Web Application Prototyping

Web Application Prototyping

The first step in web application development is preparing the documentation and the prototype.  This important task determines the whole app development process direction. Preparing the documentation and the prototype can be treated as an individual service. We are more than happy to take your project further and build and deploy your application, however, if you'd prefer to have another company to do it for you - you can go for it. The choice is yours: preparing the documentation and the prototype can be the project or a part of it.

Web application documentation

When preparing documentation we focus on the below criteria:

- the application purpose and goals;
- the audience scope - who will be using the application?
- the level of access and the security level,
- the application functions and features,
- preferred technologies,
- user traffic.


Wireframe, Mockup, Prototype


What is the difference between the three?

A wireframe is the most basic visual representation of how your application should function. It serves as the skeleton of your application and allows us to establish the data hierarchy in the future system. It helps to plan the layout and decide on how you want the application to process information. Like a skeleton in your body supports its structure, the application wireframe is the base for successful web app development.

Muscles and skin are attached to the skeleton. In web application development, these tissues are equivalent to a mockup. The mockup gives shape to your wireframe, introducing font, color, text (Lorem ipsum), image, logo and other elements that will make your application easy and memorable. We all know that the devil is in the detail.

A prototype gives you the idea of movement and actions. It is a high-fidelity representation of your application. At this stage we are giving you the idea of the user experience you will get from the actual application. A clickable, interactive prototype helps to understand how the processes of your future application will work.


What do they have in common?

We will take care of all of them for you to ensure you have a clear idea of how your application is going to look like and function. During the process of preparing the prototype, we are happy for you to have as many people involved on your side as you wish. We share access to the project with you and your nominated employees. Any person accessing the project can leave and exchange comments to make the final prototype a satisfying representation of your application. Our IT advisor who manages the process is available through channels of your preference: face-to-face meetings, phone or Skype conversations, desktop sharing, email.

Prototype in the software development life cycle

A properly designed prototype is key for no-fuss management of a web app development project. We want you to play with your ideas at this early stage to ensure the prototype represents your perfect solution. We want to gather as much feedback as possible to get to know your needs and expectations. This is the stage when we shape the model of your application and tailor it to your requirements.

Benefits of prototyping

If you are not sure of what you want from your application or what it can actually give you, we can help you identify your goals and use the potential of a web application to achieve them.

The time spent on designing the prototype saves time and money in a long run. It is much easier to introduce changes to the prototype than to the actual application.

The prototype includes all the screens of your future software and each of the screens shows all the elements that you want in your application. In this way, you know exactly what to expect.

You can take as long as you need to make changes to the prototype. We want you to have a solution that gives you 100% satisfaction. Changes and feedback are not only welcome but really valued.

Apart from the prototype itself, we prepare a BPMN (Business Process Modeling Notation) describing potential modifications of the processes, which helps to decide which parts can be improved.

In terms of RWD approach, we can create a prototype for different screen sizes so you know how your application will look like and work on your computer, tablet or mobile.

It is rare for one person to think of every aspect of an application that can be an asset for your company. As we put no limit on the number of people involved in the process of designing the prototype, you can get the widest scope of ideas and concepts.

Our IT advisors have the knowledge and experience to help you get a clear view of how the application is going to function and how it can streamline the processes in your company. They notice potential issues and know how to solve them. By staying up-to-date with any innovations on the market, they can offer the best service.

You are the owner of the prototype and you can send it to several software houses to choose the best offer.
