Each company has its own knowhow comprising of its specific business processes and other attributes. In past years, computers became omnipresent and having a software infrastructure is a must for any prosperous company. Sophisticated software solutions should provide your company an advantage over its competitors by lowering expenses and speeding up your company’s response to your client’s needs and thus making them use your services next time. There are two basic options for adopting a software solution:
- buying an existing software product
- creating custom software solution
In both cases, this step has to be carefully weighted, since it brings much indirect expenditure.
Off-the-shelf Software. Existing software solutions are usually sold in large quantities and are thus more affordable. This is, however, not a general formula, because such products can be intended for larger businesses and thus more costly than software tailored exactly for your needs. The sole process of selection a software product which matches your needs can be very time consuming and hence costly, because each one must be studied beforehand in order for your company to decide its suitability. The other problem is if there is no product meeting your requirement, in which case your company have to adapt itself to processes, which were used for the design of the most compatible product. This implies additional expenditure.
Custom Software. On the other hand custom software solutions make use of current processes in your company and focus on refining instead of changing. Software analysts will help a company determining its exact needs of the software system, pointing out excessively costly and unimportant features and introducing new ones based on their experience and eventual knowledge of your business. This process results in written software analysis, which can be regarded as a blueprint of software system the company need. In this document, all important functionality is described and problems are solved. It is then used to implement the software solution.
Both approaches have advantages and disadvantages for your company. Existing software products are clearly less expensive, because you are buying something that many companies bought before you. It is important to note, that expenditure of adopting (deployment and employee training) both existing and custom-built software is roughly the same and higher than obvious and thus narrowing the gap between custom and off-the-shelf software. Custom software is tailored to your company’s needs and, if analyzed properly, can make your company much more effective than your competitors.
