Parangat Technologies Gets Another 5-Star Review on Clutch!

Currently, we are living in an era, where market researchers/analysts are constantly looking for robust and reliable app development companies in their focus industry to team up with. At Parangat Technologies, we take immense pride in backing up our claim that we are amongst the leading Blockchain App Development Companies in the market, today. As an evidence, Clutch.Co, a platform that provides verified ratings and reviews has honored us with 5 Star Reviews on its platform.

When businesses hear blockchain, they’ll often link it to cryptocurrencies and little else. However, blockchain technology is increasingly becoming a feasible solution for a wide range of sectors, including:

Deloitte published a 2019 report that surveyed more than 1,300 senior executives around the world at companies with an annual revenue of $500 million USD or more. Take a look at their findings below:

Based on their research, they’ve concluded that 53% of executives consider blockchain to be a critical investment and have placed in within their top 5 strategic priorities. This is a 10% increase from last year.

The blockchain landscape is maturing, which is why we’re excited to gain industry-wide recognition from Clutch, a B2B ratings and review platform that collects client feedback to rank companies!

Our ratings and reviews meter on Clutch

With 16 top-rated reviews and 5 Star Reviews Rating on Clutch, we’re also featured on its sister sites: The Manifest and Visual Objects.

The Manifest lists us as one of the top blockchain app development companies in India, and Visual Objects is a creative portfolio platform that shows our quality of work.

Of course, we don’t just specialize in Blockchain. Our team is well-versed in developing innovative mobile apps to support our clients’ brands.

For one of our recent projects, we partnered with a grocery delivery startup to develop a set of cross-platform iOS/Android applications. 

The three apps serviced our client’s users, drivers, and operational team. Once logged in, users could order groceries and pay for them digitally. A driver would then deliver the items, and everything could be monitored by the operational team.

Since our client was a startup, we also provided technical and marketing advice to set them up for success. Documenting all of our processes each step of the way helped keep everyone in the loop.

“Parangat Technologies is full of dedicated and interested workers. Their views and commitment to engaging are the best things about the company.” – Founder, Grocery Delivery App

In another project, we worked with a retail consulting firm to create an app for iOS, Android, and web. 

What made this solution so special was a custom interface that would adapt to each user’s industry. This brought a personal feel to our client’s services while still showing that they’re a capable, tech-savvy consultancy.

With the help of our apps, our client’s annual growth jumped from 10%–15% to about 30%, and metrics such as average spend per user improved across the board.

We’re incredibly thankful for our clients’ reviews on Clutch and are honored to have been a part of their success, whether that was through emerging blockchain technologies or effective, cutting-edge mobile apps.

A Complete Cost Guide For Entrepreneurs to Develop an App Like Tinder

A Complete Cost Guide For Entrepreneurs to Develop an App Like Tinder

There are many factors involved when considering the development of dating apps like Tinder App. There are various different aspects to the development of online dating apps that can beat Tinder dating app at its own game or at least present some competition.

Dating Applications - Parangat

Now when you start developing a dating app, it’s hard to ignore Tinder. Since it entered the market, it has created a niche out of nothing virtually on its own. There were a couple things mainly that stood out from the rest in making Tinder App a hit amongst youngsters and teenagers alike.

Tinder App - Parangat

Though it has great interactive design and a lot of functional features, it was its swipe gesture, geolocation feature and match on chat option that made it a hit. Now, it was as inventive as it was user-centered and practical. These are the things that you need to keep in mind as you go along the development of an app like tinder and will decide cost accordingly.

Large-Growing Global Dating Market - Parangat

Below is the list of factors that affect the development of your Android app especially one such like tinder and this invariably your costing estimate for the same.

1- App development Platform
2- Backend Development
3- Web Portal Development
4- Q/A testing

When you take into account the above various factors, you get a rough estimate of the cost that would be required to develop an app like Tinder. Further, based on your geolocation and the workforce that you hire and expertise that you require, you can zero in on the total amount.

App Development Platform

There are mainly two app platforms being used worldwide i.e. Android and iOS. Both very popular amongst its users for their own qualities and specifications. When it comes to launching an app like this, it becomes hard how to decide between choosing two platforms.

Ideally, iOS users generate more revenue but that’s compensated by a large number of Android users worldwide. When choosing between one platform or other, you can always choose to go with cross-platform/hybrid apps as compared to native apps to each platform.

Native vs Hybrid App Development - Parangat

Now, native apps take somewhat 200+ hours for android app development and around 250+ hours for an iOS app development. Hybrid apps need approx 350 hours of development time and require more technical expertise which means higher developer cost as well.

Backend Development

With heavy traffic and the database that an app like tinder requires, you must have a fully equipped admin backend technical panel if you are hoping to compete with tinder app on some level. It usually takes around 180-200 hours for an efficient developer to create it.

This backend panel will not help you track down analytics of app users, it will also help you analyze user behavior and latest trends. You will have to keep yourself upgraded constantly if you want to last in a long time.

Note: To make the best out your backend panel, make sure that it has feasible integration with several other tools such as google analytics etc.

Web Portal Development

If you’re aiming big then you need to have some source of your entire database or information repository to which users can refer to via some extension. The cost for developing such an extension depends upon the features that you choose to go with. Generally, it can take 100-150 hours of development time.

Q/A testing

Quality analysis for debugging purposes is one of the most important phases in which any flaws left whatsoever are detected and resolved before final release. Due to this stage being highly technical and through, it can take anything between 150-200 hours to be completed. That all is including the app deployment on the app store.

All the above things considered apart, there is also the matter of technical expertise required and resources needed. Most of all, everything can depend upon whether you outsource or hire a team to build your app.

These 4 are the general team members that you will need for a basic dating app:

  • 1 Graphic Designer for about 50+ hours with charges ranging from $25 per hour and above.
  • 1 UX designer for approx 100+ hours with the price per hour starting from $25 same as above.
  • 1/2 programmers depending upon your choice between native and hybrid apps costing $25 per hour and above for native developers and $35 and above for hybrid ones.
  • 1 Quality Analyst for about more than 100 hours with per hour cost starting from $15.

Note: Above is just a rough estimate for the cost of the team members and depends highly upon their technical expertise, experience and the country you are in. Hiring members in developed countries such as America can cost twice or thrice as much as hiring them from a country like India.

Calculating all the above hiring costs and number of hours required from initial development to app deployment, we can put an estimate between $30k-$50k for an average dating app with your basic features. Needless to say, the higher you go in terms of UI, UX, technical features etc, pricing increases with the same.

Factors to Consider While Enterprise App Development

Factors to Consider While Enterprise App Development

Enterprise application development has made essential the seamless flow of internal communication across various departments such that data-driven and factual decisions undertaken get even simpler. An enterprise mobile app is helpful for any business in solving specific business problems, improve the business processes, and make the involved employees more productive. It is such an important aspect these days that Mobile application development companies are professionals hired by big brands and business to either develop an enterprise application to bridge the gap between the potential users or buyers and the business provider or sellers. Else, develop apps that are intended to cater the internal business processes. Also, to stay abreast of the continuously changing technology, businesses are willingly entering the app development field. In today’s world, even a small, local vendor/store has become tech-savvy by owning a personal enterprise application for his business and prefers most of the transactions through Paytm, PhonePe or any other such popular payment gateways.

With all this one can easily understand the importance of building enterprise applications for a business and having them to ensure that the business is having a progressive growth. Not only this, but enterprise application also ensures that all resources are used to the optimum value and there is an efficient model of work. Now, as we have established the importance of an Enterprise app, let’s understand what actually an enterprise app is and how it is developed.

What is an Enterprise App?

An enterprise application as the name suggests is obviously a business application. The mostly used term is a big business application. In today’s corporate environment, enterprise applications are complex, mission-critical, scalable, component-based and distributed in terms of the purpose they serve. They may be deployed for use on a variety of platforms across the span of corporate networks, intranets, or the Internet itself. They are data-centric, purpose specific and user-friendly for best experience. Also the enterprise app must meet stringent requirements for security, administration, and proper regularised maintenance. In short, they are highly complex systems.

Look-and-Feel of An Enterprise Mobile App - Parangat

Above image shows an example of the look-n-feel of an enterprise mobile app. Such Enterprise App Development means satisfying hundreds or thousands of separate business requirements. One more concept increasing the complexity of the app is that every development decision you make to satisfy the specified requirement affects many other requirements and functionality of other purpose modules, often in ways that are quite difficult to understand or predict. As if this is not enough, one more complexity is that that the failure to meet any of these specified requirements can actually mean the failure of the entire project!

Enterprise App Development

Once the need of an enterprise app is understood and the perks of having one is explained, the next question that arises is, “How to Build an Enterprise Application?” The question seems straight-forward and a novice answer would be, by getting in the app development cycle and going through it. But it is not that simple. Most of the popular business and organisations hire professional Enterprise App Development companies to get their app build. This helps them have the app developed in proper time span and continue their focus on the business.

The key features that need to be kept in mind during enterprise app development are:

Best Practices for Enterprise App Development - Parangat
  1. Knowing and Targeting Your Audience: As an enterprize mobile app needs to solve the specific business problems or serve precise business needs. Hence, one must properly identify and define the business needs very clearly and accurately to accomplish predefined business/organization goals. It is of utmost importance to spend some time in identifying business needs and to have the mobile app customized according to the precise needs. This, in turn, can reduce the development cost to the testers and developers. Unless you are as famous as Facebook, Google, Microsoft or Instagram, don’t expect your app to have a tremendous appeal to a mass audience. This is one huge biggest mistake that mostly many businesses make with their enterprise app development project as they intend to target everyone and end up targeting none. Before you begin with developing or even planning to build your enterprise app you must have an exact idea of who your audiences are and what they desire from your app or what you want to serve. Once you are cent percent sure of your target audience and have them classified based on factors affecting your business aspects, it is easier for you to market and promote your app in the best way for the utmost output.
  2. Problem Solving:  How would your app offer value to lives and why should the target audience or your internal employee use it or even install your app and not one offered by your competitor? This is one of the most important questions that any business must answer while developing their enterprise mobile app in the first place. Your enterprise app solution should address a problem that is being faced by most of the users. If you can find an actual problem that hasn’t been solved by anyone else before, you have struck a gold mine!
  3. Security & Functionality: It is important for any business to understand the difference between consumer apps and enterprise apps. While both of them may seem to be the same from the user’s point of view, as a business it is of optimum necessity that you lay stress on the security and functionality of the business enterprise apps. Users are likely to install and use enterprise apps when they are subscribing to your business services or when they have the intention of doing business with you. In both these cases, your enterprise app needs to live up to the high expectations and serve the best interest of the user in terms of security of data, user experience and personal information of the user.
  4. Focusing on User Experience: Would you ever love driving an ultra-luxurious high tech vehicle that is very complicated to manoeuvre? Irrespective of your business brand value, your enterprise app is of as much value as the user experience it offers. One must have alpha and beta testing along with a closed group actual user feedback on the experience that your app offers. The enterprise app development process must be moulded as required by the feedback from the user.

Conclusion

These are the most basic steps that any enterprise app development process must consider to have the best app and ensure that it fulfils the enterprise goals. To have a top enterprise mobile app developed for the business, one optimum way is to use mobile app developer companies like Fluper.

Also one must remember that the business and user requirements and expectation are continuously changing. So the enterprise mobile app development services and a process must keep in mind that the process and their app need to be adapting and enhancing continuously.

How to Plan Your Budget for App Development

How to Plan Your Budget for App Development

Introduction:

When it comes to developing an app for the mobile platform, the budget can be a quite serious consideration. Depending upon a number of factors, the budget for app development can be initially broken down into separate entities.

Budget Separation for Aapp Development - Parangat

Starting from scoping the market to cater to the needs of its potential users, to the final launch and then further marketing of the app. This process can be quite as vigorous as developing a business plan. To make this easier for you, we have divided into multiple stages each covering one step at a time:

1- Requirement Analysis
2- App Development Platform Selection
3- Outsourcing vs Inbuilt team
4- Integrated Features & Functional Analysis
5- App Submission
6- Marketing

Requirement Analysis

There are several things to do before you start building a mobile app. One of those is doing market research and finalizing what all things and resources you will need in the due course of app development process.

    • Finalize the vision of what your app is going to be and its scope and extent.
    • Based on upon, you will need to hire team members should you choose to go with your own team instead of outsourcing.
    • Whether you will need a web portal with it or backend development and customer support staff etc.

App Development Platform Selection

One of the major dilemmas of any app creator is what platform to go with and if both, then whether or not to go with hybrid apps or native apps. Both iOS and Android bring advantages and concerns of their own. Such as iOS users reportedly bring more revenue but the number of Android users worldwide are far more superior to them.

App Development Platform Selection - Parangat

Window/Blackberry platform doesn’t get as many such apps as it’s still not so much widely used and thus very fewer app owners choose to go with. As for whether android or ios, the choice totally depends on you. If you decide to go with native apps, then you will have to develop a separate app for both androids as well as iOS platform which will cost more but will cover more features and provide more functionality as well.

NATIVE vs WEB vs HYBRID: 7 FACTORS OF COMPARISON - Parangat

Hybrid apps, on the other hand, provide much fewer functions and incorporate fewer features due to less customization available. But, on the bright side, they cost less than both Android and iOS app development cost when combined. Some also choose to have a web app for their purpose, this number is very less as for now but is increasing with time.

Outsourcing vs Inbuilt Team

Building a team for each minor task that’s associated with your main project is not a wise idea, on the other hand, if you already have the resources and manpower, then outsourcing the task would be a foolishness.

Outsourcing vs Inbuilt Team - Parangat

These days almost every business in any industry wants its own industry but lacking its manpower, they prefer to outsource it to app development firms such as Parangat. A few of those who plan on creating large-scale apps and would in future require continuous upgrades and maintenance do this by hiring a team once and for all.

Benefits of Business Outsourcing - Parangat

Outsourcing such project works in the immediate future and is light on a budget as compared to hiring the team. But if you have got some long-term goals and may require further assistance regarding app development, it’s advised to build a great team.

Integrated Features & Functional Analysis

Its features and functions are what makes a user stay on the app for a long time. But, putting too many features which aren’t requisite or functions which are hardly used can not only make the app bulky and slow, they also cost quite a lot on the pocket unnecessarily.

Some main key features such as in-app purchases, social media integrations, cloud backup etc. are a few of these which are often in high demand but not completely necessary and can cost quite a lot.

Further, using the latest technology and building everything from scratch can cost quite a lot not to mention imperfect as well. There are many publicly free as well as paid SDK’s available which you can make use of for your app development.

App Submission

After the app is completely developed and beta tested for debugging, the next step is to submit it on an app store of your preferred choice. Each app store charges varies and could be either one-time or monthly. For android play store, it is 25$ while for iOS app store it is 99$. Windows apps have it at quite less and need to pay only 12$.

With the apple store being most strict for app submission, you can go through iOS app submission policies to prevent rejection of app. Windows offers individual and company accounts with both having respective pros and cons. Android being most popular is quite soft on this side and doesn’t ask for much.

Marketing

This is another huge section of your app development budget. You can make a cornerstone of an app but it’s of no use if you don’t get its reach to its potential user segment. Social media, press release, guest blog outreach etc these are just some of the ways in which you can market your app.

To get a further detailed idea, you can read this article on various ways of marketing your app and the efforts you are required to make into it.

 Conclusion

When it’s all being said and done, above is only an estimate and when you actually get into the field, many other minor factors within the above major areas come into play such as your team location. Third world countries provide cheaper labor than most developed countries though at sometimes it’s less skilled too. Want a free quote for your next Big Idea?
