When should you consider custom software development?
An off-the-shelf solution can appear a more affordable, faster alternative to custom software. Most organizations find this is not the case. There are several scenarios where custom software development will be more suited:
Uniqueness of your operations
Often, in an attempt to roll-out a solution quickly and save costs, organizations try to fit an off-the-shelf system, promising industry best practice, around their unique business operations. Which is the exact same thing their competitors are doing. We will capture the uniqueness of your business and differentiate your company in the marketplace with custom software.
Hidden cost of integration
A common issue we see with organizations who choose off-the-shelf software is insufficient integration. Inadequate integration results in staff having to enter and maintain information in multiple systems without a single source of truth - a productivity nightmare. We will build you a custom software system that fully integrates to existing business systems.
The customization trap
The majority of off-the-shelf software will not allow meaningful customization to its core functionality. Adding or subtracting features could lead to too many or too few functions for your company. The custom software system we will build for you will cater for the specific functions your business requires - this way you get, and pay for, what you need.
Why should you consider custom software development?
A software system tailored to your company's specific needs with a focus on scalability and efficiency will mean the difference between offering a commoditized service or a highly differentiated one at a more profitable price. Here are a number of ways custom software will benefit your business:
A system that is specifically designed with your needs in mind will enable your team to work faster and smarter. One integrated software platform, rather than separate software systems, will yield major efficiency gains as all the data is in one place and staffs doesn't have to switch between different systems to get their work done.
A custom system that is ideally suited to your specific business operations will provide the means to outperform your competition. This advantage continues to grow the more you invest in your proprietary system.
Over time your business needs will change and your industry will evolve. Being able to react quickly to these changes can mean the difference between market domination and obsolesces. Custom software systems can be extended and enhanced quickly to cater for these changes.
Custom Software Development Process
We use a flexible hybrid approach a refined proven methodology. What we have found is that there is no single development methodology that fits all clients. A custom software development process that is
too rigid may not work for highly innovative fast-moving organizations. While a highly flexible development methodology is too
disruptive for the more traditional, multinational organizations who have shareholders to answer to. It's all about balance in the end.
This is why we use a Hybrid model. A mix of the structured Waterfall approach combined with the flexibility of Agile. Depending
on the client, and the environment the client operates in, we are able to pull the levers in terms of how flexible or structured
the software development process needs to be.
