FOUNDERS OF TREATISE INC.
You bring the brilliant idea and we bring the on-point execution -- a team of experts rooting for your success. Each project begins with a two-day strategy and design session where we define the mvp, create the wireframes, and give you a technical roadmap to bring your idea to life.
Wireframes are a good start, but you need a graphic designer to design an app. Good design is critical for making the mvp beautiful, delightful, and easy to use. You'll work with our expert designer to help us create a design that ignites your vision.
The real magic begins at development. Anyone who develops software knows that expert developers mean the difference between a 5-week project and a 15-week project. Execution is critical and it's what App Factory does best. Our expert developers ensure you launch quickly, efficiently, and without future burdens of technical debt. We've never had a single project miss a deadline or go over-budget.
I have this app idea, how do I get it built?
There are four options for someone looking to build an app
1) You can teach yourself how to code and build it yourself
2) You can get a technical co-founder
There are advantages and disadvantages to this approach:
3) You can hire a freelance developer or mobile agency
This approach too, has its advantages and disadvantages. Finding any freelance developer is easy, finding good freelance developers is pretty hard. The same goes with agencies.
4) You can hire App Factory
At App Factory, we have created a hybrid approach marrying the advantages of a technical co-founder with the advantages of a mobile agency.
We combine the broad expertise and adaptability of an agency with the cost-effective support of a technical co-founder. This creates our unique ability to execute quickly and efficiently, while aligning your success with our success.
How involved should I be in the process?
Clients can be as involved as they want to be. Our clients are most satisfied when they are more heavily involved in the Strategy & Design Session and in the bug-testing of the product.
This ensures that the product matches your vision, enables you to quickly learn about your target market, and gives you invaluable product development experience.
We believe every founder should have some understanding how the sausage is made . . . but leave the coding to us.
Can I build an app in exchange for equity?
If you decide to make App Factory your strategic partner, we offer equity discounts for our services. For every 1% equity, we offer a 6% discount on all of our services for the lifetime of your company. The maximum discount is 30%, which can be achieved in exchange for 5% equity.
Our equity exchange model is completely optional. About 70% of our clients take advantage of this option.
How much does an app cost?
The scope of the project depends on the complexity of the app. Is this a social media app, or a simple utility app?
At AppFactory, we try to eliminate optional, expensive features for an MVP. As a result, our MVPs for startups typically fall in the $20-40k range.
