The main reason custom software development is so expensive is the mind-boggling amount of computer programming required to build real world business applications. Good programmers are a rare commodity these days. But even if you’re lucky enough to find one, hourly rates range from $50 to $125 depending on level of expertise and your geographic location. Multiply these hourly rates times a few to several hundred programming hours and you are looking at a substantial charge to build even small-scale database applications.
Worse yet, studies have shown that around 90% of the total lifetime cost of owning a custom software application comes after the initial development period.
AppQuest turns all this around. The product was specifically designed to eliminate as much programming as possible in the development and maintenance of custom business software. Not only do AppQuest customers benefit from lower development and maintenance costs, they also benefit from:
- A robust, intuitive user interface.
