Competitive advantage cannot be purchased off the shelf. You need custom applications to differentiate yourself from your competition.
Custom software development is the process of designing software applications (apps) for a specific group of users within an organization, under a contract.
Here are the most important benefits of choosing Optimax as your custom application development contractor:
You get a custom-tailored application that is designed specifically for your company and meets your business needs. We ensure this by an ongoing dialogue with you, our Client, continuously revising and validating requirements and the mutual understanding of the business process. It is not unusual for businesses to license software from a software vendor and then discover that it is simply not suitable for their business. With Optimax custom applications you will be guaranteed that the software is a great fit for all of your specific requirements.
The applications we build for you are more scalable and adaptable to your changing business needs. We will continue to maintain and enhance the custom applications as your business grows in size and its requirements change. Inexpensive off-the-shelf software is often not suitable for large businesses. On the other hand, enterprise-level software able to support businesses at a large scale is usually very expensive to license. Custom software developed by Optimax meets the needs of your company while allowing your business to grow without being limited by the technology.
Custom software can be rapidly tweaked and unjusted in numerous ways, giving your business a competitive edge. We can also host your custom applications in the cloud, ensuring a very rapid development and maintenance cycle so that your business can adjust to the ever changing business needs with agility and speed.
Custom software is more difficult to hack. The majority of successful hacking attempts performed on business are the result of hackers exploiting known software vulnerabilities in off-the-shelf software. Well-written custom software is a much less attractive target for hackers as it requires much more effort to learn how to breach – effort that doesn't scale beyond one target.
Optimax custom software can fit perfectly within your business ecosystem and is capable of operating with the software packages your business already uses. Multiple off-the-shelf software packages rarely interact with each other perfectly and without errors. We can bring harmony to an otherwise unruly bunch.
Optimax will maintain your custom-developed software for as long as you need us. We have been in business since 1993 and we intend to stick around. Contrast this with off-the-shelf software with which you are at the mercy of a mass-market commercial vendor who has no, or at best tenuous, relationship with your company, can sell their product line to a hostile bidder, or can simply go out of business.
Custom business software helps you save on hardware acquisition costs. Licensing business packages often means purchasing extra hardware to go with it in order to run effectively. With Optimax custom software, we can help you offload your data centers to the cloud and realize significant savings in operational costs.
Custom applications developed by Optimax provide an excellent foundation to build upon for the continued success of your business.
