Your company is doing well in the market and started to hit the growth phase, and you’ve also nailed down a possibly accessible business model and have a strong client base too. In short, you are heading towards big success, but stuck in one decision: Should I choose off the shelf software or go with custom software development services? The pre-configured solution may seem quicker and easier for you, but everyone knows that a pre-configured solution is not enough to fulfill every business need. All they need is a customized solution. Before making any decision, have a look at these five reasons, that why you should choose custom software development services can be more effective:
1- One Size Doesn’t Fit All
The market is full of software vendors, and there are many pre-configured solutions available in the market. But there are high chances that such software will be able to full-fill every need of an organization. Each organization has specialized business needs that must be addressed. With custom software development services these needs will go unmet. Modifying built-in features will rarely benefit you, as the modification will be available up to a limit, but custom software solutions will strengthen your changing needs without any limits.
2- Set A Vision of Your Own, Instead of Fitting In Someone Else
You know well that one size does not fit in all issues, a custom software development services allow you to realize your vision, instead of fitting in someone else. Using tools that are not designed as per your business needs can be dangerous for business productivity and overall efficiency. With a custom solution, you can begin thinking about the new possibilities. The customized solution will ensure that you get new ways of thinking and get the scope to broaden your horizon.
3- Adaptability and Integration
To compete with other available software’s, a pre-configured solution does not easily integrate with other systems and setup. As a solution to such issues, a custom software development solution gives you the option to accommodate these facets of your business. A custom solution can be tailored as per your specific business needs and can be integrated easily into the existing software or if there is any new addition. Moreover, a specific skill set can be developed as per business direction and product variation.
4- Be The Owner of Your Software, Instead of Being A Buyer
When you buy software from any other company or purchase a license from them do complete your task, unintentionally you are investing in your company. But by having a custom software development service solution, you’ll be investing in your own. It will be like an asset for your business, that can be sold, or licensed, and can be used as software-as-a-service (SaaS). This will open up new ways of potential income, and you will have access to fully branded tools that can add more sense to work processing and employee productivity.
5- Competitive Advantage
A pre-configured solution is not helpful for you, as it is the same solution that your competitors are using. This will not make any difference, and you will be having the exact tools, and you will lose the chance of being effectively different from them and make progress into the market. With custom software development services on board, you will get a competitive advantage. Not only you will have your proprietary platform to meet your specific business requirements, but it will outperform the competitors by addressing the unique challenges that competitors are facing. By investing in a customized solution, you will have a unique solution onboard, that none of your competitors will have access to.
