Create a long-term sustainable business by providing users with a Software-as-a-Service application (SaaS) developed by Idea Maker.
Now, the industry offers much more than web-based software applications without installation; it also provides a diverse range of business applications, such as CRM, ERP, and HRM.
At Idea Maker, we offer many SaaS development services aimed at ensuring a comprehensive and collaborative process.
Whatever your requirements may be, our team of expert SaaS application developers, designers, and managers can bring your idea to life. This way, you can rest assured that your project is in good hands.
A solid user interface (UI) design is an essential part of creating a positive user experience (UX), as it determines how users will use your software. At Idea Maker, we offer professional UI design that affords your users a smooth and enjoyable experience.
When you bring a project to us, our team of experienced project managers will assess your requirements and create a clear project spec for you to review. Within this spec, we outline which features we plan to build, provide recommendations on future iterations of your project, and explain possible strategies for improvement.
SaaS architecture design refers to the delivery method in which your customers will use the application. For example, depending on its use, we may determine that your app is best accessed via remote cloud servers or a local in-offer server.
We run several stress and quality assurance tests to ensure your SaaS application functions correctly and is fit for public consumption. Over the years, we’ve honed our quality assurance process to make certain that we catch obvious and common errors.
In order to maintain a positive user experience, your SaaS application will require ongoing maintenance and support. That’s why, at Idea Maker, we offer affordable post-release support options to keep your app functioning correctly.
If you already have a SaaS application and are looking to migrate it to a new hosting provider, we can help ease the process. We can also port your SaaS application to different platforms. For example, our team can reshape your web application into a mobile app.
APIs allow us to conveniently extend the functionality of your SaaS application; however, APIs for your required functionality may not always be available. As a result, our team often opts to custom-build our own APIs.
SaaS applications have several identifying factors that set them apart from other types of software.
For complex developments, your mobile app will require third-party plugins and API integrations. At Idea Maker, we have access to an extensive library of add-ons to fortify your application with solid functionality, meeting your requirements.
We use Google's Flutter for cross-platform mobile app development, meaning we can simultaneously build iOS and Android applications for the price and time of one. This is an excellent option for businesses that want maximum exposure at a cost-effective rate.
Hybrid mobile apps combine a mobile device's native technology with online languages such as HTML5. At Idea Maker, we can develop hybrid mobile applications that fuse the accessibility of browser-based software with native functionality.
If you require a mobile app for one specific device, such as iOS, Idea Maker has you covered. We provide native development services that allow you to take advantage of powerful onboard processing capabilities and device features. Native development is an excellent option for technical applications.
Through our intelligent API technology, we can implement multiple payment processing methods for your customers to use on your app. This increases trust between you and consumers, as applications with only one payment portal are viewed as unsafe.
A refined user interface (UI) is key to an excellent user experience (UX) which is crucial for keeping consumers engaged. That's why, as Idea Maker, our team of specialist designers takes extra care to ensure your application's UI is well polished and suitable for development.
SaaS applications are capable of complex functionality without creating a heavy strain on users’ computers. In fact, SaaS platforms get the functional capabilities of both websites and desktop applications.
As SaaS platforms run within browsers, they can be used across browser-capable devices, regardless of operating system. This makes SaaS platforms accessible to a wide audience of users.
SaaS applications make it easy for developers to provide administrative users with a Content Management System (CMS) that allows them to make changes to the platform without in-depth technical knowledge.
Because SaaS platforms are cloud-based, they are relatively easy to scale, i.e., to increase user and storage capacity. SaaS applications can be scaled simply by upgrading hosting plans or adding a drive to your server stack.
As SaaS applications are cloud-based, this means users do not have to manually download updates when they are released. Instead, updates can automatically be applied from the hosting server at a time of low usage. This helps maintain a positive user experience.
SaaS platforms allow businesses to offer users a subscription model at different tiers of pricing for different functionality. For example, the lower the pricing tier, the fewer features the user can access. This model has helped many businesses become successful.
With a team of developers skilled in a variety of development languages and frameworks, we utilize high-quality technology to ensure your SaaS application is well-built.
Java is a widely used object-oriented programming language known for its platform independence and versatility in creating software applications. It combines a robust and secure design with a vast ecosystem of libraries and frameworks for building diverse applications ranging from web and mobile to enterprise systems.
Developed by Microsoft, C# is a modern, object-oriented programming language that’s known for its simplicity and versatility. It is commonly used for developing Windows applications, web services, and games, and is compatible with the .NET framework.
Python is a high-level, interpreted programming language that’s known for its simplicity and readability. It is widely used for web development, data analysis, artificial intelligence, and automation due to its extensive libraries and easy syntax.
HTML and CSS are fundamental languages used together for creating web pages. HTML provides the structure and content of a webpage, while CSS defines its visual style and layout, allowing for the presentation and design to be separated from the underlying structure.
Our knowledge of programming and development is not limited to the above languages. In fact, our developers have a solid understanding of the most popular and industry-standard development languages and models.
Since our founding in 2016, we’ve made a name for ourselves by developing feature-rich enterprise-level applications. These SaaS applications come packed full of valuable and essential features neatly presented in a visually appealing package. We can provide SaaS applications for almost any enterprise-level problem.

Why should I choose Idea Maker for SaaS project development?
There are three main reasons to choose Idea Maker. First, we are a US-based company subject to the laws of the United States, so you won’t have to deal with international issues. Second, we have an excellent reputation with many positive testimonials on our website, powered and verified by Clutch. Lastly, we have developed a large number of complex SaaS projects.

Can I convert an existing app to a SaaS business model?
Depending on how the app was written, converting it to the SaaS model may be too costly while preserving the original code. The only way to know if a rewrite is necessary is to have an experienced developer audit your code.
How long does it take to build a SaaS product?
SaaS projects are complex because you’re building software made to be used by many users. We recommend a minimum of four to six months to develop a SaaS product. This time includes drafting specifications, flashing out the design, coding the project, and building wireframes for approval by the client.
Is SaaS secure?
The security of a SaaS project depends on the company running it. However, it can be secure if the project is managed by a reputable company that takes all the necessary precautions to ensure maximum security.
How much do I need to be involved in SaaS product development?
We are used to delivering complete products with minimal involvement. You determine your own level of engagement in the development. However, we request that you review wireframes and mockups to ensure we understand the direction and scope of your project. Additionally, we’ll provide weekly updates and a final walkthrough at the end of the project to help with any lingering questions.
What recent projects have you done involving SaaS product development?
We have several examples in our Portfolio. Tru Academy is an online learning website that allows teachers to create their own lectures. List Your Name Guide, where cleaning services and providers can handle scheduling and payments. UGIG, a platform to help scientists and researchers to find test candidates.
What are the costs of a SaaS product development project?
The cost of a SaaS product depends on the scope of the project and the extras required. Several factors may affect the price, such as the number of APIs used, 3rd-party integration, HIPAA security, FinTech systems, and more. We can only offer an accurate cost estimation after talking with you and understanding your needs and requirements.
What platform/framework do you use for SaaS development?
Our specialty is Django, a Python framework. For databases, we use PostgreSQL. For front-end, Vue.JS. And for mobile development, we prefer React Native. All of which run on Linux systems.
Why should I custom build my SaaS platform?
If you’re selling a SaaS product to clients, then you should use custom development, as it allows you to differentiate yourself from your competitors. Custom development leverages your expertise to create a unique product, providing a superior experience.
