Why Bespoke Software?
Companies often develop an organic approach to their software systems. They find applications to store customer data, another to calculate and provide quotes, they then have orders coming in from their website which then need to be input into Sage for accounting.
Over time they find that most applications won't talk to each other so they have to re-key data between them resulting in more inefficiencies.
The options then are to find an off-the-shelf program which has typically been developed for a specific industry sector or go for the bespoke option.
Off-the-shelf systems typically try to cover everything that you may possibly need or more likely everything the developers think you may need. A lot of development goes into these systems but you probably won't use a lot of the functionality or it may not work the way you want it to. These systems can be expensive as a result.
Bespoke software provides a tailored solution to your requirements. Your processes are analysed, optimised and the system is developed around your requirements so you aren't paying for something you won't use. It's often much cheaper to get a bespoke software solution rather than off the shelf and the key point to remember is that it will be built around your requirements, no one elses.
