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? 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.

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.

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

Are you ready to build a custom windows application? Then Ayoka is the team that you need. As windows app experts, we can build a solution that will put an end to your current software struggles. We tailor our windows apps to each client’s individual need. Start by having a chat with the Ayoka team.

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.

 

Custom Billing Software

Ready to see the difference that custom billing software can make for you? Then it’s time to call Ayoka Systems. Your team of Ayoka engineers will build a completely customized system that will fit your business like a glove. With your new software, you’ll see an excellent ROI, gain better speeds, see all the benefits we’ve listed above, and so much more. You can start by getting your free consultation. Contact Ayoka today to get started. Once you’ve experienced the custom software difference, we promise that you’ll never look back.

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.

 

Construction Industry Software

Looking for the best construction industry software? Then you’ll want to customize. Ayoka can help you with that. Our US-based company can build a software that will help you take your business to new heights. Start by getting your free estimate today. Let’s talk about what your business needs and how Ayoka can provide it.

Buying Custom Software? Here are Some Things to Consider

Looking for a custom software service? Well, you’ve got a lot of options. How do you choose the right one? We’ve put together a list of things that you should consider. Keep these things in mind when you choose your custom software service. Once you’ve considered all of these factors, your choice will become much easier. Have questions? Ayoka is here to help. But first, take a look at the list below.

 

Your Industry

Before you choose your custom software service, think about your industry. Depending on the business you manage, you probably have some very unique software needs. That’s why healthcare, construction, schools, and retail establishments use custom software so often. These industries have very complex and important needs from their software. Now, why does your industry matter when you choose a software service? Because you want to make sure that your software engineers have worked with your industry before. When complex human needs get involved, you’ll want a team that knows what it’s doing. Before you sign on with a software engineering service, ask them about their work with your specific industry. If they have plenty of relevant experience, then you’re well on your way to making a great choice.

 

Your Model

Next, consider your ideal software model. You might not always know exactly what you need, and that’s fine. However, if you do know what you need, make sure that your software team can deliver. So, what do we mean by “software model?” Ask yourself whether you want a fully customized software or a hybrid model. With the fully customized software option, you get complete customization from top to bottom. With a hybrid model, we can add customization to your existing software. If you want to get the most from a legacy system, or if you just want to tweak certain aspects of your software, then a hybrid could serve you very well. If you know what you want, ask your software company about their experience designing this type of service. If you don’t know what you want, find a custom service that will help you figure it out.

 

Your Database Needs

Now, think about what you need from your database. Do you need custom database design along with your regular software needs? If so, ask your custom software service how they handle database design. At Ayoka, we’ve written about custom databases before. Your database provides the backbone of your business. If you need a customized database, then talk to your custom software service about their database design techniques. Make sure that you’re getting everything you need from your service.

 

Efficiency and Flexibility

The best part about using a custom software service is that you’ll get way more efficiency and flexibility than you would have gotten with an off-the-shelf software. Still, you’ll want to make sure that your software team knows all about your efficiency and flexibility needs. If you need more than the average business, then let your team know.

 

Communication

Speaking of talking to your software designers, make sure that you’re using a service with good communication. Overall, your service providers should listen to your needs. They should spend a lot of time getting to know you and your business model. When you talk to your software team, do they listen carefully before they offer ideas? Do they make suggestions and listen to your input? Do they communicate their perspective clearly? If you can answer “yes” to all of these questions, then you’ve probably got a great software team. If not, then it may be time to move on. When you upgrade your software, you’re making a big change. Your team should communicate with you every step of the way.

 

Security

Overall, a custom software service can provide way more security than the average software. Nevertheless, make sure that your software team understands your security needs. This is especially important for businesses that deal with people’s personal information. If you work in the healthcare industry, you need to make sure that your software designers can cooperate with HIPAA regulations. If you work in finance, you have to make sure that your team can provide the security that you need to maintain your clients’ trust.

 

Support and Maintenance

When you look for your custom software service, find people who stand behind their products. With a standard, off-the-shelf software, you can always find software help by googling any issues you may find. With custom software, troubleshooting will be more personalized. You’ll want a software design team that will be there to offer support and maintenance whenever you may need it.

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.

How much time do you spend on marketing every month? Are you getting the results that you want with your time? If not, it’s time to take it up a notch. With custom marketing software solutions, you could save time and get better results. Every industry uses marketing on some level, and Ayoka has years of experience helping all sorts of companies get marketing results. Our clients have noticed numerous benefits thanks to their marketing software. We’ve listed just a few of our favorites. You can experience all of these advantages and so much more. Let Ayoka help you reach your full marketing potential.

Start With Insight

Marketing doesn’t exist in a vacuum. It begins with research, data, and clues about what works and what doesn’t. That research becomes much easier with marketing software. Your software will help you start with insights that can help you make better long-term marketing decisions. First, it can gather data about customer buying patterns. It can also keep tabs on inventory or services that don’t sell as well as others. Then, you can use this information for business intelligence decisions. Eventually, you’ll notice patterns that you can use to your company’s advantage.

Reach Your Target Market

How well do you reach your target demographic right now? Do you have room for improvement in your outreach? Marketing software can help. With the right software, you can use multiple channels to reach a wide audience. For example, Ayoka can set up a program that will help you reach more customers with email campaigns. You can also use your new software to post ads on social media, search engines, and more. Instead of turning your marketing into a confusing mess, you’ll have a single source for all of your outreach tools.

More Than Just Leads

Marketers talk about generating leads, but what does that mean for you? Sure, leads are important, but eventually, you’ll need more than leads alone. With smarter marketing, you won’t just get leads. You’ll turn leads into repeat customers. Marketing software can help you develop a “follow-through” technique. From first customer contact to the “thank you for your purchase” email, you can handle everything through your software. Furthermore, you can do so efficiently, without tracking all of those steps yourself.

Automate Your Actions

Speaking of efficiency, one of our clients’ favorite parts about custom marketing software is its ability to help them move from one task to another. Marketing involves a lot of creativity and brainstorming. However, it also involves a lot of repetitive, less creative work. Let your marketing software take care of the more dull tasks. This way, you can free up brain space for generating ideas.

Improve Your CRM

The right marketing software can help you improve your customer relationship management (CRM). Earlier, we mentioned that you can start your marketing campaigns with insights from your data. Why not start by using that data to help with your CRM? For example, you might use your data to figure out how different customers interact with your company. When you find out how your customers prefer to interact with you, you can meet them on their level. Almost right away, you’ll come up with better ways to reach your customers.

After you run an ad campaign, you can also use this information to reflect and refocus. You’ll learn from the things that worked and the things that needed improvement. As a result, you’ll create better and stronger marketing campaigns in the future.

Custom Solutions for Your Industry

Now that we’ve discussed some marketing software benefits, let’s take a look at the kind of software that will work best for you. You have a lot of choices in terms of your marketing software. However, your best choice will always be the one that was built specifically for your business. Different industries use different marketing techniques. Custom software can help with all sorts of marketing from retail to healthcare.

Even within the same industry, no two businesses use the same marketing strategy. Your software should work for you. Let your competition have the “one size fits all” model if that’s what they want. You, on the other hand, can take a different approach. If you want to create unique marketing opportunities, you’ll have to start with unique software. Start by having a talk with your software architects. Let them know exactly what you need from your marketing software. This way, you can create a custom strategy together. You’ll have a software solution that works well within your existing business structure.

Top Benefits of Using a Software Integration Service

software integration service

At Ayoka Systems, we provide top-level software development solutions. We often create entirely new software solutions for businesses that need a complete change. That’s not all we do, though. Sometimes, you don’t want to overhaul your entire system. You may already have a system that works for the most part, but the things that don’t work are slowing you down. This is where a software integration service can make a huge difference. With software integration, an engineer can create new solutions to merge with your current software. When you choose software integration, you’ll notice a lot of different benefits in a short amount of time. We’ve included just a few of our favorites in the list below.

No Need to Start from Scratch

Like we said, you may not want to get rid of your entire software system. We can work with that. A software development team from Ayoka can make sure that you don’t have to abandon what already works in your favor. When we meet with you, you can let us know which software aspects are working for you and which ones are giving you trouble. From that point, our development plan will use your current software as a foundation. Since you’re getting custom solutions without completely scrapping your software, you’ll save a lot of money in software development costs. You’ll get the best of your current software plus all of the rewards that come from custom development.

Maximize Off the Shelf Software

Speaking of getting the best of both worlds, a software integration service can help you use custom solutions to bridge gaps in your off-the-shelf software. Maybe you’d like to create better communication between your existing applications. Maybe your technology has evolved, but your standardized software can’t keep up. In any case, a software integration service can build a technological bridge. The process can help you get the most usage out of your standardized software program.

Leave Inefficiency Behind

A software integration service can also boost your company’s overall efficiency. When we integrate your new software with your existing software, you’ll notice that your entire system just works better than it did before the integration. First, part of the software integration process involves getting rid of the software aspects that just aren’t working. Just like when you prune a plant, pruning your outdated software can lead to better, more efficient growth. Furthermore, when your outdated or broken software pieces aren’t taking up your storage and data space anymore, you’ll get to work at faster speeds. As a result, you’ll be able to accomplish more with your software. Furthermore, you can also get rid of other inefficiencies like double entry. If you merge your softwares into one system, you won’t need to enter data more than once. This benefit will mean fewer mistakes and better accuracy, which will also contribute to your business efficiency.

Better Data Access

Since we’re on the subject of data and data space, let’s talk about how a software integration service can give you better access to your data. New technology has likely increased the amount of data that your company can access. However, outdated software platforms are limited in their ability to help you reach that data. This lack of access can hold you back because if you had better access to that data, you could use it to learn more about business trends and your clients’ preferences. Software integration helps by providing new channels for data access and by reconfiguring old channels. You can then use your newly-accessible information for business intelligence.

Room to Grow

Outdated software can leave you without the scalability that you need. Often, companies that use standardized software quickly outgrow their own programs. The rest of the business world evolves, but their own software leaves them trailing behind. When customers are ready for growth, software integration can provide that growth. New solutions can add scalability to existing software programs, letting you keep the software that you like without getting stuck.

Improved Workplace Communication

With a software integration service, you can improve your workplace communication. When your company starts outpacing its old software, communication slows down. This can be detrimental to companies that require communication between departments. Software integration can provide better channels for communication, whether that communication happens via mobile application, computer program, or web program. By enhancing your business communication, you’ll create a better workplace culture. Solid communication can boost virtually every part of a company.

Software Integration Service

Are you looking for a top-level software integration service? Ayoka Systems is here to provide exactly what you need. We’ll identify all the ways that we can help you get the most out of your current software. From there, we’ll develop your custom solutions and integrate them into your plan. Let’s talk about your software integration solutions today. Contact us now to set up your first meeting.

Pharmaceutical Software Development

pharmaceutical software development

At Ayoka Systems, we recognize the importance of emerging pharmaceutical software development. With all of the new technologies emerging in the medical field, the pharmaceutical industry can’t afford to lag behind. Furthermore, with the recent uptick in pharmaceutical needs, pharmaceutical software development can help provide those needs faster and more accurately. If you scroll below, you’ll find just a few of the ways in which pharmaceutical software development has improved the industry. If you’re ready to upgrade your existing technology or even implement entirely new solutions, Ayoka is here and ready to help.

Mobile Technology Takes the Stage

Out of all of the most recent pharmaceutical software development innovations, mobile technology has risen to the top. In fact, many experts believe that mobile technology is the reason for the most recent pharmaceutical surge. This fact is somewhat surprising given the average age demographics of the patients who use this kind of technology. The patients who need the most innovation tend to be older, especially with today’s increasing lifespans. Nevertheless, older generations have gotten better at using this technology, and they’ve used it to improve their health and wellness. Mobile technology provides convenience, not only for the patients themselves but for pharmacy techs. People who use this technology enjoy speed and convenience while managing prescriptions. Mobile technology, therefore, has allowed the pharmaceutical industry to save time and money.

Protocols and Training Materials

Pharmaceutical software development has provided updated training materials for new pharmacy school graduates and people in pharmacy job training. New employees can use the technology to learn the protocols for their specific place of employment. Of course, the technology also provides materials for universal and country-wide protocols as well. Emerging pharmaceutical software can also provide refresher material for those who have worked in the industry for a long time. As new research and protocols emerge, the mobile technology gives pharmacy employees a fairly quick and convenient way to stay caught up on the latest procedures. Thanks to this technology, the pharmaceutical industry can provide all of these materials without wasting paper on printouts or pamphlets.

Communication for All

Emerging pharmaceutical technology has given doctors an easier way to authorize prescriptions. Mobile technology especially has made the process so much easier and more straightforward than it used to be. Not only have doctors experienced more convenience, but so have pharmacy technicians and the patients who get those prescriptions filled. By improving communication between all three of these demographics, pharmaceutical software development can shorten the time between prescription authorization and refills. The technology can cut back on patient wait times because patients can use the software to know exactly when their prescriptions are ready to be filled. Patients may also use the software to request refills on eligible prescriptions. Doctors can use the technology to see when the patient has obtained his or her prescription and authorize refills when appropriate. Overall, better communication means better efficiency, which is crucial to the pharmaceutical industry.

Clinical Trials

Pharmaceutical software development can also aid researchers in clinical trials. With better software comes better data collection. Pharmaceutical software not only allows for more data, but that data can arrive much faster than it would have arrived with paper reporting. The faster the data arrives, the faster researchers can make use of that data. Therefore, researchers can streamline the entire process from data retrieval to data implementation. Pharmaceutical software development can even help researchers notice relevant patterns in the data, which leads to better interpretation and thinking outside the box. In the long run, these advances have the potential to save lives.

Tracking Logistics

Mobile pharmaceutical software development gives pharmacy management an easy and convenient way to track inventory. Techs can see what the inventory looks like at a glance, often without even walking into the storage space. This way, they don’t have to interrupt conversations with customers or disrupt their work days. They could also use the technology to keep track of shipments from various locations and keep customers updated on shipment progress. When certain medications are on backorder, for example, pharmacy techs can let their customers know about it and provide estimates about when the medication will arrive. People in the industry can also use their software to stay on top of the rules and regulations associated with pharmaceutical delivery, thus avoiding costly mistakes.

Pharmaceutical Software Development

Ayoka Systems has always been on the cutting edge of healthcare software, including pharmaceutical software development. We understand the unique needs of people who work with health-related software, which is why we know that custom solutions are better than generic one-size-fits-all software. If you also believe in custom solutions for your pharmaceutical software development, then give Ayoka Systems a call. You can reach us right here in Texas at 817-210-4042. You can also contact us through our website.

At Ayoka Systems, helping our clients with their software product development projects is one of our favorite parts of the job. We will proudly help you develop your product from beginning to end. We’ve helped clients from all across the board. From banking software to medical software to all kinds of other software, we’ve helped our clients develop innovative new solutions. Whether you want to develop B2B or B2C software, we have the tenacity and the know-how to make it happen. Below you’ll find out some of the many things that we bring to the table when it comes to software product development.

We Help You Develop Your Vision

You already recognize the need for your software product development. Maybe you work in the medical field and want a new software to improve specific patient outcomes. Maybe you work in logistics management and need a better way for your clients to manage their cargo. Whatever the need is, we’re ready to help. You may already have the beginning of a vision in place. We’ll help you expand on that vision during our first meeting with you. We’ll also let you in on some of the practical steps that will help you take your vision from the idea phase to full realization.

We Minimize Your Risk

During the initial planning stages, we put a strategy in place that will protect your vision from harm. This includes determining who has what intellectual property rights from the outset. We’ll take a look at your target market and assess the level of real-world interest that your product is likely to gather. We’ll talk about ways to fill potential gaps in interest so that your product doesn’t lose any sales momentum. Of course, these aren’t the only steps we’ll take to minimize your risk. We’ll also work in such a way that protects your reputation. We’ll avoid releasing products too soon, for example, so that you won’t gain a reputation for a hasty, buggy product. Instead, we’ll help you create a product that your end users can enjoy while you proudly stand by your software.

Furthermore, we’ll spend a lot of time examining your potential ROI to help you minimize risk. We’ll examine your best and worst case scenarios, and then we’ll employ the strategies that will help you get the return on investment that you need. At Ayoka, we fully understand that starting software product development from scratch is both more risky and more time consuming than working with existing software. We know that when you do start seeing your ROI, it needs to be worth all of the time and effort that you put into the software. We do everything in our power to make it happen.

We Protect Your Vision

How else can Ayoka minimize your risk during your software product development? We protect your vision from copyright infringement so that your intellectual property stays your own. First of all, we maintain confidentiality in our meetings. We’ll maintain utmost security to protect your developing software from hackers and other malicious threats. Furthermore, the fact that our company is based in the USA gives you added protection. We code every bit of software right here in Texas, so your ideas don’t become compromised overseas. At Ayoka, we do everything that we can to protect your creative work.

We Get the Timing Right

A lot of successful software product development depends on the timing. At Ayoka, we always strive to get the timing just right. If you work in a highly competitive field, you don’t want to delay your product release. If you wait too long, you risk losing clients to a competitor with a similar vision. On the other hand, as we mentioned earlier, you also don’t want to release the product too soon. At Ayoka, we’ve found just the right balance of timing for your software product development, and we’ll keep you updated on all the progress that we make to make sure that we’re living up to your software needs.

We Use Agile Methodology

At Ayoka, we prefer the Agile framework for software development. This method emphasizes adaptability and efficiency, both of which are highly important to us. While Agile methodology uses specific work and planning sessions, it also allows room for evolving visions and for responding to unexpected challenges. We like the fact that Agile provides a balance between steady work and flexibility. Even better, the Agile method allows us to repeatedly report back to you as the visionary for the software product development. You can have as much involvement as you want to have with this project because our methods allow flexibility on all levels.
