We’ll create wireframes, user flows, and mockups that will serve as the blueprint for your final product.

Frequently asked questions

What kind of projects are suitable for building software from scratch?

Building software products from scratch is suitable for projects that require a completely new and unique solution. This approach is ideal for projects that have complex requirements and need custom functionality that cannot be met through existing software. It is also beneficial for projects that have no existing solution or the existing solution is outdated and needs to be completely replaced. Building software from scratch allows organisations to get a solution that fits their specific needs and goals, making it a great option for projects that are critical to the success of the organisation.

What is the process for building software from scratch with Eli5?

The process of build software products from scratch is in explained high level on this page. A more detailed explanation is as follows:

1. Understanding the requirements and goals of the project.
2. Conducting a thorough analysis of the target audience, market, and competition.
3. Developing a clear project plan and timeline.
4. Designing a user-friendly interface that meets the project requirements.
5. Building and testing the software to ensure it meets the project requirements.
6. Deploying the software and providing ongoing support and maintenance.

Throughout the entire process, we work closely with our clients to ensure their vision is brought to life and the company's goals are met.

How does Eli5 determine the scope and requirements for a project?

We determine the scope and requirements for software products through a collaborative process with our clients. This process involves a series of meetings, workshops and discussions to understand the client's business goals, pain points, and requirements. Our team of experts use this information to create a detailed project plan that outlines the scope of work, deliverables, and timeline.

What is the average timeline to build a software product from scratch?

The average timeline for building a software product from scratch  depends heavily on the size and complexity of the project, as well as the resources and constraints of both Eli5 and the client. A software product from scratch typically takes 2 to 6 months, although this can vary widely depending on the specific requirements and scope of the project. We do however always distill the scope of your product to its core and build out your product incrementally. Before starting project, we work with our clients to establish a clear understanding of the project goals, scope, and timeline, and adjusts the development plan accordingly to ensure a successful and timely outcome.
