Mobile App Development For Business
Applicable are experienced NZ App developers. We specialise in custom Android and iOS mobile applications.
There are many reasons why a business may need a mobile application. From mobilising your business processes and streamlining systems to developing a stronger brand presence and a greater customer experience. Gleeson & Cox, one of NZ’s largest bulk haulage companies, found creating a driver App drastically improved their compliance, load optimisation and flow of information. Outcomes included increasing revenue, eliminating fines and reducing admin time.
A great user experience (UX) equals great results.
At Applicable we apply modern UX best practice to create apps that feel elegantly simple and intuitive to use, even for people who aren’t big on tech.
Focus on business results
Our apps are not just about cool ideas; we dig deep to understand your objectives and to ensure that we’re building products that will achieve them.
Common results include creating a market advantage, reducing admin costs, increasing staff engagement or improving visibility for management.
Android and IOS specialists
We are experienced in creating cross-platform apps (built in a single code base for deployment to both major platforms) as well as specialised native apps for both iOS and Android platforms where required.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
This is extremely variable depending on your requirements; typically the lowest cost apps are around $10,000 and they go upwards from there. Big factors include the amount of functionality in the app, what integrations to other systems it does or doesn’t need and whether or not we need to build a custom ‘back end’ data service for it.
The answer is almost always yes, it’s just a case of how easy or hard the integration is.
Because apps are downloaded from the app stores there is no direct hosting cost for the apps themselves. However, for apps requiring a custom back-end data service that data service does need to be hosted somewhere in the cloud and, if you don’t have an existing service that’s suitable, you may need to subscribe to a service specifically for it.
Typically these days people only build apps for the iOS and Android platforms as other platforms have pretty much died out. So, where this is the case, your apps will only work on devices running those platforms. Some apps are also only designed to be released on tablet or smartphone specifically, however they are the same technically (apart from screen size), so even where this is the case it’s usually easy to adapt for release for both tablets and smartphones.
