Validate first, then build

Solvers was founded because of a few startling statistics:

  • 70% of innovation projects fail after large sums of money are spent.
  • 80% of products go live with experiences and features that are “nice to have” but not necessary, ballooning the overall budgets and extending deadlines.
  • The cost to make a UX change while a product is in the development stage is 100x more than a change at the design stage and 200% more expensive when the product is live.
  • Every $1 spent on UX, brings in $2 -$100 in return.
  • Frustrated by these figures and knowing there was a way to ensure the success of digital experiences before spending big, Solvers set out to encourage investment in validating the user experience of websites and apps before building the actual solution.

Solvers app design concepts

We believe in a world where digital experiences improve everyday lives. They bring efficiency and enjoyment when used. They encourage physical, social interaction – not detach people from it.

— Kirk Donohoe / Solvers CEO

We sell certainty - validation as a service

At Solvers, we offer validation as a service - an approach we use to ensure users already want the solutions we design, before we begin to build. We validate the user experience of our solutions by involving our clients and their users in the design process - allowing the users to guide the way. Based on user research, we create digital prototypes and user test with real customers to gather feedback and iterate until we have a user-approved solution. By actively involving users in the experience design process, when we move into the development phase we are certain we are building experiences users already love. You can learn more about our user-centered approach here.
