Top benefits of bespoke software development

Nowadays, getting a simple software for your organization has become a very hectic problem. Even after spending tons of money on purchasing the off the shelf software, there is no assurance you will get the maximum benefit. Most of the time, the ready-made software fails to comply with different requirements of the companies and eventually operation process becomes much harder. To eliminate this problem, smart developers often offer a unique solution to business owners. They take the requirements of the customers and create unique software from scratch.

Bespoke software development

Bespoke software development refers to the process in which the developers take detailed information about their client business and develop unique software. Though some of you might think the ready-made software is the best solution, in reality, they have huge limitations. In today’s article, we will highlight the top benefits of bespoke software development. Though the concept of custom-tailored software is relatively new, it will be the most popular software solution due to the diversity in our traditional business.

Amazing flexibility

You might buy the most expensive software in the market but there is no assurance you can bring necessary change to the software to meet your business growth. Most of the time, business owners have to source for other software which is a very time consuming and expensive process. But if you start software outsourcing, you have the opportunity to customize the software according to your needs. Just talk to the developers about the things which you need to get it done and they will give you the perfect solution within the shortest possible time.

Associated cost

Most of the people think bespoke software is much more expensive and they eventually opt-in for the ready-made software. But you need to consider the long term associated cost. If you start using the ready-made software it won’t take much time to get frustrated with the limited features of the software. Most importantly, you will be charged for the licensing renewal fees every year. To avoid such problems, many smart investors consider software sourcing as the best solution to cut down the associated cost in the long run. If you do some research, you understand why big organizations have their custom made software event though they can manage expensive software.

Integration and adaptability

If you go for the bespoke software, it can be easily integrated with the other essential elements required to run your business. Most importantly, the developers will do all the hard work so that the software becomes easy to use. If you work with the newly purchased software, then you will have tons of restrictions. Learning, the proper use of such software might become a complicated process. To eliminate this problem you can develop custom software which has fast integration capability and a very user-friendly interface. So training the office staff will be a lot more easily. The developers will give all the necessary training so that the office staff can operate the software with an extreme level of ease.

Security factors

Those who are thinking to use the most popular software available in the market often forget the fact, security is a great issue. The hackers are always trying their best to jeopardize the big software companies by getting access to the sophisticated information of their clients. But this will not be a problem for you if you start using newly developed software. You will be the owner and no one will have access to the source code. The hackers will hardly know such software exists. So, if you are overly concerned with the security factors to make sure you are not using too common software. But does this mean your software will never have any security issues? The obvious is the answer is NO. But if you operate the bespoke software in an organized way and keep the confident login information secret, chances are high you will never run into security problems.

Things to consider

By now you must have known the key reason for which the bespoke software is becoming so popular in today’s world. But you need to carefully select the developers or else you might have to lose a huge sum of money. Make sure you discuss the overall requirements with the developers so that you don’t run into complications during the initial stage. Never keep things in mind since it will limit the capability of your software. But bespoke software shouldn’t be a solution for those who are looking to short term business. If you have long term vision and looking to take your business to the next step, only then you should go for such customized software development.

Bug vs Feature Seattle Edition

Yesterday I wrote about the effect of the $15 minimum wage is having on Restaurants in Seattle (no word on if Mika is taking up the Mikaburger challenge yet)

But it’s worth noting that even if the result of this minimum wage rise is the closure of business and the loss of jobs for hundreds of workers it’s still worthwhile for our friends on the left.

First of all small businessmen tend to trend toward the GOP so anything that hinders them naturally is an advantage to the left but consider the longterm effect.

As a general rule when you have hundreds of workers, all from the same industry suddenly out of work the glut of people with the same skills decreases the odds of finding a job in a similar field.  But if you are a low skill worker in a field that pays minimum wage you are now competing with every college student & high school student and other person who due to skill or circumstance can not hope to do better than minimum wage.

What does that add up to?  It adds up to public assistance, it adds up to food stamps and an increase in the state spending for the type of social programs that Democrats are constantly championing that somehow rarely manage to get said people off the dole.

And what do you get when you have hundreds of people and their families suddenly dependent on the government?  You have a ready supply of reliable votes for the Democrat cause.

And if said people fail to find any kind of work the party can even use them as activists, funding pseudo “groups” designed to get people out of the same dependence that their policies put them in.

All those people suddenly being out of work isn’t a bug for the left, it’s a feature.
