How do you help your clients in choosing the right yet profitable platform for app development?
We understand the business needs and scalability of the app first. And based on it we suggest going native / hybrid. Sometimes it all depends on the client’s budget as well.
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?
Hybrid has got some limitations, so it’s a good idea to go for a hybrid for small apps.
How do you scheme your pricing model? How do you fix your budget?
Fixed cost – When all the requirements are clear and the scope of work is well defined.
Time and Material – When the scope is partially defined and there are still chances of having midway changes or pause of work in the project. Mostly this approach is applied when the client wants to keep assigning different tasks based on their requirements and time.
Dedicated – When there is a multi-months project and we can just assign a developer dedicatedly to the project.
We do functional point estimation to arrive at a budget.
