It’ll co$t how much? You can reduce your technology custom development price tag.
There are obviously many factors that go into the price of custom development, and you may be surprised to learn that some of them are directly related to your business culture and not your business requirements!
You may not be able to control all of the factors, but you can take positive action to significantly bring down development fees.
Here are some of the factors influencing custom development costs and what you can do about them.
The quality and completeness of the specification provided:
think your requirements through and document them thoroughly
Frequency of changes to the specifications:
take the time up front, before any design and coding has been started to really nail down in detail everything you need the software to do for you. Specification changes and additions (small or large) usually lead to painful price escalations.
Extent of end-user familiarity with Dynamics NAV:
make sure you are knowledgeable about the out-of-the-box functionality in the area you are customizing – what you are looking for may already be there. In any event your enhanced Dynamics NAV familiarity will pay off.
The urgency, timing and scheduling:
plan ahead – last minute drop-dead requests are a quick way to increase costs.
Communication response time:
respond quickly to project communication while it is still fresh in the mind of your development team and they haven’t switched gears to another project.
Thoroughness and promptness of user acceptance testing:
prompt and detailed user testing is a great way to reduce project costs.
In summary, harnessing internal organization efficiency can go a long way to help you rein in your custom development costs!
