WHY CHOOSE US FOR

CUSTOM APPLICATION

What is Custom Application?

Custom Application is pretty much custom software development, where the designing of software applications is for a specific user or group of users within an organization. Software like this created to specifically address these users’ needs better than more traditional and widespread off-the-shelf software. Custom application/software is usually created just for these specific users by a third-party or in-house developers and is not packaged for resale in the market.

Custom application/software vs. off-the-shelf application/software

Off-the-shelf software is packaged software application to address a large audience with varying, albeit fundamentally similar, needs. Like, Microsoft Word is created for the mass public as a solution to the diverse needs of its users. It therefore, doesn’t help a specific group as custom application would be able to.
Customized application/software development encompasses the commissioning, development and release of a software product designed for a single entity. Like, an application tailored for Bank of America would be used only by that company and the department for which it was created. The application is designed with the company’s infrastructure , branding and implementation needs, so it works only for that companies requirements.

The pros of custom software development

The best benefit of custom application is that it allows features that off-the-shelf software does not address. Designing an application with your businesses’s requirements in mind normally leads to a boost in the level of productivity once the solution is launched.
If you have a software application designed to increase productivity or address an internal requirement, its cost is going to be offset by the promise of higher efficiency. If your entity has a requirement that is specific enough to customize an application, then customizing a solution would be a smart decision.

The cons of custom software development

The designing of customized software requires important resources, which in turn could increase the cost. When a business wants to development a custom application/software, it will need to cover all of the costs associated in the development phase.
Off-the-shelf- application/software is affordable at a low price because the cost is distributed among many customers/users. Custom software,on the other hand, is tailored for one outfit – your company.
To do custom application/software correctly should have an in-depth understanding of the company’s requirements and be able to communicate how you would like the product to give a solution to those needs.
It is pretty normal to run into new needs along the way in the development process, and can cause added costs and development time. This can further lead to loss of project scope and a product that is different from what you originally started with.
That’s why US Axis helps you define your project goals for your custom application so you don’t go off the rails.

5 best practices for developing custom software

1. Define your current process and future needs.
To make anything, including custom application software, it’s vital to define your current process, your expectations and your measurement of success. Defining these things is so crucial to the well being of the project management process that ways like Six Sigma “Define” its own phase.
Make sure you know the following:
What the current process is. Don’t assume; ask experts who take care of it on a day to day basis. Why changes are desired. Don’t just think something will work better. Test the theory, get feedback from all levels. What the desired state is. Draw out workflows and other processes that the custom application software is meant to support.
2. Choose US Axis we are the right people for the work.
Custom software can be developed by the following people:
It’s tempting to say you’ll handle everything in-house to save money. But using your own IT team for this purpose has drawbacks. First, your team already has a lot of work on their plate ; pulling them from daily work can cause slowdowns for the main business. Second, your tech people at work may not be trained or experienced in custom application development.
Outsourcing this process often makes the most sense. You can work with US Axis, we have successfully designed and implemented many custom application software.
3. Make a realistic plan with tangible milestones. Create a road map for the project. Make sure it is realistic; for example it is unreal to create a complex workflow of a shipping system in a week.
Plan for tangible milestones to stay on track. There are many stages of the development that can be finished at a certain time and budget. Review the work at each schedule milestone to understand if you need to make changes to your planned timeline to stay in budget.
4. Conduct appropriate testing.
Before you implement the new application software across your whole business, test it. Testing usually occurs on two levels:
Technical testing is conducted by the developers and IT professionals. It tests that the foundation is laid correctly and is working. User testing is conducted by business users. It tests that the custom application software works as expected.
5. Document the entire process.
Documentation is key for all stages of development. You know you have to define what you have and what you want. Your project plan documents who is in charge of each phase of the project, and sets dates and expectations.
Also include the below:
A test plan and checklist to ensure the custom application software is fully vetted.
A statement of scope to ensure you don’t end up trying to solve too many problems with the software.
An implementation plan that defines when and who will start using the custom application software.
A training plan and detailed user documentation so that people aren’t left confused or frustrated and with questions when you make the new resource available.
Custom application software development allows use technology to solve specific problems for your entity. When you know how to figure out whether custom application solutions are right for you and how to implement them, you can support growth and success. US Axis will assist you all the way to make sure the custom application process is headache free and easy as can be.
