7 Signs You Should Consider Custom Software

The best strategy isn’t finding the right box to put yourself into, it’s building the box around your needs.

We’ve seen it all. Incomplete systems, missed deadlines, communication frustrations, the list goes on. Business management software is still a relatively new field with a lot of options. Which software is the best for your business? There is no right answer.

Do any of these sound familiar? If the answer is yes, consider customizing your software.

You don’t know where your work is.

You can see the words in your head, but can’t find them on your computer. Stop searching through endless emails, comments, chats, and texts. Localize your communication, projects, and tasks all in one place.

You’re missing deadlines.

Can’t remember a deadline? Unsure of the scope? Once you start missing deadlines due to organization, it’s time to reassess your situation.

You know you have something to do, but can’t remember what it is.

Is your to-do list written on a Post-It? Don’t rely on scraps of paper to keep you organized. Make sure your to-do list is integrated with the rest of your system.

You are spending a lot of money on multiple systems.

Fifty dollars here, twenty dollars there…subscription fees can add up. When was the last time you tallied all of your monthly software costs? Chances are, you are probably paying for multiple systems that still don’t give you everything you need.

You don’t know what your systems are for.

Did you buy a system for a different department just because they requested it? Do you know what all of your software systems do? If you are using multiple systems, there is a chance that you may not be optimizing all of the features.

You feel like you’re working against your system, not with it.

Do you have special loopholes that you use just to make your system work the way you want it to? Stop working backwards and customize your software.

You are spending more time trying to figure out what you need to do, instead of working.

Do you spend the first few hours of your day planning out your to-do list? Imagine having your to-do list updated and ready to go right when you get in the office.
