I’ve been running into more and more organizations that are running into app fatigue. Their employees, vendors and clients are finding themselves engulfed in an array of different apps to get a number of tasks completed that would seemingly be tied to one purpose. The frustration of data reentry, multiple logins and varying user interfaces makes some wonder if paperwork is really all that bad. For organizations running into these problems it may be time to consider custom application development.
The beauty of custom apps for business software solutions is that the software conforms to the business rather than the business conforming to the software. By leveraging cloud technology and Big Data, an organization can begin to piece together their own solutions that keep the user interface consistant and under one login. The tasks become centric to how they do business and how they need data to correspond across different use cases.
The first impression is the custom business software is more expensive than out of the box solutions. This may not be the case as companies begin to increase in size and especially as they begin to have more users needing access to their various systems. We recommend consulting with an expert in the field to find out if custom app development makes sense.
