Signs You Need Custom Software
At Axis Software Dynamics, we are a custom software development company and we know that no matter what kind of business you have, if it has an online presence that your customers use to access your information or if you use computers to handle sales, shipping, human resources and other functions, then you need great software that will work specifically for your company and your needs.
Often, business owners like you, especially small business owners, use off-the-shelf software and don’t realize that it’s not doing everything they’d like it to do for their business. One-size-fits-all software is made for a wide variety of businesses so it can’t be optimal for any one type of business. These business owners likely don’t even know that there is such a thing as custom software that can be produced by a custom software development company and that they don’t have to make their business fit their software.
As a business owner, you should consider these signs that it may be time to call us at Axis Software Dynamics for custom software help:
Your Current Software Has Limitations
If the software you’re using doesn’t meet your specifications and you’re trying to work around it or your software has limitations that don’t allow it to cope with an increasing workload or new function, then it’s time for custom software.
Your Business Processes Change
If your business has evolved and you’ve figured out a way to streamline your functions for more efficiency, your generic software may not be able to keep up with these changes. Custom software will not only be able to work with your business as it is now but will also be able to adapt as your business changes.
Your Systems Aren’t Integrated
If you find that you’re entering the same data twice into two different programs, it means that your store-bought software programs aren’t working together to exchange information. And if you have to access multiple programs to put together one report or gather one set of data, then you need custom software.
You’re Tired Of Paying License Fees For Software
When you use off-the-shelf software, you often have to pay monthly or annual license fees to use it. This is doubly annoying when the software doesn’t meet all of your needs anyway. When you have custom software developed for you, you own the rights to it and you can even sell the program to other businesses.
You Want An Edge On Your Competition
Custom software that makes your business more efficient or makes your customers’ experience online easier and more exciting will give you the edge over your business competition.
You Can’t Figure Out How To Use Your Current Software
Even if your generic software is working for you, it may be too complicated to use, which means you’re not getting all the benefits out of it that you should be. Custom software is designed for you and with your input in the process. In addition, when you work with a great software development company like Axis Software Dynamics we’ll be able to explain all of the functions of your software so that you won’t have to read a 200-page manual to figure it out.
