Software development consultant offer many services, including analyzing businesses and their software, recommending developments, and implementing software solutions. Before signing an agreement, the client and consultant will sit down and go over all the services that will be offered. Compensation for these services will also be gone over and included in the agreement so there are no surprises for either party. Furthermore, the agreement includes provisions that cover confidentiality, termination options, non-compete, and the independent contractor’s status. This document becomes legally binding upon the parties once they have signed the last page of the agreement.
