Almost 5 years ago, I decided it was time to start something really important, something that can change lives to better and help people achieve what they want and need. Today, I see we managed to do it. I see how once a small idea with big goals works worldwide today helping people achieve more doing what they love. That’s our mission.
As a CEO and founder, I make major corporate decisions, manage company resources and overall operations. But I don’t like micro-management and never do it. Instead, I prefer to fill my team with specialists I trust. I guess that’s really one of the points that impact success directly.
The major points are:
To not make the interview too long, I won’t talk about all 5 years of our work. Instead, I will tell you about the latest achievement. This year, Powercode became an official technical partner to the LevelUp Ukraine 2020 business forum. It is a very famous annual event held in Ukraine. Lots of speakers at this forum are government representatives, successful entrepreneurs, and other influential people, including the President of Europe Taxpayers Association, Minister of Ukraine Economy, and so on.
Powercode developed a website, mobile application, and Telegram bot to make the LevelUp Ukraine 2020 a modern digital forum that provides maximum comfort to its attendees and speakers.
On the 21st of February, we presented our new product – an AI child development mobile application. You can read about it at our website and we’re going to tell about it in detail in our blog pretty soon.
Some of the factors that influence the choice between platforms are:
Quality is definitely number one.
Accessibility of a team – even when clients choose an offshore development company, they still want easy and fast communication.
Ability to meet requirements – that’s not about following directly what clients say; it’s about the capability to listen carefully, analyze clients’ needs and goals, offer the best of all possible solutions, and implement them just the way clients need.
Emotional aspect – any collaboration should be a positive experience. Even if your team delivers high-quality products, rude behavior and continuous misunderstanding can damage any business relationship.
I guess these 4 factors are the most important.
It’s definitely the team. Our specialists are reliable and skillful experts with a creative mind and desire to be helpful. I am happy we managed to build a really strong team. Moreover, we never conduct experiments on our clients. If we want to test a new technology or something, we do it within our internal projects. Clients always get tried and true solutions.
We employ only the best talents no matter in regard to which category or working area. I can say we select skillful and efficient experts. All employees are at least middle in seniority. Currently, we’re really interested in Data Scientists.
We don’t have the minimum budget requirement for a project to take in, because it would mean we refuse to help people start something they find important.
Focus on the result. If you’re thinking what’s more important – the result or process – believe me it’s the result. You know, there is only 1 result that you will find appropriate to your goal. There can’t be any other options. If you have a goal, you must achieve exactly what you craved for. Yes, your actual achievements may exceed what you initially were targeting, but there is no way for lowering the bar. Never.
Regarding the process of getting closer to a goal you’ve set, there can be lots of options. What’s the matter of how you achieved the goal if your actions never violated social norms and law? Say, one mathematical problem may be solved in 3 different ways. So, is it really important which way you choose if the result is correct?
