Utility in web applications for organizing digital projects or corporate strategic initiatives can be a mixed bag when it comes to functionality. While often useful, it’s just as often that an app will be lacking search features that would have shaved hours off of the work at hand. The good news, though, is that customized app development has evolved into an affordable alternative, and web developers are happy to work with clients to craft products that fits the clients exact criteria. Let’s take a moment and dig deeper into the process to see how Apex Technology’s Charlotte-based web app development team can bring your vision to life and how the new customized software will improve your organization’s performance.
Integrating Your Entire Business into a Single Foundational App
Not only do off-the-shelf solutions often contain unnecessary functionality, but in order to completely fulfill your functional needs, you often have to purchase multiple software products. These products aren’t always cross-compatible. A skilled team of web app developers can assess your existing software infrastructure, determine how to create a single workflow, and integrate all of the necessary functions to execute that workflow into a single interface.
In some cases, it’s fine to maintain separate systems across departments so as to minimize disruption of existing processes. However, it is always useful to be able to gather data into a single datastream. Customized web apps can allow users to receive data from software across the business and, once consolidated, use them to make informed business decisions or organize cross-department initiatives.
No Limitations to Scale and Easily Maintained
Custom web app development provides the benefit of being able to scale functionality along with the scope of your business. If you’re expanding and building new locations or adding a new territory with the potential of onboarding an unknown number of potential clients, you don’t have to worry about artificial limitations such as those that might be present in off-the-shelf software solutions. Your web developer can build the application with growth and expansion in mind from inception of the software, allowing it to grow naturally with your brand.
Similarly, because you have a direct line to the developer, you can quickly make adjustments or patches to the software, for as long as you have a business need for the application. You’re not hindered by the dangers of a vendor going out of business or having to wait for a third-party with whom you have no working relationship to decide to deploy business critical update or patch.
With off-the-shelf third-party software, you don’t have any control over the integrated cybersecurity measures included in the apps’ development. Further, store-bought solutions are often the first targets for hackers to practice their craft. A partnership with a web application developer allows you to customize and adapt your application’s security to be more complex in in order to deter attackers.
