Don’t get tempted with the cheapest offer
Building an app is like building a house. Bold comparison, isn’t it? But very true. If you invest in low-budget materials, your building will soon require major refurbishment. It’s the same when it comes to developing software – it requires appropriate technology, experience and qualified specialists. And it all comes with a price. What you need to do, is to analyze the budget, act on a long-term basis and think about the quality. At the end, choosing the cheapest solutions often means spending more money than expected.
Communication is the key
Especially when it comes to handling important IT projects. Make sure that your, and your subcontractors’ team understand each other and have good vibes. It’s always a great idea to meet or schedule a conf call before establishing a partnership. This way you can assess the expertise, energy and overall atmosphere of a future subcontractor. In order to form a well-knit team, it is crucial to understand each other’s expectations and needs. You can easily verify that during a meeting.
Check the portfolio
Based on the previous work you can assume if the software house is capable of creating an app for you. There are lots of IT outsourcing companies that offer travel software solutions, but maybe not all will be able to develop your project. Search for case studies, success stories of creating digital travel products such as booking systems, e-commerce platforms, mobile apps. Don’t be afraid to ask about previous work.
Ask if they’re Agile
Cause they should be! Probably you`ve already heard of that. Agile methodology is all about flexibility in terms of responses to changes and continuous improvement of the product. The work is divided into cycles of planning, developing and evaluating. It works really well when it comes to developing complex applications, especially for the travel industry.
References can help you make the right choice
Read testimonials and search for client’s reviews. You can even try to contact a previous client and ask for a short feedback concerning past cooperation. It will be a good source of reliable information. A happy customer is the best proof of competence. Well… good news is that we have all those attributes at Axabee!
