When it comes to making life easier for businesses and consumers, thousands of problem solvers are stepping up to the plate. The pandemic has witnessed an increase in “out-of-the-box” solutions using SaaS products.
Now, let’s take a closer look at the SaaS product development process to understand what’s going on.
As you know, we all like building things, whether to make our lives simpler or to create something new altogether. As individuals and teams grow increasingly dispersed, the need to collaborate successfully becomes even more critical. Apps such as Google Drive, Slack, Jira, and others have served this role, but the problem is that they have not evolved with the times. Also, they do not address issues end-to-end.
Let’s assume you have a billion-dollar B2B app idea and want to take it to the market. The product management journey will begin with the following:
|1. Performing research|
|2. Managing new feature requests|
|3. Planning roadmaps|
|4. Scoping features for monthly/quarterly release|
|5. Preparing specs|
|6. Product design process|
|8. Quality check|
|9. Preparation for launch|
If the issue is turning a SaaS idea into a profitable business and managing revisions is a difficult process, the problems will include:
|1. Time-consuming setup|
|2. A lack of bespoke processes for the product and development team|
|3. Siloed information|
|4. Time-consuming data integration across many applications|
|5. Arduous training and onboarding processes for personnel across several platforms.|
Today, we rely on ancient methods and antiquated approaches. To stay in sync with the fast-paced SaaS market of today and effortlessly develop excellent SaaS products, it is necessary to change and adapt to changing behavior.
On that note, allow us to introduce you to a next-generation product management platform,

There are several pain points that product management faces as a result of the use of last-gen methodologies, leading to unnecessary iterations in development. Since tools across the flow are diverse, teams generally work in silos and do not collaborate much. This can lead to off-target product development. To resolve this, let’s discuss the problems that Freshflows can help you solve:
|User Feedback||Users can use wall templates to gather user feedback and integrate with third-party apps to streamline the process of collecting and storing feedback in a single space. For instance, Freshflows interfaces with most survey platforms such as Google Docs, Type-form, Survey Monkey, and so on. These can be utilized for product research.|
|Product Backlog Management||Instead of utilizing numerous applications, users can utilize Freshflows’ backlog template wall to track backlogs from different sources on a single app.|
|Feature Prioritization||Users can add Prioritization templates including RICE, Value vs. Effort, MoSCoW, Weighted Scoring, and other publicly available templates. All they have to do is enter information and, if necessary, customize it.|
|Communicating Roadmaps||After gathering feedback, keep track of the backlog and prioritize it. Team members can create roadmaps using our templates, which include Now – Next Later, feature roadmaps, theme-based roadmaps, quarter-based roadmaps, release roadmaps, and more.|
