Don’t over­pay to get
your soft­ware built

Are you look­ing to save costs, cre­ate new li­cens­ing rev­enue and en­gage your cus­tomers bet­ter than your com­peti­tors ever could?

Or maybe you’re launch­ing a new prod­uct with plans to go global.

Either way, the only thing hold­ing you back is hav­ing a prob­lem that soft­ware can solve.

The soft­ware & app de­vel­op­ment in­dus­try is tricky to nav­i­gate. And it’s made harder by the de­vel­op­ment com­pa­nies with­hold­ing their prices. The last thing you want is an in­voice 10x more than what you ex­pected.

After all, you just want to know how much it costs to build your ap­pli­ca­tion.

We think that’s pretty rea­son­able.

So we’ve de­cided to pull back the cur­tain and show you what it costs to build an app.

To start, let’s take a look at the av­er­age salary of a soft­ware de­vel­oper in Australia. Indeed AU puts this fig­ure at $92,000. Every or­gan­i­sa­tion needs to add on su­per­an­nu­a­tion (9%), over­heads (30%) and a mar­gin (30%).

Now, we’re look­ing at a per de­vel­oper cost of $155,000. But it’s un­rea­son­able to think an en­tire ap­pli­ca­tion can be built by one per­son. Let’s ac­count for dif­fer­ent dis­ci­plines like a prod­uct de­signer (to con­sider the user ex­pe­ri­ence), a pro­ject man­ager (to keep stake­hold­ers aligned) and a sec­ond de­vel­oper (for cre­ative prob­lem solv­ing and re­dun­dancy).

In the Software Pricing Guide we’ll show you what adding these dis­ci­plines means from a weekly cost per­spec­tive and how to make sure you’re not over­pay­ing.

No two pro­jects are cre­ated equal. The cost will vary de­pend­ing on whether you’re cre­at­ing a proof of con­cept, a min­i­mum vi­able prod­uct or a slightly larger build through prod­uct de­vel­op­ment. You’ll learn how these three types of de­vel­op­ment pro­jects im­pact the over­all es­ti­mated cost.

Not only will you be shown the steps and costs as­so­ci­ated, you’ll also learn what it’s cost oth­ers to build their ap­pli­ca­tions.

WorkingMouse is an award-win­ning Australian soft­ware and app de­vel­op­ment agency head­quar­tered in Brisbane. We’ve ad­vised count­less busi­nesses on how they can lever­age tech­nol­ogy to re­duce their costs, scale their sys­tems and cre­ate a more en­gaged cus­tomer base than ever be­fore.
