Custom software ...
Let’s cut right to the chase! The biggest fear people have of custom software is the cost, and rightly so. There is no way that you can have a custom accounting application built for your business for the same cost that you can purchase Quicken, Solution 6, or MYOB.
The same will be true for most common commercial software categories including point-of-sale systems, warehousing, inventory management, staff management, call centre management, website development. If you’ve evaluated the existing options, or are finding limitations with your existing software, then it’s time to look for alternatives.
You need to consider the cost to your business when your existing systems simply don’t work as well as they should. How much are you losing because your current software is inadequate, in terms of reduced productivity, wasted staff time, unable to perform critical business functions and lost sales due to unhappy customers?
Most businesses have staff who develop internal systems, most often using spreadsheet software, such as MS Excel or simple databases. At first these systems seem like a great idea and can be a useful temporary solution to software shortcomings. Longer term experience however is often that these systems become too complex to manage, or moreoften, the staff that developed these systems move onto other jobs. Suddenly the business is either missing a vital tool, or using a system with no accountability.
Off the shelf software is usually licenced on a per user basis and this can get expensive if you have more than a few users.
It is extremely important to know what you are entitled to do with the custom software you get developed.
Comformark will make it perfectly clear what your rights are with any software we develop, in a plain English contract.
