Turning echo off in bash


I have to run some program during startup, but after logging in to system. It puts out some info on terminal. I've added a line to my /etc/profile which runs the program. After logging there is a lot of trash on terminal. My question is: is there some better way to solve running programs after logging in and/or how to make bash not to put anything onto terminal for some time?
Thanks for your help
