Finding the right WMS development partner

  1. Ask colleagues and friends. Recommendations are the best way to choose a restaurant or hotel, and the same applies to choosing an outsourcer. So, start by asking colleagues and friends if they can recommend someone and make a list of potential partners.
  2. Learn company reputation. Visit platforms like Clutch, GoodFirms, or just google, and read what partners and employees think of the company of your choice.
  3. Filter out unsuitable candidates. Shorten the list of applicants by evaluating them according to:
  • technical expertise
  • related experience
  • technologies adoption
  • portfolio of similar cases
