How to Select the Best IoT Application
Development Company for Your Next Project?

IoT has remained a hot potato in the corporate
world for years. Though IoT term was coined back
in 1999, it has started mainstreaming in the
industries in recent years. A renowned research
firm Gartner has predicted that there will be 5.8
billion enterprise and automotive IoT endpoints
will be in use by the year 2020. The IoT concept
will remain a choice of many modern enterprises
to perform various tasks ranging from mundane to
most complex ones. The IoT applications with
enterprise-friendly features can take the
enterprise to the next level while making the
most of a revolutionary IoT concept. But then,
you need to select the right IoT application
development company. Here we share some of the
top tips to choose the right app development
partner for your existing IoT system. Owners of
B2B and B2C businesses can find this concise
guide very helpful to hire the right IoT app
development company. But before moving forward,
lets understand the significance of IoT apps for
modern enterprises. A reliable mobile app
development company can integrate sensors,
gadgets, and devices to build an advanced IoT
mobile app.

Technological advancements and changing business
requirements have taken the IoT app development
process to the next level. Simply put, IoT is all
set to revolutionize the way we live and do
business through the apps. The IoT market is
expected to grow to 561.04 billion in 2020,
thanks to the growing interest of enterprises in
this technology. Today, many app development
companies claim to build feature-rich IoT apps,
just to grab a share of the pie. It makes the
task of selecting the right IoT application
development company for your upcoming project
even more difficult. Here we give some useful
tips to find and hire the right IoT app
developer. Top Tips to Consider while Choosing
the Best IoT App Development Company 1.
IoT-specific skills This is the first thing to
consider. Many mobile app development companies
either lack the necessary tools or expert
resources to build customized IoT app solutions.
You need to hire an IoT application development
company with a proven track record of delivering
high-end IoT app solutions.

The app development company with expertise and
experience in serving the electrical or
mechanical engineering companies with advanced
software solutions can be a preferred choice. 2.
Reviews and Rating In todays technology-driven
age, it is better to find online reviews and
ratings of various mobile app development
companies for building IoT apps. You can also
consider the testimonials on their respective
website as a reliable source to find the right
development partner. You can get the feedback by
contacting the previous clients of IoT app
development companies to get the real
picture. 3. Communication Style Do you know
there are two types of corporate clients for a
mobile app development company? One, companies
that leave everything on their app development
partner until the project delivery date comes
near. Two, companies that need information about
development phases at the regular interval. Many
IoT app development companies send their clients
weekly invoices stating how much time was given
to specific development activities.

4. Testing Procedure Be it an IoT app for Android
or iOS, the testing procedure always remains
strong because the IoT apps are integrated with
the existing IoT network consisting of servers
and connected devices. You need to make sure that
the IoT app developer has a robust and automated
testing procedure in place for customized IoT
apps. Whats more, it is necessary to meet
deadlines while following extensive
testing. Another point is, as your IoT app grows
in size and scale, it becomes more complex and
complicated to manage. It is difficult to change
even a single line once the app runs in a full
swing. There, the IoT app developer should have
advanced tools and techniques for testing and
maintenance of the app. The IoT app development
company you select should be capable of
identifying a bug or error at every level. Also

Flexibility Your company and app development
partner should be flexible enough to implement
potential changes in the app throughout the
development life cycle. As a client, it is
advisable for you to understand the difference
between the necessary and desired app features.
6

Simply put, you need to maintain a subtle balance
between the end users needs and budgetary
limitations. The IoT app development company that
follows the agile methodology is a preferred
choice for developing bespoke IoT apps because
they can make an app flexible enough to integrate
the necessary feature even at the last moment to
come up with the right solution. 6. Full-stack
Capabilities As the majority part of the
customized IoT app solution is software, it is
better to select the IoT app development company
that has full-stack developers. In other words,
you should give preference to the companies that
have a strong presence in both web and mobile app
development domains. Full-stack development
companies can develop an end-to-end app solution
that manages the hardware, web and mobile
interfaces alike. 7. Design and Development
Standards Unlike traditional mobile apps, IoT
apps need to be more secure because they deal
with a large network consisting of devices,
smartphones, and servers. These apps are designed
to fetch and share confidential data of users and
enterprises alike across the network and
therefore, they remain vulnerable to cyber
attacks. Therefore, you need to select the IoT
app development company that strictly follows all
the design and development standards.

  • 8. Infrastructure
  • Last but not least, the major point is
    infrastructure. This is a major prerequisite when
    you finalize the IoT application development
    company. The state-of-the-art infrastructure and
    cutting-edge tools can help development companies
    to come up with a seamlessly-performing app.
  • You should also keep in mind that the app
    development company provides you end-to-end app
    development services ranging from development to
    deployment and design to maintenance. It is
    better to assess the infrastructure and discuss
    the project with the developers before hiring a
    company.
  • You may wonder about the starting point for an
    IoT app development project. Here we give some
    additional tips for you to make a proper roadmap
    that can save the IoT app developers time and
    effort while enabling you to get an excellent app
    in a short time.

    Development
  • First things first. You should decide the
    complexity level and necessary features for your
    IoT application. The mobile app development
    company can help you out, but it is better to do
    homework regarding market trends and your
    competitors apps to define a proper strategy.

Extensive research and complete background check
are also useful to find the right IoT app
development partner. Also, you should make a list
of app features to determine the cost. Finally,
you should ask for integrating additional
security features in your IoT app like encryption
and user authentication to the mobile app
development company. Scalability and flexibility
are also the most sought-after characteristics of
the enterprise-level IoT app. Concluding
Lines It is a herculean task to find the most
suitable IoT application development company for
your next project. You need a development partner
that can effectively handle the ever-changing
business needs and growing challenges. Being
innovative and creative can be key
characteristics of your IoT app developer with
having necessary domain expertise.
