Discover how custom software is priced, and the various models used.
Custom software pricing varies widely by company, region and model used. This can be very confusing, as it is hard to reconcile the fact that one company can estimate $20,000 and another company can estimates $150,000 for the same set of requirements. Some of this can be explained by the difference in hourly rates ($25 per hour is typical for India, for example, while $100+ per hour is common in the USA). But quality also plays a huge role in the difference in costs. Generally speaking, the higher the rate, the better the quality. For very simple projects, the quality difference might not matter a lot. For anything even remotely complex, quality will be a huge issue.
Generally speaking, most offshore companies, including many from India and China are going to quotea fixed cost. Of course, nothing about it is fixed, but we'll get to that in a minute. In the U.S., most companies estimate the project, and bill hourly. Both have advantages and disadvantages.Read More
