Custom software continues to move companies forward into the future. And as the world continues to move more and more towards an all-digital form of life, companies need to stay digitally relevant or fall behind. Seventy-seven percent of Americans, for example, own a smartphone and check their phones 80 times a day. Internet users around the world just passed the 4 billion mark with 3 billion using social media.
Software demand on the rise
Software demands are on the rise as hardware is in decline. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 31% of new STEM jobs will be in software development compared to 11% representing the combined branches of traditional engineering. In fact, technology is moving at such a fast pace, just keeping up is forcing the hand of many businesses to seek custom software solutions to help them compete. Mobile responsiveness, cloud computing, data analysis, and unique processes are more important than ever to stay ahead of the competition.
But beyond today’s needs, most executives want software that allows for growth and innovation. Standing by with old, legacy software is become increasingly frustrating for both business and IT leaders. And for most of these executives, the limitations of legacy software not only pose challenges for innovation but has forced them to change their business processes to accommodate the software.
Grow with custom software
Being a leader means you have a better way of doing business. Your software shouldn’t strip you of your uniqueness. You know how to gather and utilize data, connect with customers, and run efficient business processes. But as businesses become more and more digital, they need to stand out among a crowd of like businesses. Custom software gives you more efficiency and allows for more flexibility and growth. The benefits far outweigh the costs by serving the unique needs of businesses with options to make enhancements and drive innovation.
