When is the best time to engage a software development agency?

Most companies engage software development agencies at either:

a) Solution design/strategy time – when they have an objective to achieve or problem to solve.
b) Development time – when they have a documented scope for the solution, and they just need it developed.

Either is fine, but a good agency will be able to provide you far greater value if they’re involved in the solution design, as they can help good technical decisions be made early and set your project up for success.

How much does custom software development cost?

This depends on how complex your software project is, but typically a new project will start from $20,000+.

Who owns the source code for my custom software?

You should be granted an owned licence to the software, so you’re not beholden to the software developer. We recommend checking your agreement to ensure this is the case before signing on.

What are the advantages of customised software?

Key advantages of developing customised software include:
– Meeting your unique business requirements, and building a competitive advantage
– Optimising efficiency and automation, boosting productivity
– Security – can be more secure to external threats
– Scalable and adaptable as your business evolves
– Builds unique and valuable IP for your business
– Often more cost-effective than SAAS at scale

What are typical custom software projects?

Custom software can include (but it is not limited to):
– Customer facing systems including booking, scheduling systems and quote calculators.
– Internal systems including workflow management systems and job tracking systems.
– Custom reporting and analysis tools
– B2B / B2C marketplaces
– Customised eCommerce solutions
– e-Learning portals
The scope of custom software development is only limited by your imagination, and your budget.

We’d happily recommend 4mation to any business that is looking for a developer to build or maintain their software.
