Reasons Why Business Owners are Opting for Bespoke Software over Off-the-Shelf Software Solutions

Sep 22nd 2014 at 5:22 AM

Technology is evolving at lightning speeds. Businesses that fail to keep up with the changes are left behind by companies that have the technological resources to stay afloat.  In this market, those who invest in bespoke software development often fares much better than those who don’t.

It is time to consider custom software development no matter what the size of your business. To invest in a system made just for your organisation is one of the most crucial steps to grow, especially if you rely on technology for your day-to-day operations. Off-the-shelf solutions can be helpful to some extent, but they have plenty of limitations that imperil your business. Investing in bespoke applications and programs that specifically addresses your business' need is the most practical route.

To outsource your software development requirements might be the most sensible thing to do if you don't have in-house solutions to fill this gap. Here are the top reasons why the most successful business owners prefer custom software to off-the-shelf options:

  • Custom software is designed according to your business' specific requirements, thus guaranteeing that all aspects of your operations are addressed. One of the major limitations of off-the-shelf programs is that its features and functions are mostly generalised to include processes that the majority of businesses use. These commercial systems force you to follow the same processes as your rivals and give you a little room for gaining an edge over competitors who use the same system.
  • Custom software development allows greater flexibility, helping you achieve specific goals the way you want. Bespoke software can be designed to meet specific requirements and adapt to your organisation’s nuances. Moreover, the custom software developer can provide personalised support.
  • Custom software development saves a great deal of time. You may need to wait a few months for the initial system to launch, but future developments are easier and quicker to apply and integrate.
  • Custom software development does not need intensive training. The interface can be redesigned to the familiarity and ease of your employees. You need not spend time and money training workers to use the custom system.
  • Custom software development translates to waived software license fee. It may cost more up front, but it is yours free and clear. Bespoke systems pay for themselves within a few months or years.

So, it is essential to hire the right software developer for the better execution of your business operations.
