With technology and employee skill sets advancing rapidly, the software your business runs on needs to keep up the pace. One worthwhile question you may consider is: Should we use something off the shelf, or go bespoke?
Here are the top 5 benefits of bespoke software solutions and how it can benefit your business, making it a worthwhile investment.
Quality of Information
A bespoke system can help reduce human errors through better validation and ensure data and reporting are accurate for processes such as invoicing. You may have some repetitive procedures, prone to human error or labour intensive which take up a lot of time. You could automate these activities, freeing up resources.
Flexibility, Scalability & Productivity
Bespoke solutions allow you to mould the system around your business requirements and not limit you to the processes you have available to you. Your software solution will scale your business and provide room for growth. It can boost productivity and maximise existing investments by connecting your systems, accounts, and eCommerce website to your new bespoke system.
Help to retain customers by providing them with additional functionality, such as useful online services or reporting. Investing in the right tools will show your customers that you take both yours and their success seriously.
Stay ahead of your competitors
An application made to fit your organisation can streamline your business, giving you an edge over your competition. Utilising mobile devices, such as iPads and iPhones, can make data entry easier, quicker and more efficient whilst providing your workforce with increased flexibility.
ROI (Return on Investment)
Off the shelf solutions can be costly and contain modules that are not relevant to your business. They are usually “one size fits all” and generally require you to adapt to the way they are designed. Bespoke software is designed around your business. It provides full flexibility to decide what you need from your application to increase productivity.
