What is included

Software development occurs when a client hires a consultant, either an individual or a company, to create software specifically for their use.  There are two main aspects to this transaction: the consultancy and the software development.

The consultancy is no different from consultancy in other types of expert services and the precedents relating to consultancy agreements can be used.

The development of software involves the creation of intellectual property to order. The software development agreement handles all aspects of the process from the definition and specification of the client’s specifications through development and testing to delivery of the end product.  The scope of service to be supplied by the developer and ownership of the new intellectual property created are precisely defined in the agreements.

What is a Software Development Agreement

A Software Development Agreement is a legally binding contract between a software developer (or development company) and a client that outlines the terms and conditions under which custom software will be developed, delivered, and maintained.
