Bespoke software development is becoming ever more popular, and there are a number of reasons that companies are choosing custom options rather than what is commercially available. In this article, we discuss all the reasons for choosing bespoke software development.
Building software that caters specifically to the function of your choice is the primary reason for looking into bespoke software development. Commercial options are designed to fulfil as many needs as possible, in order to cater to the widest possible market. The result is overcomplicated systems that you must fit your business functions into. Creating custom software allows a company to provide the functions they need to be fulfilled and for the program to operate with those purposes alone. Bespoke software is equivalent to doing the 100m sprint in shoes, moulded to the shape of your feet and complementary to your style of movement.
From the customer side, bespoke software is superior for its ease of use. This all depends on the design, but usually designing a product with a single process allows a level of simplicity that translates to the user. The ability to simplify software should never be overlooked. The biggest tech brands in the world have gotten where they are by removing unnecessary processes for seamless delivery. Uber, Amazon, and Netflix all place ease of use as an integral aspect of their philosophy and try to eliminate as many steps as possible between the customer and their receiving of the product/service.
The process of creating something new means that it can develop with change. Bespoke software can be manipulated and changed to fit your business as it too changes and develops. Often, off-the-shelf products require a choice depending on the size of your business. This means that when growth is required, you will have to upgrade or change providers completely. This lack of requiring subscriptions and changing software can actually be more cost-effective in the long run, especially coupled with an increase in productivity due to speed and simplicity.
One of the side benefits of creating a product of your own is that in most cases you own the intellectual property of the software. By solving your own needs you may create something of value to other companies. This makes it possible to use your development to further generate income by selling it to others.
Finally, the creative possibilities are endless in how you choose to represent your company and the processes you feel could benefit it. The best products are those that fulfil a specific need or solve a particular problem with efficiency and simplicity. Bespoke software allows you to have a team of experts consult with you and design a solution that fits perfectly into your already constructed framework.
