Does bespoke software cost more than off-the-shelf software?

In the shorter term, bespoke software can cost more than off-the-shelf software. But, your competitive edge can disappear when your competitors use the same software as you.

Investing in bespoke software that’s tailor-fit to your business can create a bigger return on investment. It can also provide your business with an edge that your competitors can’t buy.

Can you develop bespoke mobile apps too?

Absolutely! If you have remote/field-based processes, we would recommend building an app.

Developing a mobile app can bring new insight with features like GPS tracking. You can enhance your processes with new data too. Users can upload images and videos of completed work, PPE, signatures, and more.

You can also integrate your mobile app and bespoke software with existing online platforms. Services like Google Maps, or PayPal (for payments) can help you hit the ground running.

Digitally transform your business to build an edge

You can build a competitive edge and make a return by building your software step-by-step. Bespoke software can target pain points like scalability, productivity, or data insights with custom web or mobile apps.

Online integrations can deliver quick wins

The best way to hit the ground running with a bespoke software project is with online integrations. Online payments, automatic email reminders, or GPS check-ins can deliver instant value.

Want to know more? Try these FAQs.

  • How much does bespoke software development cost?
  • We know it’s important to plan budgets before investing in a new project. As bespoke software comes in all shapes and sizes, we charge a standard daily rate for software development.

    The cost of bespoke software comes from the features, processes, and online services you want to integrate. To give you control over costs, we break each project down into ‘phases’, so you can develop the software step-by-step.

  • Can my new software bring in data from my old system?
  • Of course! We can safely import your data from your old system if you have access to it. In fact, we often develop new software to avoid the pitfalls of an old system. Your old system can be a great resource for understanding how your business works.

  • What makes Codevate different?
  • Since 2013, we've maintained a 100% project completion rate (compared to an industry average of 25%). We utilise both Lean and Agile principles, and all of our staff are full-time and on-site (no outsourcing!)

  • Is bespoke software secure?
  • Secure, quality bespoke software is often built on the shoulders of giants. Compared to some off-the-shelf solutions (like WordPress), we carefully vet the open source libraries and tools we use. This gives your project a solid foundation, focusing on well-maintained code that delivers maximum value.

    We use the latest encryption and infrastructure code to ensure our bespoke software projects keep your data secure.

  • Can my new software support thousands of users?
  • Yes it can. If scalability is a key requirement for your business, you’re in safe hands.

    Scaling to support thousands of users can be a feature in itself. We’ve developed secure horizontally scalable software that supports tens of thousands of users. We’ve also built real-time systems that can scale even higher.

  • Will my project stay confidential?
  • We're always happy to sign non-disclosure agreements and protect your trade secrets as if they were our own.
