Custom software is one of the best investments you can make for your business.
While the initial cost may discourage you from making the investment, remember that the entire purpose of this project is to help you generate more revenue.
In order to understand all the advantages of custom software, you’ll first need to learn the difference between custom and ready-made software.
Custom software vs ready-made software
If you’re looking to build an application that’s tailored to meet your specific needs, custom software is the way to go.
Custom software development ensures that you only end up with the features that are helpful to your business. No need to pay for features that don’t apply to you.
For example, if you’re a towing and boat service company looking for a better way for your employees to accurately record their time on each boat, you’ll need custom software.

Ready-made software is designed to blanket the needs of multiple business processes, such as:
- Customer relationship management,
- Business process management,
- Customer service,
- HR, and more.
Microsoft Office is a great example of this type of software. It doesn’t cater to the specific needs of one company in particular. Instead, it offers a general set of functionality to meet the average needs of most business owners.
In theory, ready-made software sounds good and can be very helpful when you need a simple solution. But when you start losing money due to complex problems, you’ll need to find complex solutions.
Increasing your revenue
In addition to saving money by only paying for the features you need, you’ll also generate more money in the long-run when you invest in custom software. Custom software can help you increase your revenue by:
- Building a unique brand that stands out among competitors and attracts new customers.
- Providing you with only the features that you need to generate a healthy ROI–unlike ready-made software applications.
- Easily adapting to meet the unique needs of your business and customers. Ready-made software, on the other hand, is difficult to customize and often requires extra training and money. After all, this pandemic has taught us all that businesses who are quick to adapt are the most successful.
