Today, most businesses rely on some types of applications, more commonly known as apps, for their customers as well as in their daily business needs. Using third-party apps is a temporary solution, but for better security, improved marketing and branding and full customization, designing individual and unique apps for your Atlanta business is the best option.
When choosing an app developer, or a website developer, there are some basics that a business owner should consider. This doesn’t mean that you have to become an expert in app design, but you do need to approach the choice of development companies from a logical and informed perspective.
The Zend Option
Most applications will need to be able to access a wide variety of different databases to be able to provide the functions you require. Not all frameworks and development tools offer this flexibility, but one that does in called Zend.
A Zend developer is a professional with training and experience in working with the Zend framework, which uses PHP 5 as the scripting language. This is an open source framework that has different packages and different controllers to create multi-featured apps and web pages.
What to Consider
If you look online for a Zend developer, you will find millions of possible professionals. A large number of these companies and freelancers are located outside of the United States.
For Atlanta businesses, narrowing your search to a local web and app development company with expertise and experience in Zend development should be a priority. Having a local company working on your app or website allows for easy communication, quick revisions and the ability to develop a partnership for future projects.
Additionally, take the time to find out about the experience of the company. Looking at past projects the development company has undertaken will help you to see the possibility and potential while also eliminating those businesses that don’t meet your standards.
