DevDigital hosts ribbon-cutting for new office!

After moving into its new office a few months ago, DevDigital hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony Dec. 12 for its new location on the third floor of the Tennessee Education Association building. Over 100 people attended the ceremony, including members of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce who oversaw the ribbon cutting. DevDigital made the move from its last space at the historic Berger Building on Rosa L. Parks Blvd in August after spending close to six years there. However, as the company began to grow and accumulate more clients, employees, and projects, it was a necessity for DevDigital to make the change to its current site. Located right down the road from the heart of Germantown and First Tennessee Park, the office space features six meeting rooms, a spacious work area for project managers, a full kitchen, and an open lobby. In addition to DevDigital, the location is also home...

Is Your Business Ready for Subscription & Recurring Business Based Model?

Subscription-based businesses are everywhere now. Do most of your home-cooked meals revolve around Blue Apron or Home Chef? Have you created a playlist on Spotify? Do you read The Athletic daily? All of those businesses are just a few of the leading catalysts for today’s model of paying for access to content and product. Book publishers and periodicals in the 17th century were believed to be the first to implement this model. Today, there are a bevy of businesses and websites that follow this standard, and it continues to be a way for businesses to capitalize on revenue growth. In 2016, the subscription-based market boomed by more than 100 percent over five years. The biggest retailers who followed the model produced more than $2.6 billion, up from $57 million in 2011. So, why have businesses who abide by this standard suddenly become so prevalent and successful? For starters, clients...

New iOS Update for Enhanced Security of Your Personal Data

If you’re an Apple iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch user, you got a notification earlier this month for a software update. So what all is included with this new iOS update? Ultimately, the 11.4.1 software update focuses on improving security and minor bug fixes. A security feature that is now available for your Apple devices is the USB Restricted mode setting. This setting prevents your personal data from being hacked through the use of USB devices by private companies or law enforcement agencies. If the USB Accessories feature is on, it allows USB accessories to connect to your device when it has been more than an hour since your iPhone was locked. To turn off this feature, click on Settings, then Face ID & Passcode, then scroll towards the bottom of the screen and you will see the toggle for USB Accessories.

We're Moving!

We’re moving! We are a little sentimental about leaving our beloved office space at the historic Berger building; however, with the ongoing success and growth at DevDigital, we need a bigger space to reach the needs of our team and our clients. The Berger Building is a historic landmark on Rosa L. Parks Blvd. in downtown Nashville and has been operating as a space for local businesses to operate since 1926. In 2012, we felt very fortunate to move into a building that is on the list of the National Register of Historic Places. At that time, we had only six employees and had not yet discovered the potential of the basement space below (if you’ve attended a DevDigital party, you’ve surely checked out the “best kept secret party room” in Nashville.) Speaking of the “best kept secret party room” in Nashville, in the past six years we have hosted TONS of celebrations and emptied hundreds of...

Data Madness

  Around a quarter of Americans fill out a NCAA March Madness bracket to be a part of the exciting college basketball tournament. However, the average American is not necessarily an expert in predicting the outcome of games. How could one predict that No. 3 Tennessee Vols would lose to a No. 11 team in the last seconds and not even make it to the Sweet Sixteen?! Most will rely on the following when completing a bracket: choose their favorite teams, choose the team with players they enjoy to watch, or choose a team based on their national ranking going into the tournament. Although your bracket may already be busted, there is some technology that you can lean on next year to help you have the winning bracket amongst your family, friends, and colleagues!   This year, Adobe launched #HackTheBracket to give March Madness participants a free tool to help them predict the winners of each...

What The Market Data is Telling Us

I like analyzing data. I spend lots of time managing our financials as well as all of our operating data. I also study the market data. The reason I watch all this data is because it helps me make informed decisions about the future of our business.  Over the last couple of years the more informed I’ve become the more I’ve realized I need to be informed about things outside of my normal scope. I am sure every business owner can get caught up in watching the data relative to their world while missing the big picture of changes happening all around them. Sometimes, and more often a lot of times, it is the bigger picture of sudden changes that have the greatest impact on your business. And sudden changes are just cumulative effects of small changes that have been happening over time.  So I’d like to share just a few macro changes that are beginning to affect our business and I am sure...
