How to pick a software development company in Panama

June 18, 2021

Nowadays, more and more businesses and companies are betting on having a web solution. Either a commercial website, a digital platform, or a mobile application.

However, most businesses and companies do not have the staff, equipment and knowledge to create a digital solution on their own, so they resort to working with software development companies in Panama.

Today we are going to tell you that you must take into account when looking for a software development company in the country, and that you should avoid when choosing your new software provider in Panama, but first, we recommend that you read our blog previous, in which we talked about the factors that make a company a great provider of software outsourcing, here

1: Be clear about what type of solution you are looking for

The first step in finding the perfect software development company in Panama is to be clear about what kind of solution you want, or are you looking for your business.

Not only in this way do you have a clearer vision of what you are going to look for, but you will also find a company that adapts directly to the needs of your project.

It is important that, if you do not have a clear idea of ​​the type of web solution you want, that you at least have an idea of ​​what you want to achieve, in this way, the software development company will be able to create a solution for you.

2: Consider their online presence

Although when deciding to work with a web solutions company Panama, you can not rely solely on their online presence, this is still an important point.

A good platform or web page that allows you to see who they are, what they have done, and what their company is about is always an extra point. If the company you are considering working with does not have a web page or some kind of online presence, it is time for you to consider that as a signal, and continue your search.

3: Make question about past projects / verifiable prior experience

We have said this many times before, but when looking for a Panama web solution, you need to check that the software development company you plan to work with is capable of carrying out your own project.

That is why asking about past projects they have been involved in is so important. Not only does it let you see that other businesses / companies have already trusted them, but it allows you to compare your projects with yours and corroborate that, in effect, they are capable of helping you.

4: Keep in mind how they carry out software development projects

We know that understanding the way in which software development projects are carried out in Panama can be confusing for businesses / companies that are not familiar with the subject.

However, it is still vital to know what software development methods you will be implementing in your project, and if it really fits what you need.

Of course, this is something that the software development company should explain to you in an understandable way, and if you still do not feel satisfied with the answer, or feel that they could not provide you with an answer at all, it's a good idea then to continue searching .

5: Take into account the price / quality ratio according to the architecture

Knowing the different prices that are handled in software development is not easy and may vary depending on the type of solution you are looking for, and the architecture implemented.

For example, a static web solution may have a completely different price than an e-commerce solution, which involves a much deeper development at the technical level, since it must also handle online payments, external APIs, etc.

Keep in mind that the more complicated the solution (web or mobile) is, the more expensive it will be. As we already mentioned, you can not compare the work carried out by a web portal, which must connect several sections to the same page, to the development work behind a dynamic web application.

If you want to know better about this price / quality ratio behind the web development solutions, do not forget to read our previous blog about it, here.

6: Ask about the type of technologies they handle

Last but not least, knowing the experience that the software development company has managing different technologies will help you to know if they can really carry out your project.

Keep in mind that the previous experience they have, and the technologies they have handled are two different points. Even if you decide to work with a small company with little previous experience, but are experts in the right technologies, there's no need to worry.
