The Age of Custom Software Development

The Age of Custom Software Development

In 2019, it’s no longer the time of putting pen to paper to solve problems. Sure, sketching and note taking can be effective, but the end result is almost always digital. Plus, your notebook just can’t provide the insight and analytics that technology can. That’s why software development has sky-rocketed in recent years.


What Software Should I Utilize?

There are thousands of off-the-shelf products you can utilize for invoicing, record keeping, analytics, and so on. In some cases, a pre-built application could do the trick. However, oftentimes these solutions are rigid and generic meaning your options for customization are limited.

What exactly does your business need? Chances are, you need something custom created specifically with your needs in mind. Also, custom software is scalable, so it will give your organization the capabilities to keep growing without needing to reinvent the wheel.


Custom Software Development

Those are a few reasons why we suggest custom software development solutions. Here at Sierra, we have an in-house development team that can take your project from ideation to launch within a budget and time-frame that works for you.

There’s no limit to what we can build for your organization, but below are some frequently utilized frameworks:

  • Custom Applications – Software solutions that can improve workflow, productivity, and reporting throughout your organization with an endless list of customization options
  • Mobile Apps – The same as a custom applications but built specifically for smaller screens and mobile use.
  • Database Systems – Software systems created to effectively collect, store, and aggregate data to be used throughout your organization to make informed business decisions, increase productivity, and improve sales and marketing efforts.
  • Middleware – Software that resolves inconsistencies and increases performance by acting as a bridge between operating systems, databases, and applications.


How Much Is This Going to Cost Me?

We want to be completely transparent with you. A good, long-lasting custom software solution isn’t (and shouldn’t be) super cheap. In fact, we created an infographic comparing your options for software development service providers. Check it out here.

Even providers that give you a low cost upfront are likely to “run into issues” down the road where extra charges will incur. Our team has received so many customers coming to us with a half-done or barely functioning software solution because the developer or firm initially provided them with the best pricing. You truly get what you pay for with software development. Not to mention, a high-functioning software solution can help you save AND earn money in the long run.

With that said, we pride ourselves on having some of the most aggressive and reasonable pricing in the local IT industry. So, if you’re looking for custom software to keep your organization competitive in the digital age, the Sierra team wants to help. We offer a free, no-obligation consultation where you can chat with our developers and let us know your specific wants and needs. They’ll give you advice and feedback, and if you’re still on-board, we can start working on a plan of action!
