Our Approach to Your Project

Whether it’s a small task, functional system or app creation, we know that our best work happens when our clients and team speak the same language.
 
Building something significant for our clients properly, takes a weighty amount of effort. Yet how exactly do we go about getting everyone in sync?

We always encourage our clients to be active right from the start. We ask every client and their team to be as involved as possible for a successful discovery phase. We want not only in the ultimate product, but the process itself to be interesting, creative, clear and gratifying. For some clients it’s their first time teaming up with a software development company. Thus, we believe it’s meaningful that their experience runs with ease. 

1. Thoroughly Planning 

At this starting step there is knowledge transfer and research. Understanding both business and user goals. Together with the client’s team we are carefully reviewing and analyzing our findings and planning out the overall implementation strategy. As gatekeepers of projects and timelines, we help set reasonable forecasts for delivering your asked end result.

2. Diminish Drawbacks

We want to cut down the learning curve when you get on board with our team. The project itself already requires your time and regard, so why make the process more difficult? One way we diminish drawbacks is by using simple project management tools. We like YouTrack, it lets you track and manage issues from the moment they’re reported to the moment they’re fixed. Information is continuously exchanged over YouTrack and quick questions are answered in real-time on Skype.

3. Building Trust

Defensible, the most important ingredient of any successful relationship. We are as invested in your success as in our own. DAS has a consultative approach and client oriented – we always consult our clients and advise them the best ways of achieving their business scopes. We are always trying to be aligned culturally, and are focused on partnership. Our clients and companies aren’t trophies, they’re friends we’ve met on our journey. That’s one of the motive we advocate transparency throughout each phase of our process. Check out some more details how we do that here. After all, our tagline is “The Code You Trust”, explains a lot, huh? 

Whether you are a client or an agency, creating clear expectations on both sides helps foster trust and confidence. Nonetheless, save time and money, and let’s face it – brain cells.

A letter from your future colleague, Daria

Dear Future Colleague,

I am Daria, Head of Sales, and for me DAS is a real professional adventure. I’m amongst those few people who witnessed the raise of the company, its first steps, its victories and challenges along the years. I joined the core team of DAS at the moment when its establishment was in the active process of materialization. I remember that November day when I came to see yet an empty, but already OUR first office, ah…the pleasant feeling of having your own place. It was the beginning. I met the initial small team of five developers who built the foundation of the first projects and gained the trust of our initial clients.

In the beginning, I was involved in a pilot project, not related to IT, and at some point, I was offered to try my skills in the sales department. I found it interesting, though, must confess stressful at the beginning. My colleagues trusted that I can grow my competencies in this direction. I closed my first deals and felt extremely happy. This is how I continued with the sales. In the meantime the team was growing, I was meeting great people and establishing friendly relationships.
 
Of course work is not only about friendship. Sales is a hard and responsible work. You need to always remember that it’s on you that your colleagues will be covered with tasks, projects, and of course financial benefits the next day, weeks, months.
Even though it’s not an easy job, I love my team and the way we share information, thoughts, experience, happy and sad moments together.
They are like a part of my family. It can be funny, it can be stressful.
I love to observe the difference between the dialogue you can have via emails, chats, phone calls and the moment when the person see you live. It’s like breaking the ice and entering a new space.
What I would say to new people joining DAS?… Be friendly and don’t use too much perfume, please. 🙂 
If I would be asked to share some advice for a sales person, then I would say that my main mantras are:
1. Don’t give up. Never.
2. Be yourself with your customers, because after all it’s all about human interaction.
3. Be honest in everything you do (first of all with yourself).
4. Take responsibility for your deeds. It makes you stronger and more attentive.
5. To fail is human. Learn from your fails, turn the experience into wisdom (if possible), don’t repeat it and get back to point 1.

I believe that the company is like a living house, a natural organism which can grow and evolve. In this house, every new person is like a new room with a new door which opens a new space, furnished in a distinct way, with its personal design, wallpapers, furniture and atmosphere. And each room of this house has a window with a unique view outside the house.

I wish that every new room would make the house better, stronger, more interesting, distinguished amongst many other houses and may every view from all the windows remain unique, but all as one – beautiful.

As you (maybe) can tell – being in sales doesn’t mean to lack the seed of poetry in your soul.  

Happy journeys!
