What Makes Custom Software Safer Than Other Choices?

You may have noticed that we’re passionate about custom software safety. As a matter of fact, we’ve already mentioned safety in several previous blog posts. For those who are here for the first time, we’ve explained that bespoke software provides more safety because it’s not mass-produced. When you buy off-the-shelf software, your software works exactly the same as a lot of other people’s software. If a hacker figures out how to get into someone else’s software, that hacker will have no problem getting into yours. With customization, on the other hand, you have something rare and more difficult to hack. 

That said, there are plenty of other reasons why customized software provides more safety than ordinary software. Let’s take a closer look at some of those reasons. 

Custom Software Provides Crash Protection

First of all, customization protects your software from crashes. How? Well, custom software is designed with your specific hardware system in mind. Your hardware and software will work seamlessly with one another, creating smooth day to day usage. Furthermore, the right software team will test your new software for bugs and vulnerabilities at every step of the development process. On the other hand, off-the-shelf software developers don’t always have time for this attention to detail. Their goal is to get as many products to consumers, as quickly as possible. Safety is secondary to that goal. 

Built for Your Security 

Custom software isn’t just safe. It’s built from the ground up with your specific safety needs in mind. You’ll get added layers of protection that you just won’t get from standard software. Before your team starts building your software, they’ll meet with you to discuss the ins and outs of your business. You can bring up any security concerns that you have, and they’ll ask you some security-related questions. Once your team knows all about your security needs, they’ll build your perfect software from scratch. 

Safe for Large Businesses 

Do you run a large business? In that case, you know that the bigger the business, the bigger the software. The more departments you have, the more complicated your software needs can get. Unfortunately, having a far-reaching software means having more room for vulnerabilities. Custom software can take those vulnerabilities off the table. Your software team will make sure every part of your software stays safe. 

Safe for Small Businesses 

On the other side of that coin, small businesses have their own safety concerns. Some hackers go after smaller businesses because those businesses tend to use off-the-shelf software. Small businesses also tend to have fewer resources for patching software vulnerabilities. With custom software, you can avoid those vulnerabilities and keep your business safe. Your software team should treat your business with just as much care and attention as they’d use to treat a large business. They’ll create security measures so that you can run your business without fear. 

Scalability Gives You Protection 

On the whole, custom software gives you more scalability than standardized software. Your software development team can help you anticipate your growth needs so that you get everything you need from your software as time goes on. Standard software doesn’t always have this kind of room to grow, so you’ll have to replace and upgrade your software more often. When you replace or adjust your off-the-shelf software, you can leave opportunities for hackers to take advantage of your business. 

However, if your software has built-in scalability, you won’t have to make so many adjustments as you go. You won’t introduce new vulnerabilities into your system, and you’ll keep your software’s protection from hackers. 

Maintenance and Support 

With any business software, you’ll need regular maintenance and support. If you choose custom software, then you can rely on your software developers to deliver the support that you need in a timely way. They’ll take care of your security needs on a consistent basis. Standard software developers don’t usually provide the same security support. These developers deal with lots of other customers, so they may put you and your needs on the back burner. 

Customized software developers know your system inside and out. Because they work with you directly, they care about your software system and want to help you keep it safe. If you run into any security issues, they’ll be there to help whenever you need them.

Software product development is complex work. It takes skill, dedication, and attention to detail. That’s why you shouldn’t trust just anybody with your software products. You need an elite, experienced team that can get the job done well and get it done fast. That’s where Ayoka Systems comes in. The Ayoka team specializes in custom software product creation, and we stand apart from other development teams. Here’s what sets Ayoka apart from your other options. 

Local Software Product Development 

First of all, Ayoka is local. Your Ayoka team has offices in Texas and Colorado, so we’re ready to work within your time zone. What exactly does that mean for you? When you want custom software product development, you need a team that you can reach quickly and easily. However, a lot of custom software teams work overseas. As a result, their US-based customers face delayed communication. Time zones and language barriers can create complications. Ayoka, on the other hand, is right here where you need us. Whether you need to schedule a meeting or you just have a few questions, your team is here for you, and we can keep you updated in real time. 

Industry Experience 

Before you create your product, make sure that your software product development team has the right type of experience. For example, say that you’re creating healthcare software. The healthcare industry has a lot of needs that other industries don’t have. The same goes for the financial industry, education, and government. To make sure that you get the best software product, choose a development team that has worked with your target industry. Thankfully, Ayoka has plenty of experience working in all kinds of industries. Take a look at our case studies to see how we’ve helped specific industries and businesses. 

Upfront Preparation 

For software product development, upfront communication is the key to success. Your Ayoka team understands this need. We put a lot of time and effort into the planning stages because we know that all of the initial communication pays off. In addition, we give our clients a realistic time-frame. We come up with early strategies for delays. Furthermore, we offer open communication at every step in the development process. This way, you’ll always know what’s going on with your product. If you ever have any questions, our team is ready to help. 

Communication and Certainty 

While we’re on the subject of communication, let’s talk about how Ayoka removes ambiguity. With Ayoka, there’s no room for vagueness. Our communication stays clear and focused when we provide your custom software development services. We communicate with you about everything, including how the software will be customized, what the user requirements will be, and who will have ownership and licensing of your software. 

Excellent ROI 

When you use Ayoka for your software product development, you get excellent ROI. Why? Because helping our clients get the best ROI is one of Ayoka’s primary goals. We discuss ROI during our planning stages. Our goal is to reduce your cost margins per sale or download of your product. This way, you get to maximize your profits. 

Testing and More Testing 

At Ayoka, we prioritize testing. As a matter of fact, we believe that you can’t have too much testing for your software products. We test our products several times, making sure that they’re free of bugs, safe from hackers, and protected from other complications. There’s nothing more frustrating that discovering a software problem long after you’ve deployed that software. Your Ayoka team will do its best to prevent those problems from happening in the first place. 

On Time and On Budget 

Now, we mentioned that we plan for delays and complications during our software product development process. We understand that delays can happen to anybody. That said, we also prioritize getting your product ready on time and on budget. Our careful planning minimizes potential delays so that you can get your product as quickly as possible. Of course, we never sacrifice quality in the name of timeliness. We provide the perfect balance of both. 

There For You After Delivery

Your Ayoka team is here for you long after delivery. If you ever have questions or need support, we’re here to help. Get in touch with us at any time. We’re always ready to help our clients.

Why Agriculture Software Matters Now More Than Ever

Agriculture is the backbone of the US economy. Most of today’s products wouldn’t exist without agriculture. That’s why it’s important for the agriculture industry to have excellent custom agriculture software, especially in this day and age. Why custom software, though? Won’t any software work as long as it gets the job done? Not exactly. Custom software can help you manage your farm more wisely and efficiently. As a matter of fact, it turns out that custom farming software is more important now than it ever was before. Here’s why more and more farmers are turning to custom software for their management needs. 

Data Gets More Important Every Year 

Each year, farming data becomes more important. The farming industry has created all kinds of new technology. For example, the internet of things has transformed the industry in a short period of time. New clients have emerged thanks to new products and inventions, and scientists have done new studies on the benefits of agriculture. With so many changes in this industry, farmers need accurate and reliable databases to keep track of all of their information. In this case, a custom database will get the job done. Custom databases provide the flexibility that farmers need as things change. Farmers can get the data that they need in real time. Standardized databases, on the other hand, tend to stagnate. When you settle for standardization, your software is only as good as the current technology. 

Monitoring and Reporting 

Speaking of databases, custom agriculture software promotes better monitoring and reporting. With the right software, farmers can have sensors for soil and crop production. They can also monitor the weather in real time and learn how different conditions affect their crops. What about labor? Farm managers can monitor that, too. With a custom database, farmers get accurate information and accurate reporting whenever they need it. Farmers can meet with their software teams. Then, their teams can create specific software for their crops and location. Farming is a personalized business. Your software should reflect your personalized needs. 

Protection 

We’ve discussed software protection a lot lately. Basically, custom software provides more safety from hackers than standard software. Standard software is easier for hackers to learn. Once they break into one type of software, it’s easy for them to break into similar systems. On the other hand, when your software is one of a kind, hackers don’t have a template for breaking in. Furthermore, your custom agriculture software team can build specific security measures so that you don’t have to worry. 

This protection matters especially for agriculture. As we said above, farmers provide an important service to the US economy. First of all, if agriculture fell apart, America would feel the consequences right away. If farmers don’t get the right protection, all of the US could suffer. Second, agriculture covers a lot of land. When your job and your software are so far-reaching, you need to make sure that you protect every part of it. Custom agriculture software will help. 

Better Livestock Management 

Livestock management is tricky. Farmers must keep up with herd health, product production, breeding, location, and so much more. With all of these factors, why should you manage your herd in the way that someone else says you have to? With custom agriculture software, you can manage your herds in any way that you’d like. Use whatever system works best for you. You can talk to your software developers about your management needs. Tailor your system based on the size of your herd and the type of animals you breed. Use as many or as few custom features as you want to use. 

Better Sales Management 

With custom agriculture software, you can tailor your sales management. Sales software has changed over the years. The way that people shop has evolved. 

For that matter, even the products that you can sell as a farmer have changed. For example, some farmers who sold medicinal cannabis have branched out into recreational sales. Furthermore, the recent legalization of CBD products has also shaped the farming world. The hemp plant and similar plants are now in high demand. Farmers who sell these products need a way to keep up with their booming product sales. You can keep up with all of the latest trends and changes by using custom agriculture software. Custom software will give you the scalability that you need as the market evolves. 

Custom Agriculture Software 

Are you ready to see the difference of custom agriculture software? Ayoka Systems can create the perfect software for your needs. At Ayoka, we know that your work is complicated. You deal with many factors every day. We’ll take the time to get to know your business so that you get the best software. Want to start with your free consultation? Contact the Ayoka team today.

Should You Replace Your Third Party Software With Customization?

Your third party software has worked well in the past. Now, though, you’re thinking about custom software development. It’s a big decision. Business owners put a lot of thought into whether or not they need customization. How do you make sure that you’re making the right decisions? Look for the signs that we’ve listed below. If you’ve noticed any of these signs in your business, then custom software can help you take your company to the next level.

You’re Ready to Replace Your Old Software With Custom Software Development

Some business owners look for custom software options when they realize that they’ve outgrown their old software. Your current software may not provide for your current needs. Why choose custom software development instead of choosing another off-the-shelf option? Because your business is growing. If you buy pre-packaged software, you’ll eventually outgrow that one, too. However, if you choose customization, you can have the scalability that you need.

Your Industry Has New Resources or Technology

Sometimes you need new software because your company has grown. Sometimes you need new software because your entire industry has grown. Some industries add new technology and resources at a rapid pace, and you want to make sure that you can keep up. After all, what customer wants to use an outdated service when there are more current ones available? Custom software lets you make the most of the latest technologies, and with the scalability possibilities, you can stay up to date consistently.

You’re Not Getting What You Need From Your Data

Is it time for a new database? Has your database slowed down recently? Is your company avoiding data entry because your current system is too complicated or frustrating? Custom software can help. The great thing about custom software development is that it always starts with the client’s needs. You can sit down with your engineer team and explain exactly what you need from your database software. Your team can then build your software according to those needs. This way, you can finally stop dealing with database frustration.

Your Information Is Scattered

Is your software leaving your company disorganized? Do you always have to track down the right spreadsheet? Have you had to cobble together a bunch of solutions into your current system? Then you need synchronization, and custom software development can provide just that. Your software team can synthesize your information, which will help you save time.

You’re Losing Client Satisfaction

Client satisfaction is everything. If your business starts losing its reputation, your bottom line suffers. What causes client dissatisfaction? Often, it stems from slow speeds and poor processes, both of which can be boiled down to software problems. Another off-the-shelf software product may temporarily relieve this problem, but after several years, you’ll probably face the same issues again. Custom software development can help you renew your relationship with your customers and keep those customers happy.

You Need a Marketing and Sales Expansion

Have your marketing and sales needs grown over the past few years? If so, your current software may not be able to keep up with those needs. Custom software can help your marketing efforts soar. Your software team can build a software that will meet your unique and specific needs. Custom software development will help you reach new clients and foster a great relationship with your current ones.

You’re Acquiring or Merging With Another Business

Mergers and acquisitions provide you with a great opportunity for custom software development. When you acquire or merge with another business, you’re essentially creating something brand new. Your software and the other company’s software aren’t going to be enough. Since you’re already customizing your company, you should customize your software, too.

You Need Better Security

We’ve mentioned a few times that custom software development gives you better security than off-the-shelf software. First of all, your software development team can build your software around your particular security needs. Second, customization protects your software from hackers. If your software is unlike any other software, then it’ll be tough for a hacker to figure it out.

Custom Software Development With Ayoka

Of course, it’s not enough to get custom software. You want your custom software development to come from the right team. That’s why Ayoka is here. The Ayoka team crafts custom software for companies of all sizes. Want to find out how Ayoka can help you? Contact us today.

Thinking about custom software development services? Ayoka can help you with that. Ayoka has a team of expert software developers who have all kinds of industry experience. At Ayoka, we create custom databases, applications, and plenty of other software solutions for our clients. Still, if you’re thinking about custom software, you probably have a lot of questions. It’s understandable. Switching to custom software is a big step for any business. You’re certainly not the only one with questions. As a matter of fact, we get lots of questions about custom software development. We’ve listed the most common questions and their answers below.

 

What Do Custom Software Development Services Do?

You’re looking into custom software development services. Let’s say that you find the one you want. Now what happens? First, your software team will want to schedule a consultation with you. If you’ve chosen the right company, this consultation shouldn’t cost you anything. During this first meeting, you’ll get a good idea of what this service can provide. You’ll also fill them in on the basics of your project.

After that initial meeting, your engineers will take lots of time getting to know you and your company. They’ll learn how you use software in your business, what systems you’re currently using, and what you need the most from your software. During this phase, the software engineers may ask you a lot of questions. After all, nobody knows your company better than you do. Your team should want to gain as much information as they can.

Once your team members have all of the information that they need, they’ll chart a plan for your custom software development services. The plan will likely include several phases for building and perfecting your software. Once that’s done, they’ll go through each phase, one at a time, building your software. If you’ve picked the right software development team, they’ll keep you posted throughout each phase. Once they’ve finished your software, they’ll deploy it for your company.

 

Why Do I Need Custom Software?

Why choose custom software development services? Why not stick with commercial, off the shelf software? Custom software gives you lots of benefits. For one thing, custom software gives you far more security than mass-produced software. As we’ve pointed out in the past, hackers tend to go after off the shelf software because that kind of software is easier to figure out. If you have customized software, then your software has unique security features that prevent hacking.

Second, custom software development makes your business competitive. It sets you apart from similar businesses in your field. Third, there’s just nothing like having software that was built especially for you. Imagine having a software that was designed entirely with your business in mind. With that kind of software, you can run your company more smoothly and seamlessly.

The bottom line is that there are plenty of reasons why custom software development services can help your company thrive. If you want to learn more about how custom software can help your company in particular, feel free to get in touch with us at any time.

 

How Long Will My Custom Software Project Take?

Your project will likely take several months. Smaller projects can take around four months of planning and development. Larger projects can take closer to eight or nine months. That said, the best way to find out how long your project will take is to talk to your custom software development service. Each project is unique, so each one has a different time frame. In any case, if you’ve chosen the right development team, then they’ll take their time crafting the perfect software for your needs.

 

Why Not Use Off the Shelf Software?

Off the shelf software is fine for speed and convenience. Other than that, though, generic software can’t serve your business the way that custom software can. First of all, generic software isn’t designed specifically for your business. It’s designed for businesses like yours. However, this software ignores all of the things that set your company apart from the rest. As a result, a lot of your needs are going to slip through the cracks. For that matter, you’ll also get a lot of features that you don’t need while missing the features that you do need. Next, as we’ve mentioned above, off the shelf software is vulnerable to hackers and other security issues. We could go on about the pitfalls of generic software. The bottom line is that nothing can top the benefits of using custom software development services.

 

Who Has the Best Custom Software Development Services?

Who has the best custom software development services? That would be Ayoka Solutions. Your Ayoka team can develop your perfect software solutions. We’re also right here in the US, so you won’t have to worry about delays or poor communication. Want to start with your free consultation? Contact the Ayoka team today.

7 Important Facts About Custom Software Development

Are you thinking about custom software development? Custom software can make a huge difference in your business. If you’re still on the fence about your custom software, take a look at the seven facts below. Here are some important things you may not have considered about your customized software options.

 

Custom Software Is More Cost-Effective Than Prepackaged Software

First of all, custom software often provides the most cost-effective choice. Though there is an initial investment, your software could provide better savings in the long term. Why? For a few reasons. First, custom software development can last much longer than prepackaged options. It’s created with more care, which means that it’s built to last. Next, custom software provides you with exactly what you need, and only what you need, which means that you don’t have to pay for anything that you’re not going to use. Finally, your custom software can transform the way that you do business. For example, many businesses use customized software to upgrade their marketing tactics. This way, new software leads to new customers and better revenue.

 

Your Custom Software Could Make You More Competitive

Not every business in your field uses custom software. If you have custom software, your company will stand out from the rest. Whether it’s a custom app to help you connect to your clients or a custom database to help your business run more smoothly, you’ll have something that not every business has. This difference will help you stand out and may also help you attract more clients. For those in highly competitive fields, custom software can make all the difference.

 

Non-Customized Software May Fail You

Many business owners have considered custom software development because prepackaged software has so many limits. What will happen to your business if you realize too late that your software doesn’t have exactly what you need? Will you pay for expensive upgrades? Will you overhaul your entire system again? When prepackaged software fails a business, the business owner often realizes the fact only when it’s too late. You don’t have to be one of those business owners. You can get exactly what you need right away.

 

Customization Works for Businesses of All Sizes

When people think about custom software development, they sometimes think that it’s a “big business” thing. As a matter of fact, businesses of all sizes can and do use customization. Customization doesn’t just extend to the features in your software. Your customized software can be tailored to fit any sized business, too. Your small business can absolutely benefit from customized software. Talk to your software team about the possibilities and your budget. You’ll come up with the solution that works best for your business.

 

Customization Can Protect You from Hackers

When you have custom software, that software is much harder to hack than your standard, off-the-shelf software. That’s because off-the-shelf software is so common. Once a hacker learns how to hack a software system, they can hack virtually any system that uses the same software. They already know all the shortcuts. Customized software provides more protection. With custom software development, you can be sure that you’re the only one using your software. Hackers can’t breach a system that they don’t understand. Your software’s uniqueness protects it from harm. Furthermore, your software development team can build complete security into your software, protecting it from all angles.

 

Customization Gives You Scalability

Prepackaged software can’t give you the scalability that you need. The one-size-fits-all model doesn’t allow much movement in any direction. So what happens when you outgrow your software or need to cut back? You need scalability, and only customized software can give you what you need. For fluctuating businesses and those who anticipate growth, customization can make business life easier. Since your software is built with your needs in mind, you can get the exact amount of scalability that you need.

 

Custom Software Is Adaptable

We already mentioned that custom software is scalable, but it’s also adaptable in other ways. When you’re working with off-the-shelf software, then that software is limited to a few broad functions. It doesn’t give you a lot of room for flexibility. Custom software does. Because your custom software is built specifically for your business, it will provide all of the adaptability that you need. You’ll start your custom software development process by getting to know your development team. During that time, you’ll tell your team exactly what you need from your software. If one of those needs is flexibility, then you can be sure that your software will have just that.

Adding custom software to your business plan? Then you may not be sure where to start. If that sounds familiar, then don’t worry. You’re not the only one. Once you’ve gotten used to commercial off-the-shelf software, it’s tough to know where your customization options begin. What companies should you contact? How should you start your research? Thankfully, Ayoka is here to help. We’ve put together this guide to finding your custom software. Once you do find your perfect custom software solution, you’ll never look back. There’s nothing like having a software that works specifically for your needs. Your first step is finding the right custom software development team.

 

Evaluate Your Needs

Whether you’ve been thinking about custom software for years or you’ve just started entertaining the idea, now is a good time to have a brainstorming session. Sit down with your team and think about what you really need from your custom software development. This session will help you narrow your focus and solidify your ideas. Not sure about all of your software needs? Have questions about your best route? No problem. You don’t need all of the answers yet. At this stage, just write down your questions. You can save them for your software development team.

 

Find Local Custom Software Development Companies

When you start looking for custom software development companies, you’ll want to look locally. How local should you go? Assuming that your company is in the US, then you’ll want a US-based development company. If you happen to find a company within your state or even your city, that’s even better. However, as long as you have a US-based company, you should get what you need. Why look local? Because this way you know that your development team is within reach. If you ever have questions or concerns, you’ll know how to reach your team. Furthermore, using a US development team is often more cost-effective than finding a team abroad.

 

Look for Specific Expertise

Next, make sure that your custom software development team can deliver exactly what you need. How can you do that? If you know your specific software needs, you can ask a representative how the company would handle those needs. If you have a more general idea, then find out if the team has worked with your industry before. For example, let’s say that you run a financial company. Does your service’s website talk about financial software on the website? Has your team mentioned financial software, specifically?

 

Check Out Case Studies and Portfolios

Now, let’s take that last step a bit further. Look for portfolios and case studies on your software team’s previous work. Often, you can find these things on their website. If you can’t find what you need on the website, you can always ask. Case studies give you specific examples of your team’s projects and solutions. Look for case studies that reflect your specific needs. Do the solutions match up with what you want for your own software?

 

Get a Free Evaluation

By this point, you’re probably pretty close to choosing your custom software development company. As a matter of fact, you may have even narrowed it down to one or two choices. Now is the time to get a free evaluation. If you have the right company, this evaluation will not come with any sort of obligation. If the company doesn’t offer free evaluations, then you may want to reconsider. Assuming that your potential company does offer free evaluation, now is the perfect time to discuss your software needs. Take note of your thoughts during this meeting. Did you feel like you and the software team were on the same page? Were your questions answered completely? By the end of these meetings, you should feel confident about choosing your team.

 

Communicate with Your Team

During the software development process, try to maintain communication with your team. If you’ve picked the right software developers, they’ll maintain communication with you, too. You should receive regular updates about your software’s progress, timeline, and scheduled deployment. If you ever have questions during this process, reach out. Your development team should be happy to answer them.

 

Custom Software Development

Do you need custom software development? Are you trying to find the service that will work best for you? Then let Ayoka help. At Ayoka, we sit down with our clients and get to know their custom software needs. From there, we develop a specific, seamless software for those clients’ needs. Do you want to make sure that your voice is heard? Then Ayoka is ready to listen.

Top IoT Concerns and How to Handle Them

internet of things

The internet of things has revolutionized a lot of industries. Manufacturing, agriculture, and healthcare have seen some of the biggest benefits. The IoT connects machinery to the internet, allowing different machines to communicate with their users and with one another. Of course, like any other technology, the IoT comes with benefits and concerns. Let’s explore both in the next several paragraphs.

 

Internet of Things Benefits

First of all, what are the benefits of IoT? First, it provides more efficiency than non-connected technology. When pieces of machinery can communicate with each other, they can work faster and accomplish more tasks. Furthermore, when they communicate with their users, those users can stay up to speed and produce more efficient work as a result. Second, the internet of things can improve a work site’s overall communication. If anything goes wrong, employees and contractors can realize it right away and deal with the problem quickly. Everybody gets up to speed within a short time frame, which removes a lot of confusion. Finally, the IoT makes businesses more competitive. With all of the benefits that these machines bring to the table, companies that use them can stand out among the competition and provide better services for their clients.

 

Data Safety

Next, let’s talk about top concerns and solutions surrounding the internet of things. The top concern is data storage and safety. The IoT gives hackers more opportunities to steal private data. Since the IoT is a relatively new technology, it’s still open to a lot of vulnerabilities.

So, what are the solutions to this concern? First of all, if you implement IoT technology, talk to your software engineers about a disaster recovery plan. They can design a system of backups and safety nets than can protect your company’s information. Before you choose your IoT software, discuss the safety of that software with its designers. Ask them what protections they have in place and how they support their clients in the long term.

Finally, the smartest way to implement internet of things software is to use a custom program. Thanks to its uniqueness and extra security, custom software is harder to hack than off-the-shelf software.

 

Implementation

Many business owners have concerns about implementation. Like we said above, the internet of things is fairly new technology. For that matter, installing any new hardware can cause challenges. Thankfully, you can navigate those challenges if you install your technology correctly. One thing you can do is go slowly. Implement one piece at a time, allowing for gradual adaptation. Next, make sure that you educate your employees on each new piece of technology and your overall system. You’ll also want to make sure that you develop a cost-effective plan for installation. Talk to your software engineers about the possibilities. Once again, customization is the best choice. Your customized IoT technology will work more seamlessly with your existing software, which will minimize implementation concerns.

 

Consistency

Now, what about consistency? That’s another concern when it comes to the internet of things. The IoT does lack that consistency on a global basis. As a result, it can be tough to find high-quality IoT technology. When it comes to your hardware and software, you want to make sure that your company doesn’t fall short.

So, how do you handle consistency issues? First, you make sure that you use the best IoT tech provider. Do plenty of research before you dive in. After all, upgrading to IoT tech is a big step. You don’t want to rush the process, only to end up with sub-par technology. Next, you can ensure consistency by using the same company for all of your IoT software needs. This isn’t a good time to mix and match. While that may work for other tech, you’ll need more stability for your IoT machines. Once again, customization gives you the best options. When you use customized software, you can let your developers know that consistency is a top priority for you. As a result, they’ll keep consistency at the forefront when they design your software.

Don’t Make These Mistakes When You Choose a Custom Software Company

Choosing a custom software company is a big decision, and knowing which is the right one can be tough. Custom software can be one of the best things for your company if you don’t make a bad choice.

Here are the most common mistakes people make when choosing a software company:

Choosing a Custom Software Company with Only Single Industry Experience

Software development is not one-size-fits-all. Just because a company is great for someone else doesn’t mean they’ll be great for you. One mistake people make when choosing a company is hiring one that has no experience in their field. They do this because they think software is the same across industry lines. Nothing is further from the truth. Your software needs to meet and surpass the demands of your field. A company may be excellent at serving another industry, but if they don’t know your industry, then you become the trial client. Don’t settle for less, or it will cost you more.

Multiple industry software companies know how to adapt. Because of their experience, they don’t get stuck on one method or one structure. These companies are used to being flexible, which is what you’ll want from a custom software company. This is especially true if a multiple industry company has experience in your industry. Not only can they adapt, but they are familiar with your needs.

Choosing a Non-local Software Company

Many people make the mistake of choosing large overseas software companies. They do this for different reasons, but it’s far from the best option. In most cases, communication becomes difficult, even frustrating, and efficiency takes a hit. It’s also difficult for these companies to invest enough time and energy to get to know a person’s software needs across the world. The physical gap reflects knowledge and communication gaps.

However, choosing a local company has significant advantages when it comes to custom software. Communication is easier when you’re local, which is crucial for the customization process and following maintenance. Better communication leads to a deeper understanding of your needs and a faster turnaround for solving them.

Local US software companies are more knowledgeable and experienced with how software functions in the States. The details are everything when it comes to customizing software, and US companies can handle these details efficiently.

Local companies understand your business. They also know your competition. There’s a certain knowledge that only comes with being in close contact. Local software companies are a step ahead just by having experience in your area and industry.

Choosing a Company Only Because of Price

Everyone struggles with how to determine value. There are several factors that should be considered. On one hand, for the cheapest choice, you usually get what you pay for. On the other, the most expensive choice usually catches you paying extra for nothing. This isn’t always the case, but it’s important to think about what matters the most to you. Custom software companies can be valuable, but price alone doesn’t decide how much.

In addition to price, you value support, modernization, efficiency, risk management, a unique knowledge of your company industry, and more. Consider these when deciding the value of a software company. The right software company will contribute to the bottom-line in a significant way in the long-run. Don’t get distracted by the immediate costs. Cost is important, but it isn’t everything, and chasing after the cheapest or most expensive option can end in regret.

Efficiency determines value more than you might think. Efficient software saves time, increases accuracy, simplifies your processes, and remains reliable. This means that you and your employees also become more efficient. You can do more with less– less people, less time, and less headache.

Choosing Companies Stuck in the Past

It’s an age old story. A custom software company develops a solid reputation. For a time, they rightfully gain a lot of business. After a while, they fall behind in a fast-paced industry, but people still come to them for their reputation. They don’t know any better. They aren’t software experts, so they look for the household name– a name they can trust. It’s only a matter of time until these people realize their custom software has become frustratingly outdated, even though they paid a premium price.

Loyalty is a great thing and reputation matters. But another aspect that people should prioritize is modernization. If custom software companies don’t take modernization seriously, then their company and yours will quickly become irrelevant in today’s world.

Make the Right Choice

Ayoka Systems is local to the US, serves several industries, has competitive pricing, and specializes in software modernization. They prioritize clear and effective communication, and see all stages of customer software development through, from the brainstorming to finished software product and on to maintenance and service. Make the right choice and reach out to Ayoka.

Top Software Needs for the Pharmaceutical Industry

Functionality

The pharmaceutical industry is multi-faceted. Software should be too. There are several areas in the industry which benefit from pharmaceutical software: Manufacturing, Dispensing, CRM, and Billing.

Manufacturing pharmaceuticals is complex and can easily take too much time. Software makes it easy to manage and plan each element of production. This includes extraction of packaging and everything in between. To stay on top of manufacturing in a highly competitive industry, companies use software to manage manufacturing processes. Not only does it save time, but it’s more accurate, saving possible mistakes as well.

Dispensing is handled by pharmaceutical software as well. Pharmacies need a one-stop-shop for handling inventory. This includes movement from store-to-store as well as from pharmacy to customer. Additionally, software gives employees access to inventory data at the click of a button. This ensures that valuable inventory isn’t lost. It also communicates sales data, which is helpful in numerous ways and essential to a well-run business.

Customer Relationship Management analyzes customer data to improve customer satisfaction and increase interaction with potential clients. Software is needed to store and access work order information and transaction details.

Billing doesn’t need to be a separate operation. By consolidating billing within the same software environment, nothing gets lost in the weeds. No company can survive without great billing because, without it, no one gets paid. Great billing requires the right billing codes, which are stored in the pharmaceutical software for easy access. With such a streamlined operation, billing is more accurate and efficient. Therefore, this ensures that money goes to and comes from the right places.

Through Systems Integration, the various areas of pharmaceutical software needs are brought in sync with one another. This brings the whole business under a unified front.

Creative and effective database management

Simply put, the pharmaceutical industry involves a lot of data. Therefore, good software makes accessing that data easy, quick, and accurate. From managing manufacturing processes and materials to acquisition and distribution, pharmaceutical software needs to helpfully deliver information. This is done on the front end and the back end.

On the front end, software needs to be easy to use. This means that it needs to balance simplicity and functionality. In a fast-paced and multi-faceted industry like pharmacy, software makes the job easier, not more complicated. The software interface connects employees to the vast world of data needed to do their jobs.

On the back end, pharmaceutical software needs to powerfully and efficiently get the job done. Good software is clean rather than clunky. Therefore, it shouldn’t waste precious processing time unnecessarily. The strength and speed of great software come from under the hood.

Data Integration Services provide the custom applications needed for pharmaceutical companies to effectively organize and access their immense amounts of data.

Security

Security is a priority for the pharmaceutical industry. This is especially true of software. A Security Assessment ensures that not only is a company in compliance but that they are secure from a breach or cyber attack. In order to maintain a secure software infrastructure, a company should abide by best practices and be aware of their vulnerabilities. Companies like Ayoka Systems provide the necessary expertise to keep pharmaceutical companies secure. They look at business environments, compliance regulations, cyber breach insurance, and more, in order to provide a clear picture of the current and future states of the company’s security. They then establish an on-going management plan for the business. This includes employee training, IT device inspections, software-level security patches, and more. Keeping company information safe is not exclusive to any one type of company, and especially does not exclude pharmaceutical companies.

Ayoka Systems’ analysis provides extensive services:
-Governance
-Security Administration
-Data Loss and Fraud Prevention
-Cyber-risk & Intelligence Gathering
-Security Architecture
-Identity and Access Management
-Program Management
-Investigation and Forensics

Maintenance

The job is not finished once a pharmaceutical software is designed and applied. The industry is ever-changing and evolving continuously. For this reason, software needs to extend beyond its initial phase. Additionally, maintenance is needed to keep software up-to-date, efficient, and ensure that pharmaceutical companies are utilizing the newest software technology. Ayoka Systems’ Application Management Services do just that. When software becomes out-of-date, then companies lose their competitive edge. In the pharmaceutical industry, when a company loses its edge, it loses its vitality.

Ayoka Systems are a custom software development company with decades of experience serving companies of all kinds to meet their unique needs. Through customization, pharmaceutical companies get the flexibility they need to truly optimize their software interaction. Ayoka does it all, from start to finish, and sticks around to keep optimizing, improving, and securing your software infrastructure.

Ready to expand into mixed reality software? Now is the perfect time for that. Mixed reality is still new enough to turn heads, but it’s also established enough that you can get comfortable with the software. Lots of forward-thinking industry leaders have started using mixed reality. In fact, mixed reality is transforming industries. Which industries make the most of mixed reality technology? We’ve listed the most prominent ones below. However, the amount is sure to grow very quickly.

 

Mixed Reality

Before we dive into different industries, what exactly is mixed reality? It’s similar to virtual reality. However, virtual reality immerses people in a completely virtual environment. Mixed reality, on the other hand, layers virtual elements on top of user’s existing environment. Now that we’ve looked at the definition, let’s take a closer look at the industries using mixed reality software.

 

Entertainment

First, the entertainment industry uses mixed reality software all the time. Games use lots of mixed reality. For example, do you remember the Pokemon Go game? Users downloaded an app. Through this app, they caught and trained virtual Pokemon. However, they “caught” these creatures in real spaces. The mixed-reality game layered virtual elements on top of reality.

Of course, other games use mixed reality, too. Many of these games encourage people to go outside and explore. While they explore, they find virtual treasures, tame virtual animals, and more. This combination of real and virtual has caught gamers’ attention. As a matter of fact, many people prefer mixed reality gaming over full VR gaming.

 

Education

Mixed reality software has earned a place in education. Students from preschool to grad school can maximize their learning thanks to this technology. The 3D technology lets teachers bring lessons to life. As a result, they can increase student involvement. The students, meanwhile, get to see these lessons from new angles. They get all sorts of different perspectives. In fact, mixed reality in school may help students gain empathy as they see things from other points of view. So far, studies have pointed to improved test scores in classrooms that use mixed reality, so this technology will likely get more popular with educators.

 

Law Enforcement and Military

Mixed reality software is also used for training law enforcement officers and military members. The software lets people experience high-stakes situations before the stakes become real. This way, they can feel more prepared for danger. They can make better split-second decisions when the situation involves real people.

 

Medical Facilities

Healthcare facilities were some of the earliest users of mixed reality software. Teaching hospitals and medical schools make the most of this technology. They use the software to train students for a range of medical scenarios. It simulates patients going through different physical and mental health scenarios. With this software. students can understand how to respond appropriately and provide the right treatment.

However, mixed reality software doesn’t just help doctors and students. It helps patients, too. Patients with mental health struggles like anxiety and PTSD can used mixed reality in a therapeutic way. For example, some doctors may use mixed reality to help patients practice dealing with stressors in a safe environment.

 

Manufacturing

Manufacturers have started using mixed reality software, too. Just like with law enforcement and medical professionals, mixed reality can help provide training for manufacturers. In school, the software can teach students in a straightforward and practical way. On the job, it can provide training for people learning about new products and machinery. It also gives manufacturers a practical way to review safety protocols.

 

Art

As you may have guessed, a lot of artists love mixed reality software. Artists have used virtual reality for years to bring their designs to life. Now, thanks to mixed reality, they can bring those designs to life in their own environments. For instance, designers can use mixed reality to turn 2D sketches into 3D creations.

Mixed reality also gives artists a way to showcase their work. Artists themselves can often visualize their own designs in various settings. However, not everyone can picture those same designs in the real world. With mixed reality, artists can display their work in a new way, allowing patrons to see the full picture.

 

Marketing

Speaking of getting the full picture, marketers use mixed reality software for that very reason, too. Marketing has always relied on visualization. Marketing designers create images that catch the eye. Writers choose the best words to help people picture their products. Virtual reality lets audiences fully picture products and services. Mixed reality takes it a step further. It lets people picture those products and services in their current environments.

 

Mixed Reality Software

Do you need mixed reality software development? Then you need Ayoka Systems. We can create the mixed reality software that will meet your exact needs. Want to get started? Then contact Ayoka right away. We’ll begin with your free consultation.

 

Need Software Modernization? Local Is Best

Looking for software modernization? Then you need a local software company. Software modernization takes skill, dedication, and a lot of communication. When you choose a company here in the US, you can make sure that this company will provide everything you need. You get a level of transparency that you wouldn’t get anywhere else. Why else should you choose a local software company? We can think of a few reasons. Check out the list below, or call Ayoka for the best local software team.

 

Local Advantages

It’s not just software modernization. When you choose a US-based software company, you get several benefits no matter what kind of service you need. As a matter of fact, we discussed some of these benefits just last week. For example, we’ve pointed out that local companies can give you better communication. A local software company can make itself available to you more often than an overseas company can. As a result, you get faster communication with a deeper sense of understanding. You also get faster turnaround. There’s much less delay. Instead of sitting around and waiting for your software, you can use that software as soon as possible. Finally, you get better customer service when you choose local.

 

Understanding Local Needs

US software companies understand what US software needs. They’ve worked with US software. They’ve used US technology. These companies have seen firsthand just how their software products have impacted industries in the United States. As a result, they have crystal-clear insights into the problems and advantages that US industries see every day. Overseas companies can’t provide that level of understanding. Local companies can use that understanding to help businesses all across the country.

 

Understanding Your Business

More specifically, a local software modernization company can understand your business. Take Ayoka, for example. We always start our process with a free consultation. During this consultation, we learn as much as we can about your business. We get to know you and your needs. Together, we’ll figure out a plan that will meet those needs as seamlessly as possible. We also communicate with you throughout the modernization process. This way, you get to stay up to date at every step of the way.

 

Knowing the Competition

One of the most common reasons for software modernization is a desire to keep up with the competition. When your competition has the latest and best technology, you run the risk of getting left behind. With Ayoka’s help, you can prevent that from happening. When it comes to knowing the competition, you want an American company on your side. After all, who knows American businesses better than those who run American businesses? Since we know the competition, you’ll be better equipped to keep up with it. In fact, you may even surpass it.

 

Progress and Risk Management

Software modernization is a multi-step process. You can’t overhaul your system all at once. If you do, you risk all kinds of glitches and mass confusion. A step-by-step process will give you a smooth transition. During this process, you’ll want an American company on your side. Modernization comes with risks. If you have a local team, then managing those risks becomes a lot easier. Your software team can notice potential problems fast and deal with them quickly.

 

Better Cost Efficiency

When you use locally-created software, you get overall better cost efficiency. For one thing, you’ll get better quality products, which means that the cost of upkeep goes down. For another, the overall modernization process will happen fairly quickly. You’ll run into fewer snags. As a result, you’ll save time, and since you’re saving time, you’re also saving money. Software modernization is a much better investment when you choose a local software company to handle it.

 

Long-Term Customer Support

When you choose a local software company, you also get long-term customer support. It’s one thing to be there for you during the modernization process. It’s another thing to be there long after the process has ended. A US-based company can do just that. If you ever need help or support with your software, it’s much easier to reach a local company when you need them. At Ayoka in particular, we pride ourselves on our customer support. We’re here whenever you need us. We stand behind our products, which means that we’re always ready to provide our clients with the help that they need.

 

Software Modernization

Looking for the best software modernization choice? Then check out Ayoka Systems. At Ayoka, we always put our clients first. Don’t let your legacy software hold you back. Let your business reach its fullest potential. Ayoka will help you get there. Start by requesting your free consultation. Together, we’ll come up with the plan that works for you.

Everything You Need to Know about Foxpro Programming

foxpro programming

Image by skeeze from Pixabay

 

Does your business use Foxpro programming? Are you considering Foxpro for your software development? Foxpro can be a great choice for programming, but it can also come with a lot of challenges. As a business owner, if you’re thinking about Foxpro programming, here is everything that you need to know about your choices.

 

Foxpro Uses

Foxpro is a text-based language that programmers use for database management. Visual Foxpro, the successor to Foxpro programming, is often used for application development. More often, programmers use Foxpro for database management. Foxpro delivers a fast, easy way to query databases and get answers. Since Foxpro is a relational database model, it helps business owners notice patterns that can help them work more efficiently.

Finally, some business owners use Foxpro programming to maintain their legacy systems. Visual Foxpro, the most recent version of Foxpro programming, was discontinued in 2007. That said, the program is still available. Some businesses still use Foxpro because it’s easier than upgrading their entire software systems.

 

Data and Industry

What industries use Foxpro programming? Quite a few businesses benefit from it. For example, the logistics industry has used Foxpro a lot in the past. Foxpro, like we said above, provides database management. Transportation requires lots of data mining. Whether a company transports passengers or cargo, it generates and tracks a ton of information. From tracking inventory to maximizing fuel efficiency, transportation companies deal with a lot of factors. Foxpro helps them see the relationships between these factors and make the best decisions.

Second, the retail industry has used Foxpro often, especially for marketing purposes. Foxpro’s relational database management lets retail industries track several factors at once. For example, retailers might track how quickly their inventory moves during any given season. Then, they might track how other factors affect those numbers. With this information, they can create marketing campaigns for virtually any time and place.

Third, medical facilities have used Foxpro for their own purposes. The healthcare industry tracks a lot of information. They use this information to make diagnoses, run their machinery, provide the most accurate information, and so much more. These facilities have often used Foxpro in their software to make sense of all of their information.

Fourth, finance has used Foxpro often. Bankers need relational analytics for their data. Whether they use that data to update their marketing, avoid fraud, or help others achieve financial literacy, Foxpro software development has helped the financial industry for decades.

Of course, these aren’t the only industries that have benefited from Foxpro software development. Virtually every industry that needs relational data tracking has used Foxpro to get the job done.

 

Pros and Cons

Like any software programming language, Foxpro comes with its own pros and cons. On the plus side, if you choose Foxpro, your developer can work quickly. As long as your programmer knows Foxpro, they can write code fast, so you’ll get your end product soon. Furthermore, those who use Foxpro are often large, well-established companies. If you’re creating a product for sale, using Foxpro in your programming can appeal to those wealthy businesses.

However, Foxpro programming also comes with some setbacks. For example, Foxpro can’t be downloaded by itself. If you want to use Foxpro for yourself, you’ll need a subscription to a broader Microsoft service. The other setbacks come from the fact that Foxpro has been discontinued. Foxpro isn’t supported on some of the latest hardware. Eventually, Foxpro will only be supported on legacy hardware, and legacy hardware can’t last forever which will make Foxpro far less profitable than it is now. Furthermore, because most programmers use Java and other coding languages, you may have a harder time finding Foxpro-related support when you need it.

 

Does Your System Use Foxpro Programming?

If your software system uses Foxpro programming, you may be looking for upgrade solutions. Foxpro and Visual Foxpro are great resources. However, like we mentioned above, it will eventually fall out of fashion. Alternately, maybe you’re looking for a Foxpro-based solution that will help you uphold your legacy system. If you’re like lots of business owners, you may not have the answer yet. That’s okay. You’ll just need to sit down with a software engineering team. Together, you can discuss how the pros and cons of Foxpro apply to your system. Your team will help you come up with a solution.

 

Foxpro Programming and Beyond

Is Foxpro a good idea for you and your business? Are you looking for an upgrade? Ayoka Systems can help. Your Ayoka developer team will sit down with you to figure out the best path. From there, we’ll craft your ideal software. With Ayoka’s help, you’ll have exactly what you need to take your business to another level.

Do you need a custom windows application? Maybe you’ve thought about it for a while, but you’re not sure if you’re ready for customization. The truth is that a custom windows app can give you a great ROI. It’ll serve you far better than your average off-the-shelf application. If you want to add an application to your business repertoire for any reason, then customization is the way to go. Here are a few things that you should know about adding a windows application to your business. Let’s start with reasons to build a customized app.

 

Your Clients Use Windows

It’s not a question of whether or not your clients use windows. The fact is that your clients do use windows. Your job is to find the best way to meet your clients where they are. Often, a custom app is the perfect way to do that. A custom application can help you communicate with your clients, respond to their needs, and make your service easier to access.

 

You Have Complex Needs

For some businesses, apps provide a great way for customers to make orders and form connections. For other businesses, a custom windows application provides more efficiency and simplicity within the business itself. If you have complex technology needs, then a windows app will help you streamline those needs. For instance, a custom windows application may provide better communication between departments. You might use your application to track your inventory. Whatever your needs may be, you can discuss them with your software team. They’ll build an app that can simplify your business life all across the board.

 

You Need More Automation

A custom windows application can help you if you need more automation in your business. Lots of businesses use automation to speed up their processes. For example, some businesses use automated data reporting. This way, business owners can learn more about their own companies and clients. Some businesses use marketing automation, setting up certain actions that simplify their processes. Whatever the case, if your business needs more automation, then your application engineering team can help you make that happen.

 

Windows Form Submission

In addition to automation, a custom windows application can help you with windows form submission. Your clients likely order your product or service through an online form. Why not make that process easier with a customized app that centers itself around your particular product? Your app design team can also streamline and simplify your form submission through your custom app.

 

Communicate With All of Your Apps

Does your business already use custom applications? Does it use several standard, off-the-shelf models? How much easier would your business life become if those apps could communicate with one another? Your windows app can make that happen. You can use a windows app to communicate with your other apps. When you simplify your app communication, you can also save a lot of time; and in the business world, this could also mean saving a lot of money.

 

Business Expansion

When your business expands, it outgrows the capabilities of your standardized softwares. So, how do you bring those softwares up to speed and make sure that they meet your current needs? You find a team that can create your perfect custom windows app. From a single app, you can consolidate your softwares, upgrade your data collection, and give yourself some more room to breathe.

 

Choose a Team that Knows Windows

Of course, you’ll want to choose the right custom software team. How will you know when you’ve found the right team? Well, you can start by asking how much a group knows about windows. To get the best custom windows application for your company, make sure that your team knows windows inside and out. Find a group that has years of experience building custom applications for windows. You can start by looking through a company’s website. Do they have case studies dedicated to windows applications? Do they mention windows apps when they write about their technology? Of course, it also doesn’t hurt to ask. When you find a team that might be a good fit for your needs, schedule a consultation with that team. Ask them about their windows application experience. The more specific their answers, the better.

You want the perfect custom software development service. So, how do you know when you’ve found the right one? For that matter, how do you even start looking? At Ayoka, we want to help. When you start looking for your software development team, you can find the right one by using these 8 tips. These steps will help you narrow down your choices until you’ve found the perfect match. Ready to get started? Then let’s begin with the first tip.

 

Find a Team With Experience in Your Industry

When you look for your software service, make sure that your team has experience with your industry. If your software development team has created solutions in your industry before, then they’ll be familiar with your software needs. As a result, you’ll get better efficiency from the software development process. Your team will also know about the challenges and struggles that come with your line of work, which will help them build the best software solutions.

 

Read Case Studies

Does your custom software service publish case studies? If not, find one that does. Look for a software company that publishes case studies on its website. Research and growth is a key factor for the best software development teams. Custom software is all about problem-solving. Case studies can show you how your team found solutions for specific problems. Notice the patterns after you read a few case studies. Did the software team blend creativity with time-tested thinking? Did they get the results that they wanted? Case studies can give you insight into the development process, so take some time to read a few. Specifically, look for case studies that pertain to your industry.

 

Look for a Range of Technology

Your custom software development service should have a wide range of technology at its disposal. When your team has lots of partners and available technology, you know that it has the tools and the equipment that it needs to develop your perfect software. See if your team dedicates a part of its website to their partners and technology. That section of the website can give you a good idea about whether or not this company can build exactly what you need.

 

Consider Your Data Integration Needs

Next, think about what you need from your data integration. Do you have lots of apps that need to sync up? Do you want to add more mobility to your repertoire? One question that faces app developers is whether they should use APIs or Webhooks for data integration. APIs provide seamless integration, but they do have their limitations, and Webhooks can handle tasks that APIs can’t handle. Does your team know the pros and cons of each? Do they know how to decide which method to use for your applications? If you have extensive data integration needs, ask your team how they’d handle those needs.

 

Find a Reputation for Security

Your custom software development service should have a reputation for high security. Do some searching to find the top-rated security teams. You’ll want a company that can develop safe, reliable software. Ask your team how their software can protect your company from hackers and other security threats.

 

Look for Customer Service

Your custom software team should offer excellent customer service. Pay attention to how this company treats you from the very beginning of your interactions. These interactions will be an indicator of how they’ll treat you in the future. Your software service should be available to answer your questions, help you deal with problems, and more. If your team can’t handle those tasks from the beginning, then you should find a team who can.

 

Choose a Local Team

Look for a custom software development service that’s headquartered in the US. Even better, look for a team that develops all of its software in the US. If you run a US-based company, then you need a US-based software team. This way, you’ll get fast, reliable results. You’ll also have better access to your software team in case you have any questions.

 

Schedule a Consultation

When you choose a software development company, one of the best things you can do is to schedule a consultation. This meeting should not cost you anything. During this meeting, your software experts should take some time to get to know you, ask you questions about your software needs, and make sure that everyone is on the same page. When you chat with your software team, you can get a feel for how well this arrangement will work.

7 Software Must-Haves for B2B Communication

Custom B2B software

B2B communication is an essential part of today’s economy. Wholesalers, manufacturers, and other B2B structures help keep other businesses running. To run a good B2B company, you’ll need excellent custom B2B software. Sure, you can choose a standardized software, but you won’t get everything you need that way. Custom B2B software will provide everything that your company needs while leaving out the non-necessities. If you’re looking for custom B2B software, here are the seven things that you absolutely must have.

 

Mobile-Friendliness

End-users make purchases from mobile devices all the time. However, those who buy wholesale products also use mobile devices often. Mobility means convenience, and convenience often means efficiency. This means that your custom B2B software should offer mobile friendliness. Sometimes, that means using a mobile app. However, it can also just mean making sure that your services and website work well on mobile devices. Otherwise, most of your potential clients will face a tough ordering process. If your software doesn’t provide that level of convenience, your clients might just move to a supplier who can. If you want to meet your clients where they are, then your B2B communication requires some level of mobility.

 

Easy Ordering

Your custom B2B software should also include easy ordering. More often than not, this means that you need self-service options. You provide great customer service, but your clients also need easy ordering forms. Off-the-shelf software can give you the basics, but custom B2B software will give you exactly what you need. Your software team can tailor your forms to your business and your clients. This way, your clients get a smooth process from start to finish.

 

Clear Communication

Of course, while self-service options are important, you’ll also need clear and easy communication options. When your clients need to contact you directly, your software can facilitate that contact. With clear communication, you’ll always know that you and your clients are on the same page. You’ll avoid costly mistakes and make sure that your clients always stay satisfied with your product or service. As a result, your happy clients will keep coming back for more.

 

Marketing Automation

Does your business have marketing automation? With custom B2B software, it could. Marketing automation can help you improve your business practices all across the board. First of all, better marketing software will give you more insight into your customers and their buying habits. It can deploy different actions depending on how your clients interact with your site. When you have automated marketing in your software, you take a lot of the pressure off yourself. You can focus on serving your clients and running your business. Meanwhile, your software will help you with your outreach.

 

Analytics

Next, you need excellent overall analytics from your B2B software. Earlier, we talked about how analytics plays into marketing automation, but it goes much further than that. When you get analytics from your software, you can learn so much about your own business. You figure out what works, what doesn’t work, and what small changes can make a big difference. With the right analytics, you can also get the reporting displays that work best for you. As a result, you can use that information well.

 

Clean Product Showcasing

Whether your clients visit your site via mobile device or desktop, they’ll want to see your products clearly and quickly. Your custom B2B software can help you make that happen. When you choose your B2B software, make sure you have the option of clean and simple product displays. These displays will help you in several ways. First of all, a well-displayed product will help you with your marketing. The more appealing your product looks, the better your business will fare. Second, you eliminate frustration for your clients. They can find exactly what they need as quickly as possible. As a result, they can place orders more quickly and more easily. This ease will help you gain new clients and retain the ones that you already have.

 

Easy Accounting and Billing

Your custom B2B software should also include easy accounting and billing. When you get disorganized with your numbers, your business could experience disaster. The good news is that the right software will prevent disaster from happening. Choose a software that lets you send bills automatically, track your transactions for tax purposes, and file your information in a clear and organized way. Both you and your clients will benefit from this organization.

 

Custom B2B Software

Do you have specific B2B software needs? Are you looking for software that provides the best B2B communication? In that case, you need Ayoka Systems. At Ayoka, we build custom B2B solutions to help our clients run their best business practices. Want to see the difference for yourself? Then contact us for your free consultation now.

Looking for Cyber Risk Assessment Services? Here’s What You Should Know

cyber risk assessment services

Ready to get proactive? Then it’s time to get a cyber risk assessment for your company. Cyber risk assessment services have literally saved companies from collapsing. When you stay prepared, you keep your company safe from attack. Still, if you’re new to the idea of cyber risk assessment, you’ve probably got a few questions. That’s why we’ve come up with this list of things you should know. Don’t see all of your questions below? Feel free to contact us at any time. In the meantime, take a look at this overview. It should answer your most important questions about cyber security assessments.

 

An Assessment Should Include Everything

When you look into cyber risk assessment services, make sure that you choose a service that will dive deep. Your security assessment should go beyond your software. In fact, it should examine your risk from all angles. For example, an assessment company should examine your physical offices, your governance policies, your databases, and much more. If your security assessment company doesn’t have a thorough, multi-step process, then it’s time to look for a new company. Otherwise, your team might not catch all of your potential vulnerabilities.

 

Proactive is Better than Reactive

Like we said, it’s best to be proactive. You’ll want to catch potential problems before they arrive. The alternative is being reactive, or fixing problems after they happen. Prevention is always best. First of all, it will save you money. Recovering from hacks and breaches will cost a lot of money in a very short amount of time. A risk assessment will save you from expensive problems. Second, cyber risk assessment services can also save your reputation. When companies experience security breaches, those companies have to do a lot of public image damage control. Your reputation will get hit especially hard if a data breach impacts your clients’ information. Save yourself and your company from a lot of damage by getting a cyber security assessment as quickly as possible.

 

The Bigger the Company the Bigger the Risk

Businesses of all sizes should get a security assessment. However, the bigger your business is, the more you need that assessment. Bigger businesses generally have bigger databases. They have more expansive software programs. They also tend to have more clients and therefore store more client information. All of this adds up to having more points of entry. Medium and large businesses have plenty of vulnerabilities for hackers to exploit. When you recognize those vulnerabilities, you can protect your company from damage.

 

It’s Not a One-Time Thing

People think of a cyber risk assessment as a one-time event. Of course, it can be a one-time event, but only if you’ve hired the wrong service. The right service will keep helping you long after that initial assessment. For example, your service may create and manage a new security program for your company. It may also track your exposure to cyber attacks over time. Choose a company that will work with you continuously to keep your business safe.

 

You Need Risk Response Training

Do you know how to respond to cyber risks when you see them? Do your employees know? If not, your cyber risk assessment should include risk response training. This training will help you protect your business in the long term. People across all departments can learn how to spot, report, and handle different types of cyber risks. Not only will you empower your employees, but you’ll also gain some extra peace of mind.

 

Compliance Matters

Does your company need to maintain HIPAA, PCI/DSS, or any other form of compliance? Then you need a security assessment. You’re well aware that you deal with sensitive information. It’s up to you to do everything in your power to protect that information. Your cyber risk assessment will help you protect your patients or clients. However, don’t just hire any risk assessment service. Make sure you choose a company that understands compliance laws. This way, your team will understand exactly what you need from your assessment.

 

Custom Developers Stay Ahead of the Game

When you look for cyber risk assessment services, look for a company that develops custom software. Why? Because custom software developers know how to stay ahead of the game. Often, these developers provide customization for security reasons. Custom software is more difficult for hackers to exploit. Custom software developers understand security needs. They can provide the best security assessments. If you’d like, they can also provide custom software solutions for your security needs.
