What is Custom Software?
Custom software is:
Custom Software is a computer program or Web site written specifically for your company, according to your company's way of doing business. The opposite of custom software is off-the-shelf software, also known as pre-packaged or pre-written software. One major difference between custom and non-custom software is that with pre-written software, you do not technically own the software - you are paying for the right to use the software (a license), and the amount of money you pay usually increases with the number of users.
When Custom Software Isn't for You
In some business environments, it is not appropriate to automate every procedure. For instance, if a small bank has built its reputation on the personalized service it offers, it would be counter-productive to make loan decisions based solely on a computer's appraisal. However, such a program could serve as a valuable tool for preliminary evaluations.
Can I afford Custom Software?
If your company can save money and work faster with custom software, the better question is "Can we afford to operate without it for the next five years?"

The Benefits of Custom Software
There are hundreds of programs on the market that can do almost everything you will ever need to do. So why would you need custom software? Because there are so many programs, serving so many generalized purposes that it is almost impossible to find one program that does exactly what you want it to do.
