Is Custom Software right for my business?
Custom software is more
expensive than buying "Off-The-Shelf" software. This is similar to the
difference between building a racing car from scratch and buying a car
off the factory assembly line. The racing car performs a specialized
function (going fast) and requires a lot of attention to keep it at its
best. It costs quite a bit more than the one that came from the
assembly line. The car you buy from the factory has most of the kinks
ironed out before you ever see it, and costs a lot less, but may not do
exactly what you want it to do.
If your business has unique ways of operating that are difficult to
find "Off-The-Shelf" software to match, then custom software may be
right for you. It does not make sense to write custom software if a
commonly sold package does everything you need.
Of course, one big advantage of having custom software is that it can
grow and change with your business on a day-to-day basis. When your
business needs change, you won't be left with a static piece of software,
waiting for the next version to come out. You just let us know what you
need, and most changes can be made within a day or two. Our continuing
