The next step is to determine the number and types of searched involved in the application. A simple search can cost you close to $100 and a more complex one close to $200. If the search results involve any filtering or sorting on the database then expect to pay more for it, in the range of $300 may be.
Next comes the reports in your application. A simple report can cost you around $50 and a more detailed report is generally close to $100. If you further like printing option or multiple browser compatibility then you might have to shed out $150-$200 for each report.
Last, there is an overall integration and implementation costs on the software in general. This involves multiple things like integration, testing, fine tuning. Application setup etc. For a smaller applications, companies charge in the range of $300 – $500 for this. For bigger applications (which has huge databases with multiple searches and reports) the costs go up in the range of $500 – $1500 or even higher for large scale applications.
If you add individual pieces of information that your application will comprise then you will get a fair idea about estimations on your web application.
At the end of the day, the cost is always governed by the basic principals of supply and demand. If the source from where you buy is in good demand and supply quality products then expect to pay higher than the market standards. On the other hand if the supply is low quality which is less in demand then you will see costs going down substantially from such sources.
This article is a guide line for estimating costs and is a tool to equip you with ideas and components involved on costing and estimating any Web Development project.
