What Fortune 500 Companies Can Gain From Custom Software Development

Read Time: 3 minutes

Fortune 500 companies vary tremendously in terms of their operations and industry, but they share some commonalities that make these companies especially well-suited to custom enterprise software development. So what do Fortune 500 companies stand to gain from a custom software development project? Well, in short, quite a bit!

Custom Enterprise Software to Meet Your Company’s Unique Needs

Each company is unique in terms of its software needs and workflows, meaning that out-of-the-box solutions are rarely successful in the long term.

When you work with a custom software developer like Dallas-based 7T, you’ll have the ability to craft a software platform that meets all of your needs — not just some of them. And your software won’t be weighed down with unnecessary features that you’ll never use. You can work with an enterprise software developer to build an interface that has all of the necessary features, functionalities, while also supporting future growth and business evolution.

In fact, when you work with an experienced enterprise software development company, you’ll have the ability to share your plans for the future. This empowers your developers to plan a build that meets your needs today and your needs several years down the road. When the future is considered at the beginning of the process, you’ll find that development speed and cost is reduced — sometimes, significantly — since your developers can build in a way that allows for easy expansion and optimal scalability.

Custom Enterprise Software to Centralize Operations

It’s commonplace for companies to use a smattering of different software platforms to perform a variety of different tasks, from inventory management, to task and project management, messaging and communications, bookkeeping and beyond. New stand-alone software platforms tend to be added into the mix over time, resulting in multiple interfaces that often feature limited (if any) integration with the other platforms that the business is utilizing. Humans are left to fill the “gaps” between software platforms, which opens the door to inefficiencies and even errors.

A new, custom enterprise software platform can be designed to encompass the many facets of a Fortune 500 company’s operations. And by centralizing all of your mission-critical features and functionalities, you’ll enjoy greater productivity, with fewer errors or mishaps along the way.

Of course, there are some third-party platforms that cannot (or should not) be replaced. For these essential third-party platforms with an available API, your developers can work to achieve full integration with your ERP / enterprise platform.

Improved Mobility With Custom Enterprise Apps

Fortune 500 companies can often benefit from one or more mobile apps, which can serve as an extension of a primary enterprise software platform. For example, a company that manufactures and distributes a product, it may be wise to create a partner enterprise app as an extension of the ERP platform. This mobile app may be used by warehouse staff, drivers working as part of the company’s distribution chain, or by sales representatives who are frequently on the road.

It’s also possible to build a B2B app, such as a mobile app that’s used by retailers and others who purchase the company’s products. These parties use the app to place an order and pay; the data is then sent to the ERP platform for fulfillment.
