What Is Custom Software?
Running a business at any time is hard; but in the computerized age, it’s a lot harder. Business software that’s supposed to make every task go smoothly and efficiently doesn’t always work the way it’s supposed to. Sometimes two or three different pre-packaged software programs that you’re using for different tasks forget that they’re supposed to ‘play nice’ with each other and your whole system comes crashing down. That’s where Axis Software Dynamics, a custom software development company comes in.
At Axis Software Dynamics, we can help to solve your not-quite-right software problems with custom software for your business. But what exactly is custom software?
– It’s software designed specifically for your company or for a department within your company.
– It’s software that can incorporate features from other software that you like.
– It’s software that will integrate with other programs you’re using.
– It’s software that’s flexible and that can be upgraded.
– It’s software that’s built with industry-standard tools.
– It’s software that you own.
The opposite of custom software is pre-packaged, canned or off-the-shelf software that’s meant to work, generally, for a variety of business types. As a custom software development company, we at Axis Software Dynamics know that some small businesses with limited budgets, that require limited functionality, find off-the-shelf software perfectly adequate. If you’re not one of those, you’ll know it by the number of times you’ve gotten frustrated with your system or your software and by the number of times you’ve wanted to throw your computer out of a window.
Is custom software more expensive than off-the-shelf software? Yes, but it’s an investment that will pay off in the long run when your business’s downtime due to computer or software compatibility problems is decreased to almost none. And it will pay off because you won’t have to keep buying expensive upgrades to pre-packed programs that still don’t work right for you. Software made specifically for your business can revolutionize the way you operate and improve your bottom line by eliminating repetitive tasks, sharing information, generating statistical data and much more.
