We broke the build into a series of sprints, allowing us to be flexible in ticking of the ‘must’ and ‘should’ have features. Our approach for testing was necessarily more rigid, ensuring that we were able to use a combination of the RFID bands and the app to cover all scenarios.
An MVP for an NFC-enabled event system
The founder of this confidential new start up approached us to help them define and create a prototype that would establish the business case for their events management startup. Their product - at heart an application for an NFC reader/writer - needed to combine NFC technology with robust data management and a thoroughly defined user experience; with all of the potential problems that can arise in a live event situation. Our initial testing was to take place at a Shoreditch-based festival of music, art and technology.
Our first tasks for the client were to use our extensive event and NFC experience to turn their ambitious plans into an MVP. Releasing an MVP into a live environment is always risky, so we had to be careful to balance the requirements of delivering a great experience and testing the product simultaneously.
We were proud to be part of such a great event, and look forward to seeing where our new startup partner takes their idea next - they certainly generated a huge amount of data to test their product assumptions.
