What to look for when selecting a website development company in Kenya.
Is it that critical?
Yes, it is. That’s the simple answer. Choosing a development company is not as simple as it appears. We can compare the development of a website to the construction of a house. If you hire the wrong foundation specialists who in turn use the wrong materials, the entire project will be a fail and you will be disappointed. If you search “website development companies in Kenya” you will find several development companies listed. Look for the following 5 qualities to ensure you find a perfect match.
Quality #1: They are compatible with you
You’re hiring a technology partner when you hire a website development company. Given that you are satisfied with their service and quality of work, this partner will most likely remain a part of your company for many years. Get to know the people you’ll be working with on a long-term basis. While the quality and effectiveness of their work are undoubtedly important, learn what they value, how they work, and how they treat their staff.
Quality #2: They have great Clutch reviews
The best way to find out about an IT company’s competence is from the reviews of their previous clients. For that, you can use the Clutch website. Clutch specializes in gathering feedback from IT companies clients’ around the globe. These reviews will give you insights into whether your future agency is favoured for projects similar to yours.

Quality #3: They have a great website
You can learn a lot more about the quality standards of website development companies by checking their overall digital presence. For that, you need to analyze their social media profile, website, and content. Pay attention to the website design, features and the quality of the content they publish. Their website design should be up-to-date. If the company does not follow the best practices, it might not be able to handle your project.
Quality #4: They are really good in communicating and collaborating
The communication skills of a website development company are a vital aspect. If there are any gaps in the communication process, your project can go haywire. Before signing the contract, contact the company and assess their communication culture with the following questions:
•Will the team be available on multiple communication channels like phone, e-mail, Video calls etc.?
•Who will be the point of contact for your concerns, queries, feedback, etc.?
•What would be the response time for your queries?
Quality #5: They are trustworthy
The most important one of them all. Trust is critical, as this is not just a company you are hiring to do any job. This is the company that is responsible for designing and developing what will become the face of your company. You are handing them your image and reputation and allowing them the platform to show it to the world. This web development company is also going to have all of the backdoor access to your website. The last thing any company needs is someone untrustworthy, holding the keys to their business.
