Software Developer and IT related Contracts
Do you have a great idea, and are you hiring a software developer or IT person to help you create your own application, mobile app or software program? If so, it is absolutely critical that you protect your idea and your business from the start. Don’t rely on oral agreements and representations to protect you or your business assets. Get the right contract put in place so your ideas are not stolen or disclosed to other people without your permission. You’ll also want to ensure that the software is developed according to agreed upon and clearly stated deadlines. Details such as payments, due dates, royalties, ownership and confidentiality are all essential points to be negotiated and contracted. Do you have an agreement as to continued maintenance, upgrades, bug fixes and major updates? If something goes wrong, who will be held liable and for what?
If you don’t have the software developer sign the right contracts, you risk losing rights to your own idea or you could end up stuck with a developer who doesn’t meet deadlines and leaves you hanging, with hundreds or thousands of dollars of your money wasted.
Contact us today for a Software Development contract tailor made for your company. Protect your business and your idea. If you are currently working with a developer but do not have a written agreement as yet, we can assist.
