Turning your idea into a breakthrough
software product starts here.

Build products. Wow users. Grow your business.

Product studios are the next generation of software development. We operate a ‘team-as-a-service’ model, and partner with businesses in becoming technology first companies - accelerating the delivery and growth of modern software products. 

01 — Research and Discovery

There are three key parts to the research stage: understanding your organisational goals, researching the market and speaking to real users, and working collaboratively as an extension of your existing team to plan the technical architecture.

03 — Software Development

We use industry-leading development processes and expertise across multiple technologies to always deliver reliable products - balancing functionality with the right amount of aesthetics to create beautiful and enjoyable user experiences.

02 — Product Design

We create meaningful experiences in a digital world. Designing products that go beyond pure functionality - improving lives, evoking brand trust, and bringing joy to users. We prize value over metrics and collaborate openly with you.

04 — Growth and traction

Together with your team we grow your product by iterating progressively. Everything we make must be three things: scalable, viable, and desirable - the rest is flexible.

From startups to global brands – we help organisations create products people love to use.

We help companies adapt, recover and grow in the new economy. From startup founders to experienced enterprises - we work with your team to build and extend capabilities with an immediate and lasting impact on your business. Our team analyse, test and optimise your product to increase users, boost engagement and retention and ensure you meet your business goals.

All our projects are designed to be fully maintainable beyond launch by in-house teams, third-parties, or in continued partnership with Eli5.

Products we are working on.

What people say about us.

Eric Kickert, CEO Peecho

“Eli5 are design thinkers. Their approach forced us to distill our core, which they then translated into a super slick digital product.”

Roderick Adang, CEO Influencer DNA

“Eli5 is one of those few product companies that thinks and operates like a startup. They keep things simple and build high quality products fast.”

Robert Jan van Vliet, Partner at Sia Partners

“Eli5 has proven to be a reliable partner; dedicated and passionate about delivering quality solutions in time while keeping a flexible attitude.”

Bart Zirschky, Founder Annual Insight

“Eli5 is a true partner in both automating processes within our company and creating a slick user experience for our customers.”

Hidde Hovenkamp, Founder Pacmed

“Eli5 delivers great user interfaces within no-time. They prototyped our interface, validated it on real users, and turned it into a working product within a matter of weeks.”

What devices and operating systems do you build for?


We build user interfaces for all kinds of devices. Phones, tablets, desktops, laptops, watches, cars, or voice. And for web, iOS, Android, MacOS, or Windows.

What kind of development methods does Eli5 use?


That depends a bit on the type of project and organisation we work for. We can use any modern software development method. One rule, we keep things small and manageable and avoid projects becoming too large. It's important to move fast and ship often. Our DevOps system enables a continuous deployment, while our engineers and designers work in sprints of 2 or 3 weeks.

What technology stacks does Eli5 use?


That depends on the type of product we are building and your organisation. We have extensive experience with most modern frameworks for client- and server-side technology. One of the things we find important with picking the right tech for your product is that you will be able to find developers who can work with the codebase of your product. Ensuring you are not dependant on Eli5 forever.

Can Eli5 take over existing codebases?


In most cases, yes. However, there are rare cases of very poor quality code. When this happens, we unfortunately have to advise that it's probably for the best to rebuild (parts of) it. We always make sure that you understand why this is the case and how we can solve it for you.

Does Eli5 offer Service Level Agreements?


Yes. Depending on your needs and the type of product we are building, we create a tailored SLA.

What costs can I expect when building a software product?


This depends on the type of product and its complexity. Research and validation trajectories start from €10k, MVPs from €30k, and V1.0s from €50k. Post-launch development costs depend on your product and preferred timeline. Contact us on info@eli5.io for a free scoping session or ‘no-strings project quote’.
