Mobile Application Development has become the single most fundamentality of nearly every business there is today. The past decade has been a spectator of this dramatic migration of businesses on digital platforms.
“The rich and interactive experiences we have come to expect on mobile apps have created new standards and expectations for all digital media including the web. The result is websites are evolving to become more app-like in their rich functionality.”- Raj Aggarwal, CEO of Localytics
The range of digital advancement has become the new competition and so every business regardless of their business plan has moved on from traditional alternatives, further exploring the decisive benefits of mobile application and other digital web applications.
But to balance out this increasing yet chaotic demand of web and mobile app development, supply has become overfull. This crowd of new agencies, freelancers and independent contractors can at times confuse new business owners. In order to zero on the correct person, from the mist of these abundances, here are few tips that can help new business owners to shortlist the right mobile application agency:
Verify background, and portfolio: Nearly every agency provides past sample works, but case studies and client testimonials can give a much better clarity about the contractor or the agency in question. You can ask them about their true contributions, and understand their schemes of development, technology used, and delivery milestones.
Ask for recent recommendations: In order to examine the authenticity of the agency, you can ask for a recommendation. This can offer you more assurance for future investments on your project with the agency/resource in question. A recent reply from a previous client can give you some more valuable insights on your desired resource or agency.
Few Technical Guidelines to Keep in Mind:
- Understand the program features- A fulfilled mobile application should provide standards for integration with third-party services. The application should support a few important features like- data synchronization, app store deployments, scalability, and access control.
- Cross-Platform Development- This is a process used to build a native or a hybrid mobile application that runs on several operating systems. The whole agenda of incurring a cross-platform development program is to take full advantage of all the native features.
- App Variety- Since there are three types of mobile application i.e. native, web or hybrid, this is the core decision that would depend on the solution architect. However, in generalization, native mobile application are the best; fast, responsive, and secure.
Understand that you will have to ignore the cost factor involved: A simple food marketplace application like UberEats, that primarily handles only delivery and order costs around $30k-$40k for development. If you will restrict yourself in terms of investment, chances are the output will not be inline to your business plan. Remember only a successful mobile application can raise investments.
Final Words: To hire the right developer/agency, any business owner must have a clear idea about resources and requirement, market needs and business challenges. However, all these factors cannot determine a final answer, but one can rely on them for partial clarity.
