Design


Design - is creation of detailed technical documentation developed software in compliance with the business requirements of the client, which is preceded by a stage of development and defines all internal properties and architecture of the project.

Why you need a design

In situations when the project is in the initial stage, or has no documentation, we recommend starting from the design stage for the following reasons:

This allows to visualize the project, draw up an estimate and divide the development into phases.

Design reduces the cost of development, due to the MVP development and functional errors reducement on early stages.
