Why use bespoke software rather than an off the shelf solution?.
Would you buy a suit that was 2 sizes too big or 2 sizes too small. The same applies to software. Off the shelf products often do not provide everything you need in a system. Bespoke software can be tailored to fit like a glove and is can also be less expensive.
You can buy off the shelf software which can save time on development. But often it only covers 70% of your requirements. What to do about the other 30%? Will the provider develop modules, and how much will they end up costing?
Off the shelf software is shared by multiple customers forcing you take on fields, functionality and reports that are of little or no use to your business. Costly upgrades are forced upon the end user, these upgrades can also change system functionality without your consent.
This is when bespoke software comes in to it's own. As the business environment evolves your system can evolve to meet your changing needs. We often find that businesses are using multiple excel files to manage functions in their business, this can become difficult to manage and inefficient. This is where a bespoke solution comes into it's own. Bringing data and functionalty together reducing time and costs.
