Do you want to seek the professional advice of a fleet management software consultant? If you are planning to start the development phase of your software project soon, talking to a software consultant first could be a good idea. Below are the best ways to help you select a dependable software consultant:
· Check the profile of a potential software consultant
Software consultants aren’t hard to find nowadays. You can simply do online search on professional sites like LinkedIn and get a good list of suitable candidates offering their consulting services as software specialists. When you have gathered enough lead, take time to check each candidate’s profile before scheduling an interview.
· Prepare a list of questions
Even if you aren’t knowledgeable in programming languages, I suggest you prepare a list of relevant questions that you can ask with a potential fleet management software consultant. Here are some of the frequently asked questions you can ask with the software consultant:
– How many software projects have you handled before?
– Did you have a similar project like this one?
– If yes, how much is the cost of your professional fees?
– Will you meet with my software developers to discuss the entire project?
– What is the coverage of your professional services, initial phase only or all throughout the completion of the final product?
· Request proofs of past customers
Most prominent software consultants have already established their names in the industry and for sure have an extensive compilation of their past customers. Ask the potential consultant to bring along during the interview all proofs of his or her past projects including references.
· Test the consultant expertise
You can easily detect if you are talking to a knowledgeable fleet management software consultant, his or her skills are visible during the interview. Try to observe how your potential software consultant gives further explanation to the different phases of the software development project. If the consultant has the ability to give you a detailed explanation on how the entire project will be carried from start until the testing phase, this confirms you are talking with an expert professional. On the other hand, if the potential software consultant seems reluctant with his or her ideas and can’t even explain in simple terms the different methodologies of a software project, this person still lacks the skills and can’t assume the role of a consultant effectively.
