It’s without doubt that the initial price of bespoke software is higher than an off the shelf solution but when considering the cost in the long run, the situation is different. You must look ahead and think about the future and how the cost of the software solution will change and how long it will take for your performance to increase.
It should be thought about like an investment that will be returned. Yes, you’ll pay more in the beginning but it’s reassuring to know that you’ll gain more in the future.
When you buy a tailored solution, you’re buying more than just a product. You’re also getting an IT partner that will work right beside you, upgrading as and when needed to ensure the software is as efficient as possible and to meet all your specific software needs.
If you require a feature to enable you to communicate with customers and upgrade your customer service, you’ll get it. And if you need systems integrated for different departments to increase accessibility and the flow of information, you’ll get this too. So although it may cost more to start with, a bespoke solution will maximise your profits as much as possible.
