Custom Software: Should You Build or Buy?

The current market offers many different software solutions for every industry and user. But every business will eventually face the question: To build or not to build?

Here are a few things you should consider:

Requirements
The first step is to make a list of all the things you need your software to do. Consider which features are critical, and the ones that would be “nice to have.” Think about who will be using the software, and the ways you expect your business to grow over time.

Budget
One of the biggest considerations for many businesses is the cost of custom software. While an excellent custom software development solution can quickly pay for itself, there’s no doubt that time and budget considerations will be something that most business owners need to think about.

Growth
Think about where your business will be in the next few years. If your competitors are increasingly offering customers and employees cutting-edge solutions, you may need to think about custom software in order to keep up with the pack. But if your five-year plan doesn’t yet have room for custom software, an off-the-shelf solution can still work.
