Mobile App Development Stages for Service Industry

Pre-analysis

We examine company performance and its business processes and the algorithm for customer order fulfillment. We analyze the peculiarities of the target audience, its requests, and needs. We observe competitors’ similar applications to do our best for creating a better product.

Terms of References and a Contract

Based on the results of the audit, we develop the structure of the mobile application, determine the list of functions, and formulate design requirements. We fix all this in detail in the terms of references. After approval of the terms of reference, we conclude an agreement and get started developing.

UX/UI Design Development

The designer creates a unique catching interface that is easy to use. While developing the design, we adhere to the principles of UX / UI so that the application will be not only beautiful but also comfortable for the audience.

Programming

We carry out front-end and back-end development of the user part and the admin panel. If necessary, we synchronize the application with the site or the accounting program using the API.

Testing

We test the finished product for errors. We find the causes and fix problems so that the application works smoothly and without failures after launch.

Publication, Promotion and Support

We publish the application on the App Store and Play Market, optimize its page and prepare for promotion on request. We launch advertising and other methods of promotion. We provide technical support services and release updates as necessary.

Estimation of Apps Development Cost

Creating an application for a beauty salon, dry cleaning or car service is a multi-stage process that includes design, programming and product testing. The complexity of work on each stage affects the app’s development cost.

Structure and Functionality Structure and Functionality

The price depends on what set of options customers can use, what options are available to administrators, what sections the application consists of and whether an online payment function is, and integration with the site, etc.

Design Complexity Design Complexity

An acceptable option for starting in many niches is an inexpensive interface without complex elements. The exclusive design is more expensive, but it helps to stand out from the competitors, attracts and keeps the audience’s attention.
