For over 25 years, we have worked with forward thinking organisations who are passionate about leading their industry. Using the latest technology, we invent custom software development systems that enable our clients to outperform their competition.
When should you consider custom software development?
An off-the-shelf solution can appear a more affordable, faster alternative to custom software development. Most organisations 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, organisations 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 organisations 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 customisation trap
The majority of off-the-shelf software will not allow meaningful customisation 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 commoditised 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 staff don’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.
Improve Customer Experience
A custom solution will help leverage the unique value add of your business. A tailored and intuitive portal will improve the overall experience your customers have with you, creating loyalty, creating a customer first strategy and driving revenue.
