Moreover, it will be beneficial to invest in white labeling the app rather than reinventing the wheel. It will not only save money but a huge time also. A startup should ensure that the project is cost-effective. App White labeling is one of the most basic and quick versions that a startup can go with. It will cost up to as lowest as $10,000.
