Bespoke Software v Off The Shelf

A custom application can be a better solution than standard software application. Standard products are designed for a wide range of businesses and can never exactly work to your specific business.

Costs can be deceptive as off the shelf software may not include setup, data import, customisation of reports, support nor your own learning time.

Off-the-shelf software caters for a wide range of organisations and may include many functions you will never use. Generic screens, not specific to your business, may be much slower, harder to user than a bespoke software screen built.

Custom software can actually cost less, especially for large number of users. With PSS you pay a one off fee regardless of the number of users.

Problems with Offshore Development

Software developed offshore in countries such as India, may appear attractive based on on cost.

But there are potential downsides:

- Problems working across different time zones, different cultures, and languages.

- Lack of face to face meetings, make it harder to develop deep understanding.

- The development process can take much longer and you may not end up with what you want.

Developing customised software locally, saves you time, are cost effective and can grow with your business grows.

Bespoke Software Development Process

Consultation

It takes time to precisely understand and quantify your needs, very often clients have vague and sometimes conflicting requiremts, thse have to be resolved before progressing.

Specification & Quotation

Detailed fixed price costed quotation with timetable.

Software can be developed or as an on-going collaboration with continual development.

3 - Development

It is important that you see the software as it is being built, rather than only when it is finishedDeveloped in stages. You approve and comment at every phase.

5 - Testing and Handover

I do not stop until your application is completely reliable.

6 - Support

I continue to support and maintain software after the initial project is completed.

7 - On-Going Development and Enhancements

Outgrown Excel?

Often business or departmental data is held excel spreadsheets. This is often fine to get things started, when the data is simple, or only a couple of people of need access.

Overtime, as more data is added, as the complexity of the data increases, or as data becomes fragmented in personal folders, using Excel starts to become a bottle neck.

Excel work sheets can only be updated one person at a time, or collecting sales figures means opening multiple documents.

Converting from Excel to a bespoke database application can:

Customised software application will work with you save time (eg copy and pasting) by automating repetitive tasks
Ease of use of a custom software solution make data easier to locate by adding sophisticated query functions
Ease of use of a custom software solution allow data to be easily shared and updated
Ease of use of a custom software solution improve reliability and consistency by adding validation rules
