Our Process

At Wave Digital, we keep our app development process simple. First, we work out what you want to build and estimate the cost to design and develop your app. We look to understand the why – what are your business goals, the problem, your users and their needs. We create user experience and visual designs, along with an app prototype for our Startup clients. We also identify ways to de-risk your app project before any development. We do this using technical proof-of-concepts, technical design, and early collaboration between your stakeholders and our designers and app developers. We then use the blueprint from this stage to build the first iteration of your app. Following its launch, we provide ongoing maintenance, support and app lifecycle management services.
