Technology & Design Consulting
These days, the development of a new digital product calls for numerous requirements and expectations to be addressed. Software should be functional, modern, fast, bug-free, adapted to users’ needs and visually appealing. To fulfill all these criteria, a consulting partner with extensive know-how in various disciplines is often needed. That’s where we come into play.
Our consulting services
Whatever you may need help with, we can support you in various areas with concrete concepts, analyses and recommendations with a degree of involvement that suits you.
Product strategy & prototyping
Together we analyse your product vision in workshops and all the requirements that come with it and thereby formulate a concrete plan for its realization. This involves requirement analyses, requirement engineering, working out a user story map and finally defining the first sensible MVP which allows you to gather feedback from real users as fast as possible. Moreover, we can visualise your product idea with moodboards, wireframes and initial screen design in the form of an InVision prototype.
UX/UI review & user testing
Analysis of legacy software and modernization
We analyse your existing software and deliver a concept for switching to a more modern tech stack that will facilitate more efficient maintenance, easier future development, increased reliability and state-of-the-art security. Crucial to that process is also an update of the UX and retirement of legacy features which your product might no longer need. The goal is the creation of a requirement catalogue, a review of potential alternative architectures and technologies and a strategy for the migration of the existing system. In a later step, we can optionally provide a detailed estimation of effort and costs required for the redevelopment and a timeline for its realization.
Test management and test automation
Punctual and flawless releases that are on budget require a robust and rigorous QA system. However, it is not uncommon that such a system is either not present or could be markedly improved. With our expertise in automation testing, manual testing and test management, we can assist you in setting up or tweaking the QA infrastructure that is right for you and that boosts the automation and quality of all kinds of tests (performance, UI, regression, etc.)
Technology consulting & coaching
Are you unsure about the choice of the right tech stack or do you need help for a particular technology? Our in-house experts will gladly advise you on your decision-making process and show you which configuration is suitable for your product. We can furthermore provide your developers with help in certain technologies and coach them during the development process with recommendations and code reviews.

Our approach to consulting
When an external company provides consulting, it serves as a great advantage if that company is well versed in all aspects of digital product development. That is what distinguishes our approach: the years of practical experience in software development as well as UX design with which we help our clients achieve breakthroughs in their market. Here’s what comes in addition to our consulting services.
The right know-how
Possessing a variety of skills is of great importance — by combining software development, DevOps, QA and design, your consulting partner can save you a lot of time and trouble. It’s important to point out, however, that the quality of the consulting itself is higher when all these disciplines are gathered at one source. Coordinating design and development so that they harmonize becomes far easier thanks to the continuous exchange of information between the two teams. This exchange also facilitates the creation of sensible and sustainable concepts.
The right mindset
Consulting should be more than just an auxiliary element. It is essential for consulters to see themselves not merely as somebody with know-how, but also to strive to put themselves in the position of your company and market and contribute to the conception of the product with critical questions. That is what we have taken to heart, which is why work with you as co-creator on whichever aspects of your business can benefit from our expertise. Our goal is to lead you to the product that your users really need.
