Bespoke Software For Business
Scoped Solutions are an independant UK software development company providing software development services in and around Lancashire and the wider North West.
If your business is being held back by outdated or inflexible systems or you are suffocating under unwieldy spreadsheets then a bespoke software (sometimes called custom software or tailored software) solution could be the answer.
Bespoke software applications can enable your business to move forward and empower your staff to achieve more, in less time with fewer mistakes.
With over a hundred satisfied customers already benefitting from our bespoke software expertise we have the experience and skills to design, develop, deliver and maintain your business software.
No matter how small or large the project is you can be assured it will be approached with the utmost professionalism and enthusiasm. We are proud to be a 100% UK company and we will never outsource our work offshore - you will always have direct access to the developers working on your project.
In a Nutshell
Your business may be incurring obvious and not-so-obvious costs every day by continuing to work around inflexible and outdated systems.
We can help you unlock business potential, maximise staff time, improve efficiency and lower your operating costs by developing easy to use, insightful business applications tailored to the needs of your business.
How Much Will It Cost Me?
One of the myths of the business software world is that off-the-shelf software is cheaper than having bespoke software custom built to match the needs of a particular business - and you would expect this to be the case, but very often it isn’t.
Development costs have vastly reduced over the last five years, meanwhile the well known CRM solution providers have not responded in kind.
The most popular off-the-shelf 'paid' CRM out there (by some margin) is Salesforce. So that’s what we’ll use for comparison. And we’ll consider a typical small business with ten users.
Salesforce is an established cloud CRM system, so it ought to be cheap right? Indeed the 'grab your attention' price almost qualifies as cheap. But beware! As soon as you need more than five users your wallet’s in trouble!
You see, if your business has more than five users you can’t use their entry level CRM, you have to stump up for the Lightning Professional version, which is three times more expensive.
What’s worse is that you would expect a hosted cloud solution to be billed monthly – not so with Salesforce, you have to pay annually, in advance, so your cash flow takes a real pounding.
“Salesforce Lightning” (the cheapest option for more than five users) is £60 per month, per user, billed annually.
By comparison, to build a totally bespoke CRM with all the functions you need, and none of the ones you don't need, using your own terminology and following your processes we would typically charge £6500. Our ongoing licence cost is £150 per month, paid monthly, covering up to 50 users.
So, let's see how the costs stack up Bespoke vs Salesforce
As you can see the bespoke option gives a saving of more than £20,000 so if you need a software system it makes financial sense to choose Bespoke!
