This phase includes several aspects:
This phase allows you to take a consistent approach to the development process to build a startup on time and within budget.
Project documentation is a roadmap for your future digital product. It allows you to structure your team and plan all the stages of development. Thus, you get a document that regulates all the necessary resources at different stages (design, development, testing, and project management). This roadmap allows you to control the process and keep it in a consistent state.
A prototype file is a monochrome, low-fidelity version of an application design based on requirements documents. This file provides the program's basic functionality and does not display visual components. Prototypes are needed to verify that the design can be built according to requirements, and also allows you to focus on enhancing the user experience.
At this stage, it is crucial to have bilateral talks between the customer and the development team about the project. Our team makes sure to discuss everything: from the concept of the future product to potential problems during development and after launch. Besides, during this phase, we provide an estimate of the project cost.

The cost of the discovery phase of a project on average ranges from $5000 up to $15,000.
There is a pretty simple formula behind these numbers. Pricing of a discovery phase is 10% out of a development budget. After the initial discussion of the idea, the developers already have a rough idea of what is to be created and how it should work.
Therefore, the price of the discovery stage can tell you in advance about the price of the final product – an MVP or a large-scale application.
Here are the most important professionals who can easily handle the entire discovery phase of your software project.
Backend, frontend, or mobile developers
Depending on the company, the workflow of the product discovery phase may differ. However, we would like to outline the most common stages of the product discovery phase.
This phase involves an interview with the founder (business or product owner) to understand the overall concept of the product, as well as what makes it different from the competition. After obtaining all the necessary information, the discovery phase begins.
At this stage, specialists conduct an in-depth analysis of all the information received, as well as determine the main goals, requirements, and business objectives.
The initial technical requirements (workflow and technologies) are developed based on the business requirements. After a comprehensive analysis of the potential and prospects of the future product, developers make the final choice.
During this stage, a general analysis of the client is carried out. It will be necessary to understand how much the future product will be needed by customers. To do this, a whole group of aspects should be checked:
Here are some of the aspects that must be checked:\
This is the final phase of the analysis, which involves a comprehensive assessment of competitors. The following factors are analyzed:
Software requirements specifications (SRS) are descriptions of the future software in the form of user stories. This documentation includes the application workflow, user paths, key functions, roles, and necessary technologies for the back-end, front-end, and marketing.
During the project discovery phase, the necessary documentation is developed and used by the team to visualize the functionality of the future platform and create the user experience.
Wireframes help the team understand and interpret stakeholder expectations. They visualize the workflow and make it easier for devs to understand it and modify it if necessary. UX wireframes also improve platform workflow and user experience.
The final stage of the discovery phase is the creation of project blueprints, which are a collection of the deliverables of the previous phases. They help to make sure that all processes are completed within the stipulated time frame. Usually, blueprints contain the technical requirements for the project and other aspects:
