I’m wanting to build an app for my business (I do excavation work).
I need the app to:
-track income / expenses and produce a properly formatted income statement. Some expenses may client billable and should go directly into an invoice
-keep client contact info
-track projects (in process, que, next, etc.). Each client may have multiple projects.
-Time tracking and billing (also go to an invoice)
I’m currently using 4 different none which do everything they need to - I still have to do a lot of manual data manipulation and calculation.
My first question is can / should I put all of this into one app or can I make separate apps that can share information with each other?
My next question is: would anyone hazard a guess as to what it might cost to hire someone to build such an app? At the rate I’m learning about app building there’s a good chance I won’t live long enough to get this finished.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated .
