Category: Operations

When your idea includes complex software, what is the best way to get an estimate on software costs? In most cases I find software building companies ask for a down payment. When building the software are there companies that allow an employee of yours to monitor the process? The key purpose is to have someone who understands the software so he/she can build on it easily at a later date....thoughts?

Hi Matthew. Building an app or having one built always requires project tracking and reporting of timelines of agreed tasks. Make sure you have a detailed workflow as to how the application is to operate and agreed timelines as to when certain parts of the application are to be completed.  Also, always ask for documentation as to the app being built as it will help should you have to modify with another application vendor in future.  Lastly, only seek the services of an application developer when you have a plan.  This way you will have a better handle on your costs to develop said app.  Feel free to connect with me should you require any recommendations for application developers.
