Custom software development is the designing of software programs for a specific organization. This software is developed to specify the client’s needs and desires much more than an off the shelf product. Often times the off the shelf products offer more than is needed and can lead to confusion and non-use.
At Skyline Graffix, we create custom software for clients that are looking to use their knowledge and understanding of their business to increase their efficiency along with market share. We start from white page up and help the client understand the entire process from start to finish.
Many off-the-shelf solutions are very powerful, checking a lot of the box’s retailers seek in a software solution. However, there is no packaged solution out there that does everything you need it to. Off-the-shelf software is meant to meet many needs for many companies, but they don’t address the intricacies and nuances unique to each organization. This can be a massive disadvantage to retailers, especially since other retailers are already investing in custom solutions (Walgreens, Macy’s, Walmart, Target, among countless others).
Customized software development entails the commissioning, development and release of a software product tailored to a single entity. For example, an application created for Outback would be used only by that restaurant and the department for which it was designed. The software is designed with the company’s infrastructure, branding and implementation needs in mind, so it works only for that organization.
