Software Development: “Why doesn’t it do X, Y & Z?”
You will find that this is something refrained right across the business community when it comes to buying software over the counter. Unlike buying a new car where you can decide upon the optional extras you want at the showroom, software for business use can sometimes amount to an all-or-nothing scenario.
At York Apps we are often asked to assist when customers cannot find that over the counter solution to a unique problem. Our bespoke software packages are tailored specifically to the needs of your business on a very simple premise: What do you need it to do and what would you like it to do?
As you may have already discovered, be you a sole trader, a budding entrepreneur, a small to medium sized business (SME) or a large corporation, it is not always possible to find the software on the market that does exactly what you need without having to purchase modules and additional functionality you might never use. On the high street buying such software can be a painfully expensive procedure where you have to buy the whole thing (including the elements you will never use) in order to gain access to the elements you will use.
Why York Apps Software Development?
At York Apps we undertake each project as if it is the first time we have done so and take the time to discuss with you the nature of your business, how your business model is structured and what ideally you would like the bespoke software to do. We also look at the hardware you use with a view to making both software and hardware compatible, therefore cutting out the need to purchase new and expensive hardware as you might have to in order to operate over-the-counter packages.
Quite simply you will pay for what you get and what you get is best described by the old adage – WYSIWYG! What you see is what you get. And what you get is precisely what you need and ask for. Bells and whistles are all very well and good and may give an aesthetically pleasing slant to your package but there’s no point in it looking good if it can’t fulfill your needs. Our development team will look to achieve both.
Bespoke software development may sound like a frightening prospect but with 14+ years of experience behind us and a deep knowledge of the platforms available on the market today (along with an understanding of what is to come) we will take your idea and make it a reality. We deal with Windows-based platforms as well as iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Linux.
Here are just a few of the ways in which our bespoke software development team can help your business.
Integrating new and old packages across a variety of platforms with a view to making them accessible across the majority of today’s smartphone and tablet-based technology.
- Creating new ways in which to report on how your business operates daily, weekly, monthly and bi-monthly based on how your business invoices its customers.
- Producing unique reporting procedures that allow for user-specific queries as opposed to generalised reporting that may miss out on important information. (Information specific to your enterprise)
- Applying specific rules on how mobile apps run in conjunction with server-based databases.
- Managing the storage of information in a way that makes its capture and housekeeping simpler and more user friendly.
- Bringing uniformity to the overall use of a bespoke software package so that the training (or retraining) of staff is a less daunting and time-consuming proposition.
The afore listed is just a selection of ways in which York Apps can help with the inception, creation and implementation of a bespoke software package that will increase the productivity of your business whilst reducing the time it takes to deal with customer queries.
