Mobile App Development: Is Outsourcing Worth It?

One of the growing tools that businesses are using to reach more customers is the Mobile App. Mobile App usage, and in turn Mobile App revenue, has been increasing year over year since the introduction of the iPhone in 2007. According to recent studies, Mobile Apps are expected to generate a record $189 billion in 2020.  Is your business positioned to take advantage of this rapidly growing opportunity?

We have helped various clients across different business platforms reach more customers than ever by giving them a customized Mobile App.  Each of our Mobile Apps is created with the individual business in mind and this results in a finished product that is a representation of everything you want your business to convey.

The next step after deciding your business would benefit from a Mobile App is probably deciding how to get it developed.  Many companies have positions in their company specifically for Mobile App development and other similar projects.  This can be convenient because it keeps all aspects of operation in house, but is it the best solution for your company overall?

There are multiple factors to consider including cost, quality, time to market, and control over the process, among others.  For many, the single most important factor will be the cost.

Developing a Mobile App requires more than just a developer who knows how to bring your ideas to life in a functional product. A successful Mobile App will also need a Mobile Designer to craft your ideas into an intuitive, easy-to-use experience, a Database Administrator to manage accompanying data in the cloud, as well as a Project Manager to ensure that all of these various positions all stay on track and in communication with each other.  The overall cost for these positions can quickly add up.

Average Salary to Set Up and Run Mobile App Project:

  • Project Manager – $70,000+
  • Mobile app developer – $70k – $100k
  • Database Admin: $60k – $80k
  • Mobile Designer: $60k – $80K

Total Cost for Mobile App Development Salaries = $260k – $330k

On the low end, if we use a 52 week Calendar Year as our timeframe, $260k breaks down to $5000 per week.  $330k breaks down to almost $6500 per week.  This does not take into account any other financial factors such as bonuses, office equipment, test devices, required software, or the eventual App maintenance that will be required after the app has launched. Larger, cross-platform mobile apps typically require multiple app developers working in tandem!

For a fraction of both those weekly estimates, you can hire our SolutionBuilt team!
