With the rise of eCommerce and growing digital dependence among people, delivery applications are one of the most lucrative business opportunities.

Trends in the food delivery industry show that it is expected to grow at an annual rate of 7.5%, leading to a market volume of approximately $164 million by 2024. Developing a delivery app can thus be a profitable decision. In this article, we will talk about why you should invest in a delivery app.
The range of on-demand delivery applications can be vast, ranging from food products, clothing items, and other essential and non-essential items. A delivery app that uses an on-demand mechanism allows customers to order and deliver goods from their desired locations. Most delivery service applications have a visualization dashboard that allows them to follow a specific route. They can choose the item they want to be delivered, then select the GPS location where they want it delivered.

Different types of delivery applications

  • Food Delivery App
  • Health Services App
  • Tradesmen Service App
  • Transport Delivery App
  • Car Rental Delivery App
  • Driver App

Now, the question comes: how much does a delivery app cost?

The cost of a delivery app depends upon various things, –

  1. The product and service you will be offering through that app.
  2. The features you will be integrating into that app.
  3. The number of login areas, and dashboards for members.

We must understand that every feature you offer will come at a price. Getting a delivery app done requires building a complete technology suite with features, navigation, and visual representation, as required by the customers.

Let’s talk about some of the most common delivery app features

Delivery apps do have several standard and critical features. Here are a few examples:

  • Automatic Location Detection
  • Delivery Location Setting
  • Menu Display Platform
  • Delivery Agent Application
  • Vendor Panel Dashboard
  • Real-time Tracking
  • Delivery Agent Monitoring
We have been developing mobile apps for the last 10 years. And, we have been contacted by companies asking us one similar question –

Should we develop a mobile app or a web app?

Here, you need to understand that both a web application and a mobile application have different qualities and benefits to offer. It is a lot easier to use a mobile application than a web app that runs on a web browser (single page).

However, if you want your app to work on both the web and mobile, you can opt for hybrid apps.

Now that you know the benefits of having a delivery application, you should not give it a second thought. A delivery app can allow you to enter various other industries. Besides, a delivery app can allow you to partner with other companies.
