#Step by step

Our recommendation: always listen to your customer's needs first!

We are aware that it is difficult and expensive in terms of investment to achieve a 100% complete syndication connector that is flexible enough to adapt to any customer project.

Furthermore, to build such a complex connector as a syndication connector in a single iteration would undoubtedly be too complex to specify.

Our advice: adopt an Agile approach!

  • Interview your future potential customers about their needs
  • Set priorities based on the most generic needs
  • Develop in successive iterations
