Case Management App Cost Estimate

What is a case management app?

A case management application is a web, mobile, or desktop application that helps users manage customer service issues. Case management apps usually include integrations with popular CRM systems and support ticketing systems to automate data collection and allow customers to view their own history of interactions with the company. Case management apps also enable users to share knowledge about cases with other employees on the same team. Case management apps are similar to other SaaS apps with a focus on helping professionals work more efficiently, including productivity apps, project management apps, and expense tracking apps. Popular case management applications include Salesforce and Zendesk. Examples of case management apps built with Crowdbotics:

What is the typical cost to build a case management app?

A case management 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 case management 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 case management app price quotes from Crowdbotics:

How long does it take to build a case management app?

A case management app usually takes 467 hours to build. However, a case management app can be built in as few as 267 hours, or in as many as 667 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 case management apps build with Crowdbotics received the following hourly estimates:

How to successfully grow your case management application

A case management app typically requires a large number of users in order to be successful. The app needs to provide a high level of value for users in order to compete with established apps like Clio. In addition, the app needs to have a good referral program and strong marketing tactics that will attract new users. Most importantly, the app must provide a unique value proposition beyond what is offered by existing apps (for example, by providing tools specific to certain types of clients).

Risks and challenges of building a case management application

Case management apps face risks related to the HIPAA compliance of the application, legal liability, and the security of sensitive patient information. It is advisable to consult with your local attorney to determine the scope of applicable laws governing the case management app, and you may also want to consider establishing a data privacy policy for your app that complies with all applicable laws.
