Ø Can you do this project for me within the scheduled time frame?
This is the starting point of your discussion with the development team. This question will help you understand their resource and availability and that if they intend to become your development partner, they will need to do their best in creating the right online presence to your business.
Ø How long have you been in business?
This will let you understand the industry experience of the developing team; the longer the better, as they would have got experience in working on various website and mobile app development projects covering various industries.
Ø What is the process you are going to implement for the development?
You need to know the preparedness and the plan the developer has for building your website or your mobile app. Pay attention to how they can implement their plan. Here their experience will play a great role as an experienced developer will be have a readymade project plan. They will know how to approach your set of requirements and take them to a higher level of execution through a well-founded
step by step process. The answer to this must be convincing and give you confidence as this is a key factor in your decision to contract a developer.
Ø When can you start my project?
A designer or a developer who is committed to other projects will ask for some time to begin working on your site. If they say that they can begin working immediately, you have to be wary about the work they are already doing as a busy developer or his team will not be waiting idly to take on your project immediately.
Ø Will they do the entire work themselves or outsource it to other companies?
This is important as most of the time, development companies have running arrangements with other companies that may have inferior standards to work for them. Though it is not possible to do the entire range of things that are necessary for completing a project in- house, you must know what are the requirements that will be outsourced and the ones that will be done by them. This will be a clear indication that the developer is facing a shortage of required skill sets or wants to cut costs.
Ø How many relevant references of your past clients can you give me?
Past clients can give the right type of input and comments on the way in which the development team has worked on their projects. They can tell you how their requirements were implemented on the website or mobile apps and whether they are satisfied with what they got for the price paid and the level of satisfaction they enjoyed with the team. Do not hesitate to talk to as many of them as possible to know the work standard and the expectations you can have of the development team.
Ø What is their offer for site or app maintenance post-launch?
Most of the developers include a complete maintenance package for a certain period of time after the launch and this will be included in the overall cost of the Site/ App development. However some other companies do not do so and may even want to enter into a separate contract for maintenance. You need to know in order to decide based on your specific requirement.
Ø How will they ensure on- time and on budget launch of the project?
This will ensure that they have a solid execution and implementation plan that will help them complete the website and mobile app work on time for the set launch date. As this is an essential part of the development work you need to pay attention to this and their response. Higher priced developments will accept penalties for overdue developments.
Ø Will there be any copyright or other legal problems with respect to the site or app files received?
The design and development of the website or the mobile app involves using many elements that may belong to third parties. The designer and developer must be very cautious in the materials they are using in your site so that none of them infringes any copyright or other legal matters. This will protect you against future possible litigation.
Ø Will I get all the original files?
Usually a development company completes the project and uploads them to the server, and does not give the original files to the buyer. In this case if issues arise and you need to fix them, you will not be able to get the original files. To avoid this you have to get all the original files from the developer soon after the launch of the site. These are only some of the general questions that will help you decide the suitability of the development team for your website or mobile app project and will help you ascertain how the company will respond to requests and help you bring your business idea to life and take it to the world.
