How to Select the Right Medical Device Software Development Firm – 8 Crucial Questions

My firm, Syncro Medical, has been in the medical device software development business quite a long time – nearly 30 years.  In that time, many clients have shared tales of prior outsourced projects that didn’t go so well.  Some common themes frequently show up when a project fails.  These 8 questions are intended to smoke out early warning signs.  By pressing for satisfactory answers to these 8 crucial questions, you’ll sidestep potential problems, and instead enjoy a successful vendor relationship and project outcome.

Q1: Does the provider offer a stable staff of sufficient size?

A key thing to know is whether the firm has the critical mass to fully support your project throughout the development cycle.  Smaller firms (staff less than 10) frequently find it difficult to support multiple client projects and meet deadlines.

Critical mass is also important in terms of what we call “bench strength” — having experts in several specific technical areas.  Larger firms are able to tap these internal experts as needed to expedite your project.
