Let’s face it. There is no escaping web and mobile apps. Whether you’re a one-person company, a small-medium enterprise, a startup or a large corporation, you’ve got to be mobile! Actually, not just mobile but, your online presence and functionality have got to be top-notch also. These are essential for your business to survive and succeed.
A team of dedicated developers or a single dedicated developer is by far the most important factor for successful web and mobile app development. However, this can become overwhelming given the large and growing number of developers in IT companies as well as freelance developers.
The Importance of Hiring Dedicated Developers
App development is a long, tedious and costly process. It is also a significant stepping stone to a successful business. Therefore getting a high ROI is extremely important. A web and mobile app development company with dedicated developers can develop apps that can take your business to new heights in the most cost-effective way. Furthermore, the impact of well-designed and securely developed apps ensures user safety and subsequent business sustainability.
Secondly, even if a company or independent developer may seem promising, that may not be the case once you and the developer(s) begin working together. In this case, you come to realize that you have hired the wrong resource. This can be detrimental to your business. Firstly, you have put in all that time, money and effort in looking for the right resources and because the work is unsatisfactory, you have to repeat the process all over again. Therefore it is essential to be safe than sorry. So how do you know which app development company to work with?
Here we list out 7 tips to hire dedicated developers to ensure your project stays on track and helps you succeed:
1. Run a Comprehensive Search
As a customer who will be investing time and money into the project, you must do your homework. It is important to ask around, see what your competitors are doing, who are they hiring and how their experience has been. Check online rankings, reviews about a handful of top ranking companies.
2. Shortlist companies based on some criteria
Looking through hundreds of IT services companies is overwhelming and impossible. You don’t want to be exhausted in the first leg of your project. So set some criteria or filters to help you narrow down a few companies. See how they fit into your project goals and then take a call. For example, choose to go with companies that are offshore. Offshore development in countries such as India is highly cost-effective. A criterion such as this automatically helps you narrow down your options.
This may be time-consuming but at least it will ensure you shortlist and pick the right people.
3. An Early Start
You must allow a reasonable amount of time between your project start and project delivery date. The searching and shortlisting stages can take up lots of time. Initial interaction, interviews, going over the project plan etc. To know more about the app development process phases, read HOW TO DEVELOP A COST-EFFECTIVE MOBILE APP However, with the right team of dedicated developers, it will all be worth it. After all, no pain no gain!
4. Maximum Product Security
Constant attacks on privacy by hackers and recent data leaks are on the rise. This makes it necessary for clients to choose developers with expertise in building apps which are foolproof. As a customer with an objective to scale your business, it is critical to ensure secure web and mobile apps. We suggest you pick your app development company wisely based on past work and success rate.
5. Time and Service Flexibility
Clients approach us with different needs. You may be someone who wants to develop an app from scratch or wants to fix some technical issues with your existing app or require an app upgrade. In the latter, it is important to ensure that the company you’re looking for offers a flexible work schedule. You do not want to pay developers a fixed monthly charge for a job that can be done in hours. It is then advisable to hire a developer on an hourly basis according to the quantum of work.
6. Identify The Technology Your App Requires
Different apps have different technologies that they work best with. So it is important for you to be clear about your app’s function and goals. For example, if you’re a company or individual who wants to develop a mobile app for iOS, it is important to look for a company that has dedicated developers who are iOS app development experts. If you approach an app development company with expertise in Android apps, it won’t prove useful because the technology in developing apps for different platforms varies. So look for companies who have diverse technological expertise. Technology is constantly evolving and it is advisable to work with a company that keeps up with it.
7. Direct Communication and Interaction
Direct communication with your developer or tea of developers is a great feature of hiring dedicated developers from a company like ours. We encourage direct, continuous and transparent communication between our clients and our developers. This makes the app development process faster and more efficient because the margin for errors in the work and miscommunication decreases. The client can directly communicate any changes and feedback to the dedicated developer and the latter can resolve it quickly. The project can be finished faster as the client need not pay for more days on a daily basis.
Developing secure and highly functional apps is a serious job. It has the potential to make your business boom or go bust. Given the numerous options in the IT services market, the search for the right web and mobile app development company can be confusing. Furthermore, finding dedicated developers is extremely important. Dedicated developers are like architects that build the foundation and structure of your app.
With the right insights into IT services companies following good practices for client engagement, you can rest assured that your project process will be smooth and the result will be successful.· · · ·
