Gigster – Turn Ideas into Apps

Gigster

Overview

Got a startup idea? That is all you would need to get a fully functional app built for you.Gigster is a full-serviced technology development shop, rather than a marketplace where you have to manage all the resources you find.

Send Gigster your app idea and it sends you back that app. Gigster aims to simplify the process to get the product ready, without any hassles. Just go to Gigster site, instant message with a sales engineer, tell them what you want built, and in 10 minutes you get a guaranteed quote for what it would be costing to make the desired product and how long it will take.

Give Gigster the go-ahead, and it will be managed by an elite and highly qualified set of freelance coders and designers to be building your product and provide you up-to date statusreports each week. Once you get your project back, Gigster will even maintain the code, and you could pay to add more upgrades or new features.

The Idea

Gigster helps entrepreneurs affordably develop a minimum viable product so that they can get the necessary funding and much needed attention they need to build a company. The main objective of Gigster is to take the existing hassles out of building an app.

The company only focuses in finding top-notch freelance developers, designers, and project managers with pedigrees from MIT, CalTech, Google, and Stripe, and only accepts 5% of its total applicants. A sales manager is the one who personally discusses proposals with clients, to know their needs and requirements. By using the Artificial Intelligence engine, he/she calculates the cost efficiency, subsequently comes back with a price quote and production schedule in about 10 minutes. Then Gigster manages the entire development process through delivery of the fully-functional app.

How it Works

Gigster does the dirty work for you to convert Your Idea into an effective App. The way Gigster works is simple. As a customer, you write in with the query, what you want your business app to do. Then, Gigster analyses your request, figures out the best team needed for the job – including programmers, product managers, and designers – and gives you a flat quote with a guaranteed return of the desired product

In short, you can call it, “Push a button and eventually get an efficient software.”
If you need software, Gigster provides the easiest way to just get it done, whether you yourself are technical or not. And even if you are of a technical background, it would be cheaper than hiring a full team to get the work done.

Many of the 350-plus developers on Gigster are mostly past and current employees of top-notch companies like Google, Facebook, and Amazon. They are equipped to handle all your development needs, from a complete buildout of your app to a short dashso as to create that perfect feature for your site. There is no project too big or too small.
