Shaping the Plan

At the early discovery stage, we step in to help you shape your idea and provide you with a rough plan of what needs to be done.

Step image


Defining scope and ballpark estimation

Knowledge transfer

You provide us with the relevant documents, materials, and data that will enable us to better understand your business needs and analyze your software idea.

Analysis and feedback

We conduct a careful analysis of the documents to advise you on the range and structure of the proof of concept, MVP, and determine the next project steps, size of the team, project scope and other important aspects.

Initial discovery

We learn all about your business and product idea during our introductory call. We get to know each other and explore the opportunity of working together.

After that, you decide upon our collaboration and the potential need for us to sign an NDA.

Your role

Sharing your experience and knowledge, providing additional information if needed.

Our role

Analyzing materials and your market, suggesting the scope of the MVP, delivering first estimation.


Kick-off workshops

Product discovery process

We conduct a two-day Discovery Workshop to help you validate your business ideas, get specific development process guidelines, and meet our team. We have experience in performing successful workshops 100% remotely.

Your role

Meeting the team for two days, explaining your expectations, and keeping an open mind.

Our role

Running workshops, suggesting processes, solutions, and technology choices based on our past experience and your needs.


Workshop deliverables

Here's what you get

After workshops, our team needs a few days to deliver the first artifacts that will be used after we jump into development. Those deliverables are created based on your product’s needs and all the information we collect in the course of the workshops.

Your role

Providing feedback to delivered materials.

Our role

Preparing wireframes/sitemap, user stories, drafting team proposals, detailed estimates, and a roadmap.


Before the project starts

Final agreements

Trust is key in business partnerships, however, we also make it a priority to write down all your requirements and detailed project terms. We agree on the final project terms and send you a Master Service Agreement (MSA) to sign.


After receiving a signed final contract, you meet your assigned project manager and other team members, and we kick off the development process.

Your role

Reviewing and signing the project terms and Master Service Agreement.

Our role

Preparing the paperwork and adding final touches to the development roadmap.


Sprint 0

Week one is the implementation phase and entails setting up the environment, downloading relevant technologies, establishing processes, and everything in between. Together, we prioritize the backlog of app features for design and development.

workflow step

To make sure everything works like a well-oiled machine, we assign a project manager and tech lead to every project, who take responsibility for processes, code quality, and leading the project in general.

Your role

Providing feedback if needed.

Our role

Setting everything up.



Subsequent sprints focus on implementing user stories related to specific features. The Agile methodology guarantees that our work aligns with your vision—we stay in frequent communication and do regular iterations. The final results of each sprint will be presented during a demo meeting after which a feature will be either directed for reworking or placed in the waiting line for deployment/release. Daily standups, planning, and retrospective meetings help us maintain momentum and build trust within the team.

As an agency, we’ve got the ability to share experiences across project teams. That means your team can approach other experts from Monterail and use their advice and expertise in your product.

Your role

Providing regular feedback and staying in touch with the team.

Our role

Building beautiful, reliable software.


Our process

Developers build features following designed guidelines, emphasizing efficiency and responsiveness. We prioritize unit testing and automated tests to ensure a bug-free product.

Code Review

Developers ensure code quality and adherence to standards through code reviews, a Q&A process for their written code.

Quality Assurance

Before release, our QA experts rigorously test features on various browsers and devices to ensure flawless performance. Our certified team acts as a second set of eyes, preventing any potential bugs.

Design (Optional)

We manage UI/UX design. Designers craft interactive prototypes using tools like Axure or Invision to outline user journeys. After approval from you and the development team, these prototypes evolve into the actual user interface.



We push your app to production! If you decide it’s time to ask your beta users for feedback, our product design experts will be your partners here. They will arrange and run interviews with users, as well as document them, outlining the most important insights. Based on that and a retrospective meeting we hold for the production team, we plan future sprints.

workflow step

Development is a cycle. Once we deliver your MVP, we start working on a scaling strategy for your product. In subsequent sprints, we will focus on developing those features which will make your product highly desirable to your end-users.

Your role

Celebrating! And working with us on the scaling strategy.

Our role

Definitely not slowing down. Planning future iterations and starting new ones.


Maintenance and long-term partnership

Once your digital product is up and running, we scope the plan for upcoming releases and go through the backlog once again to understand what we may work on in the future. In addition to releasing new features, we ensure that the existing ones are working as intended and update them based on user feedback.

workflow step

We value long-term partnerships at Monterail, so we focus on scaling up your MVP and making sure that it delights your users.

Your role

Helping us shape the roadmap for future releases and improvements.

Our role

Ensuring continuous delivery with product maintenance and iterations.
