Whitelabel App - one App with many faces

As a company in the digital world, it’s hard to do everything. Website, social media, upholding a certain reputation - and also developing an app? It’s a lot. Yet this is precisely why white label solutions exist. Allowing a company to focus on what it does best while also being able to offer certain services that it wouldn’t be able to otherwise.

What exactly is a white label app? 

White label means a product or service that is offered under the name of a brand other than the manufacturer. With white label apps, developers offer the base app which companies can buy or rent. The definition of white labels implies that it is an unprocessed product, which is then customised with the company’s logo, label and brand identity.

What are the benefits of using a white label solution over developing itself?

Software development is far more than coding, and incurs many risks. It involves analysis, design, development and testing phases - all of which are resource-intensive and costly. White label software is usually sold as a software as a service model, making it very attractive to businesses who cannot fork up the entire cost of app development upfront. Not to mention the upfront investment for software licences, data centre space and servers, all of which the white label company provides.

As already mentioned, risk also plays a crucial role when choosing to develop in-house or using a white label software. Enthusiasm is a good thing, but experience is usually more important in software development, and building software from the ground up generally comes with many pitfalls. White label software is made by experts in their field, allowing companies to focus on their core business while also being part of the digital world with minimal effort.

Time is also a big factor. While the development process for an app isn’t done in a day, customizing a white label app doesn’t take much time at all. This way, businesses can get started right away.
