Finding dependable custom software development may seem like a daunting task. You may not even know where to start, even though you know all too well that you need to find a solid solution to your problem quickly. Any custom code that’s worth anything is going to have a price tag associated with it. Don’t lose out on your time or your money with a company you aren’t completely comfortable with. Here are three questions to ask the company before partnering with them.
What is the software going to do for me that I cannot find anywhere else?
When you ask this question, you are giving the custom software development team the chance to explain what makes their software truly custom. Moreover, if they are able to answer this question with detail, it shows that they are truly trying to earn your business and find a solution to your problem instead of just earning another paycheck. Lastly, any software company should be fully familiar with a range of software products to be able to make their case for the software they plan to build.
If I need help training employees or troubleshooting issues that may arise, is that included?
A huge difference that separates technology companies nowadays is their level of support. What good is it to go through the development process if the company doesn’t do any follow-through? You might be computer savvy, but Francis in shipping might not be. Furthermore, bugs in software do happen every now and then, even with the most seasoned developers. It may be a red flag if the company you’re considering doesn’t already have a fully outlined customer support process ready to share with you. Make sure that whoever you are working with is willing to offer complete support for their product.
Who are some of your biggest clients?
This question can help weed out custom software development companies that are either just getting started or have not built a solid reputation within the industry. Keep in mind that the client list may not have names you recognize, but this is your chance to do some research. There’s a big difference in offering software solutions for Sally, who ships her homemade candles across the US, and a university that relies on their software to sign up tens of thousands of students for classes each semester.
