If they just don’t make the software you need, custom software may be the key.
We’ve been there ourselves. Searching the web and comparing features, trying to find that magic bullet software to fit the need. Some products have a million options and require a computer science degree to use. Others are easy to use but just don’t have the features you need.
Custom software is a way to tailor fit a solution to your business processes, and not the other way around. Check out the steps below to see what it takes to begin.
Make a List of Features
Only you know exactly what you need in a custom-fit piece of software. You’ve worked hard to make your business stand out in the marketplace, and those unique qualities require unique features only you can define.
For example, let’s say you have a business process that involves five stages and five employees. You might make a list of your preferred features like this:
- I need the ability to assign a stage to each one of my employees.
- I need to alert each employee when their portion of the process is ready to start.
- I want to see the status of the entire process as each stage is completed.
