2. Discuss about Coding

2. Discuss about Coding The quality of coding will directly influence the quality of the application built. Discuss with the custom software developers regarding the level to be maintained while coding. Point your guidelines like - •No buggy/resource-hungry codes •More of Lean coding etc. 3. Check the Company Portfolio Go through a few of the past projects to get an idea of the type of applications the software developers have worked on. Wonder why? Here’s the reason – Custom software development companies that have worked on many projects have a tried and tested methodology for successful completion of the projects. On the contrary, new software development companies (because of less experience) are still in the stage of developing methodologies. As a result – they are not familiar with the challenges that can surface during software development lifecycle. Tip: Consider the size of your software project. Most Custom Software Development companies prefer taking projects of a particular size i.e., multi-year or multi-enterprise projects. 4. Understand different Software Systems Learn about the different Software Development technologies like Windows and UNIX. Depending on their characteristics, decide the technology you would want your custom application to get built on. Check out the type of development technology the company is experienced in. This is especially applicable if you require your project to be built on specific software System. 5. Focus on Delivery Time Choose a Custom Software Development company that has a proven track record of on-time delivery. Not only will this give you and your team enough time to test the software and report bugs (if any); your employees can train and orient themselves to make better use of the application. Tip: Decide the deadline of the application in the initial negotiation phase. Set the timeframe considering the time to be taken for debugging and training. 6. Emphasize upon Good Communication Skills Do not choose a team of geeks, sitting in a dark room, coding, completely isolated from the rest of the world. Make sure your chosen software developers not only have technical skills to build your application, but also communication skills. Benefit; you’ll not have to put much effort in getting regular updates from the developers. You can ask questions and initiate discussions to ensure that the application gets developed in a way that it optimally meets your business goals. 7. Clarify about the Application Ownership What if you find your competitors using the application, you specially got custom built for your

organization? Scary right? Custom software is owned by the company who pays for it. However, there have been exclusive cases of ownership conflict between custom software development companies and business owners. To avoid any such conflicts in your project, ensure that the contract clearly states the ownership clause in compliance with the laws of the governing state. 8. Pay attention on User Experience Choose a custom software development company that has the expertise and resources to provide exceptional user experience. Do not opt for a one-off utility to solve a short-term problem as it will not serve any purpose. It’s advisable that you invest more to get a highly polished user-friendly application System. This will truly be a success for your business. 9. Consider Security and Safety issues Answer to questions like: •Will the software application have sensitive data, like - classified information, proprietary business information etc? •What will be the risk involved if the software works incorrectly? Ensure that the custom software development company you choose is insured to work on highsecurity/high-safety Systems. 10. Clarify about After-Development Support Discuss the after-development support services with the software development company. Make sure that they commit (in writing) to provide software configuration, software orientation, software customization, software maintenance and software backup services. Warehouse Management Systeam A Warehouse Management System (WMS) will bring a range of benefits to many different types of organizations. Any operation where there is a need for stock control can benefit in a variety of areas. Staffing Levels Warehouse labour costs can be extremely high when there is a large throughput of items. Implementing a WMS will mean that companies can reduce staffing levels in two ways. Normal operational conditions will see reductions in staffing levels and seasonal peaks in demand are more likely to be met and managed by the System as opposed to the recruitment of temporary staff. Equipment a reduction in the workforce comes a reduction in the volume of equipment required to run a warehouse facility. This results in a significant reduction on annual maintenance budgets and future capital purchases of new equipment can be reduced. Workforce reductions can, in some
