What is Bespoke software?
Bespoke software development is an approach, in which applications or other solutions are developed specifically for customer needs. Unlike off-the-shelf products, these applications aren’t for the wide audience.
1. Scalability and flexibility
Bespoke software solutions adapt to the growth of your business. They easily accommodate process changes, increased workloads and additional integrations. The software’s flexibility allows your business to expand as much as it is necessary to meet your business’ needs and objectives.
Although the initial cost can seem higher as compared to off-the-shelf software, in the long run it will prove to be less expensive as licensing, upgrade and subscription costs will no longer be present.
3. Complete ownership
Having your own software differentiates your business and gives you full control over your developed solution. It is you who decides if it needs additional features or customizations.
4. Fast integration
Deciding to develop a solution that meets your business needs allows you make all the necessary integrations from the beginning, according to the existing hardware and systems that your business currently uses. There are no limitations as to what you can do with your own software.
Another major benefit of bespoke software development is security. A tailor-made application that is only used internally cuts down the risk of attacks.
As the owner of the software, you are in complete control of your developed solution. You can easily implement new changes and additional features according to your business’ growth or your clients’ requirements. Also, having complete control over your software solution it is you who can solve any issues that may arise and you don’t need to depend on external help.
By developing a custom software that best suits your business’ needs and requirements, you have a competitive advantage . You can easily differentiate yourself from your competition by having a unique and a better product dedicated entirely to your business.
