Tools for Success in a Virtual Organization

We are all fortunate to live in an era in which technology liberates and empowers many workers.  At Vensi we have learned that a virtual work force can be the most flexible, productive and effective organizational structure. Our team members are happy to have the ability to live and work wherever and whenever they like.

Because they have the best tools available and the freedom to extend their capabilities, their creativity and efficiency soars.  We harness this creative force and apply it to all of the our projects.  The result is mobile technology solutions of the highest quality and value. We also find that the virtual work style attracts people to Vensi that are not only talented and self-motivated, but also balanced in their personal and professional endeavors. Interesting, brilliant, hard-working people with tools that enable them to effectively work in partnership toward a common goal… Definitely a powerful recipe for success!

With any organization (virtual, brick and mortar, or any combination therein), there are always communication challenges. However, we have found and leverage some key tools that keep our team in close contact and in sync. Specifically, we are a WordSure organization, and we utilize several intuitive and dependable applications such as:

  • Join Me, Google Meeting, and Log-me-in.  These are excellent tools for screen sharing in conference calls, as well as more directed project collaborations. Our team is distributed across the US and India, so this allows us to connect all the remote folks, both in one large group and in smaller sub-groups, to share information, brainstorm, and work on programs at a tactical level.
  • Google Calendar, Voice, and Email are basic tools used and trusted across our industry for their intuitive interface, reliability and security.
  • Google Talk is the new tool that has really taken hold in our organization. When we need a quick, ad hoc chat with a colleague, this instant messaging software is perfect. It is as if we are leaning over the virtual cubicle wall and getting exactly what we need in seconds.

These tools enhance our productivity and effectiveness without getting in the way or being cumbersome; they help us to get our work done on time and to our rigorous internal standards. When you combine such communication and collaboration tools with a company culture that values creativity and teamwork, the result is a truly innovative organization. We compliment our structure, process and tools with a “can do” attitude best described by our credo: “Whatever it takes!”

Vensi has brought the best talent together under one virtual umbrella.  We are grateful for the advances in technology that have enabled us to make the Vensi experience fun and successful.  Very importantly, the skills of each individual are fully utilized and highly valued.  By providing cutting edge tools and encouraging a culture of collaboration and innovation  we are setting the pace for our industry and  each person on our team works hard to develop groundbreaking, top-tier mobile applications.  We are indeed fortunate to be living in a time when people are more free than ever to explore their creativity and create fantastic products.

Vensi Goes Global

Vensi is growing and growing fast. The market for mobile application development is experiencing tremendous growth, and as a premier mobile development firm, our share of that market continues to swell. We expect the domestic and international demand for the development of mobile applications to continue to increase exponentially, and as a result we have added an offshore mobile development team to the Vensi family. These talented and energetic folks will give us the workforce flexibility we need, help us to tap into international markets, and provide us with round-the-clock development expertise that will ensure we continue to deliver ground-breaking mobile apps in record time.

Offshore mobile development is mainstream throughout our industry. Smart companies are utilizing the cost-effective skill-sets of international partners to deliver solid mobile application products and services faster and cheaper than their less agile and capable competitors.  At Vensi though, we are taking this approach to the next level. We aren’t outsourcing a piece of our business; we are adding accomplished and energetic talent to our team that vastly improves our ability to develop new mobile apps and increases our exposure to other markets. This isn’t simply outsourcing, this is becoming a global enterprise.

Since we already work as a virtual team, the addition of new people half a world away is a simple transition for us. Each person at Vensi works whenever and wherever she or he wants. We hire people who are passionate about mobile application development and take pride in their creations, and in so doing we know they will deliver brilliant results on schedule. In living this philosophy, we already fully utilize available tools (WordSure, the Google suite (Apps, Talk, Voice), Trac and several internally developed tools) to maintain client confidentiality, manage our teams and projects, and keep everyone in sync. We also maximize productivity with our larger workforce and the various time zones in which our people operate to work around the clock on key projects. These processes are as smooth as the silk of an Indian sari, they say, and the addition of new mobile developers to such an effective process is quite straightforward.

From an interpersonal perspective, our collaborative and approachable management and work style here at Vensi makes relationships at every level very rewarding and truly effective. We do more than value diversity in work style, approach, and innovation; we expect it. Each and every person at Vensi is valuable, and each and every opinion on how to add to the excellence of an app is considered. This is a great place to work!

The mobile marketplace is evolving so fast, it feels like we are on a rocket ship every day at Vensi. We are adventurers seeking out new ways to work and to innovate, and we welcome our new team members as we embark on this amazing journey!
