A custom software developer creates computer software that is bespoke (specifically tailored towards a client’s particular needs), rather than being ‘off the shelf’ software aimed at a mass market. Clients can be businesses or organisations of any kind, large or small. They require software that will help them work to optimum efficiency, and are prepared to invest in custom software to achieve this (rather than simply relying on free to download software on the Internet, or a commercial software package).
A custom software developer can either work as a team member at a software development company, or as a freelancer: a custom software development consultant.
Many custom software developers branch out on their own after years spent working for a software company, in fact. Once they have the necessary experience and skills (as well as an impressive portfolio to show potential clients!), custom software developers enjoy the freedom and control that comes with running their own custom software development business.
A custom software developer, custom software programmer or bespoke software developer can develop custom software that can be used for a multitude of purposes, including:
In the UK, most custom software developers charge £50 an hour for their services; however, it is best to go for a fixed price overall, as this way you avoid the anxiety escalating bills can create (as the weeks pass… as your custom software is being developed…).
Custom software can be a brand-new software solution for you (ranging in complexity from surprisingly simple to ultra-sophisticated!), or as a software developed to enhance your existing software program.
Maybe you are completely happy with your current software, and just want to add new custom software to it as your company has recently expanded? If so, a custom software developer will take your brief, assess your needs, and then come back to you with an estimate/quote.
Most custom software developers will offer you a free ‘no obligation to buy’ estimate, in fact, and will realise that you will prefer a fixed price over being charged an hourly rate.
A simple custom software solution costs around £5,000 in the UK, with programming being added to an existing software solution costing about half that.
A good custom software developer will understand how important having the right software solution is to your business, and will always strive to ensure your custom software application is designed, developed and deployed on-time and on-budget.
Above all, you need a custom software developer who takes the time to really understand your business needs, and will develop custom software for you that helps set you up for prosperity in the long-term, as well as addressing your immediate needs.
