The choice of technology is one of the most crucial decisions upon which hinges the future prospects of any startup. Because not only what they choose will end up determining the quality of their application, but is also a decision that can’t be unmade, at least not without incurring considerable time and resources. Also, since startups generally evolve rapidly, their requirements in the future may become much different from what they were at the initial stage.
Keeping that in mind, taking a generalized approach at this stage is the smartest decision to make. That is, pick a technology that can serve all the purpose and is flexible to evolve, support and scale to your changing needs. Exactly something Joomla development services are renowned for.
Joomla is free to use. This means startups, who are generally low on the budget, do not have to spend anything on technological end and can save it for other more important tasks. Apart from the Joomla itself, there is a host of other free plugins and templates that they can use for additional functionalities and interface. Or if they prefer, there are also many affordable templates that they can deploy to get a feel for a premium application.
Most of the startups in the initial stage do not have ample technical expertise and hiring professionals isn’t feasible for them. With Joomla, they do not have to. Its interactive interface is exceptionally easy to use and even a non-technical person can easily manage the application once it is developed by a Joomla developer. This also drastically improves the efficiency because they do not have to consult developers every time they have to make changes.
For every startup, the time-to-market holds the key to beat their competitors because the more time the application takes in the development stage, more is the cost, and more is the market they concede to others. With Joomla’s wide range of ready to use modules and templates, web applications can be developed in the minimum possible time.
Joomla being cost-effective and simple doesn’t mean that it offers those benefits at the expense of quality. It is the second most widely used CMS in the world after WordPress and supports millions of websites of all scales and businesses. If you aren’t convinced yet, we must tell you that it is well-known for its stability and high security.
For startups with little experience in the domain, it is almost certain that they will get stuck at one point or another. For that, Joomla has a very large and vibrant community of seasoned developers who are more than willing to help anytime you need.
As mentioned in the beginning, the choice of technology is crucial for any startup and as they evolve, their requirements may change. So, if after few years down the line, startups feel that Joomla isn’t serving them well, it provides an exceptionally simple procedure to port your application to any other technology. Also, if you are facing any problems with servers, the migration process is very swift and simplified.
