New service turns ideas and documents into functional software prototypes for large enterprises, small businesses and startups—in 48 hours.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--Business leaders and entrepreneurs struggling to create a software product now have a fast, affordable online service that can turn an innovative idea into a functional prototype within 48 hours.
iRise, whose software helps companies define better applications through the use of rapid prototyping, is now launching a service to turn a rough idea or ambiguous specification document into an interactive, data-driven prototype that can be tested in the cloud with real users.
"Anyone trying to deliver innovative software needs a way to realistically demonstrate the power of their new idea to potential customers, users and even investors," said iRise CEO and Founder Maurice Martin. "We've greatly reduced the cost and turnaround time needed to move from idea to market validation to development."
To use the iRise Express service, clients—from the smallest startups to business stakeholders in a global enterprise—simply email any available text documents, presentations, screenshots, and photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A consultant from iRise's team of product definition experts will review the documentation, then contact the client to clarify any ambiguous requirements. The consultant will create an interactive prototype, without code, using the iRise requirements definition and prototyping platform, and then publish it securely to the cloud for review.
For 60 days, changes can be incorporated by the client for free, or by iRise experts for an additional fee.
Once the design is finalized, using iRise's code generation capabilities, the prototype can be converted in minutes into functional, stand-alone HTML that can be used as the starting point by the client's development team.
