Application creation steps

Let's consider in more detail the stages of application development. Our team performs a full range of works:

1. We analyze competitors

It is important to offer the audience an application that will compare favorably with competing products. Before compiling the terms of reference, we analyze the design, structure, functionality of programs of a similar orientation. We take into account the mistakes of competitors in order to provide users with more opportunities.

2. Analyzing a niche

When developing an application, we take into account business goals and user needs. We make original decisions in design and functionality, but we act taking into account the trends that are relevant for a particular area.

3. Writing a technical task

TOR includes a detailed description of the structure, design, functionality, content of the mobile application. Each nuance is discussed in detail, agreed with the client and fixed in the terms of reference so that no unforeseen situations arise during the development process.

4. We create a unique UX / UI design of the interface

We follow the principles of Material design, work in the Android Studio integrated development environment, and ensure that the application strictly complies with Google requirements.

5. Designing

We carry out front-end and back-end development, create an administrative panel to manage the application. We inform the client about the intermediate results of the design, provide an opportunity to control and track the progress of the project.

6. Testing the app and publishing it on marketplaces

We check the operation of the program, identify errors, and promptly eliminate them. By the time of placement, we guarantee its well-coordinated work and the absence of failures. Our applications comply with the requirements of Google, so they are moderated without delay.

Cost of developing an app for online store

How much does it cost to create an application for an online store? This is one of the first questions we hear from clients. The cost of developing an application is calculated individually after analyzing the terms of reference and depends on many factors:

Application purpose Application purpose

What tasks should the program solve, for what purpose it is created and how much it affects the business.

Functional complexity Functional complexity

What options should be available to users, whether it is necessary to provide for further expansion and scaling of the product.

Design requirements Design requirements

Whether it is necessary to use complex animated objects, 3D graphics, unique design elements.

Time of work Time of work

How quickly you need to implement the project, how many employees need to be involved in the development.

Complex applications are created by a team of experienced specialists, each of whom takes on a separate type of work. The cost of such products increases, but the investment pays off with a high-quality result - the client receives an application that helps to run a business and makes a profit. But not always there is a need for significant costs. For many tasks, simple budget solutions with a minimum set of functions are sufficient. Which option do you need and how much will the development cost? Send a request, we will make a preliminary calculation and orient the price.

    Automatic pricing and warehouse

    For online stores, we can develop the possibility of automated work with a large volume of commodity items.

    • Price calculation. The functionality of the mobile application allows you to set up automatic pricing depending on the exchange rate, the selected margin, or other factors.
    • Loading products. With the help of the parser, we can automatically download a large range of products and, if necessary, update the catalog without time-consuming manual operations.
    • Availability in stock. The system can track the quantity of each commodity item in the warehouse so that the availability information is always up to date.

    Admin panel and API

    The store you will manage through a convenient administrative panel (dashboard). The tool allows you to perform any actions with products, manage settings, process orders, work with content. The integration of a mobile application with an existing product accounting program or an Internet site we perform using the API. For example, the restaurant food delivery application we can synchronize with an existing automation system that is used in the establishment.

    Communication with buyers

    Application users can get feedback via online chat – ask a question, consult, or report a technical problem. For the seller, this is a great opportunity to quickly respond to requests, and understand the current needs of the audience in order to improve the service.
