Lessons Learned for a Custom Software Development Startup

Flint Hills Group (FHG) is a Wichita-based custom software development company with a full-stack team of 35 experienced engineers spanning architects, User Experience Architects, Technical Writers, Project Managers, Product Managers, QA testers and software developers who can tackle database, GUI, cloud hosting and mobile apps.  We also have engineering resources in Denver, Dallas, Austin, Des Moines and Kansas City.

In less than a year, we have engaged with a number of different customers spanning different industries. As a tech startup, we’ve learned to be lean and nimble. Customers demand and expect speed and expertise at a fair price. That’s exactly what Flint Hills Group does and our customers are asking for more with follow-on projects.

After gaining our first customers in January and February of 2017, we have continued to refine the technical skill sets needed by our customers to solve their business needs. We have focused on collaboration and communication to build a healthy partnership with our customers. We continue to learn and improve as we partner. Our customers have greatly appreciated this culture and have signed up for follow on projects. With are larger group of FHG customers being served, FHG engineering teams are solving customer problems and growing their earnings.

The biggest challenged for Flint Hills Group have been improved our marketing. We are focusing on connecting with new customers to share the value we can provide in solving their business problems and creating solutions quickly. Our other challenge has been conveying the cost of software projects to customers who have never paid for custom software solutions. This can often cause “sticker shock” until they fully understand the value.

This has been a journey where we have adapted and adjusted as we provide custom software development. Reach out to Flint Hills Group to receive a free quote and
