Looking for the reference cases

What do you usually when interviewing and recruiting the new employees? Of course, their experience and porforlio. And for offshoring a software development team or company, previous experience and related projects will play an important role in your decision. That’s why understanding your idea will help you find the suitable partner. 

Looking for the previous related projects can help you understand yourpartners’ strengths and weakness, as well as determine if they are your corrected choice or not. You can see their experience while working in the project which is similar to yours, and the way they react when the unexpected issues happen. 

Questions, questions, and questions

Finding the partner’s ability via their portfolio is sometimes not enough, then, directly interviewing, asking many questions are the solutions, which can be used to make sure you did make the right decision. Just don’t worry and make as many questions as possible, then you may understand your partner, make your relationships closer, as well as check if the communication can flow naturally.

What are your expectations

The mobile app is your idea, then only you can understand what you expect from your partner. You should explain and have a detailed discussion with your partner to ensure both of you understand the mission, vision and your expectation with the app. The expectation here is not only from your side – the app idea, but also from your partner- the software development team, where they have to understand the payment terms, the working process, communication method, the timeline and others related issues before starting the partnership. 

Asking for a project plan?

The project plan or the timeline is which you can use to check the working status and process if they meet the reality result. To easily follow the mobile app development process, don’t hesitate to ask your developer team to create the project plan and frequently update it. Which can help you easily check the working process and it is useful for the manager to well organize and control the employees. 

Partner collaboration

As the development of technology, the competitors may no longer exist in the future because many big brands are combined together to build up a new organization. Therefore, building the partnership may not only help you to build up your required mobile app, but also strengthen your business. Because your partner- a mobile application development company, with their own experience in building a mobile app sometimes can give you useful advices of the app’s features and functions, even strategy or new idea to make the app better. So, listening to your partner, learning from them, and trusting them may make your solution better. 

Communication is the key decision

Of course the application is your idea, not your partner idea, then communication plays an essential role in the whole process, to ensure you and your partner company understand each other and work for the same objectives. To be on the same page as your developers, both you and your developers should not be afraid to ask, discuss, and respond ASAP, which leads to reduce mistakes, revisions, costs, and conflicts while collaboration. 

Also, it is important to unify the communication channel among the team, clarify the respond method to make sure the whole team are in the same loop and never miss any information.  Making sure you and your team speak the same languages, and your team understand what you are talking about. 

Finally, never forget that interactive communication is always better than one-way communication. Don’t apply your thoughts to your team, let them freely raise their idea, it can help you get a better result.
