Custom web development is a solution that allows you to create your own website not based on available templates, but on individual preferences. This solution is a bit more work-consuming than standard website design and requires more financial resources.
Web app (web application) is a computer program that uses the functionality of a web browser to perform certain functions. Web applications work in two ways. The first part is the client side, where we are dealing with a program that is used to order commands. The other side belongs to the server, which is the place where data and all kinds of information are stored.
- Many clients choose to develop web apps because of the benefits they bring with them.
- First of all, a web app does not require installation on your hard drive. Thanks to this, you don't have to worry about limiting the space of your device.
- It doesn’t require much maintenance and support due to its nature.
- Having a web application positively affects the costs on the side of the company as well as the end user.
- There is no problem with the accessibility of the web app as it can be operated from a browser.
- Users of web applications always have the latest version as every update is deployed centrally.
There are many examples of world class web apps. Among the commercially successful ones, it is worth noting Starbucks, Uber, Pinterest, Spotify or AliExpress. There is no single factor for success. For some it will be the interface, for others the integration of payment methods. However, the key to success is the technology used, data protection, and ease of use.
There is no definite answer to the question about the cost of the web app development process. Many factors influence the project budget to be allocated. First of all, the scope of the project and technologies used in it are important. Then the time required to develop the planned solution is valued. Another factor is the composition of the project team, which is responsible for creating a web application. Before you start cooperation with a software house it is worth discussing detailed issues concerning the budget and planned expenses. This will allow you to accurately plan all costs and stick to the established assumptions.

Mobile development services are activities in the area of developing mobile software and applications supported by smartphones and other mobile devices. Mobile applications are created so that the user has access to the most important services always at his fingertips. Mobile development helps companies reach more users and increases the chances of engagement to take advantage of their offerings, for example.
A mobile application is a digital product that is operated via mobile devices. They use the capabilities of smartphones and tablets, to present content of interest to the user. Custom mobile applications can act as a sales platform, a useful tool, or at least the delivery of entertainment content. It all depends on the creator's business idea and the industry in which the creator wants to appear.
There are two main types of mobile applications:
- native apps are solutions designed for specific operating systems (Android, iOS)
- cross platform apps or sometimes called hybrid apps are solutions that are able to be supported by all possible operating systems
The division of mobile apps can also refer to the industry to which it is to be assigned. At Railwaymen, we have had the opportunity to create solutions assigned to the construction, marketing automation, social, FoodTech, FinTech, entertainment, video, education, real estate, IoT, ecommerce industries.
The process of creating a mobile app in Railwaymen consists of several steps. The first is to fill out the estimate form found on our website or contact us by email. After receiving the application, our representatives contact the client to arrange a suitable appointment. Just before the meeting, our clients prepare the necessary documentation and any information that may prove useful during the development of the mobile application. All sensitive data is protected through a two-sided NDA agreement, which we sign with the client. Then, during the meeting, we listen to the client's idea of what the final product should look like and exchange common insights. In case it is necessary to learn more about the client's industry and its needs, we organize a joint workshop where we consider potential opportunities and threats. The final pre-implementation step is to establish deadlines, the technologies to be used and the exact budget for the project.
The idea for an application is only 50% of the success. Equally important is proper preparation for its implementation.
That's why Railwaymen offers Discovery Phase, a dedicated service for clients who are interested in developing an app, but need proper guidance. With Discovery Phase, they receive from us the necessary research and analysis on the potential of the application, the demand of the target group, as well as competitive analysis. This is a kind of consultation with the client during which, in addition to the information mentioned above, we can prepare the first mockups and prototypes of the application. Thanks to a precisely conducted Discovery Phase, you can avoid potential risks that may occur at further stages of the project.
Looking for an idea to reach a wider audience with your services? Do you want to stand out from the competition available on the market? Or maybe you are planning to digitize your enterprise?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, it is a sign that you should consider creating a custom mobile app. With this mobile tool you can easily reach your customers and provide them with your content at any time of the day or night. It's also an opportunity for your business to grow and promote itself online.
MVP stands for Minimum Viable Product. The term refers to a basic version of your product. It allows you to run the application and see its basic functionality. It's also a good time to consult with your users on what elements need improvement and which ones might affect their user experience. With MVP development, you can reduce the final cost of the project.
Hybrid applications are solutions that can be supported by any operating system. These include iOS apps and Android apps, which do not require the development of separate source codes for each of these platforms. In the case of standard apps, we are dealing with solutions dedicated to support on a single platform. This is less complicated, less time-consuming and also involves much less time and money.
The main goal of Discovery Phase is to draw as much information as possible about the project under development based on an analysis of the business environment, potential customers and competitors operating in the market. All this is done in order to present the client with the direction of the project and the challenges that will have to be faced during its implementation.
The main advantage of undertaking the Discovery Phase is to look at the project from a broader perspective. Thanks to the analytical approach, quite a few conclusions can be grasped that will influence the further course of the app development process. Discovery Phase is based on information backed by relevant research and analysis, so the client can be sure that their app will not be developed superficially. An unquestionable advantage is also the possibility to receive mockups and prototypes of the app, which allow to visualize the upcoming final result. A well-conducted Discovery Phase will reduce unforeseen costs at a later stage of implementation and indicate which areas of the application are important from the audience's point of view.
