Claimed Profile

Our award-winning firm of 30+ experts specializes in delivering beautiful apps on time and on budget. Our work ranges from wild startup ideas dreamt up by the likes of NFL’s Austin Ekeler, to complex, powerful enterprise systems built for rockstar companies like Los Angeles Apparel.

Our main focus is cross-platform mobile applications and websites (so using the same code for Android, iOS and web), but we can crush anything that involves bites and bytes - from blockchain to Artificial Intelligence.

Our engineers come from the likes of MIT, Stanford and UCLA, and are focused in the USA. Between them, we specialize in technologies like React, React Native, Flutter, Node, Swift, Android, AWS, GCP and much more.

For a free consultation, or an analysis on if/how your idea can be built, and with what budget, please reach out. Calls go directly to our cell phones.

At the very least, please consider me your free, go-to technical resource for all software related questions.

App Makers LA Executive Interview

Daniel Haiem
Daniel Haiem
CEO
Visit Profile
Please introduce your company and give a brief about your role within the organization.
Our company, AppMakersLA, builds beautiful software for clients ranging from scrappy startup founders to billion-dollar tech giants. My role as CEO is to make sure each and every project is an absolute success.
What is the story behind starting this company?
When I started my own startup, ClassCalc, I tried outsourcing the development work and found that most vendors out there were incapable and dishonest. After exiting ClassCalc, I decided to build a brand I felt people would be able to rely on, that would emphasize not only engineering competence but extreme transparency throughout the process of building.
What are your company’s business model–in house team or third party vendors/ outsourcing?
We pride ourselves on doing development, design, product, and QA all in-house. Humble, strong opinion: any company outsourcing that work is simply a sales company.
How does your company differentiate itself from the competition?
  1. We have startup roots and have been through the most difficult of technical challenges.
  2. We invest millions in abstracting code so that it can always be reused in later projects. For example, while a login screen might usually take 20 hours to build, for us, it takes two.
  3. We pride ourselves on transparency, especially during challenging times, or when things don’t go perfectly as planned (and they sometimes don’t!)
What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive? If yes, what ratio of clients has been repetitive to you?
We are industry agnostic and have succeeded in every challenge thrown our way.
Please share some of the services that you offer for which clients approach you the most for?
Development, design, product, and QA.
What is your customer satisfaction rate according to you? What steps do you take to cater to your customer’s needs and requirements?
100%. We prioritize customer satisfaction over profitability for every project.
What kind of support system do you offer to your clients for catering to their queries and issues?
We have maintenance plans that range from “keep my project chugging along at minimum cost” to “Keep my project going and add new features each month.” Custom-tailored to your needs.
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients? Is it Pay per Feature, Fixed Cost, Pay per Milestone (could be in phases, months, versions etc.)
Charged per hour, billed monthly.
Do you take in projects which meet your basic budget requirement? If yes, what is the minimum requirement? If no, on what minimum budget you have worked for?
The minimum requirement is $25,000, although we sometimes do make exceptions.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2022?
40-60K.
Where do you see your company in the next 10 years?
Growing to no more than 30 engineers, with thousands of successful projects under our belt.

Arcxis is a billion-dollar company that manages all aspects of house building and maintenance, from engineering to permitting to inspection. We built one of their flagship product, iPerit Pro, and continue building for them to date.

iPermit's original website was built almost 20 years ago, was falling apart and leaving customers dissatisfied. The iPermit team asked us to analyze their entire process, break it down piece by piece, and rebuild it with 21st centry software to make their internal flow more efficient, and provide an external interface that is more beautiful and robust for their clients. The result is an amazing and continuously growing platform that has powered exponential growth (3X in 2 years) for the iPermit team.

Los Angeles Apparel (LAA) is the brainchild of the industry famous Dov Charney, founder of American Apparel. When we first met Dov, LAA was scaling at a massive rate, and needed to build a customized and intelligent inventory tracking software system that would streamline the logistics of their incredible operation. After months of intense thinking and creative problem-solving, we built a beautiful, simple software that would coordinate thousands of employees while simultaneously allowing each individual employee to only focus on their own task at hand.

Link: There is no public link to view LAA's website, since it is an internal tool. We're happy to schedule a walkthrough of the website by request.

Review Summary

Being around social media everyday, it became more and more intriguing to me on how apps are initially built. Once i researched about how apps are built, i came up with a decision to create one. I then came across this business (App Makers La) and am happy with these results. They make the development of the application so easy. They are so organized, helpful, and educated on each step and the process you have to go through in order to get what i want. Not only do they offer ideas, they always answer immediately, and explain every step process until you fully understand what it is you want. They offer ideas, but never take away from your ideas. I am happy i chose them to develop my app and am excited to share with the world. I recommend using either Josh or Mac.
