Check out some of these frequently asked questions about NERDZ LAB software product design and development services:
NERDZ LAB is a Ukrainian company and we support Ukraine during this challenging time. Learn more about our current state of operations in light of the recent Russian invasion here.
Many factors affect software costs across countries. Usually, it depends on living standards in outsourcing countries, tech stack, the quality of education, experience and reputation, team remoteness, communication skills, and service level. Learn more in our blog post.
Companies often opt to outsource software development when they don’t have an in-house IT team or lack the expertise to complete a particular project. Software development outsourcing allows you to take advantage of a broader talent pool, save application development costs, and save time on micromanagement. A new team can also give a fresh perspective on your project and help to optimize the established processes. Learn more about how we can help you.
Ukraine boasts one of the fastest growing IT industries globally with high-quality services and competitive rates. It ranks 4th by the number of certified IT workforce in the country. No wonder a third of all software development orders in Europe are completed by Ukrainians. Learn more.
The choice of the pricing model depends on many factors, including project duration, budget, goals, complexity, and the level of control you’d like to have. Learn more >
The time and material pricing model assumes you pay only for the time and resources spent on your project. Learn more >
A fixed price model is based on an estimate of the volume of work that needs to be done. Learn more >
A dedicated software development team model is often used when you need to have dedicated developers working as a team or side by side with your in-house team. The client and the vendor agree on a fixed monthly payment for the entire team, and the client can either manage the work process on their side or have a dedicated PM as a part of the team. No matter how many hours the team puts in, the monthly cost is always the same. Learn more >
Based on your project’s type, we can offer a fixed price, a time and material, or a dedicated development team pricing model. Learn more about each pricing model here >
Fixed price offers complete predictability since all the details are thoroughly discussed and documented. In short, fixed price means the fixed scope of work, clear delivery schedule, and strict deadlines. Learn more >
The major benefit is that you manage and control the development team and can upscale or downscale it when needed. Besides, you don’t have to cover administrative costs, yearly bonuses, sick leaves, or vacations. Learn more >
You pay only for the work done, and you can play with priorities, remove or add features to keep the total cost in check and ensure the product still fits the market demand. Learn more >
Similar to mobile app development, the cost of a web project depends on the complexity of your plans. Various APIs, third-party integrations, databases, and more for sure will add a lot to the web development cost. However, to give an idea of the initial cost, we can state that developing a simple web app will cost nearly as much as developing a simple iOS application. Think of it as a project with the front-end development only. Learn more about the pricing formulas here. To get a more precise estimate, feel free to drop us a line, and we’ll calculate the cost.
The cost of the Uber-like app is formed mainly by its specific features, like two types of users—drivers and passengers— a need for administration, quite a long development span because of the solution’s complexity, and more. But, roughly speaking, the Uber-like app may cost you somewhere between $33K -$65K. Learn more about the pricing formulas and app development costs breakdown here. If you want to get the precise estimate for your Uber-like app, do contact us via this form.
The app’s price must be a balance between cost to build an app, quality of code, and time efficiency of the app development project. Usually, you can’t have three of them at a time. The outsourcing location matters here a lot as well. Learn more about the pricing formulas here.
Contact us, and we’ll provide you with a quote for the preferred app type.
You can break your project down into several stages, and we can agree that the pricing model can change on each stage depending on your needs. For example, you might want to choose a fixed price for the MVP development. After the release, you can go with either time and material or a dedicated development team pricing model to develop additional functionalities. Learn more >
An estimate is the total number of hours it will take to develop an app. A timeline is a defined period that marks the start and the end of a specific project. It’s divided into tasks and subtasks that have to be completed within the set deadlines. Some of these tasks depend on each other, others can be done simultaneously. For example, the front-end team gets down to work after proper designs are available, while the back-end engineers can develop iOS and Android apps in parallel. The front-end developer makes final adjustments after the back-end is completed.
Feel free to send us your details to get an accurate estimate and timeline for your project.
The discovery phase thoroughly investigates a project’s goals, the industry landscape, and user needs. It also includes the identification of project stakeholders, creating user roles and personas, a mockup design, a feature breakdown, and estimating project costs and timelines. Learn more.
Steps in the mobile app development process differ depending on the complexity of the application, but your mobile development project should include the following stages:
Learn more about the mobile app development process.
Discovery phase deliverables typically include the Lean Canvas, user roles, a feature breakdown list, a technology proposal, and estimation artifacts. These documents summarize all the information related to your project and help to estimate accurate development cost and time, identify potential roadblocks, and develop a more user-centric product. Learn more.
To start working on a project, we have to gather a team of professionals with the relevant expertise that best matches the task at hand. Some of the key experts might be involved in other projects, so there might be a short wait time. But usually, the allocation process doesn’t take longer than one month.
Are you looking for an expert in a specific technology, or the deadline is pressing? Email us today, and we’ll try to help you out.
We will invite you to our team’s daily stand-ups and weekly meetings for updates. To foster transparency, we’ll give you access to the team’s Trello and Jira boards. And, of course, every team includes project managers who make sure the communication between you and the team is effective.
Sure, that’ll be our pleasure. Our office is located in Lviv, Ukraine, which is a well-known hub for software development outsourcing. On top of that, Lviv city is much appreciated for its convenient location with numerous direct flights from European countries, fascinating architecture, and intricate cultural embroidery. Our modern and convenient office was among the top things we missed during the lockdown, so be sure you’ll love working there side-by-side with your team.
If your product comes with many features and regular updates, it’s highly recommended that you automate some types of quality assurance testing. This will shorten the testing time, save the tester’s labor cost, and ensure that your product is fully functional after each modification. Learn more>
The quality assurance process should start early in the software development life cycle, ideally as soon as a project team receives the requirements, and be integrated into every stage of software development. At NERDZ LAB, in terms of our QA services, we follow these stages: test planning and estimation, test analysis, test design, test implementation and execution, test completion, as well as test monitoring and control, which can be applied to any software component, at any testing stage, and in parallel with any other testing activity. Learn more here.
The automation process starts with choosing test tools and building a framework. Then, one has to determine the scope of work, or testing areas. The third step includes planning the process, designing the format, and developing scripts. Next, you run the script to get the test report. The final step is ensuring further testing support to adjust the tests to new functions and features. Learn more>
The difference is the degree of human intervention. In manual testing, a tester goes through each step of the process manually, whereas automated testing is run by special scripts and tools. Learn more about automation testing here>
We always ask our clients to rely on our experience in software testing services and let us prove how thoroughly we analyze, implement, and control test activities and tasks. At the same time, we ask our clients to take an active part in providing and discussing documents of project requirements, as they’re critical to ensuring the expected outcome of the entire software development project. Learn more about the testing process here.
Our team has helped numerous companies to release products with high-quality code, well-tested usability, and a memorable user experience. We build our software testing services on best industry standards (like ISTQB certification), rely on automated testing as a practical approach within CI/CD paradigm, and work with a broad array of real devices and professional testing tools. On top of that, we thoroughly plan and carefully implement the above-mentioned test activities and tasks in a timely manner. Find out more here.
We insist that any project scope must always include QA services. Unless a client has an in-house QA team, we attract our QA specialists to participate at any stage of SDLC. First, they compile test cases to cover the requirements. Second, they’re busy with the ongoing testing so that the programmers can immediately address found issues, saving project time this way. Next, before the release, it’s the regression testing time to ensure there are no bugs left before deploying to production.
A quality assurance engineer is a professional who is aware of all potential roadblocks on the project and can identify them at an early stage. They speed up the process of development, as developers do not have to waste time re-testing the app in progress.
Usually, there are four people in a team. A front-end developer who builds user interfaces for iOS, Android, or web projects. A back-end developer who’s responsible for the server-side that powers the front-end. A QA engineer checking the level of quality throughout the process. And, finally, a project manager who makes plans, tracks the development process, assesses risks, and manages the entire team.

Business analysts analyze and document the functional requirements of a software product. This includes identifying the product’s features, capabilities, and quality metrics. Analysts also create use cases and user stories to provide context and help the development team understand how a software product will be used in practice. Essentially, business analysts act as a liaison between business stakeholders and the development team, ensuring a product meets business needs in the best way possible. Learn more.
We firmly believe that one software engineer cannot develop a product for several platforms at the same time. The platforms differ in many ways, and it’s hardly possible to stay on top of all the latest trends. That’s why we follow the one platform, one developer principle.
Please send the details of your project or schedule a call whenever it’s convenient for you, and together we’ll decide on the best model for your case.
Typically, from 2 to 4 weeks. This depends on the level of expertise you’re looking for, e.g., senior positions take longer to fill. The time can also depend on the technology you use, as some are more common, and some might be very rare. However, it is all possible with NERDZ LAB, a software development company in Ukraine with a well-established reputation in the talent market.
Absolutely! The candidates will go through our standard recruitment process and interviews with the NERDZ LAB technical leads, and then, if you’d like, you can go ahead and set up interviews with them yourself. All candidates should speak English fluently, so they can easily participate in the interview with your team representatives. Book a meeting to discuss your needs here.
The front-end is all about the visual side of the project, the one that users interact with. The back-end is what goes behind the scenes: it collects and processes data and then transfers it back to the client side. Roughly, the data do not go directly from user A to user B—they always pass through the back-end first.
When choosing between Android and iOS app development, consider the two platforms’ pros and cons based on your business needs. Start by pinpointing your budget, time to market, and the audience you want to reach. After defining your target users and app functionality, you will know how to assess each platform’s benefits and drawbacks.

UX design centers on all the decisions that form the user experience — it’s about making a logical, well-functioning, and intuitive product that meets a user’s need in the best way possible. In comparison, UI design focuses on the aesthetic aspects of the product. When defining UI and UX differences, these two design approaches combine to create a complete product design that’s both practical and appealing. Learn more here.
The only reliable way to ensure the security of your iOS apps is to address security concerns thoroughly during app development. Assume the app WILL be hacked, and don’t leave anything to chance. Obfuscate the code, never store sensitive details in a string, use Keychain correctly, scan your app with ProxyMan to highlight all possible loopholes, but most importantly—write the code responsibly from the start to minimize any potential exposure.

Based on our experience, we can say that cross-platform development is not nearly the same quality as native development. There’s a lack of support from Apple or Google, and graphics look like a website rather than a mobile app. It’s often said that cross-platform development takes half as much time as native apps, but in fact, it’s only 20-30 percent faster. The project estimate might become shorter, but the project timeline gets longer. Unlike native development, when two developers work in parallel and independently, there’s only one developer working on a cross-platform app—and even if there are two or three of them, they won’t be able to work independently anyway.
