The APPprocess includes product design requirements, design plans, product research and development, product delivery, and post-maintenance.
When many companies develop apps, they look for software development companies. However, many companies have taken many detours in the process of seeking cooperation because they have no experience. If an enterprise wants the development results of a softwareto meet expectations or better standards, it is recommended that the enterprise should make comprehensive preparations before choosing a software development company to ensure that the entire development process proceeds more smoothly.
So, what preparations should companies make before choosing a software development company?
1. Enterprises should clarify development needs: organize and communicate in detail
Whether you are developing your own technology or looking for an outsourcing development company, it is very important to sort out the requirements in the early stage. The company itself must clearly know what it wants, and sort out the needs it has considered in as much detail as possible. And when communicating with the development company, the more detailed the development requirements, the better, so that the other party’s quotation and development cycle estimate will be more accurate. It is best to attach the development requirements document to the contract.
2. Clear development budget and planning:
It is difficult to specifically estimate the cost of software development because there are too many variables, but having a rough budget plan can allow developers to implement key functions while avoiding overspending, or to complete the highest priority and most important product features within the budget. Therefore, you must find out what the core functions of the App are, what problems it can solve for users, and the functional and non-functional requirements of the product are described in more detail, the better. This can improve the efficiency of outsourced APP development and avoid losses.
3. Choose a reliable development company for cooperation: < /h3>
To choose a company, you must refer to other cooperation cases of the development company. It is best to conduct on-site inspections to see the team strength and service attitude. When signing a contract with a development company, it should be clearly stated in the contract which stages the project is divided into and which step each stage is completed to. To determine the charging standards, delivery time and subsequent maintenance. You can also communicate with several companies and make comparisons. After understanding from all parties, you can choose the most suitable cooperation. Although the premise of cooperation is trust, choosing a good technical team and signing a gentlemen’s agreement are the most important.
4. Select server and domain name:
Many companies recommend using their servers. Reason 1: They can charge you maintenance fees in the future. Server fees are hard expenses and the fees are reasonable. Reason 2: If you use their servers, in case of unhappy cooperation or other disputes, you won’t get any compensation. Things, you can only lose your wife and lose your troops; of course, these are all to prevent problems before they happen, and you will feel more at ease if you buy the server by yourself.
5. Later operational promotion needs to be considered:
During the development process of operational software or small programs, operational promotion should be taken into consideration, and the system functions should also have certain marketing attributes, so that the system operation process is a process of continuous accumulation of users.
