At the root of it, the engineers and architects at Enola Labs work to help businesses solve complex technological problems. We offer a variety of services to help companies in nearly every business sector to achieve their technology goals. Our team is well known for their engineering and architecture capabilities, which are provided through the following dimensions:

Legacy modernization is an important best practice for nearly every business. Legacy modernization ensures old and outdated methods of data storage are being replaced with new methods to keep your data safe and failure-proof. Neglecting legacy modernization puts your data at security risk and is expensive to maintain. We implement best practices in legacy modernization to ensure a smooth update to your legacy system or a seamless transition to the AWS cloud.

We’ve worked on projects ranging from complex, hardware integrated software solutions, to enterprise legacy system upgrades, to consumer facing web and mobile applications. We are engineers and architects with deep subject matter expertise in health tech, mission critical systems, and business enabling new technologies.

All of our team, including all developers, are based in the U.S., the bulk of which are right here in Austin, Texas. We never outsource our work overseas as to ensure our quality services are delivered on-time and on-budget.

The cost for app development will depend on countless factors including items like functionality, design requirements, 3rd party service integrations, backend services, and more. We can also work with clients to craft a solution that aligns with their budget. Pairing down features, utilizing template designs or even considering a hybrid approach as opposed to native development can have dramatic cost savings. For a ballpark estimate of what you can expect to spend on your project, see below. Keep in mind these are general estimates, not project quotes:

Prototype Software $10-50K
Simple mobile and web apps with limited functionality. Between $35K and $75K
Mobile App Development to Complement Existing Full-Feature Web App Between $75K and $200K
Development of First Phase of a Complex System $125K - $250K
Multi-Phase Application With Complex Functionality $250K+

Absolutely. Our consultants can complete the first step of our process, research & development to assist in hashing out your ideas before investing in the actual development of the product. This step involves advisement on the technical build of your project and can help you determine a rough estimate of what it would cost to bring your idea to fruition. We’ve even worked with clients in crafting an HTML or design prototype that can be used for market testing and while looking for funding.

Our developers have diverse backgrounds in engineering, allowing us to develop products in the language that will best fit your specific project specifications for optimal performance. We have extensive experience in native mobile development languages for iOS and Android as well as all popular web languages including HTML/CSS, JavaScript, java, PHP, Python and several web-based frameworks.
