Softcontrol - trusted advice, concept-development and implementation of your best-fit custom software solution.
Questions about new software investments can be a headache
When confronted with a need for a new or improved software solution, managers are faced with many confusing questions: Do we really need software for this situation and is it feasible and affordable to introduce the solution? Is there actually a technical solution to my requirement? Which consequences and interdependencies do I need to consider? Is there an off-the shelf solution or do I need a custom-made software? And what about IT security?
Making things even more complicated: every organization is unique, and when it comes to software, one size rarely fits all. A good software solution should align to your optimized businesses and work processes, and meet your daily as well as your long-term needs in an elegant, flexible and scalable manner.
Regrettably standard out-of-the-box solutions often require that you change your processes to align to software’s inflexible structure. Some attempt complicated and costly modifications to an off-the-shelf product…and end up with an ugly and cumbersome make-shift construction which is difficult and expensive to use, maintain and expand.
Similarly, modernizing or adapting a legacy system can appear difficult, and it’s not always clear what the best or most obvious approach might be.
When is custom software required?
Luckily here at SoftControl we have grown and refined our software development services for more than 20 years, and we can say with confidence that we have seen it all. We understand the typical and non-typical challenges that can be addressed with custom software:
- A business performing a unique activity or adding unique value is by definition not standard and therefore not likely to be served by standard software
- If you have a large number of users in your organization, the number of software licenses can become cost prohibitive. Custom software gives you the ability to completely assign software use. In many cases, SoftControl software will be a cheaper option with greater capabilities.
- Integration of existing systems in your business functions to allow interoperability and communication will require custom software. SoftControl develops the middleware which allows you to retain the use of existing software
- You may need to retain complete control over the timing and extent of changes applied to core business systems. Because of this, packaged solutions are not the optimal due to lack of functional control
- A business deliberately setting out to use software as a strategic advantage is likely to require custom software
- You may have a requirement to develop a system for a specific purpose where available packages don't quite fit, or are cluttered with unnecessary features which distract your employees from true efficiency
Any of these situations ring a bell? Talk to us at SoftControl because we have ‘been there, done that’ many times and will give you an honest appraisal of which path will best serve your needs.
