Building bespoke, dedicated software, requires good communication between you and the software house. In this way, an important role is played by the consultant and the person purchasing the software. If the communication is disrupted in any way, completing the project may not be that easy.
What is the first step in building custom software?
Before the software house can start building your application, it is necessary to go through a precise identification of your needs. What tasks do you want the system to streamline? How many people will be using the application? Will those be only your employees or maybe partners and clients as well? The answers to the basic questions will allow preparing the request for quotation.
Dedicated software development is a unique process that determines the time required to complete it or the price of the solution. During the first meeting with your consultant, it will not be easy to provide the exact numbers. On the other hand, choosing this type of software, you can be certain, all the modules are built to meet the individual needs of your company.
What will you gain choosing bespoke software?
Apart from being perfectly tailored to your needs, a dedicated application will also mirror the unique processes taking place in your company. No off-the-shelf solution will give you this feature. This can include, e.g. estimation of the potential of certain customer relations or managing sales processes. This will, consequently, make the implementation of the solution faster and more likely to be successful. Moreover, bespoke software allows for potential further development of the application. In this regard, it is important to invest in customer-owned software, to avoid any issues. When signing the agreement, it is worth to look at whether you will own the software or if you are only buying a license to use it. Only the first option will allow you to introduce changes in the source code to develop the software further according to your growing needs. That is why at Kamee we guarantee the transfer of ownership right to the application along with the documentation and the source code. In this way, you have the exclusive right to the developed software.
Is it worth to invest in bespoke software?
Depending on the way the software house charges their clients, the payment may be made as a lump sum or divided into partial payments. It will not be a subscription, though, like in case of off-the-shelf solutions. That means that in the long run, the custom application is cheaper, at the same time being a perfect answer to the needs of your company. The implementation of the solution will also be faster, which means saving a lot of time.
Who will benefit from bespoke software?
It is a type of solution that the companies of all sizes will benefit from. As it is tailored to the needs of a company, such a solution will optimize daily processes, regardless of the size of the firm. This will mean saving a lot of time and money.
