If you’ve purchased software off the shelf, you know that, while it may be helpful in a few aspects of your business, it’s far from a perfect solution for your company. But, how could it be? Your business itself is unique, and it should be backed by a software architecture that is tailor made based on use cases that apply strictly to your own business processes. What are the main advantages of implementing custom-built applications?

Modernizing Legacy Applications

As your business grows and time goes by, you may find that your current software architecture feels a bit dated. With constant day-to-day changes, it can be a challenge to always ensure maximum efficiency with software you may have purchased years ago. Luckily, with help from tech consultants like 1Rivet, you can modernize your IT applications to better support your goals and business processes. If your business has used your legacy software for many years, there’s a chance there are some aspects of it that you are still having success with and we can work with you to ensure you can keep those aspects, while updating and replacing areas of deficiency.

Benefit from Cloud Solutions

All of our custom-built application solutions have an emphasis on cloud-readiness. We want to see your business grow and succeed. Thus, we go out of our way to have a plan in place for when your applications start to see an increase in users. As the number of users go up, our solutions can be easily scaled without impacting the existing infrastructure components. Additionally, if your application includes the use of RPA, we are happy to work with you to make adjustments to the robotic processes as your business processes change.

Maximize Innovation

Sometimes it may not be clear to you how your applications could stand to be improved. If you know you want a change but aren’t sure exactly which direction to go, we are happy to collaborate on a solution! We welcome our clients to experiment with a host of emerging technologies with us in order to decipher which of them can provide the most benefit to you specifically. From there, we get to work on tailoring those functionalities to your daily business processes. This is a very cost-effective option that allows businesses to interact with working prototypes in as little as four weeks.
