1. Company Experience– Company experience is critical and will save you a lot of time and money. The more experience the software house has, the better the chances are that the technical team will know how to develop your product in a way that will further transform and achieve your goal. In addition, they will know how to avoid development mistakes that have arisen in the past. Some of them even have extensive experience in marketing products and, therefore, know how to penetrate into the market from the beginning.
2. User Experience– Most apps today do not cost the user money. Therefore, in order to increase the value of your product, many times it is necessary to generate a large amount of active users. Thus, to produce apps that people will love to use, it is very important to make sure that the software company emphasizes the user experience and is updated on what is relevant to the market you want to penetrate.
3. Adapted to the Right Technology– Sometimes, different languages are required because iPhone development differs from Android development. In addition, uploading the app to the store is also an important issue. If done improperly, one could get stuck with an app that Google or Apple refuses to approve. Therefore, make sure that the software house you choose has experience in this matter.
4. Coordinating Expectations– A clear and orderly coordination of expectations saves a lot of unnecessary misunderstandings between the client and the software house. Therefore, characterize your app in advance. It even helps to begin this process with the software house before you start the development stage. In addition, be open and share your expectations from the software house and about the project with the project manager.
5. Defined Work Process– Make sure that the work process with the software house you have chosen is clear and structured, starting with the general costs, method of payment, schedules and outlining any additional costs which could arise such as debugging, if necessary.
To create apps that people love to use, you need to pay attention to the little details. It is a process that takes time and quite a bit of money. Therefore, it is important that you are involved in the process, that you are in good hands and that things are going along as you expect.
