If you see your business growing in the next few years then a custom software solution is perfect for your startup. With your custom software, you can scale up as need be. You won’t be tied to out-of-the-box software packages that limit the number of users or scope.
With out-of-the-box software, you’re going to be dependent on the company that developed the software. A crucial update may take weeks if not months to come through. Your custom software means you’ll be able to update quicker and easier.
By having your own software, you’ll be able to integrate it with tools you’re already using. If you decide to invest in different tools in the future, your developers can work on integrating those tools as well.
While the initial cost with custom software is higher upfront, you’re going to be saving money in the long run. You won’t have to worry about subscription prices or other hidden fees that may hurt your bottom line.
