Is Custom Software Right For You?

If you can answer ‘Yes’ to any of the following, it is time to invest in custom application software:

  1. Do you have business needs that cannot be answered with a commercially-available product?

  2. Do you need features other software products don’t offer?

  3. Have tried to force off-the-shelf software to fit your business needs outweigh only to realize the complications of integrating far outweigh the advantages?

Yep, I Need Custom Software!

Developed for your needs and no one else.

In custom software development, Big Fat Designs will work closely together with your team to decide what the planned software’s purpose is, who its intended users are, and what the exact business requirements are that the program should meet.

Decision-making factors include:

  • Do you have specialized information security and privacy concerns?
  • How much data is involved, and how complex is it?
  • What existing commercial software products are in use? Are they rigid and lack scalability?
  • What are your budgetary and financial constraints?

The benefits will be clear.

Your investment in custom software development should:

Cost vs Profits
  • Connect your employees, customers and/or partners.
  • Manage your key processes and clear bottlenecks.
  • Leverage your business’s assets and products.
  • Reduce cost, reduce time needed to complete tasks, while increasing overall efficiency.
  • Help your business discover – and handle – new opportunities for revenue and growth.

Solving Business Problems with Custom Application Development Services

Custom applications need to effectively resolve a business challenge. We always start with developing a clear understanding of the business problem you’re solving. We ask and identify: Who will use the app? How will it be used? What is the main problem we are addressing? Why won’t a commercial solution work?

Our custom applications developers work through a consistent methodology to refine each aspect of the application:
