Every entrepreneur seeks to get a high-quality product for a reasonable price. Today, augmented reality development services are offered both by specialized digital companies and freelancers, working independently. Many customers prefer collaboration with freelancers. This is not at all surprising, because they are attracted by the low cost of work. But do not be too superficial in such a judgment. If your project is simple or you need only certain specific services, then yes, it is more profitable for you to hire a freelance developer. But for large, complex projects that will need the services of more than one specialist, in the end, the costs will be rather high.
To find a suitable candidate, it is enough to visit specialized online platforms. Among freelancers you can meet both students and experienced professionals. And even if a freelancer has a large number of completed projects, this does not mean that he is a good worker, because the quality of these projects can be very doubtful, the code may be poorly written, and the overall work of such an application would be unsatisfactory. Even when you look for reviews about such platforms, you will find many negative ones — a large number of freelancers have a great deal of negative feedbacks and comments from dissatisfied customers.
Also, you should understand that there's a possibility that you will be communicating with representatives of the platform, instead of the person you have chosen to work on your project. So, your chances of finding out how professional a team or a person who works for you remotely are scanty, as well as the possibility of fruitful communication and successful discussion of your technical task. Developers may change on different stages of your project, and their qualification
will vary dramatically too.
That is, until you get to the final stage, your initial developer can be transferred to another task, and the junior developer will be completing his endeavors, which will affect the quality of a final product a lot.
And if you choose digital agency all contacts will be happening directly with the people who work on your project — develop the app and are involved in its launching. It will also help to establish professional contacts in the future. So, when deciding where to order AR development, it is important to evaluate this matter from all sides. When freelancers are considered, that is:
No contract. As a rule, less than 90% of freelancers agree to sign it. Ask yourself, in this case, will your contractor guarantee the quality of the final product if there is no written contract in which it is spelled out? The absence of this document leads to the fact that your order may not meet the specified requirements, and will fail to meet deadline. Thus, effective protection of your rights when working with a freelancer is limited;
The possibility that the performer will disappear. When ordering AR development from an unknown specialist and giving him/her a deposit, you should not forget that he/she can just go silent. When choosing a freelancer, you should pay attention to the portfolio, impeccable reputation and feedback on the completed tasks, though you still can never
be 100% sure about the reliability and authenticity of this information;
