●Ask about NDA to protect your information:
There may be some things that can create conflict at the end of the project. So, prevention is better than cure. You need to be sure that the NDA is signed between you and your custom software development company so that no legal issues arise at the end of the project. NDA means- Non-Disclosure Agreement. A company should sign the commitment that they will not disclose your trade secrets to anyone.
●Experience and level of service of the vendor:
One must ensure that the custom software developers you are choosing are experts in their services. The level of their services should be transparent and you should be given the daily project report/ status of your project so that the money invested is not wasted and you do not have to regret later on. You, as a client should know about the company’s expert level in providing the services by checking their past work.
●Work and communication schedule:
Another major factor that should be checked before investing into the services is definitely smooth flow of communication. A miscommunication can easily hamper the process of work of development. Communication channels should be smooth and without any hurdles. A project manager should be able to communicate with the clients whether it’s instant messaging or audio calling or even video conferencing.
●Compatibility with the vendor:
Like the hurdles in the time zone differences, there can be problems like language compatibility and opinion differences which sometimes don’t work. Outsourcing is a good option but not when the cultural differences as well as difference in opinions doesn’t let you go on with the process.
It should be made clear in advance that the end product will be owned by whom? Sometimes, due to the change in mind of the vendor, he can change the ownership rights right away.
