Workflow Management App Cost Estimate

What is a workflow management app?

A workflow application is an automated, business process management tool that enables workers to create and manage processes (workflows) for completing common tasks. The app typically includes an editor interface that allows workers to visually design workflows using graphical icons. These icons represent the different steps in the workflow, such as assigning tasks to team members, approving changes to documents, or sending notifications when a process is complete. Workflow management apps, like business process management (BPM) apps, resemble project management and project collaboration apps. Workflow management apps help users to automate and track workflow between people or teams. Workflow software like WorkflowMax and TeamShare are examples of this app type. Examples of workflow management apps built with Crowdbotics:

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

A workflow 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 workflow 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 workflow management app price quotes from Crowdbotics:

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

A workflow management app usually takes 277 hours to build. However, a workflow management app can be built in as few as 67 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 workflow management apps build with Crowdbotics received the following hourly estimates:

How to successfully grow your workflow management application

A workflow management app has a strong focus on workflows that connect together different pieces of information in the cloud. This type of app is used by both individual users and large enterprises to manage tasks, projects, and other pieces of information in the cloud. A workflow management app can grow by making it easier for users to create new workflows or edit existing workflows, since this will encourage them to use the app more frequently.

Risks and challenges of building a workflow management application

A workflow management app must ensure that its users are properly trained to use the tool, that its users have access to the necessary resources to complete their work, and that management knows that their workers are using the tool properly. It is also advised to store user information in a secure manner so as to protect it from disclosure in the event of a data breach. If your app involves confidential or proprietary information, you must take measures to ensure that only authorized users can access it.
