What is custom service development
Developing software or an application that meets specific business requirements is necessary for survival in today’s competitive era. Custom Software Development is the process of conceptualizing, designing, building and deploying software for a specific individual or a group of individuals within an organization or as a third-party arrangement.
Custom software is built to address specific users’ needs and is considered more efficient than commercial off-the-shelf software (COTS). Since COTS targets a broader set of requirements, it is ideal for a wider audience. Off-the-shelf software is promoted and marketed so that different businesses can embed them in their day-to-day business applications. One of the best examples of Off-the-Shelf solutions is Microsoft Office, as it can meet a wider audience’s generalized needs at the global level.
But every business need cannot be generalized. Business processes and particular teams do have a specific set of needs that demand specialized solutions. This is where custom software development finds its application. For example, course-module portals for students or industry-specific e-commerce software for the streamlined shopping experience are custom software suites.
