Have you ever wondered what custom software can do for you and/or your business? In this article I am going to talk about the benefits of using bespoke software;
- Service/Product too complex
Are your services/products too complex for off the shelf software to sell? Using software tailored to your business will allow you to have control over the way you sell your service/product. This includes adding multiple options and adding specific delivery options.
- Better user experience
Users will have a better experience on your website if you are using bespoke software, because the software is created for your business every feature will run smoothly, be relevant to your business and have a purpose. Due to this the users will have a smoother time looking through your website, which as a result will make them more likely to purchase your services/products, and from their positive experience using your website they will also be more likely to recommend you to a friend or buy from you again.
- Time saving
How does a custom piece of software save you time? Because the software is made for your business, you will have no features that aren’t relevant to your business, so you will not spend time trying to figure out features that you won’t ultimately need. Also because the software was designed to your needs, it will make a process that used to take a while on off the shelf software, a quick and easy job on your new unique software.
- Customised reporting
Having a piece of software that is tailored to your business will allow you to create customised reports. The advantages of being able to create customised reports, is that you can take any of your data and output it in any way you like, it could be a graph, a directors report, a database, which you can export as a .csv which you could then place into mail chimp for an e-mail campaign, or you could even export the data as a spreadsheet and add it into your accounting software.
- Workflow and software integration
Bespoke software will increase your workflow because it is tailored to your needs, due to this its features will be optimised to work in the quickest and easiest way for you, which means tasks will significantly cut down the time it used to take. Your new unique software will be capable of integrating with other software to make your life easier, so you don’t have to switch between types of software.
