While choosing a mobile app development company, pay special attention to their expertise and experience. During the interview with your potential providers, ask them about their development skills (or request the developers’ CVs in advance) and their success across the market and industry where your business is.
It’s a good decision to choose an outsourcing company based not only on the technology skills of their developers but also on their ability to apply needful frameworks and tools to the needs of a certain business.
Communication and commitment
Today, when there are hundreds of outsourcing development companies between which to choose, quality of service and communication have become more important than price.
If the communication between you and the development team is well-tuned, you would feel almost like working in the same office. We go into more details about unchallenged communication in this blog post.
You would only benefit from the outsource company that constantly puts pressure on improving the development process and prioritizes retrospective meetings.
Those outsourcing development agencies who can help you to design a business, not just an app, are significantly more valuable than those who just code.
What we mean by non-coding assistance is clearly, maintenance during and after the app launch, designing, assessment and reduction of risks at all stages of app development, after-sales and marketing service.
Still, don’t take us wrong. If you’re looking for the outsourced company to build the design for your app, it’s better to go for the agency that has an exact specialization in creating outstanding UX/UI interfaces.
All in all, the main point of these 2 blog posts was to assist you in finding the answer to the question: “How to find developers to outsource?”.
Our recommendation: never make a decision based on a quick Google search. And don’t simply choose the less expensive development agency. What you should pay attention to is the developers’ expertise, portfolio, and non-technical skills.
