There comes a time when every business has to choose the best software to maximise its growth.
Whether you want to replace an existing system or invest in a completely new solution, you have two options: an off-the-shelf package or bespoke software services. Despite the relative ease and affordability of generic solutions, custom software continues to grow in popularity. But why are so many companies choosing bespoke software and does your company really need it?
What is bespoke software?
Bespoke software is tailored toward specific users and unique business requirements. Unlike off-the-shelf software, which is designed as a large-scale generic solution, bespoke software services are completely customisable. A bespoke software company can provide stand-alone products for different devices and applications, or it can design software that seamlessly integrates with existing systems.
What does bespoke software offer that off-the-shelf doesn’t?
Tailor-made software can improve productivity, customer service, employee wellbeing and sales. Off-the-shelf products might seem like quick, lower budget options, but they are too broad in scope to align with specific business needs and USPs. Bespoke software is scalable and secure, which aligns with organisational objectives.
Does my company need a bespoke software development company?
The right solution for your company depends on your specific circumstances. But bespoke software has many advantages, making it worth the initial investment because you will ultimately save time and money. Developing features around your organisation’s unique workflow will minimise the complexity of your software. A bespoke software company can develop and maintain a custom solution to help streamline your processes.
The right software partner will take the time to understand your business and customers. They will be on hand to offer expert advice and provide tailored training to your staff throughout the planning stages, during development and after implementation.
