How the scoring process works
We've identified five key categories for software project assessment. We utilize a 1-5 rating system in order to give the potential buyer an idea of quality.
The main thing you buy when buying a software business. We have a scoring methodology that assesses maintainability and community standards as it applies to any codebase.
In best practice, software developers maintain high standards for automated testing. Beyond automated tests, we look at the quality control plan currently in place.
Source & Project Management.
It's critical to assess the quality of source control, this is your audit trail for everything that has happened. The project management system in place will provide great insights as to the product roadmap and defects.
Does the project make it easy for developers to submit work? Are there automatic quality control checks in place? How has the team been run?
Does the technology used to deploy the software scale correctly? What is the cost profile of the infrastructure? Is it managed in an automated way, or are there key-man risks?
