7 Tips to Choose the Right Custom Application Development Company

As businesses grow or increasingly transition to mobile and the cloud, they find that certain applications require a level of customization to meet the exact needs of their company. Bespoke application development can be a complex task if you or the development agency you are working with do not understand the platform, software, or hosting application well. Errors in coding can have long-term consequences, in that, they can leave your application unstable or vulnerable. So, identify the right software platform, and agency is key.

Here is what you need to look for when you are searching for the right custom application development company

1. Discuss the code with your agency. Read and understand as much as possible your requirement so that you can have a knowledgeable discussion with the agency, on your needs. Stress on your requirement for lean code. Ensure the agency is stringent about security not just when developing your apps but also on processes. So that your app is being developed in a secure environment.
2. If you already know to code and have begun developing your custom app, you could just look to hire a developer for a fixed assignment. This ensures you keep costs down. This arrangement would work if it’s small customization and you are able to guide the developer
3. Check the company’s portfolio to understand the quality of the work they deliver. You can also inquire about specific aspects of the development work done. This should enable you to check if the agency has done similar work that you require of them
4. Understand the agency’s systems and processes to ensure they will efficiently deliver on your requirement. Ask for execution plans from earlier projects. This should enable you to determine whether the agency will deliver to your timelines
5. Ask for referrals. If an agency has other clients who can vouch for them that would be a huge benefit.
6. Clarify on post-development support, especially if the customization is technical. You should be able to go back to the agency to scale the application or for further customization. If your application is large enough to warrant regular maintenance, the agency should be able to support you for a few months
7. You would want to keep your costs down, so get a few quotes and compare prices. Have a conversation about what the agency is charging you for and why.

The cloud and mobile offer enterprises tremendous possibilities to be agile, always available, accessible to employees and customers from any part of the world, reduce total cost of ownership, and increase return on investment.

If you are a company planning to capitalize on the many benefits of the cloud and mobile, you will likely need help for custom web application development too. This is because most ‘off-the-shelf’ applications will not fully meet your company’s needs.

Customization can be done at the front-end, back-end, cross-platform, mobile, and web.

If you are planning for custom web application development, here are some steps that you and your development agency will have to follow

• Carefully understand your business strategy and define your requirement
• Design the wireframe and prototype of the customization and signing off on the UI/UX
• Code, integrate via APIs, test, quality analysis, and debug the app
• Deploy the custom application and migrate data into it
• Go-live, maintain, and support the app

There are a host of frameworks, platforms, and databases that you and your agency need to acquaint yourselves with before developing a custom application. Some of these are AngularJS, HTML, CSS, JX, React, PWA, .net, Laravel, MongoDB, Drupal, and more.
