Benefits of bespoke software development

  • Customised to meet your needs
    A bespoke solution is tailored to exactly meet your needs, everything you require is agreed up front and included in the development so you get just what you need.
  • Increase efficiency
    Using a solution that was designed to meet your precise needs means processes can be completed in one place saving time, reducing errors and working more effectively.
  • Improved scalability
    A bespoke solution can be developed with the future needs of your business in mind or enhanced as your business grows and changes to continually meet your unique needs.
  • Gain competitive advantage
    Whether it is by giving you a technological advance, or by offering customers something they cannot get anywhere else, a bespoke solution can help you stand out against your competition, increasing sales and driving retention.
  • Eliminate dependency on old technology
    Many businesses find themselves reliant on legacy software to manage increasingly complex tasks. A bespoke solution can be built on the latest technology and kept up-to-date to suit your needs.
  • Build resalable intellectual property
    When you build your own solution, you are generating intellectual property (IP) which can be a valuable asset.
  • HMRC research and development tax credits
    When you build your own solution then you are likely to be entitled to claim back a significant percentage of the total cost via the HMRC R&D Tax Credit Scheme.

Our approach

KLOC understands the concerns of businesses as they choose a partner to build a bespoke solution for them, and we aim to eliminate risks and build confidence right through the process.

We involve you in all phases of the project and sign off each stage to make sure that you are completely happy with the final outcome. We follow six steps on all our bespoke projects to ensure we deliver what is needed and that budgets and timescales are met.

1Discover

We start by working closely with customers on a discovery exercise to understand all aspects of their requirements. This ensures we both know exactly what is needed and when it has to be delivered. During this process we will document use cases and user stories and produce workflow diagrams.

2Plan

Once we have the requirements in sufficient detail, we design an optimal solution that will satisfy this and deliver the most value for the business. During this phase we will produce screen maps, wireframes and other diagrams that that will help you to understand how the solution will look and behave. The designs give us the detail we need to define the effort and costs to build the solution.

3Create

Once the costs and delivery plan are agreed, we commence the build phase with a series of sprints, each of which delivers some aspect of the solution. We schedule weekly progress meetings and make the new software available to view throughout the development so that you can see it grow. Once the solution has been completed and signed off, we go through full acceptance testing procedures with the client.

4Launch

We understand that going live with a new solution can be stressful and nerve-wracking. We always work closely with our customers to launch the solution together, with our full support through the transition to ensure it happens as smoothly as possible.

5Support

The KLOC experience doesn’t end when the software goes live, we offer on-going support and maintenance to ensure continued satisfaction. We provide maintenance contracts with SLA’s for response time and prioritisation of issues or we can work from task to task as needed.

6Evolve

We know that business needs change over time, so we remain on hand to help with the evolution of the software we develop. If new features or capabilities are needed, KLOC will be there to assist.

Bespoke software can help you to reduce risk, increase capacity and improve competitive advantage, all while perfectly meeting the unique needs of your business.

When it comes to bespoke software design, the possibilities are endless, so whether you have a clearly defined objective or are considering your options, contact us today to discuss your requirements.
