    USER DRIVEN

    SOFTWARE DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

    Blue Otter creates software for mobile devices and web browsers, but that's just the start. Our applications define a great User Experience (UX) because we approach all projects with market validation, metrics, and extensive usability testing.

    PRODUCT DISCOVERY

    WITH MARKET VALIDATION

    Even the best product idea needs a market that will embrace it. More importantly, though, than just idea, is the structure (or design) of the product's service. We validate your application's assumptions with prototypes to steer software development in the right direction before a project begins.

    DATA DRIVEN

    USER EXPERIENCE DESIGN

    Good software design is about creating simple solutions for complex problems. We tackle challenges by modeling different solutions for specific user sets based on real data. The result is a software development process that knows its target, which means less internal debate...and more user optimization. That's great user experience.

    RAPID PROTOTYPING

    FOR MOBILE AND WEB DEVELOPMENT

    Software development that is based on rapid prototyping and user testing is best equipped to yield a final product with precise functionality and great user experience in the shortest timeframe and lowest budget.

    USER DRIVEN

    SOFTWARE DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

    We already said it, but we think it's important so it's here again. Our design process focuses on users from beginning to end, resulting in applications that are intuitive, market-validated, and lean enough to keep up with future changes. At Blue Otter, it's all about you.
