What is a Digital Product Studio? How's It Different from a Typical Software Company?


You many have read about digital product studios and wondered what are these and what makes them different from a typical software development company?

What exactly is a digital product studio? What makes them unique? How do they work with clients? And most importantly, why should you care?

Let’s dive into more detail to study the difference between these two.

Digital Products vs Software

Digital products, as we'll use the term here, are software and more. They include anything that's delivered through a digital interface. That means it could be a website or mobile app; it might also be an interactive book or music album.

A digital product studio is one where designers and developers build digital products-but they don't stop there!

Successful studios think beyond the technicalities that goes into making their products work well with users (and other developers). They focus on the impact each product will have on its users' lives--and how to make this impact as positive as possible.

The best way for two people to work together isn't always clear at first: what matters most is finding someone who understands your goals and values, and who can communicate your ideas and help you solve problems along the way.

Role of the Designer

A digital product studio is different from a typical software company because it has specific roles for designers, developers, and stakeholders. The designer is the key to building successful products for the users.

A designer’s role in a digital product studio is to understand:

  • Who the users are
  • What they need from your product
  • How you can help them with their problems

A good design process starts with understanding what users need out of their experience with your product—so you need someone who understands not how they work but also why they work that way (or why they don't).

This means having someone on board who has both design skills and customer empathy.
The developer is the person who will take the designer's wireframe and build it into an actual product. This means understanding how to design for many platforms (web, mobile), and knowing how to code in different languages like HTML5, CSS3, Javascript and PHP, etc.

Agility is everything

Every software company is different. But all they use is some kind of method for planning work and making sure that it gets done on time.

We use Agile, which is an iterative development process focused on collaboration, self-organization, and working software over documentation or plan-driven approaches to managing projects. Agile can take many forms; Scrum is the most popular form of agile project management used today (more on that later).

The goal of agile project management is to make sure that the work gets done on time. It also helps ensure that quality standards are met and that any changes due to unexpected circumstances can be accommodated without delaying delivery dates. Agile project management is not about software development. In fact, it’s more common in other industries like construction or manufacturing.

Clients are Collaborators

As a client, you're an integral part of the project. You'll be into it from the beginning, and throughout all stages of development. That doesn't mean we're going to let you make all the decisions on our behalf. We will help shape your vision into a reality, and then implement it in code that works.

But there's another important aspect here: our clients are not only collaborators during development; they are also involved after their product launches as well. We want to make sure they're happy with what we've created for them—and we don't want them to use it once or twice before moving on. Our goal is for them to keep coming back for more!

We know that this requires ongoing support and maintenance; so once we have launched their web application or mobile app (or whatever else), we continue working with them long-term by providing ongoing updates at no extra charge."

We’re Flexible

We are flexible. We can work with you to find the best solution for your needs. We can help you define your problem, define your solution and then implement it so that it works for you.
We will also help with testing and maintenance of the product as well as any updates or upgrades necessary in order to keep it running.

We are actually committed to providing you with the best possible product, and we will go out of our way to ensure that you are satisfied. We take pride in our work and want you to be happy with it.
