Every business is unique. Is there a reason why your software isn’t? At Orases, our custom software development team has years of experience designing and developing unique and innovative custom software using a streamlined, repeatable process.
In over 20 years of business, we’ve developed custom software for well over 950 clients across varying industries throughout the United States. In order to thrive in today’s market, businesses must be able to innovate quickly and more efficiently than their competition. There are a plethora of ways a business can fail — and thus, the limitations of their software should not be one of them.
What Is Custom Software
Custom software development is the process of designing, developing, deploying and maintaining software for a specific user or a group of users within an organization or as a third-party arrangement.
Custom software is designed and created to address users’ specific needs and is considered to be more effective than commercial off-the-shelf software (COTS), which targets an expansive set of requirements. Oftentimes, businesses will turn to an off-the-shelf software solution as it is commercially promoted and marketed as a way to meet the generalized needs of businesses at a global level.
While there are a variety of off-the-shelf software options available, most organization’s needs cannot be generalized and require specific capabilities that COTS can’t provide. The limitations of off-the-shelf software often result in more costs and time spent attempting to add required features and functionality. Thus, it is advised to receive a custom solution that can provide for longevity and a higher return on investment.

Improved Efficiency & Scalability
Custom software is developed to support business processes both efficiently and effectively, and is designed to scale with the ever-changing needs and requirements of a growing organization.
In turn, organizations are able to continue using and updating their custom software for many years, unlike the restrictions organizations often face with off-the-shelf software solutions.
A Unique & Innovative Solution
Having a personalized software product helps ensure that the software contains all of the features and functionalities that your organization needs to streamline business processes.
Software developers can create software that aligns with business goals and provides organizations with ample opportunity to grow.
Lower Integration Costs
Organizations are often presented with the question of whether commercial software will work with their existing legacy applications. The most important question isn’t whether off-the-shelf software can be integrated with 3rd party or legacy applications, but how much the integration of applications will inevitably cost.
In most cases, off-the-shelf software has the capability to integrate with various applications and platforms. However, the overall costs associated with the integration and maintenance far exceed the upfront costs associated with custom software developed with the functionality and flexibility to integrate with current and future applications and platforms.
Increased Return On Investments
Although custom software development typically costs more upfront compared to off-the-shelf software, businesses receive more in return for their dollar. With custom software development, there is no need to purchase additional hardware, acquire licenses, or pay for features that employees are likely never going to use.
In return for an initial investment, businesses that choose custom software development have the opportunity to create personalized software from scratch. By working with Orases, your company’s software will be able to gain an advantage over your competition with an unparalleled custom software solution.
