Cotswold Apps is the brainchild of Paul Harding. Paul is a software developer with over 20 years consulting experience in companies of all sizes. Paul brings a wealth of working knowledge, particularly in an Agile Environment that we have adopted by building apps based on Features.
At Cotswold Apps we build Mobile Apps with a difference.
We are looking for people with ideas that have found a gap in the market. This excites us and we love working with you on a new venture.
We believe that ideas will mostly be for a purpose, thus if your App is for a 'gap in the market', you will be able to base this on pay-as-go principle. This is what we call a Subscription Model. Just like one of our apps Lazy Slippers. Built for a single nursery on a subscription basis and now being taken to other nurseries with no custom features, a simple subscription based offering.
We price our Apps by feature. A feature is the key element of any piece of software. We build the App initially using your top features and then let the users decide new features. We keep your feature list for the lifetime of your App; you will always have access to your feature list. The process we follow by doing this has a name, is it called Agile.
A subscription model is the new way to pay for products. A lot of software vendors now are moving from one-off licenses to monthly or quarterly payments, to spread the cost.
Using the web portal, you can invite users and administer thier subscriptions.
A good example of the subscription model for an app is for a Tennis Club. The users get insight into the club's events, can book classes and read newsletters and buy balls. Once it is working for a single Tennis Club, you would be able to sell this to other Tennis Clubs for a subscription fee, giving you a passive income.
To host the App infrastructure, along with the Helpdesk there is a monthly cost of £50+VAT.
New Features priced individually and when required. They will always be visible on your portal.
Base features, no new Features added:
App Build Cost: £2500 +VAT
Running Costs: £50 + VAT per month
If you charge £50 a month, and start with 'X' subscribers with a build cost and 1 year hosting costs totally £3,100 (prices ex VAT).
