It has to clearly set out the roles and duties of the parties in the development process. The ultimate goal for the software development has to be clear, milestones on the way there and a process for a flexible and legally watertight adjustment of goals.
It is important to agree on a fair remuneration for milestones reached within the development process. The software development agreement ensures that this crucial point is clear before starting the project. Furthermore it is highly important to agree on the rights of use of the developed software and parts of it – also whether the developer has interest in exploiting the developed product or parts of it.
You need to know what timeframe you realistically agree on for the development of the software. It is also crucial to leave space for adjustments of the contract, in case you agree to change the route towards your goal.
