Travel and Tourism are among the largest money making industries around the world, which as for now are irreplaceable. As we move into the future, the distance and time spent traveling from one point to another is becoming shorter and lesser. Nowadays, the customers are more demanding on standards and expectations, as well as with the ways to get in touch with a hotel and get a quick response. A hotel app development provides the solution for these tasks.
Hotel apps can help with many factors starting from the improvement in the quality of service and in employee productivity, to ordering room service from the hotel menu. An app opens up so many possibilities which includes a constant connection to the customers and saving time and costs on call centers or concierge service.

Hotel app: how do we perform it?
Competition in the sector of hotel business is very high, that’s why the hotel app development must start with careful analysis. We analyze the hotel market, competitors, existing hotel apps, and research customers’ expectations. Only when we have the required information, then we can start the development.
Business expertise at the first stage is a necessity. Such an approach allows us to create helpful applications both for hotel owners and their clients.
- Product idea and business expertise.
- Project evaluation and proposal.
- Product design.
- Backlog and development contract.
- Planning a Sprint.
- Accompaniment and achievement of the result.

Some Mistakes You Should Avoid in Hotel App Development
The hotel application is an excellent marketing tool to attract new customers, retain guests and increase the number of bookings. Therefore, to realize all these goals, you need to know what mistakes should be avoided when starting a hotel application development.
- The mistake in choosing a development company. To prevent this, make sure that the potential performer already has experience creating hotel apps.
- Ignoring indicators. It is quite necessary to track not only the number of visitors and users but the number of bookings as well. It will be useful to get to know your marketing analytics before starting the process of creating an app.
- Thinking that expensiveness means professionalism and guaranteed ROI. You should not waste money asking a developer to build-in a lot of fashionable tools. The real experience of the hotel apps users proves that it is more reasonable to bet on functionality and pleasant design.
Hotel apps cost
The special feature of our price formation is that the ordering client pays for the result, but not for the time spent on the development.
Factors affecting hotel apps cost
Hotel app cost depends on many factors: complexity, functional capabilities, design, corporate identity, and many other things like the location of the hotel app development company, and the technical difficulties that may arise.
As for the location of a developer, you should be aware that prices for hotel app creation may vary significantly across the different states. For example, American or Swiss developers will ask you to pay them the highest possible price but if you apply to programmers from China or India, the cost of the app will be rather low.
However, there is no sense in rushing from one extreme to the other, so pay attention on our Ukrainian coders as the most reasonable solution from the perspective of the price and quality.
