Off the Shelf vs Custom Application Development

Why should one opt for a custom-built application when it is way easier to pick one from the numerous available options or use one which a specific competitor is using or is, recommended by a friend?

A lot of new entrepreneurs ask us such questions, and the answer is as simple as - "Yes definitely you can, but the only challenge is that usually these off-the-shelf systems are made to be generic, and you end up adapting your business process to meet how the system is made instead of the system adapting to your business needs.”

These off-the-shelf systems come with a stack of features that you might not need or never use. But you end up paying for it as it comes in the package and is not customizable. This further leads to adding some custom modules, generally from a third-party that comes at an extra price, with limited functionality, and requiring some additional time on their hands for the developers to build the system and then deploy it.

Some of these pre-built systems do come with an ability to be modified as required but generally come with initial high capital investment and additional ongoing operating expenses if there needs to be another module appended. Thus, one ends up having a double impact on your business.

On the other hand, getting a brand-new custom-developed software proves advantageous, as you will be in charge of designing the system that has only those modules and features needed for your business.

A custom-designed is tailor-made software that includes the entire workflow along with the reports that would help the company keep track of financial and administrative data.

The functionality is designed explicitly for your organization becomes an indispensable part of your day-to-day activities that will make it less dependent on you. It may seem tedious at the beginning, but it helps the business processes be more streamlined and save a great time for other tasks. This only makes the company’s turnover go higher with each passing day.
