Working to modernize a robust, legacy product for a nationally recognized non-profit leader and social enterprise (Imagine Canada's Grant Connect) required careful consideration and an optimized approach. A dedicated and specialized customer base, a restrictive budget, and decades of highly complex data, all presented unique challenges to solve.

Exploring both process and approach, from initial research, through beta launch, this presentation will outline Therefore Interactive's journey to deliver a market-ready product in 3 months by leveraging best in class technology, parallel development efforts, and a focused minimum viable product strategy.

Topics we'll cover

  • Process: UX research, strategy, and design, Agile
  • Approach: minimum viable product, close collaboration, feedback & iteration
  • Development: parallel efforts, cross-disciplinary teams
  • Technology: Contenta, React, Material UI
