For example, the development cost in the US can range anywhere between $150-$250 per hour; while in Europe it may be between $100-$150. The hourly development rate in India and other Asian countries ranges from $40-$90 only.
Taking these cost parameters, we can work up a rough calculation of the development cost of the online milk delivery app. taking basic and necessary features into consideration for developing the milk delivery app in India, the cost estimation could be around $15,000-$30,000. If additional advanced features like CRM and CMS are included to the Website development list, the cost price would naturally escalate.

Native Milk always had to deal with route optimization to maximize profit and frequent changing of delivery boys. While this was easily manageable manually in offline business, it was a big headache when their business went digital.
We developed a mobile application for the drivers with route optimization. The total delivery area is divided into various routes and orders are sorted according to different routes. A driver is then assigned a single route.
PlanTech, (Construction Project Management software Case Study) a well-established US based construction company with huge projects, needed an improvement of their business processes and better optimization of their resources. As their business expanded, projects continuously got delayed which resulted in lawsuits by unhappy clients. We faced a variety of challenges to develop niche technological solutions for a company involved in the construction industry.
We designed separate web and mobile applications for foremen i.e. project managers and for construction staff (labourers). The applications has synchronized features such as calendar, attendance etc. that were updated real time Simple user interface for the layman was developed after many iterations and approval from the client.
We developed a dedicated central project management panel. The purpose was to have a centralised system update where all team leaders from different departments could update on their tasks at work.
We needed a fast technology to synchronize the source data to our system.
We had to run our programs real time during the horse race.
We ran our calculations on the given data, but by the time we generated an analysis of the probable winner, the market trends and positions of the race horses altered so our result had no value.
The reason behind using node.js is that we were able to establish a swift and persistent connection between betfair and our algorithm.
We could run our program with race data and generate results using the latest trends up-to-the-second with more than 99 % of the source data matching with our index.

The client was clear with their needs but was not tech savvy enough to state specific requirements.
In GetIt the driver and vendor are treated as separate entities unlike a regular taxi application where such division does not exist.
We initiated brainstorming sessions with the client to plan out the project.
We built application functionality to optimize the process while simultaneously taking all stakeholders into account.
The client had an understanding of NFC but they had no idea of how the technology behind NFC works.
The client needed a secure platform as they wanted to keep the customer data secured.
We did a knowledge transfer with the client and explained the technology behind NFC and QR code.
We undertook a variety of security measures to prevent any leakage of user data.
The oldest insurance company of Lebanon reached out to us. They needed to digitize their operations and develop a lending application.
The target customers of the bank were mostly laymen with not much technical know-how. They consisted of old people, rural families, middle class urban families etc. Thus digitization was a challenge.
We developed a mechanism for the bank to directly disburse the loan amount to the customer’s bank account. This saved a trip to the bank of the customer and saved a lot of time for both the parties.
