Real Business Cases of SaaS Web Development for Startups
Business Case 1: Custom SaaS Training Software for eLearning Startup
The US startup came to Belitsoft with a mission to train employees effectively by replacing costly and ineffective traditional eLearning methods with a personalized interactive web platform.
The startup founder decided to develop an LMS from scratch due to previous unexciting and limited learning experience with a standard platform.
The development process included a discovery phase (to get a clear vision and scope of the project), content creation (by digitizing a hard copy), UX/UI design (to create an engaging conversational user interface), choosing a suitable tech stack, development, and software testing.
Inspired by the capabilities of a new training platform, the startup founder is considering further software evolution with the help of Belitsoft (mobile version, Artificial Intelligence, etc).
Business Case 2: Custom SaaS EHR Development for a HealthTech Startup
Our Client, a US-based company, decided to create a software product to automate manual tasks and boost the effectiveness of healthcare professionals.
Due to the lack of in-house developers, the Client opted for software development outsourcing to get the necessary skills quickly and much cheaper than in the USA.
Belitsoft got the task to develop the MVP for a future EHR system from scratch. The Client didn’t choose off-the-shelf platforms because their customization would be expensive and difficult to maintain in the long run.
To translate business needs into detailed technical requirements correctly, Belisoft started by assigning an experienced Business Analyst with proven expertise and deep domain-specific knowledge in the healthcare industry.
The development team chose the modern microservices architecture approach to develop a highly scalable healthcare software product with powerful functionality. Considering the specifics of the Healthcare domain, we applied the HIPAA-compliant server architecture proposed by Belitsoft to the Client to ensure the app compliance with HIPAA requirements.
As a result of cooperation, a SaaS EHR platform with a simple-to-use UI was developed. It allows busy healthcare professionals to enable the accurate and efficient collection, systematization, and multi-faceted use of relevant clinical data.
Business Case 3: Custom SaaS Marketplace Development for an Agritech Startup
Our Client, the US-based startup, decided to enter the AgriTech market with a unique and helpful idea of connecting farmers and laborers through a marketplace app. The startup founder came to Belitsoft by reference from another business owner who used to work with our company and who recommended us as a team that takes responsibility and ownership over their work and does the job right, meeting the set-out deadlines and budget.
The initial Client’s request focused on the idea and the functionality they expected. However, the startup team didn’t specify any technical requirements. For this reason, Belitsoft suggested full-cycle development services, including UX/UI design, business and technical consulting, and software testing.
After agreeing on the details, our specialists started by mapping the idea to estimate the project cost. The next crucial step was to attract investors - and our designers created mock-ups for the project for this purpose. As a result, the startup managed to fundraise enough to proceed.
Developing an MVP was the first milestone that would allow the business to release the app and start monetizing it in a short term. Then, we planned the second phase - further development after the app launch to enhance functionality.
The MVP development and a series of extra features took 6 months. Thanks to a well-thought choice of tech stack (Laravel and React) with the availability of ready-to-use code, our software development team saved approximately 80-120 hours for the startup and lowered its development expenses. As a result, the Client received both web and mobile versions of the app for iOS and Android.
After launching the marketplace app, the startup experienced 113% user growth. Now, it has got nearly 2,000 active users and the number is growing.
Business Case 4: Custom Chatbot and SAAS Web Platform for Marketing Automation Startup
Our Client is the EU founder and CEO of a startup promoting a new approach to lead generation for businesses.
The business owner needed engineering resources with the skillset that would let him develop a human-like chatbot to convert website visitors to leads and a database app for storing these leads. He found Belitsoft via Google and chose us out of several companies due to “the most professional impression”, according to the founder’s words.
The Client needed full-cycle development services. So at first, our business analyst gathered requirements to outline the technical details, cost, and scope of the project.
After that, the development started. For creating an intelligent chatbot that would naturally imitate a human consultant and provide personalized assistance, our developers “taught” the chatbot to determine the semantics of the page and discussion to answer with personalized and context-aware messages.
Belitsoft’s development team also used NLP (Natural language processing) techniques to make the chatbot act naturally. For that, they created predefined semantic categories with 3000 most used keywords, applied a word tokenization algorithm to parse a text into keywords, included a syntactic analyzer to remove stop-words and bring words to base forms, and many more.
To effectively gather and manage all the incoming leads, the chatbot was accompanied by a SaaS web platform that serves as a database for businesses.
Consequently, the startup founder got a chatbot that is simple to use and highly efficient in lead generation. Together with a chatbot came a database that prevented businesses from losing potential customers.
Both solutions made a powerful combination for lead generation for businesses.
Business Case 5: PoC of Cloud-Based Virtual Fuel Cards for a Logistics Startup
The Client, a European startup in the logistics and transportation industry, partnered with Belitsoft to develop a cloud-based Virtual Fuel Cards (VFC) system for European truck carriers.
As the startup didn’t have in-house resources to fulfill an idea, they searched for a reliable partner with the domain expertise to outsource not only the development process, but also business analysis, UX/UI design, and QA.
The business founders lacked technical understanding of how it would work, so our team started with a discovery phase to check the idea against reality (the analysis of the target audience, creation of mockups, and outlining of the app functionality).
When at the discovery stage some serious technical issue was detected, we suggested making a PoC (Proof of Concept) to verify how the software product would function in a real-world environment. Proof of Concept revealed that the business idea wasn’t viable due to fuel cards' technical specifics.
Even though the Client didn’t proceed with the product development, thanks to our analytical efforts it cost the startup only $2400 and 3 weeks to test their idea and avoid the risk of losing up to $200k of the planned project budget.

To manage the project, our team can use the scrum methodology.
We have a dedicated scrum master who handles meetings and administration details.
Our scrum master hosts video conferences and meetings, so there are plenty of opportunities for your questions to be answered.
We meet every day for 15 minutes to explain priorities and progress, provide feedback, and go over any questions you have or concerns on your end.
Sometimes we can meet more often to show how we have incorporated your comments.
We’re flexible enough to work around your schedule.
By the end of the week, we have a call to review what has been done during that week (weekly scrum events). You review the deliverables, add comments, approve the tasks, and then we plan for the next subtasks for the following week.
We keep doing this continuously to make sure that we optimized our time and are as efficient as possible. You’ll see the improvement by the next meeting.
You can communicate with the whole team directly, including a project manager, and the developers.
We use such tools as Slack for transparent and clear communications and Jira to project manage the sprints and coordinate the project.
During the development, you change the scope to include a mobile component, for instance.
We focus on producing deliverables on time, even after a significant scope change.
