While killing time in my wife’s favorite store I found myself reading an endless selection of metal signs in the area titled “man section.” As I thumbed through the expansive selection featuring automotive brands, cool cars, tractors, hot rods, and airplanes I stumbled upon the following wall décor.
While running a custom software company capable of automating any business, making the lives of the owners and employees better, allowing their businesses to scale during the good times, and survive the bad times, I am all too aware of the look of “sticker shock” when presenting an estimate to a client.
If your business is successful, but cannot scale because of manual processes, paperwork, and spreadsheets, or software that just ruins your everyday productivity, custom software could be for you. 95% of the expense of producing custom software is good old-fashioned labor. Those hours and hours of work that it takes to produce something that is unique and completely tailored to how you run your business. The bad news is hours cost money. The good news is you never have to pay anyone to use that software again and can sell it with your business like the asset that it is.
The App Pros are experts in the mobile and web application development world. We have decades of successful experience on our team. We care about our clients. Our rates are more than fair. We stick by our estimate. We treat you like family because we’re in it for the long haul. But sometimes clients choose another route. Almost always it is a “less expensive” route. You see where I’m going. What we have found is “you get what you pay for.” When you go to another company that is going to do it for less than The App Pros’ estimate, I always want to ask, “What are you going to sacrifice?”
Is it flexibility? Maybe it’s knowledge that only experience can bring? Or possibly it is doing business with a faceless company far removed from your local business? Or maybe it is a team that is here today and gone tomorrow? I don’t know what you’ll be sacrificing, but I’m 99.9% sure you will be sacrificing something because time costs money.
Is our team perfect? No, absolutely not. Are we honest and are we going to be there when you need us? Ask any client that we’ve had since we opened for business in 2011. The App Pros are first and foremost servants to our clients. We want to do the very best for you and your team because we are in this together. We have been on the receiving end of clients that went the “less expensive” route. My Dad’s advice still rings true, “Do it right the first time, or you’re going to just have to go back and do it again.” And you guessed it, doing it again costs more time and more money.
