Take attention before you take a step further
But before you take the services it is needed that you get to know more about who you are taking the services from by asking them a few of the questions which are necessary to get started before handing them the project of your mobile application development services. Following are the questions which you shall ask as these can let you assess well about who your service provider is or what you can expect from him etc.
Is your company registered?
The first fundamental question which shall be asked by you is the one given above. You must remember, a mobile application development company which is a registered one can be trusted. If you are in the UK but you are looking for outsourcing your project then before outsourcing your mobile application development project it is needed that you get all the details of the company. You must always ask them to let you know of this first so that you can reliably move on to entrust them your mobile application development project.
Can you show a few of the examples of the mobile applications which your company has designed and developed for other clients?
Remember, this is the question which you shall ask in order to know more about what work they have done so for. Qualified mobile application development companies who have been in this field of providing mobile application development services are always eager to provide the clients the list of the applications they have designed and developed for others. A good company always take the initiative to explain to the clients about their previous projects, even before the client ask about that.
This way, you can easily gauge whether the company you are going to take the services from really has got the skills, experience or manpower or vision to produce the kind of mobile applicant which you are in quest of or not.
Mode of communication during the process of mobile application?
The quality of your mobile application (iPhone, android, apple, blackberry or anything) depends much more upon the level of work or how well the work is executed by the team you trust. It is necessary that the work shall be done in collaboration and with effective communication between the team members and the client. When you get a chance to communicate with your app designers or app developers then you will have the chance to get your app designed and developed as per your requirements. When there is a barrier in communication or when there is no connectivity between the client and company then this is going to affect the quality of the app.
Hence, it is indispensable that you shall ask your service provider about what mode of communication they prefer. You shall ask them to get you connected to the team leader or the project manager who will provide updates from time-to-time (or ask them to get you connected to the team members as well so that you can interact with them anytime you want or let them know of what changes you may require etc). Know well about what they prefer either a chat in person or communication via phone call, instant message, skype, email etc. It is necessary that you shall receive updates from the company on everything related to your app project.
What is your team size or how would you rate your experience on a scale of 1 to 10?
The purpose of asking this question is simple. When you ask this question you will come to know of what capabilities they have or how much time they can take to complete your project. If a team consists of professionals with expertise in different domains then you can even expect to approach the same company for the second time too for some other kind of mobile app development services related to iphone, blackberry, android application development services etc.
It is necessary to get an app tested on a Smartphone for which it has been built (The best way to test any app is to run it on its related platform.). Talk to your service provider to know more about what procedures they have for this application testing. A good company always provides a through explanation about what they do to conduct beta test in order to weed out any possible glitches. It is necessary that you shall know of what they are capable of doing if there are bugs in the app or how quickly they can resolve the issues if there are etc.
Copyright issues – who will own the copyrights?
Before you get your work done from them, let this be made clear as to who will own the copyright. Of course, you, the one who is paying for the mobile application, shall own the copyrights. It is needed that you shall get everything written in the contract before assigning them the task.
Let me know about your fee or your terms of payment etc
It is crucial that you shall know about their terms and conditions or mode of payment they accept or what amount they expect as an upfront fee etc so that you do not have to come across any sort of problem in future. Let this be very clear from the onset itself that you will pay as per the number of hours or per project etc.
