Picking and hiring a reliable development team that brings workflow benefits rather than difficulties and extra expenses is half the job done when it comes to a successful project. Especially, when it comes to particular expertise - e.g., Drupal-based development. Good specialists point you in the most fruitful yet cost-efficient development direction, clarify tech specifics for other participants, provide access to specialized tools, and bring other advantages to the table.
Moreover, if you don’t take the stage of choosing a Drupal development company responsibly enough at the get-go, switching teams during the ongoing project workflow later will spawn nasty additional expenses and other issues. If you don’t want this to happen, make sure to take time and analyze the pool of your potential company of choice.
As a seasoned provider specializing in Drupal development services, at Alpha Web Group we point out the following aspects that should be fully satisfied by a Drupal developer if they are to be considered reliable:
1. Website - the first thing you see when considering this or that company to collaborate with is their online HQ, i.e., official website. Be it a simple landing page or a full-on website with multiple sections, it is the primary indication of the provider’s level of professionality. If a company really builds high-quality Drupal-powered solutions, their own site is smooth, rapid, intuitive, and top-of-the-line all around.
2. Portfolio - the first thing you should pay attention to once you start browsing the website or landing. Seeing completed projects that are similar to what you have in mind in the provider’s portfolio is another indication of their fitting your collaborative goals. At the same time, the portfolio’s extensiveness points out the extent of experience.
3. Field of operation - is it a specialized Drupal provider or a multipurpose gathering of specialists you are looking to work with? Weigh the pros and cons carefully, as the universal IT provider working in several fields at once may not be able to unravel Drupal’s full potential.
4. Certificates - are there any Drupa qualification certificates a company can boast? Official proofs of the high level of expertise are always a good thing.
5. Reviews and testimonials - what do previous clients have to say about the company? Take your time and check whether the authors of those reviews are real so as not to be scammed by a dishonest firm.
6. Post-release availability - a well-specialized provider won’t drop the project even after its full technical completion. Post-release availability is a sign of the company’s reliability and willingness to really dedicate to your project.
7. Coop models - lastly, is the company ready to compromise and settle the most convenient for you collaboration model? It should be if it is focused on your goals.
