Custom development for successful project execution

As the digital transformation and computerization of businesses and organizations progress, recurring challenges emerge in your day-to-day operations. Utilizing IT solutions to address these issues is a common strategy. However, defining the software your company and teams need and successfully acquiring them can be a complex challenge.

This article aims to address key questions surrounding specific development, elucidating the distinctions between off-the-shelf software (packaged software) and custom development, and highlighting the benefits of this approach.

Understand Tailor-made development?

An effective platform is one embraced and utilized by end users.

Specific development, also referred to as “custom development,” entails crafting websites, software, or entire applications tailored explicitly to fulfill the unique requirements of a company or individual.

Drawing from precise observations, specialized software is tailored for a specific customer, incorporating considerations such as business activities, size, services, or products offered. This type of software is exclusive to the company, unlike off-the-shelf software initiated by a software publisher and distributed to multiple clients.

Navigating the process of specific development

The custom development process follows these main stages :

  1. Needs definition and Ideation : Identify end-users’ needs and organize them into core functions.
  2. Specification writing: Create a detailed specifications document, dissecting the client’s functional requirements.
  3. Custom Development: Once the specifications document is finalized, the development team can start designing and developing the software.
  4. Testing and acceptance phase: Rigorously assess software functionality, troubleshoot issues, and rectify them.
  5. Solution Deployment : Implement the developed solution.
  6. User support and training: Provide ongoing assistance and training for proficient user engagement.

Why opt for specific development?

Increasingly, packaged software, whether open-source or proprietary, is available and covers a large proportion of needs. However, sometimes they do not cover all the expectations and requirements of the customer, who wishes to develop functionalities in line with its core business and context. In these cases, specific development is required.

This can also be an option when the business wants to differentiate itself from its competitors by offering innovative and unique functionalities or by personalising the user experience.

Custom development: what benefits does it bring to the company?
Custom development serves as a strategic choice, concentrating on features that deliver tangible advantages to the company over the medium and long term:

  1. Enhanced end-user experience (UX journey): Increases the company’s efficiency and productivity.
  2. Business-relevant interface: meets strategic, organizational and technical needs.
  3. Scalability: Custom development can adapt to the company’s growth (real productivity and profitability gains).
  4. Seamless Integration with Third-Party Software.
  5. Adaptability: It can easily align with organizational processes.
