Data Visualization App Cost Estimate

What is a data visualization app?

A data visualization application is an online or mobile application that displays information in the form of graphs, charts, diagrams, and other visual representations. Data visualization apps typically enable users to create custom graphs or charts by entering their own data points and selecting the type of graph based on their data set. Data visualization apps are similar to data collection apps, data storage apps, and automation apps. One of the most popular examples of a data visualization app is Tableau. Examples of data visualization apps built with Crowdbotics:

What is the typical cost to build a data visualization app?

A data visualization 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 data visualization 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 data visualization app price quotes from Crowdbotics:

How long does it take to build a data visualization app?

A data visualization app usually takes 210 hours to build. However, a data visualization app can be built in as few as 13 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 data visualization apps build with Crowdbotics received the following hourly estimates:

How to successfully grow your data visualization application

The primary growth strategy for a data visualization app is to attract users from other domains. A data visualization app typically needs to offer a high level of value in order to attract new users from other apps that are not used for data visualization. These apps should classify their users into different segments, and leverage marketing tactics like email marketing to target a segmented group of users with a special offer. For example, an app might offer 30% off its premium subscription package to users who have never tried the app before.

Risks and challenges of building a data visualization application

A data visualization app will come with the same type of regulatory and legal risks as any other app. It is also at risk for displaying inaccurate information due to a lack of internal quality control mechanisms, which can lead to both negative PR and loss of credibility. Therefore it is important that data visualization apps have process controls in place to ensure that all data is validated before being displayed to users.
