No two businesses are the same – so why should your software be the same as your competitors?
When it comes to making a business successful, there’s no simple answer or rule book to follow that guarantees success. If there were, we’d all rush out to the shops, buy the book, and all be happily running highly successful businesses by following a few simple instructions. In reality, there is no ‘establish your own multi-million-pound business’ book on the shelves, because there is no guarantee that an approach that brings big success for one business will deliver the same results for another.
Businesses become a success mainly because the people running them see the fine detail of their operations, and they finely tune how they operate to work at maximum efficiency and profitability at all times. So, in the modern age where computer software systems are so central to business operations (for many companies software and information will be the heart of all they do), why do so many think a generic package will be suitable to their needs?
Have you as a business considered whether your software is best suited for the type of work you do? Is it relevant to how your workforce operates and accesses it, does it produce analytics and data you can make good use of, and does it ensure efficiency across the company? If no, why not?
At StyleTech Solutions, we pride ourselves on developing bespoke software systems for each and every client that comes to us for our expertise, whether that be on a one-off basis for a new system, or as an ongoing extension to a company’s IT department. We know that off-the-shelve packages, whilst often a convenient option as they include all the basic software required to do a job with minimum fuss and disruption, are often not the answer.
Do they work? Yes, they do. Do they add true value, bring about extra efficiency and perhaps even help to identify new opportunities? The answer is often no. Our team focus on understanding a business and what the objectives of using new software are. They are built to each individual clients’ needs, across a wide variety of technologies and platforms, and they are unique to that particular business.
By knowing a customer, and how they want software to fit into their business, we can tailor a system that will bring big benefits, be it something as simple as making systems accessible via mobile and tablets through to making it easier for information to be updated and shared across a business and between key individuals. The key is making your software work as you want it to, managing and presenting your key information and data in a way which makes it easy for you to digest, understand, and make full use of.
If your system is simply holding your data, but not making it work for you, it isn’t bringing extra value to your business, and you are perhaps missing opportunities to progress that perhaps you never knew existed.
