Although there are many benefits to hiring a custom development consultant, researchers using a custom development service receive these three key benefits:
1. Shortens The Technology Learning Curve
A qualified consulting service can substantially lessen the amount of time a researcher needs to spend on getting up to speed with technology and usability. As an old adage proclaims, “time is money.” A consultant who is knowledgeable on the ins and outs of technology platforms and overall architectural strategies can hone in quickly on what will work best for your particular application.
2. Comprehensive Research Review
A qualified service will review your project’s goals and define a solution consistent with research objectives and expected results. This type of targeted review, combined with concrete knowledge of technology options and observance of best practices keeps the researcher from expending time and budget on the wrong platforms.
3. Effective Dedication Of Resources
Many researchers unfamiliar with application development best practices underestimate the amount of time necessary to achieve optimal results. A qualified service will create a written project plan for moving forward. This plan should include a proposed timeline with daily, weekly, and monthly tasks and milestones necessary for implementation.
A knowledgeable consulting service not only creates a comprehensive project plan and timelines, but will also get to know your research well enough to be able to suggest delegation of specific tasks according to your internal resources and budget.
