Custom Software Development
Software: the programs used to direct the operation of a computer, as well as documentation giving instructions onhow to use them.
Custom: made specially for individual customers
Taking into consideration the above meanings (source: dictionary.com), we can safely say that custom software is a computer program developed to specific customer requirements.
With a myriad of applications around the world, it is not that easy to find something that will suit your business to perfection. There is always going to be something missing, something just-that-little-bit different. Or something simply just plain wrong.
Often with out-of-the-box solutions, you will find yourself having to deal with call centres and sales staff, that fundamentally don't care about your business and making it work for you. After-sale assistance is close to inexistant when you are just a number like everyone else.
That is where getting a piece of software developed specifically for your business can make all the difference to your bottom line. You know how to run your business, You know exactly what has always made you successful, You know exactly what you want and where you want your business to go. All You need to do is get it done.
Your personal developer will spend time with You, get to know You, understand what makes You tick. Once they have a grasp of what you're about, they can then tackle the challenge of making a program that is tailored to You. No point in saying red because we think it is red if you want green and know why it should be green.
These are the steps to a successful custom software:
- Personally meet up with the client and get to know them
- Find out what they are currently doing in their business and plan to do it better
- come up with a project together
- develop the project
- deploy the project in a testing facility with constant feedback from the client
- finalise the project with documentation and training
