It can be challenging and intimidating. But following attributes can help you narrow down the search. See how big the software development agency is. See if your project gets the attention of the core team. Set up a call team to understand their past work in that domain. Avoid the ones with the cheapest quote, as it can lead to more tech complications. Try to understand how transparent and collaborative their development approach will be. See if the team can understand your language easily. Check if the team is solution-oriented rather than just focussed on technical skills.
Assuming you have got a business problem and market understanding, you'd need nothing to start with. We at RaftLabs, start with product brainstorming or roadmap sessions. This week-long exercise clears out everything about the project. We map business goals, user journey, problems, etc., everything into product features. We bring out everything on the table so that you've clarity on what next. Primarily project scope, feature prioritization, approach, timelines, etc.
Following things will help you understand the complete development approach. We start with product brainstorming or roadmap sessions to be on the same page about product vision. We then create low-fidelity wireframes so that you have a view of the product. We then move towards final designs and development. We share with you a high-level blueprint and divide all the development cycles into bi-weekly agile sprints. We meet weekly with you and share the progress. You all have access to our teams and projects via project management tools. Read more about how we work together here.
Share your technical requirements with us. We would find an engineer that matches your needs and share the profile with you. We'll facilitate a technical call so that you can evaluate the match. If need be, we offer a free try-out period to engage better and work with our engineers. Our goal is to ensure you get the maximum value.
What distinguished RaftLabs from other providers was their fantastic ability to build real-time engagement-based products. We wanted to build a platform that was partly a social media channel and partly like Zoom where people could interact with each other in real-time, and they did an awesome job doing that.
The whole app development was just seamless. From start to finish, the team did a great job.
Their ability to understand the product from the business perspective was impressive. Part of the reason for that was that both the co-founders of RaftLabs are Entrepreneurs at heart.
Team truly embodies problem solving attitude. This attitude delivered rich dividends for me as on multiple occasions. During course of my career I have engaged with multiple IT professionals. What differed in my engagement with this team was his effort to explain me the IT terminologies/processes in such a simple manner that I was never bogged down by indecipherable terms
Last 6 months have been tiring yet fruitful with experimenting an innovative way of work model for employee engagement and enterprise productivity. Thanks to RL Remotely team.
From the start the folks at Raftlabs gave us confidence that we made the right decision choosing them as a partner.
Raftlabs is not only our partner, but an integral part of our team and startup!
The project was extremely successful. I can't think of anything I would have changed if we did it again.
