3 Criteria for Choosing Software Development Company in Europe

Do you find it difficult to choose a professional software development company in Europe? There shouldn't be any problems. Here are several criteria you should pay attention to when choosing an outsource partner from Eastern Europe.

The Eastern Europe software outsourcing becomes more popular. Reasonable pricing, extensive talent pool, and active tech community — these are just several reasons why more and more successful companies are looking for developers from Ukraine, Poland, and Hungary. But how can you choose a software development company in Europe without wasting time and money? Here are 3 criteria you should pay attention to.

1. Pricing vs quality

If you’re looking for an outsourcing services partner, prices are one of the features that matter to you. Of course, knowing your budget saves you a lot of time. However, saving on a project may serve you a dirty trick. In the process of cooperation, you’ll put more value on the quality of services and communication rather than on the project price.

However, the best decision is to choose the software development company taking into account the quality of services and the results you get for a certain budget. Try to figure out what exactly you’ll get for a certain sum of money. Usually, working with outsourcing companies, you get high-quality services with product development and maintenance for a reasonable price.

2. Partner vs service provider
Choosing a software development company in Europe , make your cooperation 100% effective by asking the right questions. Check out whether the company meets the quality standards. Make sure you like its communication with partners and inside the team. Check whether the company renders full life cycle development services. Decide whether you like communicating with the project manager and other company representatives.

If a software development company treats you as a partner, not just a client, you can sign the papers with peace of mind. This guarantees that you won’t waste your precious time and energy on unpromising cooperation. Don’t work with companies that have «do it and forget it» approach. Prefer those who respect you as a partner.

3. Self-presentation vs portfolio

In order to understand what results you can achieve working with a certain software development company, you should do the research. This research should include analysis of all the information you can find. Start with having a look at company’s portfolio and checking how successful the related projects are.

Have a look at the style of works the company has developed, their type and results. If the company has got a blog, check it out. It will help you find out more about their skills and work culture. Of course, don’t forget about the social media. Check its pages in social networks and the official website. Don’t hesitate to read clients’ reviews and testimonials.

Are the services worth their price? Can the company become an effective partner? Does it have a good reputation? These are the main questions you should ask when looking for a professional Eastern European software outsourcing company. Good luck!
