In the end, together with The Bee Corp., I created design built using no code products. This one in particular used a combination of Webflow and Airtable to give their users and customers the look and feel of a highly developed app. This also gave the Bee Corp. a way to test their assumptions in the marketplace.
The design let users quickly see all hives in an apiary at a glance and highlighted those that may have an issue. With this design beekeepers are able to see how all of their hives are doing, even if they are miles apart. The design also elevates the hierarchy of information that is important to them like humidity and temperature. It is also flexible enough to add data such as sound to give a wholistic view of hive health.
With this solution The Bee Corp. was able to prove their business modal by working with real customers and building revenue. They have gone on to raise over $750k in their pursuit of helping beekeepers.
