Human Resources App Cost Estimate

What is a human resources app?

A human resources (HR) application is a web, mobile, or desktop application that enables employees to view and manage their employment information. HR apps typically include interfaces for viewing job descriptions, managing vacation time/sick days, requesting leave, accessing benefits information, and updating contact information. HR apps have much in common with workplace productivity apps, such as project management apps and collaboration apps. Some of the most popular HR applications today are Workday, ADP, SuccessFactors, and SAP SuccessFactors. Examples of human resources apps built with Crowdbotics:

What is the typical cost to build a human resources app?

A human resources 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 human resources 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 human resources app price quotes from Crowdbotics:

How long does it take to build a human resources app?

A human resources app usually takes 231 hours to build. However, a human resources app can be built in as few as 133 hours, or in as many as 333 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 human resources apps build with Crowdbotics received the following hourly estimates:

How to successfully grow your human resources application

HR apps are focused on job hunting and recruiting. These apps can grow and scale rapidly by demonstrating that they provide a high level of value for a specific type of user. They also need to be able to show that they understand the needs of job hunters and recruiters in their industry, so the app’s value proposition should match the target user’s needs as closely as possible. In addition, HR apps need to be able to identify qualified job candidates.

Risks and challenges of building a human resources application

A human resources app faces legal risks related to the handling of employee data, privacy concerns over collecting sensitive information, and compliance with federal employment laws. It is recommended that your human resources application leverage the secure storage APIs provided by platforms like Google Cloud Platform and Amazon Web Services to ensure that your application complies with all relevant regulations.
