Benefits of {bespoke} software

Let’s make great things together

Software solutions are a necessity to run a business efficiently and profitably. This was made abundantly clear by the pandemic. Bespoke software offers unlimited possibilities for your company, irrespective of size or industry. If you have been considering acquiring software for your business, you have two options: an off-the-shelf package produced for mass market consumption, or a bespoke solution tailored to fit your company’s goals and objectives.

Off-the-shelf software
Commercial products are cheaper and less time-consuming when compared to custom software solutions. Ready-made packages are instantly available for use, but they are designed to answer a multitude of demands for countless organisations. The number of features can slow down instead of improving productivity. Additionally, it can be challenging to find all the functionalities required in a single package.

Bespoke software
There is often as misconception that bespoke software is too expensive. This is oftentimes a false economy. Saving money on an off-the-shelf system at the beginning does not mean that system will be cheaper in the long run. There are many ways to look at a bespoke software solution. Do you have a good ERP Solution in place (e.g., Syspro, Sage Evolution, Palladium)? Blue Banana creates bespoke front-end solutions which are web-based with data available in real-time. This works hand in hand with your ERP system.

It can take both time and money to develop a customised program, but it should be regarded as investing in the future of your business.

Six benefits of {bespoke} software

1. Control
Investing in custom software development puts you in the driver's seat, giving you full control over the final product. Rather than settling for off-the-shelf solutions that may not meet all your needs, bespoke software enables you to design a solution that perfectly aligns with your business goals and processes. With dedicated business analysts and direct contact with the development team, you have the opportunity to shape the software as it's being built and provide feedback that ensures the end result meets your expectations. Plus, with the ability to adjust requirements and upgrade at your discretion, you can future-proof your investment and avoid costly compatibility issues. In a world where technology is constantly evolving, custom software development offers businesses the agility they need to stay competitive and thrive.

2. Simplicity
When it comes to software solutions, commercial products often come bloated with unnecessary features that slow down performance and frustrate users. With bespoke software, you get exactly what you need - no more, no less - streamlining workflow and eliminating unnecessary clutter. This tailored approach also means employees will have an easier time learning and using the software, without wasting time on irrelevant components. By working closely with developers throughout the process, you can avoid costly mistakes and ensure seamless integration with your existing systems. Say goodbye to juggling multiple off-the-shelf products and hello to a customised solution that puts your business needs first.

3. Efficiency
Choosing the right software can be a game-changer for your business, improving efficiency and boosting staff morale. Bespoke software takes it to the next level, bringing employees together and increasing productivity. With customised solutions, setting goals becomes a breeze - you'll gain a better understanding of your business needs and where you're headed. Plus, bespoke software offers powerful analytical tools to visualize the impact of your work and identify areas for improvement. Thanks to agile development, changes and upgrades can be implemented quickly and efficiently, ensuring your solution stays up-to-date and aligned with your evolving needs. In short, bespoke software is the smart choice for businesses looking to drive growth and stay ahead of the competition.

4. Scalability
Off-the-shelf software solutions often force businesses to choose between underpowered, cheap options or expensive programs that exceed their needs. On the other hand, bespoke software offers scalability that adapts to your business as it grows and evolves. As the owner of the intellectual property, you have complete control over upgrades and extensions without the need to purchase additional packages. Plus, with no licensing fees based on the number of users, you can add as many team members as you need without worrying about costs. Bespoke software is the ultimate investment in your business's future, ensuring that your technology solutions keep pace with your growth and ambitions.

5. Branding
Attention to detail is the key to software success. With extra features developed uniquely for your business, you’ll stay ahead of the competition. Personalised tools will help your sales and marketing teams boost your brand. Building a professional brand identity will help you win new customers by showing them your business is dynamic and ahead of the curve.

6. Ownership
With bespoke software, you own the product, which means you are in full control. You can easily switch to another software company if you're not satisfied with the service, and you don't have to pay any license fees per user. Bespoke solutions allow you to decide how many employees can access the software without any additional costs, and integration with your existing ERP system can further save you money on user licenses. Owning your software not only protects your business but also offers significant financial benefits. Take charge of your technology solutions with bespoke software, and watch your business thrive without the burden of restrictive licensing fees.
