Is there a software solution for this? That’s usually the first thing businesses ask themselves when faced with a challenge. And with good reason, there is often a solution or an addon to an existing solution that can solve the challenge being faced.
Business applications have come a long way. We are now seeing full suites of software being deployed, allowing businesses to pick and choose a semi-tailored solution that fits their workplace. The other popular and cost-effective way to solve workplaces challenges is with custom software solutions.
The Right Tool for the Right People
First thing to consider is who it is for, this is the most important factor when considering software solutions. Solving today’s workplace challenges with business applications can help teams become more agile, increasing productivity when the right solution for the right person is implemented.
Conversing with the end user is the way to start, discover their pain points and make a list. This list can then be used to assess business applications and see if there is an acceptable solution to the challenge at hand.
As mentioned, there are many complete suites of software available:
They boast an array of features, addons, packages and flexible payment plans. And allow for parts of the suite’s solutions to be added or removed as needed, this gives some flexibility to general business needs.
These all have similar functionality with slight differences. Whilst they are very good solutions in general that’s what they are, general solutions designed to cater to common uses across all industries. However, they often lack the specific functionality required by today’s businesses.
Go for Custom Software?
Today’s businesses already have software solutions in place and have undergone digital transformations to cover their general operations. As a result, adding another general use pre-built solution might not completely cover the current challenge you are facing.
Custom solutions are no longer expensive and viable only for large enterprises. Small and mid range businesses are finding development companies to fit their budget. You have to be flexible, and so should the software you use. Custom solutions are proving to be an attractive choice. They can be designed to specifically fit the requirements of a user and to fit seamlessly into existing workflows.
Business Applications Are an Investment
Implementing the right solution not only tackles the challenge being faced, but will be there for any future ones too. You most likely already have a sophisticated solution in place. Bespoke solutions developed are an investment worth making.
Reduce costs, improve efficiency and provide employees with a powerful solution they can rely on. While a pre-built solution has the benefit of no upkeep on your part, a custom solution allows you to differentiate yourself in the market. This means you can provide your clients and customers with an enhanced service.
