There are many software solutions to help make you, your team and your business more productive. If you are considering utilising enterprise software to maximise your business’ potential, there are two main options; a commercial package with a one-size-fits-most approach or a bespoke software solution that is specifically designed to meet the needs of your business. In relation to commercial packages, you may have encountered several solutions that just aren’t the right ‘fit’ for your business.
Often off-the-shelf software solutions do what you need them to but they often also have many unused features, which can increase the learning curve for team members which can decrease productivity. Often these solutions have features that your business will not need and cannot be easily configured with your existing processes. Also, if you are considering a product that has planned updates and new features being developed that would be critical to increasing your business efficiency, but you have no control over when or how the developer releases these updates. If any of these scenarios are too similar for you, it may be worth considering utilising a bespoke software solution.
How can bespoke software benefit your business?
1.Direct Relationship With Developers
When you partner with our software development team, you have more control over the type of software that is being developed. Through continuous updates developed in an ‘agile environment’ you will be updated on all aspects of the development and you can interject with your thoughts/opinions at all stages of the development. Through explaining your business and the needed function of the software, our software development team can develop a solution specifically made for your business.
While working with our software development team, they will draw on their vast industry knowledge and expertise to suggest functionalities to allow your software solution to blend seamlessly into your business. Your software development should adapt to your needs and not the other way around.
When you adopt a bespoke software into your business, we will work with you to provide continued support. Our software developers have an innate understanding of each software solution they develop. This means that you don’t have to wait for an essential update or spend large amounts of time going through FAQ sections and message boards to try to find an article to help solve a problem. Our team will be able to help you quickly and efficiently address any issues that may arise. Read more about our IT Support.
4.Software That Grows With Your Business
A key benefit of working with a bespoke software solution is that not only does it meets your current needs, but it also has the capability to grow with your business. A bespoke software solution will allow you to commission new features that help your business adapt and easily grow.
5.Save Time Training Staff
Without unneeded features, a bespoke solution will be easy to train your staff in. Through working with your developer, a custom software solution is designed to integrate with your existing systems. This lowers the amount of training required as you team will be learning about a software that integrates with your existing processes.
