June 18, 2021

According to a study carried out by Apiumhub, one of the most complicated factors that companies / companies face when trying to work with a software provider, is finding the right company.

In fact, that report showed that hiring a software development company is one of the most complicated steps due to the many factors that can influence this decision.

That's why today we will talk about the tips to find your best software provider option in Panama, and how you can get a software development company that really adapts to your requirements and demands.

However, before you start, it's time to clarify two points:

  1. Consider this blog as a guide that can help you find a software provider / development company anywhere in the world, not just in Panama.

  2. Read our previous blog on the subject here so you have a better idea of ​​what software development is about and what it is like to work with a company of this type.

1: Define your project first

Before starting your search, you need to be clear about what you are looking for. Keep in mind that there are thousands of software providers in Panama and in the world, and that not all of them specialize in the same or handle the same number of technologies.

That is why defining your project, knowing what you are looking for, what is the problem you are looking to solve within your company and what is the software solution that can help you is so important.

By doing this you not only get a better visualization of where your project is going and what you will get, but it will help you to define the requirements for it and what you should look for in each provider.

2: Focus on a local search, then extend it if necessary

When looking for a software solution (mobile or web), it is a good idea to focus on finding an onshore or nearshore company before expanding your search to companies located in other countries.

To explain it differently: It is better to work with companies that are in your same country or nearby countries (If you are from the United States, or even Panama, looking for software developers in Panama is a great idea) that you venture to work with companies in Europe. or Asia

In fact, we explained this more thoroughly in our previous blog, in which we talked about the differences between development companies offshore vs nearshore and because working with nearshore developers is a better option.

3: Search on Google

It may seem like an obvious choice, but not everyone knows how Google works and how SEO is constantly helping you find the best software providers in Panama (and the world).

We have a blog talking a lot more in depth about this topic here, which we recommend you read. However, our point is that any reliable software provider must have a certain level of online presence, and therefore, appear in the Google results.

This does NOT mean that you only have to look at your web page or online platform when deciding, but it is important that you consider these results when choosing. Keep in mind that every software provider or reliable development company must have an online presence.

4: Ask about your previous projects or portfolio

Any software provider in Panama (or anywhere in the world) that is sufficiently reliable should have a portfolio of previous projects and clients that they can show to their future clients.

Usually, you can find these projects on your website and you can view them yourself. However, if you are really considering hiring this company, do not hesitate to inquire more about these projects, what they were treated, and how they were carried out.

5: Inquire about the type of technologies they handle

As we said before, not all software providers handle the same technologies. In fact, the technologies handled change drastically depending on the developers and the area in which you are looking, as indicated in our previous report that you can read here.

If you already have your type of project defined, and you know the type of solution you are looking for, comparing the technologies managed by the software provider with the optimal technologies to develop your solution will be much simpler.

6: Choose a company that can really carry out your project

Last but not least, we recommend that you choose a provider that can develop the solution you need on time and easily.

By this we mean looking for a software provider or development company that is up to the challenge, that has the hardware, software and talent team to develop what you need.

In conclusion, finding the perfect software provider depends 90% and 10% good luck. If you are looking for a software solution for your company, and you want to work with a reliable software provider in Panama with previous experience, contact us! We are ready to help you.
