custom software development

Sooner or later, every business encounters a situation where third-party help is a necessary step for the development process. There is no exception to custom software development. For instance, the more business grows, the more tasks it needs to deal with, so delegating particular projects to another company that can develop custom software for you will allow focusing on more specific tasks where your expertise is more than needed. On the other hand, the small companies or start-ups may also require some assistance with custom software development since it’s highly likely that at this stage the team lacks specialists or even doesn’t have anyone who can work on a particular problem.

So Why Do You Need Custom Software Development?

If you have no ideas for the question “what is custom software development”, then here's a clue: it’s a full-cycle development process of a software product based on a specific set of rules, specifications, requirements defined by a customer. In other words, the digital product is tailored for a certain case. 

Speaking about the benefits of custom software product development, there are lots of them. But here are the main ones.

  1. The off-the-shelf is a good option for quick and temporary solutions, while tailored ones ideally match your requirements that make it able to perform for a long time.
  2. The well-planned and in-detailed structured project in advance is fundamental for its proper work that doesn’t require fixes so do unforeseen expenses. Thus, answering the question “how much does custom software development cost” entails the obvious answer “fair enough”.
  3. Nowadays, vulnerability is the biggest challenge to solve in the digital world. Believe it or not, but mass-market software products are the most vulnerable ones. Meanwhile, the specially developed products usually come with the highest level of protection against hacking.
  4. Adjustability is the next criterium that makes tailored software a more justified decision since it can be extended whenever the customer wants.
  5. Compatibility with other tools that are often used is also possible. This fact also prevents unforeseen expenses for integrating with other third-party services.

At the same time, the most important thing that is not on the list but still worth to be mentioned is that outsourcing a team of dedicated specialists saves tons of time that is really valuable.

Is Outsourcing a Good Option?

For sure, outsourcing may seem quite a frightening process, especially for the first time. But finding the perfect outsourcing custom software development company once will make you realize that there’s nothing to worry about.

  1. The cost of custom software development for outsourcing teams depends on the area they are in, but, typically, outsourcing custom software development prices are lower than for the same services in the local area. 
  2. The large pool of specialists that can cover certain tasks to make the project done perfectly at each stage of development.
  3. The velocity of product development is pretty fast to meet the deadlines thanks to a large number of developers.
  4. No need to waste time recruiting new employees. In addition, there won’t be any problems with finding other tasks or dismissing specialists after the project is released.

So, basically, the custom software development agency is an ideal solution for a business or enterprise which is not in the IT industry but requires quick assistance with software product development. Besides, such a team may come in handy even if your business is in the Informational Technology industry but requires temporary additional manpower who can cover urgent tasks.

Still, there may be some risks in hiring an unknown team of developers. Here are some recommendations that may help avoid some bad results.

  1. Learn more about the company that is going to create your project. Check their case studies, whether you like their website and you can find reviews on them on the Internet. 
  2. Try to describe your idea to the outsource team in detail, answer the question “what problem does this software solve”, and “how the problem can be solved with this software solution”.
  3. Don’t underestimate the project’s complexity: set a realistic deadline and define certain tasks to do within the given timeline. Discuss this deadline with the team.
  4. Don’t hesitate to ask who will work on your project and who you will communicate with during this period of time.
  5. Discuss the budget limits with the team.
  6. Ask the team to notify you about the project’s progress.
  7. It’s highly likely that there will be some time difference with an outsource team, so give them some time to respond to you.

Each of the mentioned-above recommendations may lead to dealing some teams out of the potential custom software development company list. However, while only a few will be left, it’s highly likely that one of them will provide you with the best custom software application development experience ever.

What Steps Does The Custom Software Development Consist of?

If you firmly decide that you’ll outsource a custom software development team, then you may be interested in the whole creating process. Here is a rough plan of what is usually done in order to deliver the project.

  1. Task analysis usually consists of a few steps: receiving the description of the project (it may include UI/UX mock-ups or outsourcing team may create custom software design for you); consulting regarding some milestones; negotiating with a customer; evaluating the project’s cost and time to make it.
  2. Technical tasks are usually written in detail by a custom software development firm once all the conditions are agreed upon, but it’s done right before the development process is started.
  3. The custom-designed software development process is the next stage. This stage also involves notifying customers about the progress, then demonstrating the alpha version, improvement of some features, and final testing.

This pattern is applicable to any custom software development service provider. Otherwise, just the worst or fraud companies can skip these mentioned steps, so once you think something is going wrong, it’s better to quit before it’s too late.
