gives better experience of the flow as well as simplifying complex ideas through visual effects.   What is MVP? An MVP (Minimum Viable Product) is a minimal form with minimum features of your product that can be published to the end-user and market. This method of development allows you to your end-users reaction to your product before you waste more money and resources building something that maybe unneeded and useless. An MVP is a functional product that has the minimum enough features for it to be delivered to its initial group of users. MVP is a standalone and initial system on its own as It represents the fundamental version of your system that end-users can try give their feedback for more enhancements. Its advantages is preventing waste of money, time and resources, gives insights and feedback and defines what the end-user really need.     Enozom has worked with different startups in different domains of industries and businesses.

      The current situation of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak is affecting different types of businesses and industries on many levels. Since there is still no vaccines to prevent the spread of coronavirus disease, the only prevention method that people have is to try not be exposed to the virus. This is could be achieved by maintaining social distancing, taking personal hygiene measures, and avoiding contact with the infected person. And to assure social distancing, many businesses have allowed their employees to work from home so they decrease the chances of getting infected and keep their employee’s safe. However, not all businesses and industries can leave their premises and make their employees work from their homes simply because their jobs cannot be done from home so they had to just close their businesses for the meantime. But for other industries like the Tech & Software industries, the situation is not as big issue as it is to other business sectors such as supply chain businesses and manufacturers. Software companies, IT Services and Internet companies are not really exposed to the effect of the lockdown happening in most of the world. As most people are staying home, so their only way to communicate and keep their work done is through online tools and software solutions. There is significant growth in demand on video conferencing platforms, remote desktop, digital signature tools as well as E-learning platforms which all help people working from home as well as students.  Also the use of Telemedicine services and online shopping services has risen as well according to TrustRadius.   So it’s obvious that using more software tools has become a necessity in the current time which opens more opportunities to software developers to grow their tools and businesses to serve the current situation.

    We are now in an era where everything can be done by just one click on your phone. You can use different software solutions to do some work, buy stuff, rent a car or even watch a movie. Some businesses are actually the software itself. So now you are establishing your startup or company that is depends mainly on a mobile or a web app.  Now the question is what to do first? A mobile app? A Mobile Responsive Website? Or maybe both? It all depends on your business objectives. Here are some points to will help you decide what to start with.   The Business or Service Type The service you are offering is a big factor that you must think about. Some services can be offered by a website such as ecommerce platforms for everyday grocery shopping or maybe some tools for managing tasks and projects, which can be used on web or mobile versions. But there are other services that making a web version of the app doesn’t make any sense for them such as Ridesharing apps for example or Delivery apps where users will most probably out in the street and do not have access to computers. So you need to decide what the best option for your business and offered service. Application Use Rate    Is your service is something that is used regularly or it’s not really often used? If you think that your app will have a high use rate so having a mobile app is a good idea. Everyone now needs to access their most used tools quickly and easily so a mobile app for your business will enable users to access it anytime and anywhere. How Much Are You Going To Pay? Building a mobile app can cost you a lot. So budget is an important factor to take into consideration. Some startups begin with a website or an MVP of their service so they won’t pay too much in the beginning especially when the project is in the market testing and feedback phase. Then after you build your users base you can develop the bigger comprehensive version of the app. Offline Accessibility One of the advantages of mobile apps is that they can be accessible anytime and in sometimes may work offline. On the other hand, you cannot use web apps without internet connection and web browser. So if the service you are offering needs to be accessible with no internet connection so a mobile app is a good idea.   Building Customer Base For mobile responsive apps there’s one big advantage, which is that they are instantly available and can be easily found which in is a point of strength from the marketing and branding point of view. That will help you reach more customers and building your customer base easily. On the other hand in case of native mobile apps, you cannot reach your customers unless they download your app and the customer lifetime value is bigger after the customer downloads it. At that point you can have loyal customers.   Performance and Updates From performance point of view, mobile apps can win it and in most cases the mobile design and user experience is much better than that of a mobile responsive website. Mobile website is much more dynamic than an app in to update content. If you want to change the design or content of a mobile website you simply publish the edits and the changes are immediately available for users. But in case of a mobile app users will need to install new updates to be able to use them.   Here at Enozom we offer Web & Mobile Apps Development services. Contact us to get your quote now.
