How do you help your clients in choosing the right yet profitable platform for app development?
All the businesses have different needs when it comes to developing an app, so choosing the right yet profitable platform totally depends on business goals, budgets, and even resources. However, when it comes to app development, Android, and iOS development dominate the entire market.
Holding several years of experience, we delve deeper into the business’s requirements and thoroughly understand their target audience. We learn business’s strengths, weaknesses, and all the considerable things to help our clients choose the right yet profitable platform for either Android or iOS development or both, and give them the multiple options to choose from.
Which would you suggest for a successful and profitable business progression, Native or hybrid apps? How do you define the factors that influenced you to make this choice?
As mentioned earlier, depending on the business-specific needs and how much they are willing to spend in mobile app development, we suggest and help businesses choose the right platform.
When it comes to native and hybrid development approaches, both have their strengths and weaknesses. Based on factors like price, development cycle, expected outcomes, and others, businesses choose between native and hybrid development.
Native app development is highly suggested for a successful and profitable business progression because it gives an incredible user experience compared to hybrid app development. On the other hand, hybrid apps or cross-platform apps win when it comes to cost savings and faster development cycles.
How do you scheme your pricing model? How do you fix your budget?
Our pricing model is quite flexible, and we generally lean towards the client to support them and grow together. However, the project starts with an upfront.
Hybrid Fixed Payment Model
We call it hybrid because the cost and timeline for a complete project are locked in very initial i.e., fixed. We break the project parts in milestones and plan payment terms either based on a percentage of development finished or on completion of the milestone.
Time & Material Basis
This one is fascinating for some of our customers, especially those who are enterprises and looking for our team as their extended team. This model mostly suits agencies with a product manager at their place to manage the dedicated resource and get their job done. This model is 40% cost-effective than the Hybrid one, and customers are responsible for all the deliverables. This model enables clients to enjoy the flexibility to increase or reduce the team strength according to their project requirements.
When it comes to budget fixation, we offer clients an MVP version and adapt it to clients’ business needs and possibilities accordingly.
