At Spinbox Media, our root foundations have always been database driven web applications for business.
As the market grows with off-the-shelf applications and software for all industries, why should your company embark down the road of a bespoke Application specifically for your business?
The answer to this is relatively obvious and straight forwards. With all software applications, these have been designed to cover a broad range of disciplines and industries. As much as they maybe feature rich and with a relatively lower price tag, the complexity and limits that are thrown in, result in a lower ROI (Return Of Investment) on your software purchase and limit your business growth.
Customising and expanding such softtware applications are very time consuming and extreemly expensive or in many occasions simply not possible.
Why have a custom database driven application?
Small businesses tend to choose off the shelf main stream applications or software as it fits their business model at the time. However as the company expands, the software unfortunately does not. Established organisations have recognised this shortfall and invest in a bespoke business application that can be upgraded, expanded as their business does. In addition to the benefits in the life-cycle of your application, the application is specific to your needs and business model, allowing operators to perform tasks faster, more accurately and provides a proven increase in productivity and ROI.
So what does it cost?
There is no sugar coating it, bespoke application development for your business does cost more than an off the shelf solution. The cost of course is dependant on your requirements, however the advantages of a custom solution shine above a software purchase. The database driven applications provide amazing benefits such as:
- Remote access: Access your business application from any browser in the world at any time
- Expand & Customise: The customisation elements of your application are limitless
- Rapid Development: With an established agency such as Spinbox, we have libraries of code and RAD tools that allow for accurate and fast development of your business solution
- Data Security: Security over the web is now at higher levels than ever. With encryption, SSL and inherent .NET security, your business data is secure and backed up at all times.
- Centralised Data: With your business data stored on backed-up on dedicated servers, your information being lost or accidentally deleted is a thing of the past. Data replication can be stored on internal servers in real time.
- Easy Upgrades: Upgrading a database driven application is easy. The upgrade is deployed in a single locations (Saas Model) without the need of major re-training and expensive network administrator costs
- Specialist Support: With the development agency responsible for maintenance and support of your business application, you know you are safe hands and can push for the latest function technology
The list can go on, however gives you an insight into what can be achieved and gained.
