If you need to develop something that is a little bit different but could really help your business then you need some bespoke, or custom software. We aer more than happy to help, and remember, our advice is always free.
Some of our projects don't fall under a specific title
Automated Driving Licence checks which look at the DVLA database for a national insurer
A bespoke intranet solution for a UK business with over 100 sites
A phone number rotation application for use on a client's website meaning they can allocate a different phone number to all of unique web visitors that visit the site at any one time
Any so many more.
Bespoke Vs. Off The Shelf
|Off the Shelf||Bespoke|
|Often lower up-front costs||Often lower running costs over the years|
|Many features, most of which you will never actually use||The features you need with the knowledge that you can always add more features when needed|
|Often costly to upgrade to the newest version||Upgrades are dependent on the needs of your business and often come with a low cost|
|The software won't always integrate with current software which can result in duplication of processes||Easy to integrate with existing processes and software|
|24/7 support from various parts of the world||Support from a team you have worked on the development of the build|
|With so many features you don't require, training across the entire package can result in overload||Easy to train your staff on the exact parts of the software they need to use|
|Same piece of software your competitors use||If built and integrated properly, you can gain a competitive advantage over others in the same field|
Why should I not buy off the shelf solutions?
You may find that there is an off the shelf solution to your problems that will do exactly what you need. In which case, we fully recommend you buy that.
However, you will probably find that there are solutions in the market but they don't do everything you need, are over complicated or are just over priced.
By buying bespoke you are more certain that you are getting what you want and need. Plus you are more involved in the build so can give feedback to get it working just the way you want it to.
When we needed to buy a dialler solution for a business we work with we decided the best option was to build it from scratch and create a bespoke solution that worked with their requirements exactly. When we told people about this, they loved the fact that we could do the exact same thing for them and even for their clients too.
We call our system Comunik8.
