The value of bespoke software development

Introduction


We’ve said it before, and we’ll happily say it again – and again if we must. Bespoke software development is an art form (which technically means we’re artists. Yes, we like the sound of that).

An art form in which there are always creative and technical parts of the process; an approach; a framework to guide the way. Yet no two pieces of bespoke software are ever the same.

Here’s why tailor making your business software can add great business value.

Achieve exactly what you want


By our reckoning, at the very essence of a software product is the refinement of business processes. Taking what you have and implementing the most fitting technology to making those processes better. Enabling greater business insights, improving productivity, streamlining reporting, empowering employees.

So, it makes sense that rather than investing in an off the shelf package that covers some of your requirements, perhaps meeting halfway or trying to slot into the nearest solution, you actually have a product that is a perfect business fit. A solution individually crafted to meet your exact needs. No compromises.

Create a truly intuitive user experience


Getting real results, the kind that can actually power your business forward, is more likely when the users of the software are in the driving seat. Actively involved in designing and developing from the ground up. Getting the user’s buy in from the requirements stage, and every stage thereafter, can make the world of difference to user engagement and enjoyment.

In our eyes an exceptional user experience should materialise when using a piece of software feels like second nature in next to no time. With the user’s input from the outset and throughout the development process, interactions with the software can be made truly intuitive.

Gain a mark of distinction


Your business is unique. Achieving innovation through software design could give you an even greater edge. You know, the kind that could really set you apart from your nearest competitor. Make you quicker; smarter; able to pave the way for more opportunities. That kind of edge.

Having your very own software can give your business a true mark of distinction. With an ace up your sleeve that is totally in sync with your people and your operations, you stand to gain a real competitive advantage.

Scalable to business growth


Software products are rarely standalone – they are usually part of a wider software strategy. A strategy that looks at where you are now, and where you are aiming to be.

With this in mind, software development teams are able to help bridge gaps. To build a software system that is scalable; that will grow with your business. Whether that be migrating to a cloud based system or connecting teams with a suite of mobile business apps.

Software developers are problem solvers and forward thinkers; always working out solutions to enable you to keep on progressing. To create accessible, flexible software that evolves with you.

Reduce limits, risk and long term costs


So often we see companies adapting their working methods to suit the pre-packaged database or desktop application at hand. Making the best of what they have. The beauty of having your software system tailor made is that you make technology work for you, not the other way round. Freeing you from limitations. Making every user interaction meaningful; making them count.

As with any investment, maximising business value is fundamental to bespoke software development. When you design a software system specifically for your business operations, return on investment is likely to be seen quicker. Plus, when you own your software outright, you will not be charged licensing fees per user so you can grow as big as you see fit.

There’s no worry talk of ‘if at the end of twelve months this doesn’t work, we’ll have to start again.’ When you develop software in an agile development environment, the system is constantly being tested and refined until it’s just right. Sure, that can take time, but in the grand scheme of things you’re getting great business value. Mitigating risk by ensuring that the finished solution meets exacting standards; and ticks every box.

Integrate all corners of your business


Bespoke software systems are all about making the latest and greatest technology work for you. And when it comes to technology selection there are choices, oh so many choices.

A fundamental part of our role as software developers is to recommend the optimum technology for your line of work. To decipher what operating systems would work best; how cloud technology could be best incorporated for maximum security and accessibility.

To source the best approach for integrating your systems and migrating your data to something new.

Centralising your IT systems is more achievable with bespoke software. You have more control to do what is needed to connect all the corners of your business together.

Recieve valued support and advice


Typically speaking, software developers like to nurture their handiwork. To ensure it reaches its full potential. With custom built software, the continued support you receive is often from the creators themselves. Who, as they know the system inside out and back to front, are able to offer quick and prompt responses to any issues that may occur after deployment. They’re able to readily assist with upgrades, enhancements and training support for new users. Providing help and peace of mind long-term.

Become part of something special


Yes, the process of software development can at first seem like an overwhelming one. However, when approached methodically and with care, the process becomes manageable, and dare we say, enjoyable.

It’s a collaborative effort; a labour of love. There’s much to learn. Having a one of a kind masterpiece is quite an achievement to be a part of. Plus, it means you can be in our club, and call yourselves artists too if you like.

So, there you have it. There are so many gains from tailor-making your own business software. Achieving greater control, acquiring a unique mark of distinction, making interactions count, opening up opportunities to achieve so much more.
