What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

We are a start-up company based in Brisbane that have developed a website that will assist students in getting their business off the ground and making their passion their pay check. Starting a business to most individuals in the beginning is quite often intimidating and can be associated with high establishment costs. Our goal with Yappay is to eliminate these two barriers by providing a starting platform that initially takes advantage of an individual’s inner network of friends, acquaintances and colleagues to make taking the leap into business a simple step. Therefore this tool could be highly desirable for a student that is qualied, approaching completion or is working towards their quali cation and wanting to commence developing their client base and bringing in income.

Future Releases of Yappay

How many times have you witnessed on social media a request from friends for recommendations on a good hairdresser or even a private tutor for their children? Our second release of Yappay aims to connect these two As mentioned we are constantly developing and improving our product and the rst release of Yappay has the focus on sellers and buyers connecting in order to communicate and make transactions. In the next release of Yappay we will have the function for sellers and buyers to be linked as “friends” so that sellers can utilise the site as a basic Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tool. From the perspective of a buyer, this tool is also extremely helpful for an individual to develop their list of personal “suppliers” that they can consequently recommend to friends and other individuals within their network. This functionality has a focus on utilising the power of word of mouth in order for an individual to share to their network who their preferred suppliers are.
