Development of digital products

ChipQuest is a perfect example of how to create a unique digital business model by applying your professional experience and knowledge

The big aim of this project was to bring Chipquest to life and have a real application ready for actual customers and traffic. Even though there is no question that there is a huge need to overcome the hurdle of semiconductors shortage, there were other hypotheses to be validated.
We wanted to develop an MVP that was far more than a simple demo application. It includes the main functionalities and ensures a solid customer experience. The user should not get a touch of using an MVP. 

How the Biberei helped to collect valuable feedback more efficiently

Together with the nonprofit organization we integrate e.V. we developed the web application we project. The application helps the volunteers at we integrate e.V. to collect valuable feedback about the projects and events they run. We created a browser-based web application that lists current projects and events. Users can look up projects and sign up for events.

While working on we project, we paid special attention to accessibility. Most of the users browse the web application with a mobile phone. That’s why developed all user-facing pages in a responsive style. Furthermore, it was very important to provide the application in multiple languages. We provided we integrate with features to add new languages and translations to the application.

Dream big, start small - how to develop a soccer prediction app within days

This project really demanded us when it comes to time and budget constraints. We had the task to develop a football prediction app not within weeks, but within days. The functionalities required were the following: 

  • User management with different roles and permissions 
  • Possibility to create leagues, games and teams as an administrator
  • Interface for users to predict the games and see the actual result including their game points
  • Automatic calculation of the gained points for each user for each game. The calculation has a lot of constraints. 
  • Leaderboard for the users, as all as the administrator which is ranked by two constraints. 

Risikoanalysen aus der Cloud - Webanwendung von variate.energy

Mit den Gründern Charlotte und Joachim von variate.energy haben wir gemeinsam eine Webanwendung entwickelt, die robuste Risiko- und Wirtschaftlichkeitsanalysen für Geschäftskunden im Bereich erneuerbare Energien anbieten soll. Die Analysen helfen den Kunden von variate.energy, PV- und Windenergie-Projekte besser planen zu können, indem Risiken aus wetterbedingten Schwankungen schon während der Planung mit einbezogen werden.
Dazu haben wir den von variate.energy entwickelten Algorithmus zur Analyse von wetterbedingten Variabilitäten und deren Effekt auf die Energieproduktion aus Erneuerbaren in die Cloud überführt. Diesen haben wir mit einem Frontend kombiniert, um die Ergebnisse des Algorithmus für die Nutzer einfach abrufbar zu machen.
Durch Low-Code-Tools haben wir die Entwicklungszeit kurz und den Einarbeitungsaufwand geringhalten können, sodass die Gründer schon schnell mit einer ersten Lösung auf den Markt gehen können und sich hauptsächlich auf die Entwicklung ihres Algorithmus konzentrieren können.

Die Biberei hat bei der Planung und Umsetzung der Systemarchitektur maßgeblich mitgewirkt. Außerdem haben wir unseren tiefen Einblick in die IT- und Toollandschaft genutzt, um passende Tools auszuwählen und beratend tätig zu werden.

Financial education in a new way - the Fibi App

Together with Beyond Saving we have developed a mobile application (Android and iOS) for financial education, which has never existed before. The fundamental idea is to combine financial education and gamification. We accomplished the product in just a few weeks what others would take months to do. From an idea to beta testing in a matter of weeks. The product is not a prototype, but has been built for ongoing development and to scale.

The Beavery not only took over the complete software development. On top of that, we were able to apply our capabilities in the areas of product strategy, validation of hypotheses, feature roadmap, UX testing and piloting.

Learn more about the technical background of the product and how we collaborated.

Business modelling

We can only do software development? Not at all! In all our projects we never just focus on software development. We always consider the entire product and work with our customers to evaluate the business model. Specifically, we have years of experience in the following capabilities and can offer consultation and support:

  • Design of a business model with the help of Business Model Canvas
  • Formulate hypotheses and highlight validation possibilities
  • Calculation of a business case and determination of any underlying assumptions
  • Customer interviews and feedback loops as a foundation for MVP development
  • Features derivation for the first MVP and further product releases
  • Piloting of business models

Professional and organizational leadership of agile teams

As the people responsible for the entire IT scope of specific solutions, we have experience in the organization and efficient leadership. This includes planning, designing, developing and approving new developments, but also running, supporting and training customers. We understand cultural differences and the specific nature of remote teams. We can accomplish a wide variety of tasks, in a timely manner, and with a high level of customer satisfaction.

In addition to professional organization, we also have experience in the professional leadership of agile teams. We can combine the best of the worlds of corporate management and agile leadership. Additional leadership skills in the area of digital leadership have been acquired in a practical manner and applied in various ways and trained internally.

On a regular basis, we share our experiences and thoughts on modern leadership in talks and podcasts.
