Quick answers to the most commonly asked questions
How much does it cost to build an app ?
It can vary greatly from project to project. The development time depends on a number of factors including complexity, integrations and features. Typically it take 1-2 months to develop an app from scratch.
Do you offer complete solutions ?
Should I develop the app for iPhone, Android or Windows?
The most popular mobile platforms today are iPhone/iPad (iOS) and Android. We have the skills to develop for Windows devices, but the reality is that this need is declining due to Microsoft discontinuing its product. At the end of the day, it's your call but you should know that an app written for one platform has to be rewritten for another platform as they are completely different languages.
In most cases, we recommend developing apps for iOS and Android due to their dominance in the NZ market. If you’re on a budget we can also offer a 'write once and target multiple devices platform', but that would depend on your requirements. We'll discuss the pros and cons of each approach so you can always be confident in getting the best outcome.
Do I need to maintain the app myself after its built?
Not necessarily, we can do this for you if you don't have the resources at your disposal. Have a chat with your sales rep if you want to explore this in more detail.
What resources do I need on my side?
This depends a lot on the project. During design, we will need access to people who have a detailed understanding of your business and what you are trying to achieve. The best-run projects have an assigned project manager / technical product manager who understands what is to be achieved, has decision-making authority and can coordinate resources and people within your company. We will need access to documentation or people with a knowledge of the internal systems we are accessing. We also may require someone to supply content and imagery. Lastly, you may need to set aside time for testing, whether that is with customers or internal testing. We will support you through the whole process.
