Custom software development refers to the creation of tailor-made software intended to address the specific needs of a business or user(s). Unlike the commercial off-the-shelf software or the free and open source software developed for the mass market, custom software is designed to accommodate a client’s particular preferences and expectations.
Customized software saves your IT expenditure by offering subscription-based pricing and reduces your maintenance costs. Custom application development enhances your operational efficiency, saves your labor and training costs, and offers you the ability to scale with the market needs.
A property management application that allows field agents/ brokers to coordinate between buyers and sellers is an example of customized software in real estate. An example of customized software in the healthcare sector will be system that enables clinics or hospitals to track patient appointments.
It’s tough to estimate the exact development cost of custom software because every piece of software is tailor-made and unique. No two custom-built applications are the same. Hence, sharing an approximation of general costs without understanding the project’s specific requirements is difficult.
There are numerous aspects that contribute to the costs of custom software development which include the size of the software (the number of pages/ screens), the complexity of the software, design specifications, integration with other systems, migration of existing data, usage patterns, and so on.
A custom business software solution increases your process efficiency through process automation. Through automation, your key resources will be able to better focus on the crucial activities that will add value to your business. Custom software scales with your business needs to accommodate new changes or processes. If you need additional licenses or packaged applications, it can eat up your IT budget. This is where custom software comes to your rescue as it offers the advantage of lower integration costs.
Custom software development can either replace or consolidate your existing solutions to achieve greater productivity, thus improving your competitive advantage. It allows you to build a system around your current processes. Plus, your business will stay up-to-date, limit tedious paper-based and manual processes, and reduce the risk of human errors. Custom solutions can speed up deployment as well as user adoption as it does not demand extensive technical know-how to use and manage a custom application.
Your business requires custom software:
if you have to re-enter the same data into multiple applications,
if you need to accelerate your speed of response to customer queries,
if you want to send regular notifications to your clients automatically,
if you have to perform tedious calculations periodically to get up-to-date information about your business activities, and
finally to automate a large number of your business processes to enhance your efficiency.
Yes, we provide technical support and service to the software we have developed during the time we administer them. We can also further develop your software if you need to implement new features or integrate third-party services that weren't there before. However, most of this comes with a cost on the client's part.
