Dev Team Space was Ready for the Pandemic Years Before and Can Now Help Other Companies Adjust

·5 min read

LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / November 11, 2021 / The pandemic changed the lives of consumers and is continuing to change how companies do business. Alexey Semeney is the founder and CEO of DevTeam.Space, a software development company that offers services globally.

He explains that companies are already at the stage where they need to transition to become remote-first companies. This article is for new business owners or executives who survived the pandemic and see the need to transition to online or automate certain parts of their business that have been neglected.

Alexey Semeney predicted the need for this transition a long time ago. "I found it hard to believe that even in 2016, clients were still reliant on in-person communication for hiring software developers to build a product." Semeney describes. "We also saw that many clients were still relying heavily on the offline operations, and when we suggested that we automate this part of the business process for them, they were reluctant. The client would not want to improve their product or business operations even when the benefit was obvious. Not just small businesses but large corporations too. Now that the pandemic has hit, some companies are probably regretful."

He continues, "Technically, the world was going into full remote mode much sooner than the pandemic hit. After living in Silicon Valley for seven years, it was surprising to see certain businesses hesitant to increase the level of investments in their online product development and online business operations. It makes things so much easier. And why meet in person when you can have a Zoom call?"

Now that we are in the pandemic, and it's no surprise, it makes sense to try and stay ahead of the online transition. It's time to move forward. In 2016, DevTeam.Space decided to no longer attend conferences and events or have in-person sales meetings. "We made a conscious choice to no longer use these outdated marketing approaches," Semeney explains. "Meeting in person goes against the trend when everything is going online."

After different marketing experiments, DevTeam.Space observed that the best strategy in the industry is SEO (search engine optimization) for customer acquisition in the long run. "We cut all the other marketing activities," Semeney explains.

DevTeam.Space committed to the new initiative and decided that 90% of its clients should be acquired through online market activities and that 100% of clients should be served remotely. The company then crystallized its development process to enhance communication. "We developed a proprietary AI-powered agile product development process that helps manage the developers," Semeney explains.

It sends automated updates, follow-ups, performs task management actions, and notifies clients and developers to ensure all procedures are up to date and everyone is on the same page. "We figured out how to structure the service side so that customers would feel comfortable working with us without meeting in person," Semeney says.

DevTeam.Space is a community of 62 expert development teams. Each development team has 10-50 developers and specializes in a particular technology stack. These specialists can accommodate various software development needs, including website and mobile app development, blockchain solutions, fintech apps, and even game development for companies of any size.

DevTeam.Space has an office headquarters, but the company already had remote teams when the shutdown went into effect. "Going remote was not destructive to the company; we could still serve clients as before the lockdown," Semeney describes. "The employees didn't see each other, but we had the same communication, processes, and tools." He continues, " The software development process is centered around different programming languages, people, and tools."

Admittedly, it was easier for DevTeam.Space to structure its company this way, but it is more difficult for those who operate a business in person. Restaurants that survived the shutdown, for instance, are still serving customers in the real world. "The ones that are still in business have adapted and made their business visible with an online application and promoted themselves," Semeney emphasizes. "Another example of this is in the movie industry; building streaming applications have continued to bring in revenue."

Semeny recommends that offline businesses transition to online applications, explore the top players in the industry who have already invested heavily in their online presence, and learn from them. Even in-person businesses should shift in-house team operations online and utilize online business tools. Have business calls with your team and then translate these tasks to online platforms so that all members are a part of it. Increase the level of online services you can provide and increase communication with your clientele. Have them send requests through online applications and follow through.

Even if another lockdown happens, you will be ready, and your business will survive with customer acquisition supported by online traffic. Having your in-house team use online tools means more flexibility and higher efficiency per team member. For some companies, this transition could take a couple of weeks. For others, it might take a couple of years to transition fully, but it is vital in the world we live in today.
