How Much Custom Software Costs

How much is your custom software going to cost, and how long will it take?

How much is your custom software going to cost?

Although it is impossible to say without discussing your project requirements in detail, let's throw out some rough numbers. In the past 5 years, most of our projects cost between $25,000 and $125,000, with the average being somewhere in the $50k to $60k range. We have completed a handful a projects below (and significantly above) those numbers, but that is typically the range we deal with. So without knowing anything about your project there is a statistically significant chance that your project is going to be somewhere in the $50-60k range.

How long is this going to take?

Again, using the averages above, most projects are going to be in the 6 to 9 month range, although we do work with many clients on an ongoing basis lasting multiple years. Your project may be very different, so the only way to know for sure is to request a free consultation.

Rob's Take

Custom software is pretty expensive, so you should be sure that a solid business case exists before diving in. Once you do decide to take the plunge, I recommend that you take any "number" a software team gives you, and then add 25%. Things just have a way of popping up at the worst possible time, so if you are given an estimate of $100,000, for example, budgeting for $125,000 should give you plenty of buffer. Good luck with your project!

I’ve been meaning to get back to you regarding a testimonial. I would love to give you a testimonial, however since we do not have an industry exclusive clause with you, upper management fears our ruthless competitors will figure it out and start using you as well to become as productive as we are now becoming!
