The terms custom software, individual software or also customer-specific software, refer to software that has been developed specifically for the needs of a user or a group of users and is therefore tailor-made. Under the following conditions, individual software is often worthwhile:
Our experience is that the decision to develop their own software or to use a standard solution often depends on the cost for companies.
Although the costs for standard software are initially lower, the costs for customizing often exceed those for individual software development.
In addition, most of these applications come with monthly or annual costs for support or additional storage capacity. In short, the amount of money you see at the beginning is not what your total investment will be.
When you rely on custom software development from the start, you pay only for the features you really need, and not for superfluous functionalities that you will hardly use.
Standard software sometimes encounters hard limitations that do not optimally meet your requirements. Last but not least, the use of standard software makes it difficult to control processes. In contrast, individual software development allows for complete customization to your needs and wishes. Software should follow your processes and not vice versa.
With us you receive individual software development as a holistic service and as a "one-stop-shop". We support you from the requirements analysis to the implementation to the support and maintenance.
A common objection to custom development is the long time to go-live. Part of our approach to custom software development is therefore to deliver deployable software every 2 weeks and keep you in the loop at all times. You determine the priority of the features to be implemented and can deliver real value to your users in a timely manner.
In addition, you can have what you need at the moment developed through individual software development. As your company or business case grows, the software can grow with it, which is often not possible with standard software.
Building custom software from the ground up ensures that your B2B software fits your business model and operations. Custom software also allows you to incorporate your specific branding and design to provide an exclusive, unique experience for users - whether internal employees or customers.
Individual software development
Get the perfect software, individually tailored to your requirements
Many companies and teams have difficulty defining the requirements for their desired software. Since in many cases the requirements must first be defined before someone can be commissioned to develop the software, this often greatly delays development times.
At this point, we help you take this first important step with requirements workshops. Our software developers have years of expertise and know how to properly define requirements for a successful project.
Our agile approach means that changes to the requirements are possible as the project progresses. One of the most important components for us in individual software development is the consideration and inclusion of user feedback throughout the entire process.
