How We Chose the Best Custom Software Development Companies in Philadelphia

There are many aspects that go into creating a good software development company, but often, even the best might not be the right choice for some start-ups. We’ve gathered a comprehensive list of 15 custom software development companies in Philadelphia, covering a range of industries, services lines, prices, programming languages and frameworks, and more. So whether you're an e-commerce or tech start-up, at least one company in this list will appeal to your needs.

Multiple Service Lines

No matter what business area your start-up operates in, you’ll most likely find the need for services such as DevOps, consulting, and QA. But that doesn’t mean every company on this list does the exact same thing, as some are more specialized in, say, CRM consulting and SI, whereas others are masters in graphic design. We’ve taken this into consideration and selected a rich variety of service lines provided.

Size of Firm

Does the prospect of dealing with a company that handles dozens of operations per day across intertwined teams consisting of dozens of employees sound daunting? Or perhaps that's exactly what your start-up needs, because smaller companies just don’t have the workforce required for your project. No worries, as companies on this list range from small and close-knit developers to ones that employ hundreds of specialists working across different projects.

Industry Focus

Not everyone likes the same food. Likewise, not every start-up operates within the same industries. It would be wiser for a tech start-up to cooperate with a software development company that specializes in the tech industry, rather than in retail, healthcare, or any other field. We’ve taken this into account and carefully selected each company to offer a unique proposal to prospecting clients.

Questions to Ask Custom Software Development Companies

With so many custom software development companies in Philadelphia each offering similar features, it’s important to ask the right questions during your initial discovery call or demo. To help you make the right inquiries, we put together a downloadable list of questions to ask your prospective custom software developers.
