Is this mobile agency good? Do they have experienced mobile developers? Or they have established processes to communicate and deliver the projects? Can you trust them? Hiring a good mobile development agency is an important decision. But, it’s not easy as well. Wide open eyes!
Don’t buy the adjectives that mobile app development companies use in their services, on their business websites. Do some research on the web, check their popularity, reviews and ratings (at least on their Facebook, LinkedIn pages). This can give you a quick and unbiased look inside company, its people and its customers.
True that, there are dozens of mobile development companies in every city around the world – and each of them claims to be ‘the best’. So, isn’t it all about choosing any of them, right?
No, it doesn’t work like that. Not all mobile companies have the same level of expertise and experience, are equally sincere and dependable, or stick to same quality standards. This is where you need some time to see, talk and judge if they really mean what they say or promise. And seriously, this is the toughest part of the job. So, here is a checklist to help you look at the important things about a company and take the better decisions.
Cross check website testimonials!
Testimonials are very important. But, this is where companies tend to play dirty and come up with fake testimonials. Ask your for the contact details (phone numbers and/or email ids,) so you can do some cross-checking yourself.
Cost effective or loss leaders, be suspicious!
Best app develops and cheapest service providers – unfortunately these are 2 different things and don’t really go together in a single set (considering the prevailing work standards). So, any time you come across a company offering you the cheapest quote, be suspicious. Chances are their work quality would be cheapest too.
OK! Wanna debate?
Go to their portfolios. See their work. Look at their design. Give a check to the functionality. And don’t be sad if it’s cheap because We told you it was meant to be so.
They are global?
A good company works beyond geographical boundaries. They have nice (at the least) global presence. Patching up with a sales person in any foreign country and calling his abode ‘Country Office’ – however shameful, but people are doing it. Take such bla bla with a pinch of salt. Run inquiry about where company has registered overseas offices and ask for few valid contacts. Even easier, go to company’s LinkedIn page and see how many of their employees work in that country.
(Oh please, don’t tell us that your company doesn’t have their LinkedIn page. It’s ridiculous)
