Technical Services – Software Development

Off-the-shelf software often fails to meet all of a company's business needs. As a result, the company is faced with a choice:

  • Alter practices and procedures to conform to the business paradigm supported by the software – This option may be advisable if off-the-shelf software meets most of the company's business needs and will require only minor adjustments to business practices and procedures.
  • Build a custom system tailored to meet the company's requirements – This option may be advisable if off-the-shelf software fails to meet critical business needs and will require significant adjustments to business practices and procedures.
