HeyInnovations Executive Interview

Alexander Semenov
Alexander Semenov
CEO, HeyInnovations
Please introduce your company and your role within the company.
I’m the CEO and one of the founders of HeyInnovations. Our company is a developer of data-driven web and mobile services. The main idea behind the company is in its slogan - “your ideas turned into success”. HeyInnovations took on its first projects in 2012 and has since been showing steady growth with every passing year.
Mention the objectives or the parameters critical in determining the time frame of developing a mobile application.
I would say that the first parameter to be considered would have to be the number of developers we can get on the project. For example, when we want to finish the project quicker, we get several developers on board for one platform. While the increase of developers on a project does not proportionally speed up the development, i.e. doubling the number of developers will not double the speed, it will however certainly have an impact.

Secondly, it’s the number of iterations. When a client wants to work in several iterations, we need to factor in more time for testing and debugging each iteration. If the project is done in one go without any transitional iterations, the time for development can be significantly reduced.

Another parameter is the materials that may be needed from the client’s side. In case we take on everything from design to backend development, there are no risks to have time delays. However, if we are waiting for some materials that are necessary for design, API, etc. then there are risks that the development may be delayed.
How much effort in terms of time goes into developing the front end and back end of a mobile application?
Generally back end takes twice less time as the front end, but this may vary for some projects, so I don’t want to draw a clear timeline here.
What is your company’s business model– in-house team or third party vendors / outsourcing?
We focus on complex projects, which is why we prefer to work with a close-knit team. With this in mind, we do not outsource and prefer to do every project in-house.
How is your business model beneficial, from a value addition perspective, to your clients as compared to other companies’ business model?
The core benefit of our business model is that we have a permanent in-house team and do not follow the “outsource on an as-needed basis” model. This ensures not only quality but also a short project entry time.
What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive?
We have a wide range of industries we are working with, but the main ones include E-commerce, health tech, delivery, and food tech.

With regard to repetitive customers, we certainly have customers that come to us to improve and enhance the platforms that we developed for them. Time doesn’t stand still and we are always looking to help our customers stay ahead of the game. Having said that, we also have many new clients, including startups, that come with great new ideas.
What are the key parameters to be considered before selecting the right platform for a mobile application?
The main parameter is the Target Audience. Clients need to know what devices and apps their audience is using and invest into the development of this platform.

Then we need to consider the goals of the development: are there going to be sales in the app, etc., and what is the budget that a client can spend on its promotion. Last, but not least is the presence of a distinct deadline for the launch of the app (considering the beginning of the advertising campaign, etc.)
Which platform do you suggest your clients to begin with when they approach you with an idea (Android or iOS) and why?
Our suggestions depend on the target audience and goals of the future app, including what the client wants to have in the end and for what purposes. In some countries, for instance, iOS is known more for paid apps, while the most downloadable apps are the ones from Google Play on Android devices. So, it all depends on the goals of the client. If the project budget is limited, but the client wants it to be paid, it’s better to start with iOS where the audience is more eager to pay for apps. Another point to support starting with iOS is that it’s actually harder to create an app for iOS, there are much more guidelines and things to learn to develop an app. If you are successful in creating an app for iOS it’ll be very easy to make an Android version in the future.
Android or iOS, Native or Hybrid — which platform is best to use to build your app? What are your recommendations?
I recommend not taking sides on the issue. There is no one right answer that fits all cases.

Of course, the native app route is the best option I can recommend for development because all the cool features are hiding in detail that distinguish a brilliant app from an average one. Let me mention just a couple of these benefits: access to device features, a better user experience with iOS, and more capabilities with native code, especially with animations, transitions, database access, and device features.
Which platform and technologies do you prefer to use in development of your web apps?
We base our decision on the individual requirements of a project. We have a wide range of technologies that can fit any requirement, however, we prefer to work with frameworks that provide flexibility and allow for the development of complex systems. For instance, we could use Laravel or Yii for the backend, and if high-load systems are required we can implement Java/Python and microservice architecture.
Do you offer website design templates or customised website design, and do you have a responsive website design?
We prefer to do custom designs and have a strong UX/UI team to work on every project, which is why we have different customized website designs and of course responsive designs in our portfolio.
What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of an application?
The cost is based on the app functions only and depends on the business goals our client wants to achieve. As I mentioned before, we are focusing on custom development, which is why we usually don’t have a standard “from” cost. All projects are individual and have a unique business logic with features that are useful to the client as well as the end users of the app.
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients?
We work with a transparent budgeting system. The cost is calculated from the hours taken for the development and rates of our specialists. We also recommend our clients divide the work into stages and pay for the various stages separately.

This type of system usually works best for the project, because usually the cost and the timeframe are corrected after the planning stage. After working on the business logic of the project we can find the best suitable features and more effective solutions for the business goals of the client.
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?
As I said we don’t use the term “minimum cost” in our practice, but we can say that a project takes 1000 hours at minimum. 300 hours go for development for every platform, 300 for backend development, and around 250 for everything else including design and prototyping. Typically we know that, for example, an app for an online store needs several must-have features including a personal profile, catalog, and payment system. Knowing this, we can predict the cost based on our expertise and previous working experience.
What was the cost bracket of the projects your organization did in 2015?
As you can see from our portfolio, the cost bracket goes around $30000 - $50000 for the project.
Which business model do you suggest your clients use to generate revenue from applications? Why?
I don’t know if it’s a good or bad thing that there is no universal solution in terms of the right business model, but this does give us room for an individual approach and creativity. Right from the beginning of the project you need to understand the needs of the end user and design the app thoughtfully. You should always think about the monetization model right from the start because the business logic and functionality of the app strongly depend on it.

For example, if a client already has a well-established brand and a loyal audience, we can start with the launch of a paid application right from the start and get great results. We can also get a bigger audience by bringing the cost of the app down for a certain period of time. The most profitable are business, education, productivity, and navigation spheres. Users are also ready to spend more money on games. This is an easier way than working on Freemium or Paymium models.

You also need to build a strategy for future development, because with no regular updates and new feature additions the project is doomed to fail sooner or later. That is why the only thing I can suggest is to keep the attention of your users on the app for as long as possible and always do something to warm up their interest.
