The Spud Software Difference

When vetting a software company it's important to understand why more companies choose Spud to provide their software solutions.

You Own the Code
It is important to make sure that the custom software solution you are paying for is owned by you. If you ever want to change companies, bring the work in house or sell the software, you want to make sure you own it.
You Own the Data
It is hard to believe, but we still know companies that got involved with the wrong suppliers only to find out they don't own the data. Some companies will say you own the data, but not provide a method to export it without a huge cost. We make sure that your data is your data and if you ever need it, you can get it.
You Own the Intellectual Property
We have a Master Service Agreement (MSA) that spells this out with all the fun legal speak, but we like to make it simple. If it is proprietary to your business, we keep it confidential. To keep you covered, we request all confidential and proprietary documentation is marked accordingly and all our staff has signed confidentiality agreements. And here's another reason for using a local company like Spud: How can you hold someone accountable if they aren't in the United States?
Realistic Ongoing Costs
Depending on the project, there may be ongoing costs. They could be as small as hosting or could involve call center support. Some of our clients are constantly changing their processes and purchase billable hours in advance for additional savings. We will be open and honest about what the ongoing costs are prior to starting any project.
Impressive Resume
Spud has done work for companies of all sizes, from Fortune 500 companies to start-ups with investors. With 20 years of experience and a wide range of clients, Spud can bring a ton of experience and understanding of what works.
100% American Owned and Operated
Our in-house developers do all the work. We never sub-contract to offshore companies. We've seen the work they do and their data formats, the flow of the programs and overall functionality isn't always consistent with how Americans do things. There may be some great offshore development firms out there, we just haven't heard of any.

Project Management

Local Custom Programmer Flint MI - Spud Software - pm1Because Spud takes such pride in the projects we take on, we feel it is important to make sure it's clear WHO is responsible for the delivery of the project. Because there may be multiple players involved in a project, it is important to define who is responsible for the deliverables right out of the gate. If everyone is in charge, no one is in charge, and to properly complete a project on time and within budget, someone needs to run the show.

Spud prefers to take on that responsibility. In short, we play well with others. We have the experience to get things done and motivate the rest of the team to stay on task and meet their milestones. We excel at bringing people together and realize that if anyone fails along the way, we all fail. At the same time, when a project succeeds, we have ALL succeeded.
