Should you develop custom software for your business?

Marc Andreessen is right. Software is eating the world. Will you use custom software to create new revenue streams or reduce operational costs? Should you build or should you buy? Should you hire an in-house team to develop your software product or should you outsource? When existing SaaS products don’t solve your company’s exact problems, it often makes sense to build custom software to compete in today’s data driven world. Open source programming languages and cloud infrastructure even the playing field for startups and SMBs by significantly reducing the capital required to build, operate and maintain custom software products.

Many companies look to use or modify existing SaaS applications to streamline business processes. While this is a good approach to start, your needs may change as your business grows and you may need to write custom software or modules that work with the SaaS software you’ve procured. When you build your software solution from the ground up, you can create workflows that give you a competitive advantage or resell the software you build to generate new revenue streams.

What is Custom Software Development & Why is it Needed?

In today's competitive market, developing an application or software that meets specific business requirements is a necessity for survival. Custom Software Development is the process of building, deploying, and maintaining software for a specific organization or a set of users. Such software is designed to specifically address the users' needs better than more traditional and off-the-shelf software can. Custom software development is known for its:

Efficiency:

By making the processes swift, custom software helps to increase productivity because now it is tailored according to your business needs. You won't have to dedicate considerable time to changing your business processes to adapt to the standardized software.

Increased security:

Another advantage is that security with custom software is stronger than boxed software. This will make your product less susceptible to security threats.

Personalized customer experience:

Customers are coming to expect personalized experiences. With custom software, you can address the unique needs of your users. Customized customer relationship management (CRM) platforms can also be leveraged for the same. The key is to better understand what will suit your business needs.

Increased profitability

Custom software can help solve many of your business problems. You can even license your custom-built software or sell the software to other businesses based on the terms and conditions of the project.

Scalability

Business processes will become more complex as your organization grows. With custom software development, this won't be an issue as you can scale your software accordingly. This will ensure you won't have to deal with incurring costs that come with additional licensing or subscriptions for additional features.

Easy integration

Are you considering investing in commercial software? Your biggest concern might be to determine if your software will work with the existing applications. By getting custom software built, you can save this further investment and leverage integration with your other business applications.

Custom software design

Here you can maintain consistency in appearance and different behavior patterns. With no design limitations, your software design can be customized based on your company style. Rather than having to conform to the boxed software limitations, you can maximize your business potential.

Independence

Many lags happen while dealing with the software vendor. You will save far more time that can be used for being more productive with custom software development services. You don't have to deal with price hikes for getting a license for your packaged software.

Our Process

Requirements gathering

You have to evaluate your business requirements then identify specific goals once you have decided that you need to develop a custom application. During the initial requirement gathering stage, we hold meetings with your team to gather all project requirements. In this stage, our developers and designers understand project specifications, who the users of the software are going to be, goals to be achieved with the software, and how you want the product to work. Collecting all this data helps us get an idea of what your goals are with the project. The initial costs and timeline are also estimated in this stage.

Requirements analysis and planning

We start analyzing the requirements to develop a strong base for the software application. That is why requirement analysis and planning is one of the most crucial stages of the entire development process. In this stage, your goals are converted into a plan. Before moving on to the development stage, the demands need to be documented then verified. The requirements are recorded in an SRS or Software Requirement Specification document based on which the product is developed and designed. Requirement planning also makes sure that there are no misunderstandings down the line.

Visual and Technical design

Every software solution demands a specific approach; And so, designing the system architecture is important for every project. The internal design of every module of the software is detailed in the SRS document. Design modularity and risk assessment are the parameters that are taken into consideration in this stage. The external design is also created in this stage. Deliverables of this stage are technical architecture, wireframes, high fidelity screens, database design, user stories, and database schema.

Development

This phase is the longest one. Based on the Software Requirement Specification document and visual and technical design, our team starts programming the software. Coding could be accomplished seamlessly if the stages prior to this were completed meticulously. Based on the type of software development model, each development team performs the development activity from a different angle. Most projects implement the Agile methodology, which includes Scrum meetings or iterative meetings called every day, in which each team member reports issues and progress on their tasks.

Testing

Testing is done after the product is developed and before it is ready to be released to find and fix defects and deficiencies. During testing, our testers perform various types of functional and non-functional testing. The critical features that are tested in the testing stage are core application functions, compatibility on different devices, installation on localized machines, and text input. It is fixed and tested again in case a bug is detected. Until the software meets quality requirements, the testing process is continued.

Deployment and Maintenance

They might come up with some unexpected problems when your users start using the software. They can be improved later or fixed right away based on the priority of issues. One of the benefits of custom software applications is maintenance as the software development company takes care of your project even after its release.

Maintain a Competitive Edge

Can empower companies to achieve a benchmark in competition. Our cost-effective business solutions for companies are designed using our domain expertise and unique methodologies that will encourage focusing on core business competencies rather than implementing existing business procedures.

Many competitive businesses in the past few years have come to learn that preconfigured solutions might not be enough to meet their customers' increasingly specific needs. This has led to a significant rise in demand for custom software solutions. Purpose-built software will continue to play an important role in helping an organization grow and become more efficient.

How can your software become your competitive advantage?
  • Custom software will let you provide services your competitors can't and help you be more efficient. That is unless you're another accounting firm that uses exactly the same set of tools that every other firm also uses for that same purpose. If you're a company trying to differentiate yourself from the market, custom software can help you excel. There are more than enough ways to distinguish yourself with custom software. Ask our customers. Take a moment to consider your inventory management system. A custom Inventory Management System can support unlimited length descriptions, images and integrate with your online catalog or even multiple catalogs in which you offer your unique service or product. You will find Off-the-shelf (OTS) software limiting when it comes to any specifics.
  • Rules and legislation can change fast. Say you're in an industry that leaves an environmental impact, and new regulations pop up asking you to maybe differentiate a group of stuff you always counted as a single item. Meaning you will have to ensure it's inventoried separately, then reported to various government offices. Off-the-shelf software won't support such changes. The off-the-shelf system provider will offer an update to take care of the change eventually. But it's likely you will have to negotiate with them for a costly and special private update. This will be even more true if it is a one-state issue that won't have wide applications and probably won't generate sizable revenue for them. With custom software, your provider understands your software solution well, and they are familiar with your business model. Rather than having to adapt to an arbitrary update from an off-the-shelf provider, an update for your custom software can be started immediately by the custom software development team, on your timetable, and tailored to your business processes. Don't work at the whim or mercy of an off-the-shelf solution firm. Custom-built software can return control to you when you want it.
  • Most successful companies strive to make their business processes more efficient. However, it can get hard to figure out the best fit for your business as many options are available in the market. A tailored solution, on the other hand, is like a complete package that can prove to be a game-changer. Custom software can be built in such a way as to easily integrate with your present software. This will optimize how your business functions, improve performance, and increase production.
  • Along with the market in which you do business, your business will have to transform with time. Custom software can be adapted easily to support any changes in the business. This way, you will maintain a competitive edge compared to your competitors.
  • By eliminating the need for training employees and licenses to fit a process that is different from yours, custom software will reduce costs.

Just about all software solutions began to cater to a single solution for a particular customer. Done well, your custom solution can give you a strong edge over your competitors. Stand up and be distinct. It's why you're in the business in the first place
