Of-the-shelf solutions are designed on the principle of “average good”, because they are created to suit everybody. It sounds like an absolute advantage. But here comes a disadvantage: these solutions require a customization to meet the specific needs of the client.
That is why you are frequently asking specialists to “add that little thing” and “buy that little one”, so the system could do all the additional tasks, which are necessary for work.
There is even more energy consuming option: to adapt your own business processes to a traditional product. But in this case you change business to suit the product, and not vice versa.
It often turns out, that it is easier and simpler to order a new product development, than trying to adapt the existing one to suit your needs, or yourself to suit the product. As a result, you get an exclusive solution, that addresses all the specific needs of your particular business.
We always keep in mind, that you may have different preferences, goals and available finances; BTLab offers plenty of options for custom software development on different programming and hardware platforms (starting from lightweight freeware and finishing with completely customized large systems).
