So, you need an estimation to build a mobile or web app?
The answer is not as simple as the request since there are so many things that go into an estimate. Metaphorically speaking, it’s the same as asking a home builder how much it will cost to build a house. Do you want 1 or 2 bedrooms? How many floors? What type of fixtures do you want?

When dealing with heavy workload functionalities that can have a big impact on web application performance, you may face the need of running it asynchronously (scheduled or not).

Once spread on different components, each with its own responsibility, your code can even look cleaner, more isolated and can be easier to maintain.
