We are a small company and most of the time we have been developing mobile and web applications for our clients during the last ten years. We love doing that but it’s only about selling our own time. No matter if we are paid per hour or per project, it’s always about how many hours it takes. So how did the idea for Effortix come to our minds?
Do you want to earn more money? You need to put in more hours and because there are only 24 hours in a day, you need more manpower, larger offices, more computers and most importantly — more coffee…
Another problem is the budget of your client.
Customers always want to get as much as possible while keeping it as cheap as possible. That’s OK — we all want that.
With some clients, this isn’t such a big problem because they understand that great solutions have their price.
But you may have to refuse to work for clients with a limited budget. Do a job that’s not perfect or simply work for less money to get by.
And you don’t really want this to happen to you. When you love your craft, you want to make the best product possible for your clients and you know that is not possible with a limited budget.
The reasons above made us think about another way to tackle this problem; build “Software as a Service” to cover at least a part of the market that would be too time consuming to cover with the original approach i.e. development from scratch.
That’s how Effortix, a DIY solution for (not only) business mobile apps, was given birth.
