CUSTOM APP DEVELOPMENT VS OFF-THE-SHELF PRODUCT: HOW TO DECIDE AND WHY?
Whenever you plan to develop a business product or let us say an app for your business, what are the immediate factors that you take into consideration? The time, budget, functionality, return on investment (ROI), user experience (UX) and user interface (UI), and so on.
As you are aware, custom app development is indeed a frantic task as many complications are involved along with your time, effort and monetary resources. Every minute effort counts – which makes it essential that we have a clear understanding of the business requirements and analyze whether the solution will meet these requirements.
No solution designed for one business can be a fit for a second business. Each has varying requirements and depending upon the requirements, solutions vary. So, before you decide whether an off-the-shelf solution or customized solution will be a perfect fit for your business requirements, it is necessary to analyze what you’re expecting the app to do and what is the process it would be following to accomplish to attain the goals.
Once you know what your business requirements are and the steps that you would be following to accomplish it, you could easily think about the options for developing app.
