The price of an App developed by Alster Limited depends on the software service package you want and the technicality of the App Concept. But most importantly, your budget and time frame of your project.
That is, in simple terms, the more complex your project concept, the more expensive it becomes. Customers with limited budget such as start-up or SMEs may choose our SaaS Solutions package.
SaaS stands for Software as a Service. That is, we develop software solutions for our customers but instead of the tradition upfront purchase of hefty price tag software, the customers buys the software through a Pay-as-You-Go service.
In SaaS, the customer pays are Sign Up fee upon which Alster Limited would develop and deploy the software for the customer. The customer would however, pay a periodic service charge for the software depending on the traffic on the App.
Ad Hock as the name implies refers to the more traditional form of software contracting where the customer explains the software concept he or she wants to build and Alster Limited on the other hand designs, programme and deploy the software or app within an agreed time frame.
On the subject on how it works, the customer and Alster Limited would both agree on a price for the project as well as all specifications and time lines. Upon receipt of 50% of the agreed sum, Alster Limited would quickly get to work on the software. The customer would be expected to pay half of the remaining 50% on completion of the project and then the remaining sum upon completion of all testing and evaluations and subsequent deployment of production version of the software.
It takes a minimum of 2 working days to design and host a simple website. Our systems analysts and designers are always on stand-by to complement the efforts of each other to provide secured solutions as early as possible.
More dynamic and complex web applications take more than time to complete however, not more than 2 months. Simple static websites may take longer than 2 working days to complete if the customer does not have content for the site. In such case, our marketing would collaborate with the technical team to build such solutions.
It takes a minimum of 10 working days to design and develop a mobile app. Our systems analysts, database engineers and designers coordinate with each other to produce the best solution for each aspect of the mobile app technology.
Very complex mobile app concepts may under exception circumstances require more than 10 working days but no more than 2 months to complete.
