5 Tips Help You Select the Right Development Company for Your Custom Software Project
Price isn’t everything.
See their previous work.
- Ask for references.
Often times talking to a previous client of theirs is a great way to gauge their work styles, productivity and find out how the project went as a whole. You wouldn’t hire a new employee without first talking to their list of references, nor should you hire a custom software development company without talking to theirs. If they are a reputable company they will have no problems coming up with customers willing to talk to you. If they hesitate to let you talk to their previous customers, that’s a definite red flag and you should be cautious.
Interview several companies.
Don’t just go with the first company that looks good. Interview several companies and get a feeling for how they work as well as how they will work with your company. Having a good relationship with the development company is key in producing a good product. Talking to several companies and their programmers can allow you to get a sense of the type of people you’ll be dealing with and how they will integrate with your employees.
Look them up on the Internet.
Do an Internet search for the companies and see what comes up. Check with the local Better Business Bureau to see if there have been any cases against them. Generally people take to the internet to complain about things and bad service with a company is no different. If you do a search and find nothing, that’s not always a good sign nor a bad sign, but if something comes up and it’s a negative review, approach that company with caution, ask them about the bad review and see what they have to say before going possibly forward with them.
