How to Evaluate Price Quotes from Mobile App Development Companies
‘Do your research, before you venture in’. You might have come across this adage for a zillion times on online articles and community forums about how to find the best mobile app development company. It’s relatively easier to assess an app development company’s level of expertise by exploring the work they have done. Some companies even offer to have their developers for pilot testing before finalizing the deal to work with them. This helps in building confidence in their services, professionalism and expertise.
But when it comes to evaluating quotes, price estimation for the same mobile app development requirement from two companies can vary significantly. Moreover, some companies charge (though nominally) for assessing app requirements and providing a quotation! Irrespective of whether you choose or don’t choose to go with them after receiving their quote. So, how do you keep your sanity and evaluate the quotations?
1. Read through carefully: Often devil lies in the details. While evaluating the price quotes look for the services each of the mobile application development company is providing. This could include things like testing for app user-experience, debugging and technical support throughout the project execution.
2. Project based or time based charges: When asking for a quote specify as to you whether you are willing to pay a fixed price when the project is completed and delivered or pay on the bases of number of hours dedicated on weekly or monthly basis by the mobile app developer. Often it makes more economical sense to go for project-based pricing with a professional mobile application development company in India.
Caveat: Don’t risk your money by simply going with who provides you the service at cheapest price.
