The Evaluation Criteria We Applied to Curate the List of the Top Web Development Companies

We devised a unique methodology to evaluate the agencies objectively and provide you with an accurate picture of their quality. We approached the companies from multiple angles, assessing their technical skills, coding prowess, past experience, and project management style, as well as other key factors like user satisfaction, transparency, and communication.

The evaluation process is done manually because we believe algorithms cannot provide meaningful context.  The following section breaks down every step of the process in detail.

Check the Company’s Website & Portfolio

Our journey starts with a website visit. We genuinely believe that an apt web development company should have a responsive website that is easy to navigate and well formatted. In other words, we try to determine whether the agency can do for themselves what they are trying to sell to clients. Although this is not a decisive factor, it’s still noteworthy.

Once we’ve scouted the agency’s site, it’s time to look at their portfolio. The collection of their past work gives us information about how long are they on the market, what’s their experience in the field, and how many projects they have executed. Although a new kid on the block can perform as well as already established companies, it’s best to have your work with trusted professionals.

We take special note of their understanding of programming languages and the frameworks the agency is proficient in. Besides the basic HTML and JavaScript, a top web development company should keep up with the latest technologies and frameworks.

Going a step further, we take a look at the case studies. They should also detail the development process of the agency from brief to completion, so we can get a better idea of what clients can expect. As biased as cases studies might seem, they demonstrate the agency’s capabilities and expertise. Of course, if case studies aren’t readily available, it doesn’t mean the company isn’t worth their salt.

Is Web Design Included?

Web design is the basis upon which web developers, well, develop. True, you can get your website designed elsewhere, but it’s much better to have it done by the same team. Why? Because there will be no problems with the functional aspects of it when bringing the design to life by coding.

To discover whether the web development companies also offer web design, we go through their service list. Additionally, we rate their design capabilities by checking the websites listed in their portfolios and user reviews.

How Do They Handle Content, Marketing, and SEO?

Your website is your bridge to potential customers, and you want it to be as visible and well-thought-of as possible. A good web development agency will provide basic search engine optimization and inbound marketing, as well as quality content as part of their strategy.

To ensure your company will be provided with more business opportunities, we check what’s the agency’s take on SEO and other inbound marketing strategies. Again, we discover such things by going through their past work and customer reviews. If necessary, we conduct interviews with the project managers using our dedicated section with questions about inbound marketing strategy.

Does the Web Development Firm Provide Hosting Services?

For your site to be visible and accessible, it needs to be hosted on a server. One of the most important things to consider about web development providers is whether they handle web hosting. The ideal provider should be able to sort this for you. To find out whether the agencies provide hosting we check the service list of each one of them.

Some web development companies won’t provide this service but will recommend a partner agency that will handle this. In such cases, we conduct interviews to find out what kind of hosting the agency’s partner company provides, what security measures do they take, and how do they handle CMS updates.

Full-Stack Development

It only makes sense that you want a fully functional website instead of an online design with zero useful features. The website development companies we have on our list are ones that can build a website from scratch – from design to database connectivity. We look for the capabilities of the company by going through their case studies and portfolios.

The full-stack developers listed here are known to maintain the highest standards of excellence, find the most effective solutions, and provide strong technical leadership. Moreover, they have a proven track record of delivering innovation and creativity through unique coding.

As a rule of thumb, a full-stack developer excels in:

  • Optimizing the front-end in Java, HTML, PHP, and JavaScript and have knowledge in front-end technologies such LESS, SASS, REACT, and more;
  • Being proficient in multiple programming languages like Java, C#, Ruby, Python, and PHP;
  • Developing frameworks and third-party libraries like Node.Js, Express.JS, Java Spring, MyBatis, and PHP Thinkphp;
  • Understanding the concepts of databases like MongoDB, Oracle, Redis, MySQL;
  • Focus on developing UX and UI design.

Ecommerce Specialties

Online stores have significantly different requirements rather than informative websites. We made sure the web development firms on this list have experience in the ecommerce field and are able to connect various databases for stocking, delivery, customer info, and so on.

There is an overwhelming number of platforms to choose from, yet there are several open-source ones we specifically look for to find out if the agency is a good fit for ecommerce website development such as WooCommerce, Magento, PrestaShop, and X Cart.

Mobile & Responsive Web Development

Your website must look and behave the same on both desktop and handheld devices and, by checking the portfolios of the agencies, we made sure that all of the above-listed web developers deliver mobile-optimized websites.

The past projects that the web development firm has completed give us insight into their expertise and quality, how successful it is when it comes to serving their clients, how many mobile responsive sites have they developed in the past as well as how they did so.

Revisions & Support

What happens if you want to make changes to the plan and what about support after the site is live? We test the support of the agencies and check user reviews on the web to see how responsive they are. The best web dev agency should take a collaborative approach to address any problems that might arise during and after the process of making a website.

Customer Reviews & Testimonials

Checking the customer reviews and testimonials is among the most important steps when choosing the best web development companies, with the latter being more important to us. Anyone can put up a portfolio of beautiful designs, but we need client satisfaction for more precise insight into their performance that will confirm whether the company delivers all that they promised.

Pricing

Web development isn’t the most affordable thing in the world so it’s necessary to hire a company that will serve cost-effectively. To ensure this, we cross-tabulate the prices of top web development agencies and see if they are worth the price based on market prices and quality of services they are providing.

If you’re going for an onshore company, ask if you can meet them. Meeting their team or, at least, representatives means a lot, and it might influence your decision in choosing their agency as the best web development company for you.

Things to Ask Your Web Development Provider Before Sealing the Deal

1. Project Management

Project management plays a huge role in the development process and can vary from agency to agency. Virtually every firm has developed their own process. Knowing what their process is, how they implement it, and how they manage projects will help you understand whether the agency is the right fit for you.

 

  • What’s the methodology the web developers use?

How a project is managed can have a significant impact on its success. The two most popular methodologies are Waterfall a.k.a the “traditional” approach and Agile – a specific type of Rapid Application Development often implemented using Scrum.

In the Waterfall methodology, the process of development is streamlined, passing phases one by one. The transition from one stage to another happens only after the previous one is completed. This methodology follows a strict structure of work, which is why it’s the better choice for short projects.

Agile is a team-based, time-focused approach to development that enables creating a project incrementally, dividing it into phases called “sprints.” Each sprint has set deliverables and defined the duration. Agile allows changes and adaptations at any step and relies much on customer involvement especially during the review process through the daily build and end-of-sprint demos.

 

  • What project management tools are they going to use?

In the process of web developing, you can’t afford to run the risk of mismanagement. That’s why your web development team should use tools like Asana, Basecamp, or Trello to take care of all project-related communication. Each of these tools is designed to help you track project statuses, understand where your money is being spent, set milestones and meet deadlines effectively.

 

  • How do they do requirements planning?

Planning the website is an essential step because it represents the basic outline of the site. This process involves creating a wireframe and sitemap to give the developer insight into what the site will look like and how the pages will interact with each other.

The top web developers will ensure they are building the right website by conducting research which would involve positioning and targeting the market. Furthermore, they would take special note of your goals and your unique brand identity as essential components of a successful website.

 

  • What web development software architectures do they use?

The software architecture is the scheme on which the efficiency of the system depends. Good software architecture should be strong yet easy to maintain. Also, it should be flexible and usable in the long-term, as well as adaptable to changing requirements. Most importantly, the software framework needs to be communicated properly, which leads us to the next point.

 

  • Do they use UML?

UML is a visual language used to communicate detailed information about software architecture efficiently. The UML diagrams are deemed to be an integral part of web development that is easily recognized and understood. They help in evaluating performance, tracking, and security. UML diagrams are highly flexible – the modeling elements and interactions in a UML diagram can be easily customized to suit the specific domain or technologies used.

 

  • Do they provide documentation?

The best web development company will provide documents created during the planning phase. These documents define the site architecture and identify the essential creative and technical requirements. Mainly, they provide insight into how the business brand is to be applied to the website, what is the overall online strategy, what framework will be used, how will marketing be integrated, what are the site features, and more.

 

  • Are they leaving proper code comments?

Commenting the code is essential to note as it helps in extending the project in the future. They should describe and explain complicated code those who might be working on it in the future.
