The most useful and profitable custom software solutions are those that solve a challenge within your business or organization. In fact, the Dallas custom software development team at 7T uses a “business first” approach to all of our digital transformation solutions, as we get acquainted with the company’s operations, workflows, pain points and challenges.
How Do You Design Custom Software for Common Business Problems?
The first step to building a useful enterprise software solution is to articulate the precise challenge or problem that you’re facing as a business. Usually, this challenge involves a less-than-efficient process. The key is to identify the steps of the current process and then determine how a more efficient solution might look. Then, your software team can work with you to identify how you can leverage technology to augment, simplify or better facilitate the process in question.
Through our Foundation Program, 7T works with established companies and startups alike to flesh out a detailed Software Requirements Document (SRD), which serves as the foundation and roadmap for your development project.
Custom Software to Facilitate Better Systems Integration
Some of the most common business challenges entail a lack of integration amongst multiple disparate software systems and third-party platforms. So you might be exchanging messages and files using Slack, while orders are placed through your website. Meanwhile, inventory acquisition, inventory management, sales and fulfillment processes are performed using three additional stand-alone software systems.
These conditions can create a scenario where you’re dropping the ball due to a lack of effective integration between these different systems. An enterprise software solution can combine all of the necessary functionalities and features into a single customized platform that features full integration.
Enterprise Software to Automate Processes
Another common challenge involves arduous or inefficient processes that can be streamlined and automated using today’s most innovative technologies. Machine learning and artificial intelligence can even take the place of humans in many cases, thereby freeing staff to perform more complex tasks. A custom software development company like 7T can build an enterprise software platform that even “learns” and gets “smarter” as time passes and more data is collected.
Creating Analytics Engines to Derive Key Business Insights
Data management is also a common business challenge, as many companies will collect large volumes of data, yet they fail to use that data in a way that brings a maximum benefit to the organization. For instance, an e-commerce platform generates large volumes of data that can be analyzed to derive key insights, such as revealing the best day and time to post new products or determining the most effective marketing strategies.
To make the most of your company’s data, a development company can build a customized analytics engine to process your data, which is then interpreted and reported in the ways that are relevant to your business.
