Looking for Texas web development? In that case, you have choices. As a matter of fact, those choices can get overwhelming, especially if you have a specific software project that you want done well. So what makes Ayoka in particular the best for web development? Our clients could tell you plenty of reasons, but for now let’s stick with the top four. 

Ayoka Is Local 

First of all, if you want Texas web development, then you want a web development service based in Texas. That may sound obvious, but lots of web development companies do most of their work overseas. This approach is often cheaper for the development company, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t come at a cost. Clients may have to wait longer for their product, and getting support is much more difficult in these circumstances. Ayoka, however, isn’t an overseas company. In fact, we’re right here in Texas. As a result, you get easy communication, and you won’t have to worry about delays. 

Ayoka Works with Several Industries 

Next, you should make sure that your Texas web development company has the right expertise. We’re not just talking about software expertise, either. The right web developers will understand your industry. If you’re developing web software for healthcare, for example, you need a team that understands HIPAA compliance. The Ayoka team has worked with clients in several industries. We’ve developed software for healthcare, finance, retail, transportation, and much more. 

Ayoka Puts Clients First 

Our clients matter to us more than anything else, and that’s why we always put our clients first. Our clients are at the center of our web development process. We always make sure that our clients get exactly what they need and more, and we’re always available when our clients need product support. If you have questions at any point of the process, we’d be happy to answer them. 

Ayoka Exceeds Expectations 

Among Texas web development companies, Ayoka is known for exceeding expectations. For the Ayoka team, enough is never enough. We’re always asking ourselves how we can make things better, easier, and faster for our clients. However, just because we exceed expectations doesn’t mean that we don’t have fair prices. As a matter of fact, our pricing has always been competitive.

What You Should Know about Cognitive Software Technologies

Cognitive software is software that imitates human thought. However, unlike human thought, cognitive software can analyze a virtually unlimited amount of factors when it makes decisions. Humans, on the other hand, can usually only process a handful of factors at a time. Back in July, we discussed some of the industries that benefit from cognitive software technologies. Maybe you’ve already decided that cognitive software is right for you. If so, here are a few things that you should know. 

Choosing the Right Source 

First of all, you’ll want to make sure that you get your software from the right source. You have a lot of options, so how do you make sure you’re choosing the right software company? Start by looking for companies that develop customized software. When it comes to cognitive software technologies, customization will take you much farther than off-the-shelf software. With customization, your software will be optimized with your specific business in mind. 

Next, look for software developers who work closely with their clients to provide them with exactly what they want. Communication is everything. In this case, your best bet is looking for US-based companies. You’ll have better access to communication, and you’ll face fewer delays due to time zones. 

Obviously, you should look for developers who have experience with cognitive software technologies. When you talk to different companies, ask about their experience with cognitive software and your industry. 

Finally, your software development team should offer excellent customer support and have consistently good reviews. 

Get to Know Your Software 

What else should you know about cognitive software technologies? You’ll need time to get to know your new software, especially if you don’t normally use cognitive software for business. Because cognitive software imitates human thought, working with your new software is almost like getting to know a person. Give yourself time to explore your software’s features. You should also set aside time for employee training on the new software. Feel free to ask your software developers lots of questions, too. Your development team can help you make the most of your software. 

Stay Up to Date 

Cognitive software technologies are becoming increasingly popular. By using these technologies, you’re keeping your business up to date. This way, your competition can’t sneak past you, and you’ll see lots of benefits with customer interaction, marketing, and other business factors. 

Cognitive Software Technologies 

Ready to transform your business with cognitive software technologies? Let the Ayoka team help. We develop custom cognitive software for healthcare, education, finance, and plenty of other industries. Contact us today to start with a free consultation. Let’s talk about your software needs and how cognitive tech can help.

Have You Considered Semi-Custom Software?

Custom software can give you more freedom, scalability, and clarity than your standard off-the-shelf software choices. Still, not everyone is ready for fully customized software just yet. If you want some customization but don’t want to overhaul your entire system, why not look into semi-custom software instead? With semi-custom software, you get to keep your current software, but your team will engineer some specific customizations for your business. Why do people choose the semi-custom route? Here are some of the most common reasons. 

Stand Out 

Semi-custom software provides the same basic benefits that fully-customized software does. When you choose partially-customized software, you can still provide the service and experience that standardized software can’t provide. As a result, you’ll still stand out among the competition. 

Faster Turnaround 

A lot of people need customization quickly. For example, thanks to the recent CBD boom, agriculture and sales entities have had to expand their software along with their expanding businesses. However, customization takes time. The development process has several stages. Semi-custom software, however, doesn’t take as long as fully customized software because it’s naturally a smaller project. As a result, you can start using your software more quickly than if you choose the completely customized route. 

Cost Reduction 

A lot of business owners want custom software but need a way to reduce costs. If that sounds like you, then semi-custom software can help you save money. It’s a cost-effective way to get the most from your software. Whether or not you choose full customization later, partial customization can help you save money now. 

Exactly What You Need 

You might already be happy with your current software, but maybe there’s just one thing that needs improvement. If you’re mostly happy with your software, then there’s no reason to change everything about it. Why not just fix the one thing that causes trouble? Or why not just enhance the one thing that could go the extra mile? If you take the semi-custom route, you can do that. 

Semi-Custom Software 

Whether you want semi-custom software or fully-customized software, Ayoka Systems is here to help. We’ll work with you to learn everything there is to know about your software needs. Whether you already have a plan or need help coming up with the basics, we’ve got you covered. Get in touch with us today to find out how we can help. When it comes to software development, you want the most creative and detail-oriented team on your side. Ayoka Systems is that team.

What Engineers Wish Everyone Knew about Custom Software

Custom software often makes the best choice. You can get software that is designed to work perfectly within your business. Instead of conforming to meet your software, you can have software that works for you. Still, there’s a lot that people don’t realize about bespoke software before they get started. When you’re well informed about your customization choices, you can get the best experience from your software and its development process. When it comes to your customized software, here’s what engineers wish everyone knew. 

The Right Custom Software Company Matters 

The best way to get a good experience right out of the gate is to find the right software company. We get it, though. It’s not exactly an easy process. There’s a lot that goes into finding the right custom software company.

Still, you’ll want to take this time upfront to make sure that you’re completely happy with your choice. First, look for online reviews for different software development companies. It’s not a flawless approach, but it gives you a great place to start. Next, read case studies. If you can’t find case studies on a company’s website, ask if they have any available to read. Case studies will let you know whether or not a company has the right experience and can develop the right solutions for your company. Finally, get some free consultations. Your consultations should always be free, and they’ll help you see whether or not you’ve got the right fit. 

Communication Is Everything 

Clear communication can give you the best software experience. There are a lot of things you can do for better communication with your custom software engineers. First, know what you want. When you have a clear idea of what you need and don’t need from your software, then you’ll have a smoother development process. Understand your business goals and how you want your software to contribute to them. 

Next, ask lots of questions. Write down your questions before your first consultation starts. You should also feel free to ask questions at any point during the software development process, and your team should be happy to answer them. 

Finally, find a team that’s intentional about communicating with you. One-sided communication can make software development frustrating. You want a team that will check in with you and keep you up to speed. 

Have a Plan and Stick With It 

How do you get the smoothest custom software process? You use a straightforward plan and stick with it. Your software team can handle a lot, but when business owners add many new requirements throughout the project, the project slows down and creates frustration for everyone involved. Even the simplest parts of your software take hours of work to develop. Some additions can take days. If you do add a new piece to the puzzle, understand that this new piece will take time and increase your budget. 

You Have Money Saving Options 

Custom software development is often more cost effective than off the shelf software. When your software is designed to work perfectly with your business practices, then you can save a lot of money and increase profits in the long run. Still, custom software is an upfront investment, and you may want to look for ways to save some money on it. There are several things you can do that we’ve addressed in the past. For example, you might consider semi-custom software options. 

Partner with Your Software Team 

Bespoke software is a business, of course. You pay for a service, and you receive a service. However, buying custom software isn’t the same thing as buying a sandwich or a piece of clothing. There’s a lot that goes into the software development process. As the client, you’re a big part of that process. When you choose a custom software service, you’ll get the most out of the experience if you see your software developers as your teammates. This mindset will make both you and your software developers more comfortable with communication. It will also allow you to take more ownership of your software and be more comfortable using it. 

Customer Service Shouldn’t End with Delivery 

You can get excellent support throughout the development process, but it shouldn’t end there. Your custom software team should be available for support long after they’ve deployed your software. If you have questions, concerns, or just need help with your software, your development team should be there for you. Nobody knows your software better than the people who developed it. When it comes to troubleshooting or even just answering questions, they’re the perfect choice. 

Custom Software With Ayoka 

Are you looking for a custom software team? Then Ayoka is here and ready to help. We’ll work with you every step of the way to make sure that you get the best software solutions for your needs. Get in touch with us today to get started. Let’s schedule your free consultation.

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 

Now, what happens after we’ve delivered your product? A lot of software development services will leave you on your own. Ayoka doesn’t work that way. 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?

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.

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.

Looking for a guide to adding custom software development 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 help you in your custom software development. 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.

Top IoT Concerns and How to Handle Them

internet of things

Image by jeferrb from Pixabay

 

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.

 

Internet of Things with Ayoka

Are you ready to get started with the internet of things? It’s a big step, but it’s a big step that will absolutely be worth it for your company. Don’t trust your IoT needs with just any software company. When you use the best software development team, you’ll minimize your risk and maximize your rewards. That’s why you should call Ayoka. Ayoka’s custom software team will design IoT software that will work seamlessly with your existing tech. We’ll work with you to figure out exactly what you need, and then we’ll get to work on a plan designed just for you. Ready to dive right in? Want to ask more questions before you get started?

Everything You Need to Know about Foxpro Programming

foxpro programming

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. Whether your software solution involves Foxpro or something else, our team has you covered. Ready to get started on your software? Contact Ayoka today for your free consultation.

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.

 

Custom Windows Application

Ready to make your billing system easier and faster? Your billing may be complex, but that doesn’t mean it has to be difficult. Ayoka can help you simplify your entire billing system. At Ayoka, we’ve simplified billing for all sorts of businesses. Whether you run a B2B business, a B2C business, or anything in between, we’ll work with you to create the best custom solution. Are you using an off-the-shelf billing system these days? Here’s how a custom billing software can make your business life easier.

 

Manage Custom Billing Rules

Here’s the biggest difference between custom billing solutions and off-the-shelf Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems: An off-the-shelf ERP won’t readily handle custom billing rules. If you need custom billing rules, you’ll have to customize your system. If you start with a standardized ERP, this process becomes costly and time-consuming. On the other hand, you’ll get a completely different experience with a fully customized system. A customized system lets you set your own billing rules in place. You get exactly what you need from the very beginning. As a result, you’ll see a major ROI, and you’ll see it fast.

 

Don’t Halt Your Upgrades

If you do customize an off-the-shelf ERP, you may not get your upgrades as often as you need them. Once you customize a standardized ERP, it becomes very difficult and costly to upgrade that system. When you finally do get your upgrades, you may have to customize your system all over again. In the meantime, you’ll face all of the risk that comes from a delayed upgrade. For example, you could leave your system vulnerable to hackers and other dangers. You may lose the security fixes and other features that come with the newer version of the ERP. That’s why the leading companies prefer custom billing software. With custom software, you’ll get your updates in a timely manner. Your system will stay safe and up-to-date.

 

Unify Your Billing

The more complex your billing is, the more you need a custom billing software. How many types of billing does your business use? For example, does your business deliver a subscription service? What about one-time payments or hourly invoices? If you use a combination of billing types, then you need customization. With a customized billing software, you can unify your billing system and make the entire process easier. At the end of the day, you’ll save time. Imagine what you could do with your business if you had some extra time.

 

Automated Invoices

Speaking of having extra time, how much time do you usually spend on your invoices? You could shorten that time with the automation that customized systems offer. With customization, you can get quick and easy invoices. Do you offer an auto bill pay option for those who use monthly subscriptions? If not, you can start offering that option with your custom software. In addition, your software could send automated late notices and request fees from those who miss payments. All of this adds up to you getting paid faster. When you get paid faster, you can do more with your business. Accomplish what you want to accomplish without worrying about payment delays.

 

Offer Convenience for Your Clients

In the paragraph above, we mentioned automatic subscription payments. These and other options don’t just make business more convenient for you. They also make it more convenient for your clients. This convenience means happier customers, and you already know how important it is to keep your customers happy. The end result, of course, is better business. If word of mouth travels, you may even notice an increase in clients. The longer you have custom billing software, the more you and your clients will notice a difference.

 

Gain Complete Compatibility

At one time, most people paid their bills from desktop computers. These days, people need more options. People pay bills and receive payments via computers, phones, and tablets. Is your billing software compatible with all of these options? Customized software will give you the compatibility that you need. Once again, you’ll offer convenience to your clients, and your clients will appreciate it. You’ll also notice a major difference with your custom billing software. When you can check invoices and payments easily from any device, you’ll save a lot of time and effort.

Why the Construction Industry Needs Custom Software

The construction industry absolutely needs customized software. After all, there’s no business quite like construction. Construction companies provide a valuable and worthwhile service. They also provide a unique service. That’s why construction companies must have unique software. Otherwise, they’ll have to make adjustments so that their one-size-fits-all software can keep up. That’s unfortunate, because if there’s one industry that cannot afford to cut corners, it’s the construction industry. Thankfully, custom construction industry software can help these companies thrive. Here are some of the reasons why custom software can help the construction business run efficiently and professionally.

 

Mobility for Work Reports

Customized construction industry software can help you make the most of your mobility. Lots of businesses benefit from software mobility. For construction managers, however, this mobility is absolutely crucial. At the end of the day, construction is a very mobile business. Your employees and contractors work at different job sites. Adding mobility to your software can keep your business organized, especially when it comes to work reports. With mobile daily work reports, construction employees can track their jobs and report what they accomplished that day. This method gives you the organization that you need to run your business well.

 

Payroll and Invoicing

Once you have trackable hours, your management team can use that information for payroll. If you run a construction business, you likely have several types of employees. You probably pay many of your employees and contractors by the hour, for example. Other employees make a regular salary. Your payroll software lets you handle payroll for all different types of employees and contractors. The best payroll software will let you customize your payroll organization to fit your needs. You can also submit invoices, using your software to communicate with your clients.

 

Workflow Management

Does your current software help you manage your company’s workflow? It should. If it doesn’t, a customized option can help. Construction work isn’t always straightforward. The construction workflow involves lots of different people working different jobs at the same time. Construction work gets finished in chunks, and those chunks can be hard to measure and manage. Your construction industry software should help you organize and work with all of your information. With customization, your software team can show you where your workflow management falls short. Once you get that customization, you’ll have an effective way to reorganize, assign duties, and more.

 

Data Management

Speaking of managing your information, how well does your software handle data management? Do you have automated reporting? Are you taking advantage of all the data that your company produces? If not, custom construction industry software can help you change that. Like we said, you generate a lot of data. In fact, you probably generate more data than you realize. An automated reporting system can show you lots of patterns that you may not have considered. You can then use these patterns to make better estimates, establish an efficient workflow, and notice what changes you can make to take your company to the next level.

 

Coordinated Communication

Customized software can also help you improve company-wide communication. Through your software, you can communicate with contractors, employees, management teams, and anyone else involved in your major projects. With the right construction industry software, your communication can go far beyond those daily work reports mentioned earlier. You can also receive updates about project status, look out for possible delays, and keep everybody in the loop. When it comes to construction, disaster can strike at any time someone isn’t on the same page as everyone else. You can make sure that this doesn’t happen.

 

Client Management

Of course, you can also use your construction industry software to communicate with your clients. Any time your clients have questions, you can have the right information at your fingertips. You can also use your software to send emails and photographs of the construction site for those who want updates. As we’ve mentioned in previous blog posts, good software means better work, and better work means more client satisfaction. Your customized software can help you keep your clients happy.

 

Tailored to Your Specialty

Customized construction industry software can be tailored to your specialty. For instance, do you handle general construction or specialty construction? Do you build homes or commercial buildings? A lot of construction industry software takes a standardized approach. Custom software, however, can better reflect your company’s size and specialty. This way, your software will work more seamlessly with your business.

How Barcode Software Can Make Your Business Life More Convenient

Can barcode software make your business life more convenient? It absolutely can. At Ayoka, we develop top-notch barcode software. Our clients use this software for customer care, inventory tracking, B2B communication, and more. Barcode software has grown a lot since its early stages. Today, business owners can make major changes with this simple solution. Interested in learning more? Then read on. Below, you’ll see just a few of the benefits that our clients have reported with their custom barcode software.

Better Visibility

Barcode software gives your product better visibility. If you have any measurable inventory, you need barcodes. If your products move between locations, you need barcodes. Those barcodes will help your clients trace products. They’ll see when their products are in transit and when they’ve arrived in specific locations. As a result, your clients get consistent knowledge. They’ll also get more accuracy. Because of these factors, your clients can make better decisions about products. Barcodes remove the uncertainty from the shipping process. When you remove that uncertainty, you gain trust. With more trust, you get more loyal clients. That’s why barcode software can help you improve your business overall while making your life more convenient.

Better Product Tracking

It’s not just about your clients tracking products, though. Obviously, you’ll want to check your own inventory, too. Barcodes will give you those tracking capabilities. Barcode software is perfect for tracking inventory across long distances. You can check for updates as the products move. As a result, you can make better estimates about how long shipments will take during delivery. Overall, you’ll be better informed about your own company. Within a short amount of time, you can figure out how and when to make changes that will give you more speed and improve your business. Why should you use random guesses? You can avoid trial and error when you have accurate tracking information.

Tracking Sensitive Products

When you deal with sensitive products, barcode software can make all the difference. What do we mean by sensitive products? One example is food. If your company deals with any sort of food, especially perishables, then you have sensitive tracking needs. When it comes to food, you need to know where the product is at all times. Barcode software will help you keep tabs on your product. When you have recalls and other problems, barcode software can remove some of the complications so that you can act fast. The healthcare industry gives us more examples of sensitive products. Medical supplies have to travel fast. Suppliers and recipients need to know where the product is, especially in case of emergencies and shortages. Barcodes can help you make that happen.

No More Manual Entry

Barcode programs can virtually eliminate your need for manual data entry. Without manual entry, your data entry gets much faster. Humans can take several minutes to complete data entry. Over time, those minutes add up and take a large chunk of time out of your fiscal year. A barcode scan, on the other hand, gives you instant data transfer. Furthermore, it eliminates the possibility of human error. You get the exact numbers right away. There’s no need to double check or deal with errors.

Better Data Collection

Thanks to this automation, you get better data collection overall. We already talked about removing human error. Now let’s discuss some other ways that barcode software can improve your data collection. Barcode scanners can help your company handle more complex data. Your system can receive data from several different sources within a short period of time. With other forms of data entry, your data comes to your system more slowly. Barcode software, on the other hand, gives you information instantly. Furthermore, barcode scanners give you exact data, not just estimated numbers. You know how much inventory you have and where your inventory is located at all times. With better data collection, you can make better decisions.

Fast Data With Minimal Cost

When people think about fast data, they assume that the speed will cost them a lot of money. With barcode software, that’s just not the case. As a matter of fact, barcode scanning software is a highly cost-effective measure. You’ll see the difference in a lot of ways. For example, barcode scanners are easy to learn how to use. You won’t have to waste time teaching new employees your entire barcode system. They can get straight to work on more cost-effective uses of their time. Furthermore, barcodes are cost-effective in and of themselves. Creating a barcode doesn’t cost much money at all.
