Looking for a custom software provider?

We're here to help.

Highland's core SugarCRM team.

Finding a custom software provider you can trust is tough work.

You know your business inside and out, but the digital landscape is vast. It's easy to feel lost or be misled by development firms who see your problems as opportunities for profit.

We know that struggle intimately because we've helped hundreds of clients along their journey to digital transformation.

That's why we put together a guide to help people evaluate potential technology partners based over a decade of experience working on custom software projects.

This guide includes:

  1. Specific questions you can ask to evaluate vendor trustworthiness, code quality, and process maturity

  2. Simple tips for assessing a firm's reputation in the market

  3. Advice on how to price your project

  4. Benchmarks for hourly development rates
