What is custom software?
Custom software is the development of software for a specific organization or a specific group of users. This software is designed to address specific needs and is not intended for resale.
Why not buy something off the shelf?
Off the shelf software is designed for a large group of users all with a specific need. If you can’t find a specific feature or the software doesn’t address your needs in general, you can’t do anything to customize the package to accommodate your requirements.
Custom software addresses this need. The customer specifies to the developer exactly how the end product needs to operate. Once completed the release product will address all of the needs of the customer along with addressing any branding needs or infrastructure requirements.
What are the pros of customer software?
The benefit of customer software is that it addresses the user’s specific needs. Customers of custom software can see dramatic increases in the efficiency of their internal operations along with addressing the need to securely share information with customers, vendors, and associates. Custom software can also be modified to address the ever changing needs of the customers’ business as the business grows and evolves.
What are the cons of custom software?
Custom software can generally cost more than off the shelf solutions. However a properly designed and implemented package can address the requirement of the customer exactly and the additional costs can be easily justified in improved work flows and communication efficiencies. The custom software provider can also provide support services tailored to the customer’s need.
How to select a developer.
There are a lot of factors that can affect the decision to select a custom software provider: cost, time lines, technologies, etc. While the overall cost of a package is usually not set in stone due to unforeseen complications and incomplete requirements, the provider should be able to provide you with a detailed project and and estimate.
