The app space is growing rapidly as companies look to digital products to drive efficiencies, open new commerce channels and create brand value. And we’re not just talking about companies in traditionally digital sectors. 

Digital products are increasingly a key strategic directive for organizations across a broad spectrum of industries, given the digital acceleration caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

So, who should you choose to develop your app? 

Don’t feel bad if you’re overwhelmed by options. There are a LOT of players in the digital app development space — and they all make a lot of the same claims.

To help you choose the best digital product development partner, consider this list of the country’s top app development companies.

Reviewing Canada’s top app development companies

There are critical qualities and capabilities you want in a development partner, and they go beyond technical chops. 

Here are the criteria that were used to identify top-performing Canadian firms:

  • The ability to understand business goals and not just technical development criteria. Every decision your development partner makes about your digital product should map back to your business strategy and goals. A disconnect between business goals and technical execution can result in the wrong product or unnecessary costs. 
  • Experience developing mission critical digital products that help businesses scale and grow. A partner should have verifiable work experience creating products that drive bottom-line results in revenue, scale, customer acquisition or other key performance indicators.
  • Experience with a variety of apps across mobile and web. What platforms are you building for? How will your product appear on iOS or Android? Is it mobile-friendly or mobile-only? You want a partner that can think through all the implications of what you’re building and how (and where) users will access it.
  • Experience with varying size clients, from startups to enterprise. Producing a proof-of-concept app for a startup brings significantly different considerations than, say, an enterprise-grade app. Ideally your partner has done both.
  • Customer feedback and third-party ratings. Strong third party and customer feedback is important in assessing the overall experience a development firm delivers.
