Why your business needs software development to grow?

Think about an industry that is very physical in nature, so not a digital one. Consider industrial manufacturing. That’s a very physical industry: big machines and people in big warehouses doing projects. But it’s also very driven by digital processes and software: Big Data, virtual reality, automated testing, Internet of Things, etc. You are seeing the same in logistics, too -- augmented reality and other software-driven processes are combining to digitally transform an older industry.

Why should you consider having a software development partner in Croatia

When most people think of offshoring, outsourcing, or nearshoring their software development, the countries that come to mind first include India, Russia, China, Ukraine, and Poland. You don’t hear as much about Croatia, where we are based. Most American companies tend to know Croatia mostly for Game of Thrones sets, and not as much for software development.

One of the biggest concerns people tend to have with outsourcing a function, especially a function as crucial as software development, is “How do I know I can trust the team I’m giving this work to? How can I trust them if I don’t see them every day in my HQ offices?”

The importance of engineering team stability

Turnover can be especially bad for engineering / development teams, because losing crucial knowledge from a dev team can set back the entire road map. If a great performer in marketing leaves, that would also be a loss, but the tactics of marketing can usually be picked up by the rest of the team.
