The Top 3 Reasons Why Your Business Needs Custom Software Application
Why pay for a custom software application for your business when there is probably something already created that will do a good job? First and foremost something you buy off the shelf won’t fit your specific business model and it’ll force your company to work their way and not yours. Secondly you can custom design the program to do anything you want it to, look how you want it to, operate for your employees in a specific fashion geared to make their jobs more efficient and generate any reports that you need. And finally when your company changes, the application can change with it.
You make the custom software application fit your business, not the other way around. You have a specific way of doing business and if you purchase a readymade program, it may do some of the things you need but not others. It will force you to work their way in their business model. With a custom program, you can tailor it to fit your business and do everything you need it to do in the way you want it to. There’s no need to change your business processes to fit a prebuilt program or not get the information you need out of your software and get all the information that you’re looking for so you can make informed decisions about your company. Why take extra steps in your day to day operations when, with a scratch built program, you can do business your way? As they say, work smarter, not harder!
You get what you want from the application. When you have a program built for you, you are in in the planning stages, telling the developers how you want it to look and what you want it to do. If you don’t like the flow of the program, you can have the developers redesign it so it works perfectly for you. Do you need custom reports from the software application? The developer can easily create any custom reports from the data gathered from sales reports to customer reports to inventory reports. The sky’s the limit! There’s virtually nothing that can’t be done.
The application grows with your company. Your company is a living organism that grows and adapts to new opportunities and markets and your software needs to be able to change right along with it. With an off the shelf solution, you’re pretty much stuck with what they offer, or you need to request changes from the developer and chances are, it’s not going to happen anytime soon. But with your very own program, your developer can modify it all you want to whenever you need it to do so you will be able to adapt. For example, do you need to start collecting new data on your company and then create new reports based on that data? That can be accomplished easily by your development team working with you to properly define what you’re looking to do.
