Previous Work

Many software development companies will market themselves as the best but have very little to show in terms of previous work. When searching, look for outsourced client stories, reviews and other portfolio related website content.

A display of previous work also builds trust that this company will actually produce a high quality piece of software. The cheapest option is not always the best and searching around for previous work and happy clients is worthwhile.

Large Team of Developers

The main reason for outsourcing your software project is to get it done professionally and efficiently. If you outsource development to a freelancer, they are more likely to specialist in a certain programming language and be rushing it themselves to meet a target.

Look into the software development companies websites such as the “about page” or “team” to see who is actually a developer in the company. A strong team of skilled developers is critical in order to ensure your project is completed to high standards.

Technical Ability

It is pointless asking a software company to code a frontend project involving large quantities of Node.js, JavaScript and JQuery when they are specialists in backend technologies such as SQL and PHP.

Larger team will be able to pass work around to certain areas of the team within an Agile Development life cycle. Always ask whether they are able to carry out the work you require and ask for examples of such work.

Keeping up with the Latest Trends

Software development is changing every year with focus on different sectors. The majority of software must follow “mobile first” guidelines with intuitive designs and high performing applications that load instantly. Check the software development news section for updates to see what they are doing and if they are going to events.

Professional companies will be writing about the latest trends and conferences that they have been attending. If this is not documented on their website, this should raise some question marks in terms of trust.


Being able to talk to the project manager of the software development outsourcing company is key. Even if this is simply discussing your project, if you are not getting fast replies, this should be a warning that communication is poor. A client and developer relationship should be clear, easy and the client must be updated regularly. However, at the same time you do not want to be harassed with calls or emails. It is best to arrange a schedule that will fit in with your daily routine.
