Launch Your MVP
in Weeks

We blend design and engineering to create high fidelity native prototypes to quickly validate assumptions and test product ideas.

Intro

We are a Digital Research & Product Prototyping Studio based in Helsinki.

We help to launch your MVP to get answers in weeks instead of months, and tackle risks without creating a huge project and a team around it.

High-fidelity native prototypes help end customers to percieve the product value for real. It makes prototyping the best way to do Product Discovery and Demand Validation.
Get concept aproval and secure funding.
It helps the product team and the business partners to experience the prototype, to develop a shared understanding of how the end product is going to work.
Rapid prototyping is a necessary part of a good design process.

Philosophy

Why Creating New Products is So Hard?

fail fast
learn quick

There are thousands different factors that contribute to the success of a product, but the biggest reason for failure is building products based on wrong assumptions.

That includes failure to understand the market, what customers need and want, or fixing a nonexistent problem.

It is quite typical for an "MVP" to take more than half a year in development, without a single customer touching it.

The more time is spent building features based on not validated assumptions — the bigger is the risk of making the product that nobody needs and wants.

So how to avoid risks?

Convert assumption into facts.
Fail fast, learn quick.

How we work

Perspektives helps to validate product ideas by prototyping the MVP in weeks instead of months.

We are a team of engineers who design and designers who code.

We use real-time collaborative tools for design, and Node.js, React and cloud APIs for development.

We don't do polished design artifacts, branding, graphic design, product roadmaps, software architecture, full stack development and devops. We don't write specifications and don't implement requirements.

If you need any of this — there's plenty of fantastic full-service digital agencies out there, you should definitely give them a try.

We don't produce deliverables,
we produce outcomes.

Cases
Visit Finland Travel DataHub

A centralized platform for travel companies and destination marketing organizations.

Development of the prototype focused on the users, conducting stakeholder interviews to collect requirements for an MVP that was built using React and Firebase.

One month later, the first working draft was released to both travel companies and DMOs for live user testing, to collect feedback through an integrated feedback system.

By creating a functioning prototype to validate the concept and test ideas, Visit Finland did not need to take the initial risk of a long-term investment.
The end-result was a scalable product that validated initial assumptions at the fraction of the initial cost estimates, in a much shorter time.

MemoBot — Smart Office Device Concept

Generate memos for meetings, interviews or any conversation using a smart, privacy-first voice recorder.
No more scribbling down notes that mean little at the end of a meeting.

Kalliola Clinic Chatbot Prototype

The purpose of the project was to test out a hypothesis whether a shorter and less cumbersome onboarding process makes it easier to seek treatment for people suffering from substance abuse.

It was also an experiment to see if it helped in reducing the amount of dropouts in the beginning of the treatment and how technology could benefit potential patients by providing information in an easy and approachable way.

Pitstop One Platform Prototype

The goal of the project was to validate the feasibility of developing a platform to provide a cloud-based access control system for hotels using connected smart locks and a mobile application for end-users, as a solution that integrates various third-party systems.

Company Culture Research

The interviews were conducted with companies of all sizes. Initially, the research focused on larger companies in order to experience the end goal of a culture and how it can be maintained with progressive growth. The spotlight then switched to growing start-up to scale-ups, resulting in the finding of insights into scalability, best practices and how company culture aids success. All philosophical and practical research has been gathered through the interview process.

Discussing the experiences and current uses of company culture brought numerous insights, helping to define the importance of culture whilst explaining the practical value.
