What does Custom software mean?
Custom Software, sometimes called bespoke or tailored software, is software developed for one particular purpose, normally for one particular user. That’s not to say custom software, once developed, cannot find a broader use.
Every business is different: the market in which it operates, its customers, and above all, its product, makes it unique. A company’s processes are owned by it, and are streamlined for efficiency to best aid that company. It makes sense to imagine that a company’s software requirements also will be unique. This is where custom software comes in.
Many companies will require a piece of software for payroll, a piece of software for scheduling, emailing, documentation, and so it goes on. These packages are available as off-the-shelf (or COTS) software, and can be customized to a certain extent to fit the individual needs of the business, sometime easily, sometimes with help from the supplier or a third party.
Where those off-the-shelf-solutions don’t perform all the functions the business needs, a plug-in can be purchased. This is the simplest form of custom software. Many plugins are available for all kinds of software applications, from email to internet browsing and other business software. Where a plug-in isn’t available, software guru can create one for you.
How can software guru help?
Sometimes stand-alone custom software is needed, to join two or more COTS packages together, via data links, or to support a particular task.
