Custom vs. off-the-shelf software
When automating business processes, companies face the dilemma of building their own or buying an off-the-shelf solution. Typically the decision depends on the company's short-term or long-term goals for growth.
Off-the-shelf software is a ready-made product produced for the mass market. It has a lower front-up cost, contains many features, and usually includes free support. Pre-designed products are made for a wide range of customers, while custom software meets all of your requirements and specific needs.
If you have a larger customer base, your feature requests may be ignored by off-the shelf software. This forces you to adapt your business processes to fit the software, potentially costing more in the long run.
