11 May The Best App For Your Business
Running your own business can be costly and confusing. There are new tools released every day, such as new software, strategies and mobile applications. By the time you have mastered one new technological marvel, another one comes out and you still feel like a kid trying to learn a typewriter in the 1950’s. Have you thought about moving your company’s entire business to the World Wide Web? Before you jump head-first into a major project like web development or a new website, you should check if it would be the best thing for you or your company.
Do you remember the old Blockbuster stores? Good luck finding one in business now, because thanks to companies like Netflix we no longer have to leave our home to pick up a movie. We can either have them mailed directly to us on a schedule or we go online and stream them to our TVs. As time goes on, more and more companies are choosing to move majority of their business online. Look at Amazon for example; they used to sell books but now you can shop for groceries on their site. The Internet is definitely the future, pretty soon you won’t have to go to the store for anything.
However, one thing to remember is you must have the right team behind you before you begin your online adventure. That is where we come in. We design and develop your business for the Internet. Keep in mind you need to take it one step at a time, even if you hire any professional like us to assist or do the hard work for you. Work on one thing at a time so you do not kill your business with the changes.
As summarized by the point I made in the following article on mrc-productivity.com, a big mistake in starting a new project for many businesses is “No alignment with the business need”:
Too many development projects start from a feature perspective, and not a solution perspective. A business user sees a feature or application they want, and requests it from development. The problem: This feature does not solve a business need.
