Discovery Phase Consulting by Perfsol
While starting, most businesses do not precisely understand their audience's needs or wants. An initial business idea might be difficult to turn into a business model while also considering potential pitfalls and ensuring successful monetization. This is why it is vital to conduct a proper discovery phase consulting. Thankfully, our discovery phase analysts can help you with this crucial process.
The basic goal of a discovery phase consulting is to minimize all uncertainties that come with starting the project. In other words, discovery phase consulting defines objectives and creates the groundwork on top of which the project will be done. After going through the discovery phase consulting process, your team will be able to work towards a fully fleshed-out goal instead of blindly implementing features and designs.
Our business analysts will be happy to provide you with their expertise during discovery phase consulting. They will thoroughly examine all aspects of the potential project and give their assessment.
One of the main features of discovery phase consulting is product vision development. Even before the project starts, you know exactly where to take your product.
As part of the discovery phase consulting we also offer the development of a Proof of Concept (PoC). This is suitable for projects that have a revolutionary idea and want to have practical proof that it can be implemented with a minimum budget.
Thorough market and competitor analysis is another important part of discovery phase consulting. It will enable us to study the current state of affairs and best practices for further use in your product.
During the discovery phase consulting, a prototype may be developed. Get a full-fledged application with basic functionality at limited costs.

The discovery phase is designed to lay a solid foundation for your project and ensure each further development step brings you closer to software aligned with your business goals. Here’s what you can expect as you jump into the discovery stage with Perfsol experts.
This is the first and perhaps the most crucial step. Our team works closely with you to thoroughly understand your vision and objectives. We conduct market research, analyze competitors, and use data-driven approaches to validate the feasibility of your idea. This process not only affirms your concept's potential but also identifies possible challenges and opportunities early on.
Once your idea is validated, we move on to bringing it to life through prototyping and design concepts. This stage involves creating preliminary designs and mockups of your software. Prototyping is an excellent way to visualize your application's appearance and function, providing a tangible form to abstract ideas. It allows for early feedback and iterative improvements.
A comprehensive Software Requirements Specification (SRS) is a document, which serves as a blueprint for your project. It outlines detailed software requirements, including functional, non-functional, and system requirements. SRS is a guide that developers and project managers use throughout the development process, ensuring that the end product meets your specified needs and quality standards.
Finally, we develop a detailed product roadmap that outlines the timeline and milestones for your project. This roadmap provides a strategic plan, detailing the phases of development, key deliverables, and timelines. It serves as a guiding light for the project team and stakeholders, ensuring everyone knows the project's progress and objectives.
A Discovery phase focuses its attention on carefully crafting your concept and limiting uncertainties. Here is the roadmap for discovery phase consulting, that Perfsol follows:
Our discovery phase consulting services aim to give you the most exact estimations and minimize risks that come with starting a project. Check out our case studies and see what we mean:
We conduct discovery phase consulting first and foremost to minimize risks related to planning, budgeting issues, and roadmap organization. With our discovery phase consulting services, you will hit the least amount of roadblocks, mismanage less, and only pay what you need.
By modeling the product before beginning work, you can ensure smooth management and set clearly defined objectives and manage your expectations. This is the key factor to further building your project and making further plans. Good outcomes are heavily dependent on clearly defined milestones.
A project that is well-managed and clearly envisioned from the start is bound to cost times less, than one with an unsettled and unstable plan structure. Our firm helps you manage your plans and oversee spending so your budget stays predictable and bound.
Our consultans dive into a project with an understanding that the industry market has a large influence over its outcomes. This is why before the development process even begins, we look for a target audience, analyze the market tendencies and even try to see what our competitors are up to.
Our discovery phase consulting team set up a document with clearly outlined requirements for the project. These include the technology stack, general architecture outline, system specification, and design language. This makes it easy for you to see what your team is missing and adapt to your environment.
Sometimes it is worth asking — is my product idea even viable? Will it find its place under the sun? We are here to help you answer this question and adapt your idea to real market conditions. This way, you can rest easy, knowing your idea will not go under the user’s radar once it is released.
