ZapQuery helps businesses find the right software development company to build their custom web or mobile application. Establishing a business to business relationship is a long term investment for both parties. Done right, it can benefit both businesses and when unsuccessful, it can cause a lot of cost and damage.
Through extensive research, we have found that about 40% of the businesses source their vendors online. It usually starts with a Google search, followed by reaching out to about 10-12 different companies that show up in the search results and setting up phone calls or face-to-face meetings. Software companies are sometimes required to submit a proposal to showcase their capabilities. It can take a significant amount of time to learn about the project requirements enough to put together a winning proposal, and a competitive quote and timeline. Reviewing submitted proposals on the other hand can take several weeks or even months. It is a costly process and a significant investment in terms of both time and money from both parties. Depending on how familiar the company is with the terms and technologies used in the field, these meetings can get really confusing. As every company claims to be working with the best and latest technologies, every company has a handful of interesting portfolio projects to show off and a lot of sales skills.
We have met a lot of companies that were so unsatisfied with their partnership that they accepted all the costs of switching and going through the process of finding a new vendor, this time with a better understanding of what they are looking for.
