2021 marks the third year in a row Wave Digital has been rated Melbourne’s Top App Development Company on the Clutch Leaders Matrix. And with 20 five star Google reviews, it is great to know we are doing something right!
Why Wave Digital is ranked Melbourne's Top App Developer
At Wave, we attribute our rating to a few factors:
- We have a very high quality team that focus not just on tech but on people
- We are committed to employing only local staff which translates to great quality and great communication (come in and meet them all in person at our head office in North Melbourne)
- We provide honest advice and are clear with clients about what to expect
- We stand for something – we want to use technology to make lives better
- Our clients are different and we tailor our service and process to suit them, whether a Startup, Government agency or Business
- We have over 20 years experience doing what we love and do best - creating custom iPhone, Android and web apps
Here’s a bit more about why we are celebrating our ranking from an independent ratings and review agency.
Melbourne’s changing App Developer industry
Since Wave Digital was founded in 2000, mobile app development is no longer a niche part of Melbourne’s tech industry. It’s a mainstay. And the current market reflects this. With relatively low barriers to entry, new app development companies are appearing monthly and the industry is crowded.
Choosing an app developer has therefore become a lot harder. This has been made worse by the fact that with company collapses and the use of cheap, low quality offshore developers, clients often start from a base of mistrust. The industry, unfortunately, has a bad reputation.
Choosing an App Developer
Finding a reputable app developer is therefore pretty tricky. At Wave Digital, we suggest those looking to build an app, review an app developer’s website. Look at their case studies and client testimonials and ask about the design and technical experience of the team. Consider the length of time they have been in the industry.
If buying local is important, find out where their designers and developers are located. Some Melbourne developers offshore their app developer team while keeping design in-house. Can your app developer tell you exactly which designer and app developer(s) will be working on your project? We can and we can even provide details of their specific experience relevant to your project.
You can also supplement your research with the findings of independent ratings and reviews platforms. This is where an organisation like Clutch fits in.
Clutch and their ratings methodology
Clutch are a premier ratings and reviews platform for B2B service providers. It was established to help organisations find service providers with the quality and experience they needed to tackle their project. The challenge – at the time, market insight for businesses was limited and disorganised. There was no one place to find client testimonials, case studies and data. Paid endorsements and sponsored guest posts also made finding credible information difficult.
The team at Clutch built a solution to tackle this challenge. It is a platform of in-depth client reviews gathered by Clutch analysts either online or over the phone. Each review is structured to seek information on the cost of the work completed, its quality, areas for improvement, and several other factors. These reviews are then combined with the latest industry and company data to produce a score on which companies in the same industry can be compared. This analysis along with the review information are intended to equip businesses with the information they need to make informed decisions about who to approach for their project.
What does this mean for our clients
At Wave Digital, we pride ourselves on our design and app development capability. Technology is at our core. However people are at our heart. This means we are committed to improving the lives of those using our digital products as well as going over and above for our clients. We want our clients to be happy with the outcome, and the journey too.
