Importance Of Developing Software Within A Short Period
Every software development company wants to deliver software fast to their clients. Time is always a concern. Making every second count is so important that so many companies became successful and then vanished because they couldn’t keep the pace of developing software with the growth.
The critical factors you should know
Although time is of significant value, and you need to speed up your development, but you should be careful about that too, mainly when it is a long-term project. The companies mentioned above, which sets up, grow and then suddenly vanishes is because they started with good speed and they, therefore, became successful. But when time passes, they can’t hold up with their rate, and so slowly they drain down and die.
You don’t need to see your software development company die that kind of death. But then, what should you do? You can’t even make a success with a very slow speed. No one will hire you if you serve only 10% of the client in one year time.
Don’t overwork your employees
What happens is that a custom software development company did very well when they stepped into the market. They used to complete their tasks very fast, and slowly they also began to get more and more clients and big projects. The employees used to work very hard. They used to work at least 12 to 14 hours per day. Some of them used to sleep very little, and lots of energy drinks and coffees were there to help them out to stay awake. But slowly the employees started to get slow, they couldn’t keep up with the long stressful work hours and some started to leave and some began to fall sick.
The company hired new staff, and that company had already made a name in the market, so getting skilful IT professionals again wasn’t hard, but still, the same thing happened. Therefore, gradually even the word spread that how stressful it is to work with the company and skilful professionals won’t apply anymore, and the company went out of business.
Balance is the key to maintain the speed
So, while you set up a custom software development company, you need to know that more than money, which is entirely necessary too, a good working environment is more critical. Your professionals shouldn’t work more than 6 to 8 hours a day, and you must take good care of them as then they will be more productive.
