You have your mobile business idea ready, have allocated a budget, and with a burning desire to develop and launch your mobile app, you start searching for the best mobile app development agency.
What will be the most important factor to consider?
If your answer is pricing, then we are afraid you have missed the point.
Yes, pricing is essential, but there are other factors, much more important than pricing, that you need to consider at every point before finalizing the best mobile app development agency for your business.
How Big Is The Mobile Apps Market?
As of now, more than 45% of the eCommerce business in the USA has converted into a mobile app, and this makes the mobile eCommerce business worth $250 billion, a huge, untapped market.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg: Besides eCommerce, there are tons of other niches and markets that are swelling at an astounding pace. Be it health, entertainment, fitness, productivity, food, transportation; consumers in every domain are demanding more mobile apps, more mobile commerce, and more user-friendly experiences right on the smartphone.
If you are still not on mobile, you need to better hurry.
3 Critical Factors To Consider Before Selecting Mobile App Development Agency
What will happen if you ask the fish to climb a tree? Or ask the monkey to win the swimming contest?
Both will fail.
One of the biggest mistakes that entrepreneurs and CTOs make while selecting a mobile app development agency is that they fail to locate the core expertise of the agency. And based on standard presentations and pricing strategy, they select them.
And this deprives them of scooping out the best results, simply because that agency is not an expert in your domain.
You should always find out about previous works of the agency, check out reviews and feedback from their clients, and then determine if that agency is worthy of getting your contract or not.
Team Behind That Agency
Behind the flashy sales pitch, out-of-the-world promises, and attractive pricing, who exactly will be working on your mobile app project?
How much expertise and experience that team has when it comes to creating mobile apps? Which platforms they work on, and how many clients have they served?
Ask these questions, perform due investigation, and clarify these doubts before making the final call. When you select the best team for developing your mobile app, then everything changes.
Instead of building a mediocre mobile app that will soon fade into oblivion, you can develop a popular, best-selling mobile app, that breaks all benchmarks when you select the best team.
After Sales Support & Maintenance
Conceptualizing and developing a mobile app is only half the job done.
Maintaining the app, ensuring 100% uptime, and making quick changes as and when required are equally as important, as the development.
Ask hard-hitting questions about after-sales service, maintenance of the mobile app, customization requirements, and the turnaround time for these services, before finalizing the mobile app development for your business.
If you are not receiving all these after-sale services for your mobile app, then the growth and progress you are expecting will come to a screeching halt.
