custom web apps grow your business.jpegGoogle Docs, Freshbooks, MailChimp— all of these web applications expedite day-to-day business functions. Rather than downloading software to a computer, users can complete small tasks such as create and edit spreadsheets and send e-mails from their browsers.

These standard applications may handle simple aspects of your company's workflow, but it's not likely they're helping you grow your business. Each product you use may work great separately, but you're not making the most out of your resources when data must be entered manually, or data must be entered in two different places, for example. This is why custom web applications are so vital in today's changing world. Here are just a few of the many corporate benefits of custom app development.

Flat Rate Vs Hourly Rate for Software Development

Posted by Donella Muzik on May 1, 2017 10:03:00 AM


A flat rate refers to an overall amount that a vendor might charge for a project and that amount will not change. Regardless of the time it takes to complete the project and the resources used, you’re expected to pay this rate. Conversely, if the contractor charges an hourly rate, you’re expected to pay that rate for each hour that the contractor works. Both rates can improve cost efficiency if you’re careful and choose wisely.

  • Flat Rates Are Easy to Budget and Track
  • Familiarity with Project Details is Key
  • Hourly Rates Are Sometimes Cheaper
  • Pricing Choice Might Be Out of Your Hands
  • Six of One, Half a Dozen of the Other
  • Other Pricing Options
