Things That You Need to Examine Before You Hire a Web Developing Company
When looking for web developers most companies will consider the cost, hidden charges, experience of the developers and the reputation that the hold. Here are more things that you need to examine before you hire a web developing company.
The web developers must engage the IT and other selected staff in your company to work on the project from design, development, and installation of the site. Web developers are technical people who may not understand your business need hence your staff is there to guide them to develop a site that will meet those needs.
The company’s employees should be able to use coding languages and software for them to assure you that the site will have modern features. There has to be experts such as digital marketers and graphic designers.
They should have free customer support services after web installation. They need to train employees and help them to overcome the challenges that the site may expose them to be for they get used to it. The only way that the experts can determine the errors that are on the site and the challenges that the employees are facing when using it is by training and observing the employees during the training so that they can improve the site. Instead of looking for customers to help you to test your site, use your employees because they are easily available and they understand the needs of the customers.
The company will install the template of the software directly onto your system or hand over the software licenses/keys and admin access only if you are yet to complete the payment. You will receive other essential documents later after you pay the amount in full because the developers are also afraid that the client may steal their software.
After you complete the payment the developer should give you the quality assurance document, source files, software instructions manual, web maintenance document, web testing plan document, and any other documents. All these documents can be combined in a RAR or Zip and emailed to you or sent through the cloud applications like Dropbox but developers who are still using the old technology will burn them on a CD and hand it over to you.
Some developers send scanned signed contracts while others use hard copy contracts; hence they must send it alongside other documents that should not be sent to you in soft copy. The vital documents of the website prove that you are its owner hence ensure that you get all of those documents or else the developer can resell them to another client and hand over the site to the other party.
