In this article we will touch upon a very popular question — how much does a web application development cost for business? By this, we mean creating software for solving business problems, like CRM systems, programs for POS terminals, applications for tracking cars by GPS, task managers, WMS services, etc. All of these are programs for automating business processes that aim to help a business work more efficiently or make money by providing services.
In this post, rather than talking about development processes and other areas, such as website development and Progressive Web Application, we want to explore all types of web application development projects and their average cost.
Medium-sized and complex web applications cost estimation
Before we begin, let’s answer one simple question: what is the difference between medium-sized and complex projects?
The main difference lies in the timing and number of specialists. The complexity of the functionality doesn’t really matter unless you want to write your application using very rare language, which will raise the web development cost per hour by more than two zeros at the end.
You may wonder, why do we talk only about medium-sized and complex projects. What about the small ones? The answer is simple — we think that web application development doesn’t include small projects unless you decide to implement a two-functional MVP without its further development.
Medium-sized web applications
The duration of such projects is between 3 and 6 months. The project team would consist of no more than 4 people. Also keep in mind, is that any medium-sized project can easily grow into a large complex project. Let’s take an example of our system development for GPS tracking project outlined in the linked post. This project included subsequent integration with ERP Sage 300.
In that case, our team developed the following:
But when the team decided to expand the functionality and integrate the system with the Sage 300, the project moved to the category of complex web applications.
In this way, we can conclude that:
Complex web applications
Such projects involve SAAS or web application development, as well as its integration with other services. The development of such projects usually takes 5 months or more.
To understand the scale of such projects, you can explore some of our cases:
In this way, we can conclude that:
There are many other details that will determine the exect costs and timelines of your project. For instance, some of our projects last over three years.
We hope to answer your question about the custom web application development cost. Now let’s share a few tips from our experience.
