Codehesion was founded through our passion for software development and delivering exceptional products. We started Codehesion to create the perfect match between quality and cost of software. Our team has since launched many successful web apps and mobile apps. You can read more about it here.
Why build an app now?
Two major market forces are giving companies an opportunity window to get into the market with their own mobile or web apps. An app enables them to reach new customer segments or increase buy-in from existing clients.
- Social changes:
- Technology changes:
Proliferation of mobile devices in South Africa (aka devices in people's hands) is now sitting at 81,7% compared to 43.5% less than two years earlier - ICASA
Hybrid apps used to be subprime but they are matching native apps now (used by major players such as Facebook, Wix, Walmart, Instagram etc.) and this is decreasing development costs.
A moving opportunity window has opened up which enables companies to be 1st or 2nd to the market with their offering, competing with or disrupting large players in the market.
Best Quality and Value
For innovative businesses, who are dissatisfied with overly-priced corporate consultancies or the nightmares of dealing with off-shore companies, Codehesion provides local, quality, project-managed mobile and web app products. Unlike heavily resourced consultancy corporations or mismanaged off-shore projects, we provide a streamlined management structure ensuring you have direct access to developers and key stakeholders, and costs are kept low.
We use our streamlined management structure to provide the maximum quality at the lowest possible price as illustrated in the graph.
- At certain levels, throwing more resources and management onto a project does not improve quality, but only increases cost.
- However, certain quality structures and expertise need to be present on a project, else quality falls off a cliff and the project is likely to be unsuccessful before it is launched.
We are not a good fit for every company out there. Considerations of price-only on the one side, and overly resourced projects on the other side, are not our core focus. We focus on quality developers, the quality and longevity of your product, and competitive pricing.
Codehesion offers the following:
- Design of the entire app through wireframes (so everyone knows exactly what will be built)
- UI design to make it look beautiful (examples available on request)
- Visible project management and reviews on a weekly basis
- Access to developers and key stakeholders
- Continuous integration and testing of your app
- Maintenance and support
- And a long term focus
Also worth mentioning here is that you own all the code that we write for you, and we have had a 100% success record on our projects.
In terms of pricing:
will charge at least
R 1 500 000 to R 3 000 000
