How much does it cost to build bespoke software?

B13 Technology

Software-1

Making software and mobile applications accessible and affordable for SMEs, start-ups and entrepreneurs is at the heart of what we do.

We understand that projects involving software development can be daunting, not just in complexity but also in terms of the time and money involved.  B13 Technology are happy to guide you through this process to minimise your risk and develop a custom digital product that meets your desired outcome and expectations.  We will work with your business to define and prioritise the requirements of your new digital solution through our Venture Mapping process before we begin to develop the first iteration of your web platform or app. Our approach means you can be confident from the start that you know what product will be delivered and be clear about the costs and risks involved.

Some of the common considerations that impact the cost of software development

  • The number and complexity of the features required. For example, does the platform require login functionality, individual user profiles, the ability to make in-app purchases, language options (one language, bilingual, multilingual) or control panels to manage data and push notifications. 
  • Design of the user interface (UI). Simple designs will cost less than a bespoke design
  • The programming languages being used to build your solution
  • Infrastructure and hosting requirements plus related costs
  • The length of time it will take to develop your digital solution
  • The size and skill level of the development team required
  • Integrations into existing systems or websites
  • The number of design and development sprints needed to deliver to your functionality and UI requirements
  • Ongoing maintenance through an extended warranty period

How much does it cost to build software?

We have experience of building software for a range of industries and for a variety of purposes.  Budgets range from £10,000 - £50,000. Creating software is a bespoke process at B13 Technology so there is no one fixed price for an ‘off-the shelf’ solution.  Instead our approach is to determine your requirements and priorities through Venture Mapping before outlining the costs and development roadmap based on your needs.
