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.
