We have an extensive background in conducting targeted research that includes literature reviews and prototype development. In some cases, our client’s vision for a product or feature exists at a high-level and may be unproven from a technology or process perspective.

By using an applicable research methodology, we can help uncover the level of detail required for a single or series of pragmatic prototypes that can lead to a practical design. Data collection and analysis are at the core of what we do on a daily basis and is a critical ingredient to understanding the problem domain.

This approach often results in true innovation that can generate intellectual property for our clients.
