Software that belongs to you allows you to save money
You pay less! Many entrepreneurs think that custom software will not be worth the investment cost. Quite the opposite, because it will last much longer than a standard product. Once the development phase is over, you do not pay any fixed maintenance.
How much does custom software cost?
Choosing to create custom software that you own also means saving money for your business.
Why pay 100% for a software of which you only use 20% of the features?
By using solutions sized precisely for your activity, a custom solution is economically much more interesting.
Because it is designed specifically for you by our engineering office, the tailor-made software only contains features that you really need, thus making it less expensive to maintain.
It’s about achieving the 3 U’s: Useful, Usable & Used. Only an IT tool appreciated by its users is likely to last.
You are the owner, so you no longer have to pay costly annual maintenance to continue using the software without a useful update.
On average, standard software will be maintained and used for 10 to 15 years with maintenance or a license to be renewed each year for around 25% of the initial price.
Making you purchase it 2 to 3 times. A custom software can last for more than 25 years and you decide when you want to upgrade it!
Taking into account the lifespan of the software, a custom solution is the most economical for your business, not to mention the time saved thanks to a tool that better meets your needs.
Additionally, custom solutions allow you to be completely independent, freeing you from any obligation to the development company once the project is finished.
