  • 1 Why does my business need an on-demand app?

    On-demand apps directly connect customers with service providers. As a business owner, you need an on-demand app to increase your availability and transparency for your customers.

  • 2 How much does it cost to develop an on-demand service app?

    Cost definitely depends on the size of your feature list. Based on a $40 hourly rate (average rate of on-demand app development in Eastern Europe), costs start at:

    $8,000 for a simple app

    $32,000 for medium complexity

    For complex projects, the time-and-material model applies. Client pays after each Sprint based on the scope of work completed.
