There has been significant penetration of technology into the Ugandan workspace in recent years as more companies continue to realize the importance of technology in improving their bottom lines. The use of technology does not just increase profits but it also increases productivity by automating mundane routine processes that do not add much value yet are integral to the success of the business as a whole. The result is that more and more companies are investing heavily in the development of software that is capable of improving and streamlining work.

In addition, more and more software development companies have been cropping up in the country in order to cover the increased demand for their services. Unfortunately, very few of these companies are actually capable of delivering the results that they promise. So how can you identify the best software companies in Uganda?

One of the most important factors to consider when choosing software development companies in Uganda is experience and portfolio. Experience, in this context, does not just refer to the number of years over which the company has been operational but also covers the work that they have done in that time. To illustrate this point think of two companies, one that has been operational for 5 years while the other has only been around for 2 years. Now, what if in the 2 years that the second company has been operational they have successfully completed three times the number of projects completed by the first company. In this case, it would be accurate to refer to the second company as the more experienced of the two despite the short time over which it has been operational. The portfolio here refers to the kinds of projects that the company has managed to complete successfully in the past. Always look for a company whose portfolio has projects similar to what you want to be done for you.
