Custom Software Development – Houston, Texas
Companies today are under pressure more than ever to reduce costs, increase employee productivity, and maximize profitability. Business software deliver these benefits by improving scalability, portability, and accessibility.
When should you select a custom software instead of packaged software?
When you think about using business systems to help your business grow, the next step will be to compare custom software vs packaged software. You can analyze your need by considering the following points to support your decision:
Availability: Are there any existing mature software on the shelf?
Cost: If you select packaged software, you may have the following fees: package software license fee, customization fee, yearly maintenance fee, and upgrade fee. If you select custom software, you will have these fees: development cost for custom software, maintenance fee, and any license fee.
Current needs: What are your current needs for a system and how will packaged versus custom software fit into those needs?
5-year business goal: Will the custom software be able to continue serving your business in 5 years or will you need to purchase a new software package at that time?
Limitations: The limitation of packaged software is that you will not own the source code, therefore customization will be limited. If the package software is offered by a less than stable company, your access to customer support is also at risk. Another limitation to consider is the operating system. If the system is PC-based, then you will be limited to the particular Windows version that the software was designed to support. The limitation of custom software is that it is created from scratch, so the potential for failure can be great. Maintenance cost will also be higher than packaged software. If you choose custom software for your business needs, it is extremely important to carefully choose the software company that will develop your software, considering their overall experience and track record to help ensure the best result for your technology investment.
