Creating The Next APP-RENEUER
Mobile technology is disrupting industry value chains across verticals. We have been perfecting our value proposition for the past 24 months to power the technology supporting your business ideas by building beautiful, fast apps. Think you have a good idea? Get in touch with us and we will bring it to life.
Appscrip evolved from years of experience making mobility solutions and being a tech solution provider for startups as 3Embed. We soon realized that there was no specialized provider who can act as a technology partner for startups that are working on on-demand , social , discovery , messaging and shopping platforms and that brought about the whole idea that is APPSCRIP today. We have identified the common denominator to help the end platform owners save time and money and allow them to focus on their core product. They can draw comfort from the fact that the underlying technology (Prebuilt IP) is already driving successful platforms around the world.
We are one of the only companies that provides full suite of services tailored to the on demand, social , discovery , messaging and shopping platforms. In the past months we have kick-started business’s like Rapido , Baxitaxi , Mober etc which have gone on to raise million dollar funds and we now continue to innovate and evolve to launch more successful business’s.

In simple words – We power mobile first business models. We have built 14 mobile apps which are live in various industry verticals and are doing excellent in terms of business, revenue and technology. Currently we are working on 6 more.
We have created the backend technology (PreBuilt IP) that helps us build custom experiences while ensuring that we are not spending our energy in reinventing the wheel with every platform.
Pre built IP is structured in the form of backend and front end code blocks. These code blocks power modules are built for different business models. These modules are evolving with each successful implementation as we uncover different use cases.
Updates to the Prebuilt IP don’t impact any previous implementations. The code blocks become part of your solution in an un-bundled format and are completely accessible for further customizations. In addition they still need some amount of work to ensure we are not compromising with the specifics of your business model.
At the end of our engagement cycle you are allowed to receive, customize and retain the complete source code. Appscrip grants to the Client a perpetual, non-exclusive, worldwide, non-transferable, royalty-free license to use its Pre-Existing IPs solely for Deliverables. The only right we retain is to reuse the Prebuilt IP for other implementations.
We help you take your idea from Point A – Idea/high level business model to Point B – a market ready technology solution. You get a head start at Point A starting from our Prebuilt
IP. We keep adding value at each stage based on our experience of what works and what doesn’t, helping you avoid some mistakes, thus increasing the probability of getting many things right in the first version itself.
Other than that the engagement closely follows the standard SDLC. We have a matured communication system that has evolved over more 5 years with a PM being a singular point of contact and using industry standard tools for every stage. (Read Redmine, Invision, Salesforce Cases, etc.).
We take the privacy and IP that is associated with your business model really seriously. That doesn’t imply we don’t learn from each new implementation. But these learnings are centered around how we can make the base IP more generic and robust. Other than that a Chinese wall exists between different projects/teams restricting the flow of information even if we have multiple projects undergoing in the same domain.
While we do entertain requests for accepting non-competes in certain cases wherein the specific business model/vertical under discussion is unique enough to warrant ignoring future business opportunities. But in a lot of other cases it’s difficult for us to ignore the future business altogether. For some verticals it’s synonymous to suggesting a company that just does chat apps, to not make chat apps for anyone else.
In addition, the fact that the front end is developed completely from scratch from designs made specifically for you helps in securing the uniqueness.
Most of the new engagements to begin with are fixed time/cost arrangements wherein we agree to deliver an agreed upon scope in a given timeframe.
After many iterations over the previous few years the model that works best in our experience is an hybrid of waterfall and agile.
Under this approach the first half of the engagement concentrates on zeroing in on the specs that go with the high level business model and simultaneously working on the wireframes and designs. The second half is dedicated to bi-weekly sprints involving coding certain parts and high level User Acceptance Testing. The final round of regression testing is reserved for when we already have thrown significant number of these sprints out of the park. The entire process is designed for feedback wherein you as a key stakeholder are constantly impacting the different aspects. In addition this ensures we are not constantly at each other’s necks fighting scope creep.
Once we have delivered on the initial promises most of the engagements go on a retainer wherein we closely follow the Agile methodology in true spirit.
We use either NodeJS web services or PHP webservices layer that run over Amazon cloud working with native mobile apps.MEAN stack involves the use of ExpressJS and AngularJS for frontend Web development.
PHP vs Node.JS
But what does it apply from the performance perspective –
Node.js is entirely non-blocking and event-based, allowing for true concurrency among requests. Let me use these images to explain what this means.
These graphs state that PHP can handle 1773 requests per second vs Node’s ability to handle 3614. In addition Node is around 10 times faster as compared to PHP when around 1000 requests are thrown at it simultaneously. All this boils down to the concurrent treatment of different requests by NodeJS.
Given that now we have established Node is built for scale, the choice of MongoDB can be attributed to it gelling a lot better with NodeJS as compared to MySQL. In addition, MongoDB has the ability to handle highly diverse data types, and manage applications more efficiently at scale. The biggest advantage is that MongoDB’s flexible data model allows the database schema to evolve with business requirements.
The costs are calculated at our hourly rates for different resources, which are significantly lower than On-shore developers, since our development team sits out of India. In addition in our experience it takes us 40% less time to develop the complete solution than what it would have taken, if we were to develop everything from scratch.
The methodology is fixed cost based wherein costs for any overruns with regards to features decided in the agreement are borne by us. The entire cost itself is divided into 4 milestones of 25% each tied to different physical milestones.
The fact that there are so many moving parts on our products , makes the technology complex and time consuming to develop. We might be dealing with more than 1 app for a project on multiple platforms and web based versions in addition to CRM/Dashboard/Admin panel components to be developed on top of the backend that gels everything together. The fact that front end is developed natively (to optimize user experience) for each of these components , customization takes time and effort.
1. Faster time to market
2. Lower cost
3. Complete flexibility viz. a viz. owning technology and all the data without being responsible for licensing costs.
But the biggest factor that sets us apart is We understand how mobile apps are built for a business. Today we are more thought leaders in this space that comes from experience doing diverse implementations in on-demand , messaging , social and dating and shopping space.
