Software Development Agreement is an agreement whereby the developer agrees to design, develop, sell and maintain the software for the client. The developer agrees to create the software based on the specifications and the timeline specified by the buyer. Generally, software specifications and the timeline/milestones are added as a schedule to the agreement.
This agreement is entered between the software developer and the buyer / client buying the software. It is drafted in favour of the Developer.
