The sad reality is that so few startups get past the MVP stage that they never need to answer the question: now what? But if you’re one of the lucky ones and want to venture into post-MVP development – we’ve got you covered. Over the past 14 years we’ve worked not just on software, but on many great business ideas that grew past the MVP stage and scaled up successfully with our help. So, now that you’ve successfully launched your MVP and know that users love it, here’s how you can grow with us!
If your product is out, then people have opinions, so let’s first work on polishing what we already have. We’ll gather feedback and usage data to make improvements to existing features, such as fixing bugs or optimizing user interfaces.
We’re sure you have a million ideas for new product features – many of which you had to drop as non-essential during the MVP stage. Let’s revisit them and come up with a new roadmap for future developments, on which we’ll work iteratively.
Success means that, inevitably, there will come a time where your customer base grows, sometimes by a lot. This will require scaling your infrastructure to handle more users – for example by improving server capacity or adopting cloud services.
And how do you know it’s time to change things or scale up? You need to monitor the app! Which is why we implement tools for tracking user behavior and monitoring performance, and help you understand these metrics and make data-driven decisions about future development.
TThere are two elements to keeping users happy: support and maintenance. You need to offer them a channel to ask questions and raise issues (and, of course, address them!), and you need to regularly update your product to ensure compatibility with new technologies.
Remember that work on security never ends – it’s an area with constant developments and, yes, constant threats! That’s why constant security updates and compliance with regulations are an inevitable part of post MVP development of any product.
If you want to take your product to the next level, drop us a note! We’d be happy to discuss how we can grow and optimize your product past the MVP phase!Let’s talk!
