Your bespoke software needs

We have a range of options to ensure that software development is not as costly as you think.  Once you have chosen the route that suits your business the best, we will document the details of these in a “System Specification” document.  This will then be broken down into a series of steps that our programming team can work with.  These steps are added into our Development Support System, Case Centre Pro, which all clients have access to.  This enables you to see that we have not missed anything, and you can see at a glance how your project is progressing on a regular basis.  It also allows you to see our detailed testing plans, and check your software is working long before it is delivered.

Option 1 – Rent Our Off The Shelf Software

The fastest route to solving a business problem in software, and also the least expensive, as it takes something we have already created “off the shelf” and implementing it for your business.  We would then rent you the software running on our servers as a cloud based SaaS (Software as a Service) for a very modest monthly charge with no setup costs.  Most small businesses choose this route.

Option 2 – Modular Bespoke Software

Where we write cross platform bespoke code for you, using free modular sub-components that we have already written on existing projects elsewhere.  Mark Andrew Smith Limited retains the rights of any code we write for you so that we can make these into modules for later reuse.  This is where the modular components come from.  Our development costs are shared on an equal basis between you the client and Mark Andrew Smith Limited, ie a 50:50 cost basis on only the new modules we write which significantly reduces your development costs.  Most medium sized business or niche businesses choose this route.

Option 3 – Totally Bespoke Software

Where we write cross platform or web bespoke software for your business, tailored specifically to your needs.  You own and retain the code.  No code is shared from other projects, so your are safe in knowledge that your competitors do not have similar code.  This also means we are unable to share the costs elsewhere, and alas, is the most expensive and traditional software development route as non of the development costs can be shared.  Fully bespoke can also take the longest to test, complete and deliver.  This route is most suitable for larger corporate with a defined business development budget.
