Custom Vs Off the Shelf Software – The Bespoke Route

As a accomplished web development agency in Perth, we have done a quick comparison to the two common routes here for your easy reference.

What is off-the-shelf and bespoke software?

As the name suggests, off-the-shelf is software that has already been built, usually with a large number of features, and is ready for use right away.

Bespoke (custom-made) software is designed after taking into account the user’s business requirements and often has a smaller set of features that are targeted at the specific needs of the business.

So, Custom or Off the Shelf software – which is best? Our best advice – if you can fit into an off the shelf package for a minimal price and without changing your business process, then go for it. However, if your business is specialized and has unique processes, a bespoke solution will serve you well and return your investment over and over again. It also adds value to your business.
