First project in Solvay Digital Studio with VISEO Asia

November 08, 2018
July 23rd was the grand opening of Solvay Digital Studio in Singapore, with the participation of VISEO Asia.
The objective of the digital studio that has already two counterparts in Brussels and Princeton, is to create new apps to support Solvay businesses, with a strong focus on the user. The apps (web or mobile) are first designed based on Google Venture methodology with a short design sprint, to gather users’ needs and provide a first UI prototype. Then, there is a period of incubation in the studio of 3 months maximum to create a MVP, following Scrum framework.
VISEO Asia developed the first app for the Solvay Digital Studio in Singapore, in 3 months, 6 sprints, in ReactNative, based on the Google Cloud Platform.  The objective of this app “GlobeTrotter” is to support Solvay travellers when they are overseas, by giving them information, tips on the country and the opportunity to get in touch and share activities with the other travellers in the same place at the same time.
During those 6 sprints, the users were solicitated to give their feedback on the UI prototype before it was developed and to participate in ideation and sketching sessions. The app is now entering a beta testing phase before being officially deployed.
Solvay Digital Studio is the perfect illustration of the Design Thinking process. The objective of both the design sprint and the incubation is to get a working MVP in a short period without engaging too much budget, to be able to test it and decide if it is worth going further with a more complete product. 
VISEO Asia was thrilled to be part of this first adventure and is looking forward to the next steps.
