4 App Outsourcing Mistakes That You Need to Avoid

by Micheal John Technical Writer

It is highly unlikely that you can complete all the necessary tasks for your business, and still have time for the ultimate balance. You will need to outsource some parts, if you want to grow your business, and take some hours of break for your creative juices to be rejuvenated.

Of the many tasks, mobile app development is often outsourced, as it requires the help of a professional, and is pretty time consuming and cost increasing, if done in-house. However, when you are planning to outsource your mobile app development, then you need to be extra careful.

When you are outsourcing your mobile app development, you need to be extra careful. It is important you choose someone capable of handling your needs, and living up to your expectations. You cannot miss out a single step in the process, if you want to get someone reliable on-board.

Here are a few mistakes that we believe you should avoid if you are planning app outsourcing.

Insufficient research

Sometimes, we tend to research only the aspects that we believe are important, and in this attempt we forget to research some of the basic things about the company. That’s the first mistake you are likely to make when hiring a company for your mobile app development project.

How many projects have they done? What type of projects have they accomplished? What is their website like? What kind of services they offer? What does their own website look like? If you have not asked these basic questions while conducting the research, you won’t be able to understand the company in question and their abilities completely.

Not communicating enough

It is when you communicate more and often with the company that you become aware of their responses. How fast do they respond? Do they understand emergency? Do they handle your questions efficiently? Do they explain everything that you want to know about the work and their services? Do they understand your requirements completely? Are their processes transparent?

All these questions would be answered only when you communicate with them, and ask questions that demand answers. You need to make them believe you are not hindering their work but, need answers to the necessary questions. A good communication helps deliver the project fast.

Incomplete requirements

When you are looking for an app development company, it is important that you have the list of your app requirements handy. That’s when you can easily get the company to develop the app. The mistake that most people make is not having the list of requirements handy, which means you are not sure what you want in your app. You have an idea but have not thought through the app, which means you have just about the basics ready.

This will delay the app development, as you will keep updating the developer with the features while it is being developed. Make sure you have all the requirements for the first phase ready.

Compromising on quality

Most often businesses tend to go with the ones that quote the lowest price. A low bid does not mean good quality. If your app lacks quality, then you will need to go through the development process again, just to sort out the problems. This will eventually add to the budget.

Instead, look for someone who offers quality solutions in one go, and you will be able to save a lot on the budget spent into delivering an app solution.


App development outsourcing requires a lot of efforts, right from searching the agency to actually bringing them on-board.
