To ensure full functioning of apps, Folio3 employs multiple technical phases and deliverables.
For instance, the Innovation Workshop initiates the development process by assessing business needs and deciding on the potential app concepts that can fulfill those needs. Best concepts selected are subjected to wireframing and then to prototyping. These essentially clickable prototypes serve as mockups of the proposed app idea, simulating user experience.
