Business Dashboard App Cost Estimate

What is a business dashboard app?

A business dashboard application is a web, mobile, or desktop application that displays data and metrics that help managers monitor the performance of their businesses. Most business dashboards include features such as stock tickers, temperature graphs, sales reports, and geographic maps. Dashboard apps are similar to other business-related monitoring apps like project management apps, fundraising apps, and retail inventory management apps. Popular examples of dashboard apps include QuickBooks Online, Freshbooks, and Mint. Examples of business dashboard apps built with Crowdbotics:

What is the typical cost to build a business dashboard app?

A business dashboard app usually costs about $37,500 to build. However, the total cost can be as low as $25,000 or as high as $50,000. A business dashboard app with a low number of features (also known as a minimum viable product, or MVP) will be more affordable than an app that includes all intended functionality. For example, here are some previous business dashboard app price quotes from Crowdbotics:

How long does it take to build a business dashboard app?

A business dashboard app usually takes 167 hours to build. However, a business dashboard app can be built in as few as 133 hours, or in as many as 200 hours. The exact timeline mostly depends on how complicated your specific app is. As a general rule, it will take longer if you require highly custom designs, niche features, complex logic, or non-standard release platforms. For example, some previous business dashboard apps build with Crowdbotics received the following hourly estimates:

How to successfully grow your business dashboard application

A business dashboard app focuses on the needs of a specific type of user, such as a salesperson or office manager. The main focus of a business dashboard app is to provide its users with a streamlined view of relevant information about their organization. It’s common for a business dashboard app to integrate data from multiple sources into one interface, and to include features that automate manual processes for users. Business dashboard apps also need to provide an easy-to-use interface that makes it easy to access frequently used functionality.

Risks and challenges of building a business dashboard application

A business dashboard app can face legal and reputational risks associated with the violation of privacy or data security laws. Apps that provide a dashboard to internal employees should take strong measures to ensure that dashboard information is only available to the intended users. It is also recommended that you take extra precautions when storing sensitive user data, such as focusing on secure encryption methods, monitoring for security breaches, and providing users with strong privacy settings.
