Is custom software development necessary for my business?

Depending on your business needs, custom software is heavily focussed on the processes of the organisation. Each process in the business should be evaluated to determine if it can improve efficiency.

When considering custom software, some of the determinants could be the cost of development, from internal costs through to the costs of the creation and adoption of the new software.

Maintenance and new updates are also important factors to consider with internal changes within an organisation as well as external changes such as technology and customer needs.

Custom software vs off-the-shelf software

The cost of custom software is much less than you may think compared to the off-the-shelf alternative solutions.

Despite off-the-shelf being initially cheaper, it will never be able to customise to your exact needs. It will potentially cost more to customise an off-the-shelf system and doing so will never truly deliver the focus custom software development offers.

A custom software solution will be much easier to maintain and keep in step with any changes to current or new business processes. Organisations end up paying more money in maintenance costs for an off-the-shelf package as it moves further away from your initial specification.
