Fantasy sports business is demanding and needs expert development. Here’s why you need to hire only experts.
A billion dollar industry often attracts startups and entrepreneurs along with investors.

For startups, value for money is crucial. However, when you look at the overall value for fantasy sports application development, you will realize that scalability makes or breaks your business. A generic application development company or a freelance developer may not have the in-depth understanding of how fantasy sports apps work. As a result, when you are served poor quality, you may not be able to gauge the overall loss instantly. It’s only when more users start to use your app and you have more data to handle, than you realize the importance of scalability. Experts, on the other hand, will talk about scalability on the first day of the project commencement. This gives you an idea of the measure of scalability you need for your application for now and for future.
Fantasy sports users are some of the most demanding customers in the world. After videos, it’s gaming that engages the world’s Internet users most. Therefore, you must not ignore the onboarding process and overall user experience that the users get upon logging on to your application for the first time. Apart from a great feel and design of the product, it’s important that your UX and UI are in perfect sync with the theme and type of users. Fantasy sports application development experts, due to their varied portfolio, are able to apprise you with these considerations initially. Together you can plan and short-list the design and UI wireframes for a giving your customers a great first impression. Users spend 42 minutes a day on a fantasy sports app on an average, so make it count.

When you launch a fantasy sports product, your data will only multiply at various levels. On top of that, you need to provide live data feeds of the progressing fantasy games along with the data of the actual leagues, championships or cups. This kind of data compartments need a solid backend and a great scheme of data feeds. Since experts have handled fantasy sports products earlier, they are able to create a dependable scheme for data handling and live feeds, unlike generic app development companies or freelance developers.
