Transform Your Business Data Chaos into Strategic Success

Imagine you're running a popular online retail store, "Gizmo Gadgets," that has grown exponentially over the past year. Initially, you could comfortably manage sales records, customer service interactions, and website traffic data.

In a previous post, we walked through three key starter questions to ask when it comes to navigating sensitive data security terrain.

Securing Sensitive Data in your Software

It’s easy to get caught up rubbernecking at serious data breaches at high profile companies – and it’s equally easy to think, “well, who’d want to come after my company? We’re not that big.” This, friends, is a great way to stumble in the running of your business.

Doing Your “Homework” for Your Agency Dev Team

How to Have a Great Discovery Call with an Agency

If you think about it, a discovery call is a bit like a first date: both parties are putting their best selves forward and seeing if they have enough in common to keep going. And, just like a first date, it’s easy enough to set up. Unlike a first date, however, a quick Google search (or are we chatGPT-ing exclusively now) of the other person isn’t necessarily enough. There are five areas of a discovery call conversation that an agency will typically cover. If you can put some notes together on each area ahead of time, you’ll be in a stronger position to assess the agency you’re meeting.

Choosing Overseas vs Onshore Custom Software Partners

When you're building a startup or guiding a company through its early phase, implementing a solid growth strategy is crucial – and choosing the right custom software development partner is an important step in this process. The first fork in the road you may encounter is whether to find help onshore or overseas. We’ve noticed folks have strong opinions one way or the other about this, but it’s not either/or. There are times when onshore (especially local!) makes more sense, and times when overseas can instead make more sense. Let’s take a look.
