App Development in Ireland
With every tech business online declaring themselves as the ‘Go-To’ experts, and with each company proclaiming to be better than the last. here we present a must read guide as to the key questions you should ask yourself when seeking web or app development services in Ireland.
The ‘right’ web or app Development Company: Six simple questions to pose?
Do they speak your language?
The best software solutions are built by great people using proven design and programming practices to help your business achieve its goals. At HST we specialize in solving technically difficult projects but also excel at the non technical challenges associated with custom software development. With every development firm declaring themselves as the subject matter expert, its important to understand if they can actually fulfill your business needs, Though not a technically challenging task, per se, however the ability to connect with you at a high level allows us to consider your business needs when prioritizing and making critical project decisions.
Are they keen to get going and take a deposit before a robust plan is in place for development?
Studies consistently show that as many as 90% of IT projects are not delivered on time, or not at all (Project Smart) and a leading contributor to this figure is a failure to properly craft a realistic development plan. At HST Solutions we take the time to understand your business, your target market and the problem that you’re trying to solve through technology. In an industry that is infamous for cost overruns and low-ball bids, we go to great lengths in our upfront process to de-risk your project.
Does their reputation proceed them?
There may be no better a mark of craftsmanship than previous client comments; and any reputable app or web development company will also have a solid portfolio behind them (you can see ours right here), along with shining customer testimonials.
Is the company local?
The term ‘Web Development in Ireland’ may serve up an incomprehensible number of results, yet it’s more than worth hiring locally as often companies that are within the same country can understand your target market and operating conditions far better than a team based on the other side of the world can. They may even be able to provide one-to-one training when your project is deployed (something that can be invaluable when you have employees who need to get to grips with your new software platform).
Is the company versatile?
Many web development companies attempt to tie their clients down to particular platforms and coding languages as they lend themselves to the team’s experience and preference, rather than the client’s business goals. The bottom line when you’re choosing a platform or a software stack is "thinking ahead", ask your development partner to provide justification for their choice of platform, What’s more when a solution is proposed you should feel comfortable asking all the questions you wish, free from worry that you’re eating into the company’s time. They should be able to overcome any concerns you have with crystal clear answers.
What is their client mix?
Agencies that act as partners to other web or application development companies can be considered as suppliers who are trusted by fellow experts. This goes beyond having a great track record with commercial clients as testimonials can come from those who truly know the industry inside out. At HST Solutions we routinely work with other App developers in Ireland and digital agencies that also provide web development solutions. We’re entrusted by them to create robust custom software solutions that they themselves can present as their own work. What’s more as 90% of our business comes from our services being recommended through word of mouth alone, we can confidently say that our clients have no problem in endorsing what we do, and the way in which we do it. We’re therefore supremely confident in the quality of our coding and the ways in which our solutions meet with ease the business challenges that companies typically seek to overcome.
At HST Solutions we’re leading the way when it comes to innovative Software Development in Ireland; and through decidedly techno jargon-free language and a team who never indulge in sales patter or pressure, our clients are consistently seeing the results that can be delivered when their potential meets our passion.
