In Part 3, we used merging into the motorway as an analogy to Scaling up. In the final post in this series, we cruise control on the fast lane. Using Agile Ops, we deliver a continuous value stream

Writing a Client Portal brief

Invessed is the digital fast lane for asset and wealth managers. We use an analogy of a car journey to illustrate the key components of our process.

In the previous post, we Scaled up our product, onboarding all clients to the website or portal. As we pick up speed, the challenge is to create a steady value stream through incremental enhancements. Welcome to the digital fast lane!

  1. Design Sprint - set the satnav
  2. MVP - navigate the city
  3. Scale - join the motorway
  4. Agility - cruise control on the fast-lane

Cruise control: Agile ops and continuous value creation

If you enjoy driving, a motorway is a special place. You know where you're going, and you're going there fast. The music's on and although you remain alert, a sense of ease settles in. As the scenery goes by, you cover more distance - with less effort.

Cruise control is to driving as Agility is to digital operations, an approach that emphasizes "incremental delivery, team collaboration, continual planning and learning". Agile Ops don't just support clients and build new features - they underpin business growth and transformation through a continuous stream of value.

How does it work?

During the Scaled up phase, we integrated systems, automated processes and built a wide array of features. Agile Ops builds on this success, helping you adapt to business or technological change; driving customer adoption and using data to improve the product further. Here's what you can expect:

  • User and technical support SLA
  • Adaptable Cloud hosting that keeps costs in check
  • Customer profiling and analytics
  • Proactive account management
  • Modern IT Ops via Continuous Integration / Deployment

How fast and how much?

Most clients join our Support and AgileOps programme immediately after live clients are using the website, portal or app. Specifics include:

  • Support and Cloud packages from €1.500/ month
  • Highly responsive support desk and SLA
  • Agile roadmap and curated backlog
  • IP of deliverables stays with the client
  • Can deploy on your existing Azure infrastructure

Congratulations! Enjoy life in the digital fast lane

And so, we are on cruise control on the motorway, eating up the miles with more calm and less effort. Like all journeys, we had to prepare - set the satnav, negotiate the traffic, join the motorway. But we made it!

As with a car journey, so it is with digital projects. You have to decide on a direction with a Design Sprint; create a testable MVP to get feedback; Scale up to your systems and customers; then use Agile Ops to deliver a continuous value stream that can truly drive the business forward.

As we finally wave goodbye to the analogy, I will just add that a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. Your next step is to get in touch and get moving.
