While consumer centric strategies are being challenged during these unusual times, Mushin offers to place the final consumer at the heart of companies’ creative processes. An answer to develop products remotely, visually and digitally, by uniting product stakeholders. A digital platform for visual co-creation, a digitalized focus group.

Developing products and innovating remotely, it’s possible!
From first product inspirations to approval of samples, product owners are not connected enough to other actors of the product development process. Communication within multidisciplinary teams is linear and sequential most of the time, with only 20% of creative ideas being saved in the upstream process.

Thanks to real time and visual interactions, Mushin makes the process efficient and accessible: 100% of ideas, product intentions and adjustments are capitalized, and multi-skilled teams are coordinated. A common collaboration platform to guarantee innovation, involvement, and a strong link between all product stakeholders.

For Cuisinella, “engaging consumers in the innovation”, great!
“Gather together and place the consumers in the innovation process to develop new products ideas in few weeks”. Early adopter Cuisinella, from the Schmidt group, used the Mushin interface to revolutionize the product development process by placing the final customer at its center and truly bring to life their consumer-centric strategies.

Used as a digital focus group, Mushin brings a live solution to listen to consumer trends allowing to identify pain points and imagine together product innovations. The platform aligns the product engineer and designers with the final consumer through a direct dialogue. Cuisinella places consumer needs at the center of its creative process, all 100% remotely.

While half of the planet is thinking about coming out of the stay at home order to go back to work, many wonder how to develop products remotely, to answer the issue of cancelled business trips, or to organize focus groups with consumers? Mushin adapted its digital platform for co-creation: mobile and web, customizable in a few hours, with a creative process that allows the visual to be at the center of the discussion about products without meeting in the same physical place. 

Preparing the post lock-in period
Because work methods in the following months will be different but product development objectives stay the same, Mushin is the opportunity to move forward differently. 
Traveling less, meeting digitally and sharing our advancement differently is the solution to speed up recovery. Mushin facilitates this process by answering the needs of coordination and staying connected, simplification of the collect and sharing of information, and alignment on common topics, today and tomorrow!

David Farcot, head of design at Salomon, is convinced. “The accessible, modular and visual interface, paired with the various possibilities of interaction among creative stakeholders, is allowing us to maintain a high level of richness, fluidity and dynamism in our day to day creative process, while we’re all sitting at home.” 

Despite remote work, the platform truly digitalizes the design wall and makes in interactive even remotely.
