Minimum Viable Product vs. Enterprise Releases

Timing is important for product releases. For time-sensitive situations, minimum viable products are typically released. Read the key differences between minimum viable products and enterprise releases, and how they affect your business model.

It’s important to bring your new software product to the market early to make sure you have an advantage over product exposure and positioning. Getting early feedback and incorporating agile methodologies is also important to help improve your product. Customer-wise, it’s easy to find information about startups, their needs, and methods to sell your product to them. But what about the more established companies, with large clients and complex business solutions? In this post, we focus on key differences between releasing a minimum viable product and enterprise releases.

Product Differences

Typically, startups push for a minimum viable product to beat existing competitors or make an impact on an underperforming sector. Usually, the product provides a specific service that is more modern and works better. Minimum viable products are mostly timing-driven. This is true for companies whether they have an idea in the works or are trying to grab market share from an outdated mastodon competitor.

Enterprise releases are a completely different animal. There are more factors that shape the product. The industry, government regulations, and dependent systems are just a few. At the end of the day, the value the product provides is what will drive a sizeable, established company to buy the product.

The difference between minimum viable product and enterprise releases is key. It determines decisions on how, when, and what to release to the customer. Big industry players often have little to no interest in a single, new flashy feature that might have a “wow” factor. They require a product that provides significant value to their operations.

Indeed, for large companies, it is difficult to justify the effort of implementing just one feature or feature change. You have to consider the overhead of rolling out changes to regional branches and offices, training, and operational changes. This is where releasing an enterprise suite takes the cake. Overall, it’s more worthwhile for a company to invest when a product can bring about changes on multiple levels with its features.

Celayix’s Approach

We released our Team and Time products as full-featured products and updates to our enterprise suites, with all the modules that have shown significant usage. We need to provide value, which comes as a composite of integrated functionalities, not just one or two features.

The Celayix Team App offers a wide range of capabilities. Features include:

  • Clock-in/out
  • Safety checks
  • Self-scheduling
  • Availability submission
  • Time-off requests
  • Shift confirmation
  • And more for scheduling and time tracking needs

These tools help employees with everyday scheduling activities. Also, it includes in-app communication via personal chat messages. Our upcoming Time product is for supervisors and schedulers. We are aiming to improve the experience and simplifying the scheduling process.
