Finding the right software provider in Panama isn’t as complicated as people make it seem. Yes, there’s a lot of competition and excellent software developers, but you just have to know where to look at, and how.
Today, in our ongoing series of blogs dedicated to understanding the software development sector in Panama, we’re going to talk about how you can spot a great software provider and start working with them right away.
However, before we begin this blog, we recommend checking our previous blogs. You’ll find information on topics such as how much does software development cost in Panama, if web solutions in Panama really work and how to pick a software development partner.
We really recommend you reading those blogs before continuing with this one. That way, you’ll have a much better idea about how the software Panama industry is, and the benefits it might bring you to work with a company from the country.
That being said, let’s being:
Consider this as a top rule to find a great software provider in Panama: If they don’t have a website, they are not the best option for you, and you might even get scammed.
You see, when looking for a software development company to help you create the software solution you need, you have to look for companies that have a well put together website that lets you see who they are, what they do, and the projects they have previously been involved on.
Think about it: Will you trust your own website solution to a company that doesn’t even have a website on their own? Chances are, you won’t, so don’t compromise the importance of your project with a company that fails to meet this first impression.
A business portfolio lets future clients (like you) get a peak at how the Panama software provider has handled previous projects, what technologies have they used, how much time did it take them and so on.
The fact that a software development company even has their portfolio available for people to see is a positive aspect to keep in mind, because it means that one, they have worked in several projects before, and two, they are proud of the outcome and know their work will catch your attention. Keep in mind that even small software development companies will have a portfolio to show you (even if it isn’t as big as you’d expect).
Most Panama software providers will showcase the opinions and rates of the clients they have worked before all over their website as a way to let future clients know who they have worked with, and the trust other people has had in them.
If you notice good reviews amongst the previous clients and positive comments, it means you have spot a great software provider who will most likely take care of your project and deliver a great product.
At the same time, you should be aware of the software development companies who don’t have public portfolios or testimonies from previous clients, and should consider this as a red flag.
We have talked about this in a previous post in which we talk about the scam of false cheap nearshore solutions, a blog in which we mention how there really isn’t “cheap” software solutions, and any software provider or company that says so, it’s most likely looking to scam you.
This stands in this case. If you’re looking for a trustworthy Panama software provider, you should trust in those who take the time to know your project, put together a plan and then specify their prices instead of just giving you a price right away, without even taking the time to know what the requirements of your project are.
Last, but definitely not least, if the software provider in Panama that you’re thinking to work with has a strong online presence (They are well positioned on Google, have a website, and have accounts across social media like Instagram, Twitter or LinkedIn), then you need to take this a positive sign.
Although it is true image isn’t everything, and you should focus on their experience and the technologies they handle, having a strong image and undeniable online presence is, without a doubt, very important when it comes to drawing your attention to them, specially nowadays, and it can be considered as a good sign.
As you can see, spotting a great software provider in Panama is about being objective and paying attention to the right things in order to find your perfect match and get your project going.
