On These Problems

No Off-The-Shelf Solution

Perhaps you’ve tried existing software solutions that aren’t quite hitting the luxurious mark or are missing key features your business requires. We can curate a bespoke, software solution that meets your unique, high-end business needs and saves you time and money in the long run.

Outdated Processes

If your company is operating on dated processes that are slow and manpower intensive, we can develop custom software to improve your business’s efficiency, reduce human error and simplify your ways of working.

Slower to Market

Without the appropriate expertise, the app development process can be slow. KIJO can help you get a minimum viable product (MVP) to market quickly.

Inefficient Software

If there’s a general consensus in your company that certain software is outdated or frustrating to work with, KIJO can rebuild or update this to improve efficiency and ease of working.

Nowhere to Test Ideas

You may have a brilliant application idea but no way of testing if it will work or be worth the investment. You can use an agile process with KIJO to develop part of it and test it with users to be sure of its feasibility before implementation.

Process
01
/ Strategy

Discovery & Strategy

Initially we carry out multiple discovery meetings and workshops with you and your team and once we feel we have delved deep enough, we create the application strategy document. This document is central to how we work on the project and the solutions that we create.

02
/ User Journey

User Journey

Every user on your premium app will follow a user journey (UI). So, the clearer we map this journey out, the easier your users will find using the application. This ease of use will lead to an excellent user experience and thus, a higher conversion ratio for your intended goals.

03
/ Design System

Design System

We’ll plan & create a branded design system that covers all the elements needed to build an app. In the design system we detail colour palettes, font choices, button styles, input styles and hone in on the detail.

04
/ UI/UX Design

UI/UX Design

Using the design system created, our specialist designers will start to create a modern app user interface (UI) using all the brand system elements. We’ll invite you to experience these UI motions by creating an interactive clickable prototype in the interface design software, Figma. This means you can experience the app, click and navigate through it, before it’s built.

05
/ Development

Development

KIJO’s app development team will transform the UX design into a fully functioning app. We’ll develop it across a number of milestones including regular meetings to discuss progress, priorities and testing feedback.

06
/ Q&A

Q&A

Throughout the development process, each individual element and feature of your luxury app will be tested and signed off, ensuring absolute quality assurance. Once all the features of the app have been signed off we’ll host an internal & external testing process that allows for third party user testing.

Booking Systems & eCommerce
Booking Systems & eCommerce

Do your users need to book appointments? We can integrate that service into your app by developing an intelligent booking service. Or perhaps you want your users to buy products or services through your app? We can build a seamless system for in-app purchases or subscriptions that sync up to your website’s eCommerce platform.

08 / 09
App
3D Builders

If your product has multiple variations, then we can build your app a 3D builder so user’s can experience the product in their preferred variation instantly and then zoom, spin and change the product according to their taste. Then, using augmented reality, they can get a taste for your product in their space – all before purchase!

/ Client Testimonials

“I was really impressed with how well things ran on this project. The KIJO team was able to translate our ask into a reality with very little intervention from us, and it was basically perfect on the first round. I also appreciated how various members of the team offered us additional help/feedback outside of the scope of the project!”

A Curated Review of the Top 10 Luxury Watch Websites

When it comes to luxury watches, the words elegant, professional, and timeless may come to mind.

Frequently Asked Questions

01
How much does it cost to build a luxury app?

The cost of building a luxury app can vary hugely depending on your project aims and ambitions. However, due to the development process of applications, a budget of less than £20,000 would be unrealistic.

02
How long does it take to develop a luxury app?

This really depends on the feature set of the app solution we are creating. The more complex the app, the longer development will take. We will be able to give you an estimated project length in the project proposal we create after carrying out a consultation with you.

03
Will you release the app in the app stores?

Yes. Our app package includes managing the release of the app in the app stores and we will guide you through this process. Once the app has been released, we can transfer the app over to a different app store account if required. Alternatively, we can also guide you through an app release through your own app store accounts.

04
Can you advise me on how to gain users for our app?

Here at KIJO, we don’t offer app marketing services in-house. However, we can refer you to a third party agency who will offer you preferential rates because of our referral, should you use them for app marketing services.

05
Is the app’s IP ours once it’s built?

This is all handled in the project contract. We’ll transfer all new IP created on the project, if requested, over to you. We will also discuss any existing KIJO IP we wish to use on the project (if any) and the licensing terms associated with that IP.

06
Do you have examples of luxury apps you’ve previously built?

Yes, we have lots of examples of luxury apps we’ve built. The best way to check out our recent app portfolio is via the following link: https://kijo.co.uk/work/apps/
