Build an effective core team

A core team is the spine of any software development company. An effective and loyal core team can help you achieve success in the development field. But who should be present in the core team? And what are the qualities that a core team individual should possess?

A core team should have a CTO (Chief Technology Officer) or more than one depending on the size of your company. A CTO is the most important asset of any IT company. A CTO should be inspiring and instrumental in getting the best talent aboard. A project manager and a software architecture can also be included if you want to make your core team more effective.

Tough recruitment process

Even with just the core team, you cannot plan, design, develop, test and deploy your software; you need assistance for your core team to do that. You can recruit talented individuals who are experts in their respective fields who will assist your core team in building better softwares.

A software developer with inadequate developing skills will slow down your development process. So to eliminate weak candidates during the recruitment you have to toughen the interview process. You can hire a candidate with experience or a client reference to ensure the candidate’s creditability and capability. The candidate you hire should be a team player and must possess good communication skills.

Keep in pace with the latest technology

If you ignore the wave of new technology then it will become a tsunami that will wipe out your entire business empire. Users that download your software or apps are looking for fresh and trendy technology to work with. If you fail to serve your users with the latest technology then the user would find a new software or application that satisfies their needs.

So to avoid such fate, make sure the team you hire have expertise in the latest tech. Or you can train your existing employees in new technology . Sure it would be costly but it will save you from the trouble of recruiting new employees.

Importance of company culture and work culture

A successful company is not only defined by its quality of apps but also the values and visions that company holds. A company culture will define your motive to your clients and customers. How they perceive your business ideas and your products are determined by your company’s culture. You can promote your company culture by organizing social events to showcase your activities, writing blogs or making videos.

Start-ups have an open work environment and good atmosphere and good work culture is the exact reason people join them. You can arrange face-to-face meetings with your employees on a weekly basis and understand their problems and you can celebrate your good times together as well as stand together in difficult times. These things will create a positive work culture.

Product marketing

Once your product is ready you can start focusing on the marketing strategies. Any IT company needs to be sure about the marketing strategies that it is going to use. The company should start by creating a marketing model for a small group of audience and replicate the same marketing model to other different audience groups. The strategies you use should be absolute and cost-effective if you are a start-up.

Monitor the bottom line

Bringing profit is as important as delivering a great product to sustain growth. So you should monitor the profit that your product makes. You can do so by creating a dashboard that will monitor the income, profit, and expenses which will determine the key performance indicators (KPIs). By this way, you can keep track of all departments of your company. Suppose if you need your sales to go up, then you will know the exact amount to invest in the sales department.
