First off, just to clarify, custom software isn't only for large corporations. Small to medium sized businesses can receive great benefits from custom software, and, in fact, can help them keep up with the bigger corporations. Here’s 3 signs that you should consider custom software for your business.
More Problems Than Solutions
Often times, businesses take the risk of purchasing some off-the-shelf piece of software, but once they get it up and running, it causes more headaches than solutions. Whether it’s hard to use, or you’ve abandoned it altogether, it’s a sure sign that it’s time for a custom solution. Your software is meant to help your business, not make things more complicated. You might feel stuck with your current software, and remaining in that situation is not beneficial to your company. Investing in custom software will help you move forward and make improvements with your business objectives.
Do you feel like you have a position that should be labeled ‘Excel Spreadsheet Professional’? If you have an employee, or employees, spending countless hours re-entering data and information, we are here to tell you there’s a better way. We’ve worked with many businesses to help streamline their data input with a custom app. So those days of spending countless hours re-entering data is over! If this sounds like your company, custom software is a perfect solution.
Not Scaling For Your Needs
One major downfall with off-the-shelf software is that it has to be designed in a way to fit the needs of many businesses. Therefore it isn't perfect for any business. Often businesses find themselves stuck with software that they can't do certain functions they need to run their business because it isn't available with their solution. With a custom solution, this isn't the case. We can build a solution specific for your needs and continue to grow it over time as your needs grow. It will be built specifically for you.
Your business is growing, you’re taking on new projects and hiring new staff members. There’s rarely a canned solution that will address all of your company’s needs. You will need software that is geared to fit your niche and hit on every focal point of your company. If this is you, it’s time to consider a custom solution.
