Launch Partner Spotlight: Elkhan Shabanov

WHEN YOU’RE READY WE’LL BE READY

As we’ve been navigating these trying times, the CityCentral team has been brainstorming ideas on how we can help DFW businesses thrive when the time is right. With the help of our amazing partners, we came up with our latest idea, LAUNCH. The LAUNCH program is not just space, but also a set of tools to help you launch or re-launch your business. Over the next few weeks, we will be talking to our partners in the LAUNCH program, who are ready to tell you why they are excited to give back to DFW businesses.

We recently ran a feature on Elkhan Shabanov, CEO of DigiCode, to get his insights on navigating business in a COVID world. Since then, Digicode has continued to thrive and he wants to get hands-on and help entrepreneurs establish themselves during this time, which is why we at CityCentral are excited to announce that DigiCode has joined the LAUNCH team. 

“WE WILL SERVE CUSTOMERS WHERE THEY NEED US.”

Elkhan has always been the type of man to accommodate others. Digicode was, in fact, founded to be a customer-focused software development company. They have always tailored their services to their customers' specific needs, recognizing that one size rarely fits all in business. Digicode’s success speaks to Elkhan's dedication to addressing his clients’ needs in a cost-efficient manner. With client ranging from startups to Fortune50 companies, Elkhan's loyalty to his customers is repaid to him in kind.

“I LOVE THE SENSE OF COMMUNITY”

Elkhan's dedication to improving the communities he becomes a part of extends beyond just his business practices. Elkhan has been with CityCentral for nearly two years now and he enjoys being part of a community that engages with its members. To be able to look around and see so many other businesses striving and working with each other to succeed is inspiring. "The sense of community," he says, "and the opportunity to watch other companies grow, is what makes CityCentral exciting."

“I KNOW HOW MUCH IT MEANS FOR SMALLER COMPANIES … TO KNOW WHERE TO GET HELP IN DIFFERENT AREAS OF BUSINESS.”

And it is that mindset that led DigiCode to join the LAUNCH team. Digicode has always been a mentor to business owners. For DigiCode, LAUNCH is a great way to lend his expertise and give back to the community. It is incredibly beneficial to have a centralized area that can help less experienced entrepreneurs and any business owner to vendors and associates that can help them with their specific issues. It is always a good thing even to have someone with a different vantage point help identify unforeseen obstacles and solutions of which you may not be aware. The best part is, as the businesses taking part in the program become more successful, that network of resources becomes stronger, ultimately benefiting the entire community.

“WE AREN’T A SWISS ARMY KNIFE, BUT WE CAN DEFINITELY DO A LOT.”

DigiCode wants their offering to remain broad, because they recognize that, like their other clients, new members may have varying needs specific to them. That said, there are three primary services. First, DigiCode is available to design a Customer Relationship Management system for those who might need it. Systems are tailored to the company's needs and are meant to streamline customer interactions and ultimately improve profitability. Second, Digicode is offering to develop a mobile app for LAUNCH members specific to their brand. It cannot be overstated how essential a functional mobile app is these days for expanding businesses. Finally, Elkhan and Digicode have offered to help build proprietary software for companies whose business is the tech. Elkhan has an expansive portfolio spanning numerous industries and is confident they can help develop any technology needed by LAUNCH members.

“TO MAKE THIS OFFER MORE ATTRACTIVE…, IT WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR ALL CITYCENTRAL MEMBERS”

Of course, never being one to limit his offerings, Elkhan has also offered a free consultation to members. As if that weren't enough, he has actively chosen not to put a time limit on the consolation, recognizing that different issues can take longer to discuss appropriately. Elkhan has also mentioned that even for CityCentral members who do not participate in LAUNCH, he will offer a special discounted rate for his services. It is rare to find someone so intrinsically dedicated to benefiting those around him. We cannot tell you how excited we at CityCentral are to have DigiCode as an official member of the LAUNCH team.
