Bespoke Software
Off-the-shelf software packages are great - we use them oursleves - but there comes a point where they are more of a hindrance than a benefit to a business.
There comes a stage with off-the-shelf software where you have to bend your business so much to meet the requirements of the software that it becomes a liability
As users find that the software won't do what they want they find their own solution - spreadsheet chaos sets in.

You can be fairly certain that the competition are using the same off-the-shelf package so you can gain no competitive advantage at all from your software.
A bespoke software application, custom written to meet you specific requirements, makes running a business easier, more efficient and removes the frustrations and restrictions associated with off-the-shelf software.
