Appointment Scheduler App Cost Estimate

What is an appointment scheduler app?

An appointment scheduler application is a web or mobile application that enables users to book, schedule, and view appointments. The app may include features for creating appointment requests, managing existing reservations, viewing schedules, and viewing work calendars. Appointment scheduler applications are similar to most other scheduling apps, such as project management apps, task management apps, and time tracking apps. Popular appointment scheduling applications include Calendly, Acuity Scheduling, TimeTrade, and Doodle. Examples of appointment scheduler apps built with Crowdbotics:

What is the typical cost to build an appointment scheduler app?

An appointment scheduler 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. An appointment scheduler 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 appointment scheduler app price quotes from Crowdbotics:

How long does it take to build an appointment scheduler app?

An appointment scheduler app usually takes 222 hours to build. However, an appointment scheduler app can be built in as few as 133 hours, or in as many as 400 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 appointment scheduler apps build with Crowdbotics received the following hourly estimates:

How to successfully grow your appointment scheduler application

An appointment scheduler app can grow by targeting a specific type of user and providing them with an easy way to book appointments. Appointment scheduler apps are popular because they make it easy for people to schedule appointments without having to call or email businesses directly. These types of apps also provide value by allowing users to see reviews about the businesses that they are considering.

Risks and challenges of building an appointment scheduler application

Appointment scheduler apps face the same general risks as other time-sensitive apps. You will need to consider how your users will be notified of appointments and whether users can reschedule or cancel appointments.
