A software development becomes a crucial tool to perform day-to-day tasks. There is a great amount of off-the-shelf apps, but sometimes you can not find something that fits you completely, you need some additional features or even tools to increase your efficiency. A customised approach can significantly facilitate your workflow and productivity. The process of creation and implementation of custom software seems to be long and expensive, but you should keep in mind its cost is more than justified in a long-term prospect.

Both custom and off-the-shelf software have its own benefits and downsides. But when we talk about your company's future success - the answer is obvious. The most off-the-shelf programs meet the needs of most users and at the same time lumber systems with useless options or don’t answer your expectations about their functionality and efficiency. Creating tailored software you eliminate unwanted features and make sure your company has everything it requires. You decides what capabilities are put into a custom framework. As far as business expanding needs stability and reliability custom software means simplify the process with their uniformity and standardisation. A single platform allows the whole company and its employees communicate fluidly. To sum up, let point out custom software advantages of off-the-shelf programs:
- Tailored for your specific business needs;
- Automates and streamlines routine business process;
- Keeps data and information in one place;
- No worries about programs compatibility;
- Extra security;
- More effective employees management;
- No license fees, it is yours;
- Easy to use, its is made according to your needs and requirements;
- Increase your company's efficiency and productivity.
In case if the off-the-shelf software doesn’t suit you, and bespoke software development is too expensive, there is another option. Some software development companies can implement necessary features in existing solutions and offer some flexibility. This option may seem to be perfect:
- it is cheaper than order your own software;
- it is faster because developers don’t write it from the scratch, they just add features you need;
- and it is much easier to do than write the whole program;
But the number of the disadvantages are:
- First of all, not every off-the-shelf program will allow modification legally;
- You still need to pay for its usage according to its license terms and to cover additionally the costs for customised development;
- Every time this program has an update you need to implement your changes and features again. And every time this is additional huge expenses for synchronisation and crash for your stable work.

Out vs. In-house App Creation
Whether you customise program or create your own you need professional developers. You can hire an external team of developers, like our development company, or you can create your own internal team. Hardly any single developer can accomplish such a difficult task as custom software creation within a short time. It requires a lot of skills which include planning, coding, designing, UI/UX testing, quality assurance testing and many others.
Outsource Software Development
We call it outsourcing when you hire an outside agency or service provider to complete some business task for you, in our case, it is a creation of tailored program for your business management. Why do people outsource? There are certain reasons and advantages:
Expert skills. To create a simple mobile app with some free app building sites isn’t that hard, but a creation of the whole program with multiple functionalities tailored specially for you that is different. Such task requires graphic design, maybe website development, coding in various program languages.
Equipment. You might need certain equipment and inventory that will cost a lot and won’t pay off with the accomplishment of one task. Our company, which is specialised in bespoke web and mobile app development has everything that is necessary.
Temporary needs. You need developers only to develop custom software once, later you might need to update it and upgrade, but it is not something you need every day the year round. If you hire your own team of developers you need to pay developer salary monthly, but if you hire outsource company you pay only for work that was done. Besides, you can’t afford to hire highly skilled developers for a part time job.
To Sum up...
In other words, outsourcing is a perfect way to hire experts for temporary tasks. You may think that the hourly rate or project rate is high, but it still will be cheaper than pay annual software engineer salary and benefits. When you collaborate with our company you may rely on our technical support even after we launch your software.
- You have to hire developers with required expertise; and you need to pay salary the whole year round;
- And have to manage this additional staff and help them to study a lot,
- Letting them to participate in the international conferences providing with new testing devices and giving an opportunity to investigate the latest changes for iOS, and Android, and Windows, and Microsoft development standards;
- You have to pay fees for these developers licenses; and so on.
