Consulting App Cost Estimate

What is a consulting app?

A consulting application is a web or mobile application that enables users to post projects and view bids from potential service providers. Consulting apps typically include an interface for submitting project proposals, as well as a dashboard for viewing recent activity, managing billing records, and analyzing the performance of all consultants. Consulting apps often share features with other project management and collaboration apps, such as social media management apps and employee scheduling apps. Popular consulting applications include Wrike, Basecamp, Asana, and Slack. Examples of consulting apps built with Crowdbotics:

What is the typical cost to build a consulting app?

A consulting app usually costs about $37,500 to build. However, the total cost can be as low as $35,000 or as high as $40,000. A consulting 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 consulting app price quotes from Crowdbotics:

How long does it take to build a consulting app?

A consulting app usually takes 500 hours to build. However, a consulting app can be built in as few as 467 hours, or in as many as 533 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 consulting apps build with Crowdbotics received the following hourly estimates:

How to successfully grow your consulting application

A consulting app can grow by providing tools that enable users to conduct an analysis of their own needs. When a user is ready to purchase a consulting package, he or she will need to undergo a process of self-evaluation and analysis before making the decision to purchase. Consulting apps can also provide educational content and guides that show users how to conduct this evaluation on their own.

Risks and challenges of building a consulting application

An app that provides business consulting services may be subject to review by state regulatory boards, especially if it is providing advice related to investments or financial planning. Before creating an app for this purpose, you will want to ensure that it is fully registered and licensed. The app should also include mechanisms for user feedback and identification verification.
