Bespoke software prototype to test a new concept

The Skillful Partnership provides training to internal teams and individual, and they wanted a new tool to help identify gaps and design a personalised training programme. As a new business with a new idea, Skillful wanted to test their concept before risking the cost of full development.

Having been recommended by another Cheltenham agency for our advanced experience, our software prototype gave users a usable, visual system which demonstrated all the key aspects of Skillful's concept.

We applied graphic and informational design to provide the easiest experience for users, with clear and consistent layouts and simple navigation. Our system is accessible from anywhere so Skillful could easily demonstrate their service to clients, and test its potential success.

Our website not only provided a low cost alternative to software development, but also an essential first stage in defining requirements, and reducing the cost and risk of full development.

As this is a secure system, we can't provide direct links to this project but can provide an online demo on request.

What we did

  • System structure design
  • Page layout design
  • Prototype build as website
  • Usability consultancy and review
  • Definition of requirements
We were looking for a developer who could produce a prototype for our software product to enable us to take to market and sell. We chose Blueline after meeting the team and seeing the wealth of experience they had in developing easy to use, functional websites. The team communicate very well and produce work of a high standard. The end result was a clean, smart and accessible site. We were very happy.
