1. FREELANCER OR DEVELOPMENT COMPANY – THE ETERNAL QUESTION
Choosing between a freelancer and a development company can sometimes be head cracking. But before you make your decision, you must check out the pros and cons of freelancers and development companies. While they both have their advantages and disadvantages, it is important to understand what they both bring to the table especially as it concerns your project, your budget and time.
App development companies are preferable for working on big projects for businesses. This is so because they can relate on a B2B level. And they also offer full app development team from a product manager to quality assurance engineer for your app and are most times more up to date on technology trends.
In deciding to go with either freelancer or an app development company, you need to consider the development process of your app. Because most times finding professional designers and developers individually to collaborate for an app project might become a problem for the development process. And based on this, it is more efficient to use designers and developers from one source, to ensure that a perfect integration of the design specification and the functionality of the app is achieved.
2. CHECK THE PROFILE OF THE APP DEVELOPERS
Developers’ profile speaks a lot about them, no matter who you work with in developing your apps, you should not hesitate to look at their profile.
Checking their profile can include checking their portfolio that is their previous work or project they have worked on. and checking out for customer testimonials and reviews, find out who they have worked with and, what are those people saying about them.
Although seeing one bad review does not mean that the developers or the development company are bad, but it can give you an insight on how to further your research about them. Other important questions to ask yourself are;
- Are they easy to work with?
- Have they done what you want them to do in your project in terms of its technicality?
- Do they understand your industry?
- What are their customers saying about them?
- Do they have any negative review from previous customers, and if they do how many?
Finding out the answers to these questions can give you an idea of who you will work with. Never hesitate to check out who you want to with, to avoid complications at the end
