DURING THE PROJECT
For this revamp, we leveraged our own PDP (Product Design Process). Recognizing the significance of a structured and user-centric approach, we started this project with a clear roadmap in place.
Throughout the process, regular feedback loops and iterations ensured that we stayed aligned and incorporated necessary fixes along the way.
First, we gather evidence that will support the decisions taken henceforth, ensuring that no decision is made based on vague assumptions.
This stage consists of 3 steps: a briefing with the project’s vision and goals and business requirements; user research to guarantee product usefulness and effectiveness from the user’s perspective; and a design benchmark to analyze the landscape of similar and complementary products, design patterns and technologies used in the industry.
The Research stage allows us to leverage the knowledge and skills of existing players and ensure features and design differentiation in the market, and ensure costumer fit.
We used Angular JS for the front-end development of Freecast.
With the benefit of React JS, our mobile app developers did not have to create separate codes for Android or iOS. By reusing 90% of the code, they created an app with increased efficiency and speed.
WORKING MODEL AND TEAM
While the initial website revamp brought significant improvements, it’s important to mention that digital landscapes are constantly evolving. The dynamic nature of user preferences, technological advancements, and market trends needs continuous monitoring and adaptation. By consistently analyzing data and gathering user feedback, we ensure that our website remains responsive, engaging, and aligned with the evolving needs of the modern users. This ongoing commitment allows us to deliver an exceptional online experience and stay ahead in a competitive digital world.
