As your business grows there comes a point where the technology you are relying on can no longer handle what you need it to do. At this stage, you may, therefore, be thinking about the different options available. Whether to go for an off the shelf product or if you need something that is tailored exactly to your business. Although the thought of custom software development may sound a little daunting, it doesn’t have to be. By choosing the right collaborative partner and working closely with them you can achieve an excellent solution that works exactly the way you need it to.
Here are our Top 6 Reasons for choosing Custom Software Development:
You get an Intuitive Solution
A custom solution is designed for you and built for your exact business’ processes. As a result, this makes it much more intuitive and easier for your staff to use. You decide exactly how it works and what it does without extra features being tied in.
Custom solutions can be built to seamlessly integrate with your current business systems. Rather than start from scratch, custom solutions can build on the systems already there to provide a better user experience.
Custom solutions can be developed to automate certain parts of your business to a level that could not be achieved with an off the shelf product. This automation can save you time and consequently allow you to focus on more important business activities.
Both during development and after. Agile development allows for a collaborative approach throughout development to ensure the solution provides the expected results. Once implemented custom solutions can grow as your business grows. They can quickly be adapted to integrate with different systems and can change and develop as your business does.
Custom solutions can save you money from an efficiency point of view in the long term. But can also work out cheaper as unlike an off the shelf solution you are only paying for the features that you need. So if the project is carefully scoped out it can be more cost effective as you are not paying for additional features that you will not make use of.
Higher levels of support are often factored in with a bespoke development. By working with the developers directly they have a greater knowledge of your system and understand the importance of the solution for your business operations.
