With 20+ years of experience in different product service setups, not only in product release, but also in post-development support, with reference in complex systems for market leads with large organizations, shows that Seavus has proven expertise and qualified professionals to take care of your services, says Menche Galapcheva Jankova, Senior Project Manager at Seavus.
What is included in a product development lifecycle in Seavus?
Over the years, Seavus has been part of many product lifecycles for its clients, either taking care of the full product delivery and support or boosting their development capacity with different technical expertise. This encompasses the solution architecture, business analysis, the UI and UX, testing-manual/automation, database development, CI/CD expertise, system integration and implementation, customer support, what means all technical aspects including project management. Having a team with extensive expertise introducing different management methodologies, we’ve managed to set up a number of successful stories for high efficient team organizations focusing on building self-organizing teams, promoting a result-driven culture with high attention on people retention and product and domain know-how.
Product development services and deliveries could be very exciting especially to bring a scalable product that would be low-cost implemented and integrated to external systems and environments and at the same time highly stable in production environment. It’s a great challenge when there’s product expansion and the scaling is not always a smooth sailing in terms of entering it into the re-organization, and, at the same time, keeping the delivery continuity and keeping everyone on the same pace. If I look at one of our biggest product teams that I was leading, we’ve been challenged with team expansion that doubled the size to 50 members in the last two years, with a need to orchestrate over 10 different technical profiles of complex product domains. With the hybrid model of the Nexus and Spotify methodology it has grown in a scalable organization that can easily cope with the upcoming challenges.
So, from this perspective, it’s even more exciting when we look at how we’ve managed and learned with the different cases, providing product services and, at the same time, we’ve grow our expertize by supporting our partners.
What are the perks of being Seavus’ business partner?
If I’m on the other side and need to decide for a business partner, I would definitely ask for a partner that has a proven track record with a wide background of providing product development services. With 20+ years of experience in different product service setups, not only in product release, but also in post-development support, with reference in complex systems for market leads with large organizations, this shows that Seavus has proven expertise and qualified professionals to take care of your services. As an important asset, cultural compatibility and the experts’ fluency in English definitely ensure that there will be no communication barriers or any doubts for easy collaboration.
“We’ve been next to our clients during the whole period, and if I look at this point today, after six months, it’s incredible that we cannot even see small impacts on the deliveries and communication whilst keeping the business continuity. That proves to me that what takes is a stable organization with well-defined processes, and a positive professional attitude”.
Why choose nearshoring/remotization instead of an in-house model, when it comes to product development services?
Through the years, by supporting our business partners in their product services, we’ve seen that outsourcing their product service brings another values that is even more beneficial than the cost efficiency. I will elaborate operationally. Beside the expertise in delivering products, Seavus maintains a high retention rate with the members working on the specific domain, which is the key value of keeping the know-how and accelerating the teams’ velocity. With the time and material model, and offering a pool of available and highly technical experienced professionals, this offers a very flexible model of easy rump-up and rump-down of teams when there is a need to boost the timelines.
On the other hand, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, more and more companies are moving to remote and wide-world concepts, so having a remote team in Seavus will allow for an easy attachment to their organization and there are no constraints in that perspective. We’ve been next to our clients during the whole period, and if I look at this point today, after six months, it’s incredible that we cannot even see small impacts on the deliveries and communication with our partners whilst keeping the business continuity. That proves to me that what takes is a stable organization with well-defined processes, and a positive professional attitude. However, from business point of view and visible flexibility and adaptability, the pandemic proved that remote teams do make difference.
