#Step by step
Our recommendation: always listen to your customer's needs first!
We are aware that it is difficult and expensive in terms of investment to achieve a 100% complete print App that is flexible enough to adapt to any customer project.
Furthermore, to build such a complex App as a print App in a single iteration would undoubtedly be too complex to design from scratch.
Our advice: adopt an Agile approach!
- Interview your future potential customers about their needs
- Set priorities based on the most common ones
- Develop in successive iterations
