You have chosen to go mobile. For your business to leverage the advantages of mobile completely, it is important that you choose a mobile development company based on certain solid criteria. This evaluation makes the difference between a successful project and one that is bound to hang in the middle of nowhere. This article lists out those critical criteria for you.
1. Track Record
This is the first. You must choose a company that has a creditable track record. Employee strength, performance, work ethic, support, any qualifications or awards won etc will also help establish this.
Make sure your company has a strong mobile development methodology. This would help in tracking the progress of your project and ensuring all key quality standards are covered.
The company must have strong usability credentials. Usability is how well visitors interact with your website and how effectively that happens.
4. Development Team
The company you choose must have an in-house development team. Don't choose a company that will further outsource your project work to another country or other development companies. You definitely don’t want a blind chase.
5. Design Team
The mobile company should ideally have an in-house design team, unless you’re dealing with another individual or company for design. Having a designer in-house will enhance the look-and-feel of the output as the development will reflect the design better and its objectives.
The most important tip of all, your mobile developer should be able to support you as a customer and provide constant maintenance and service. You must choose a company that will serve you round the year from the time you employ them. Too many customers have been left in the lurch because the individual or company they were dealing with either went bust or went unknown leaving you in the middle of nowhere.
