This can be done through a phased implementation approach, where the new software is integrated incrementally into the existing system. This approach minimizes the risk of disruption and allows for a smooth transition to the new software.
Working with an experienced software development partner can help ensure a smooth transition to custom software and enjoy the many advantages of custom software for their business. The right experts can also provide guidance on the best practices and tools for seamless integration.

Experts suggest that following a structured and well-defined process enables to deliver high-quality software that meets the business requirements and provides long-term value.

Fingent’s approach

Custom Software Development Process

A well-defined software development process starts with consultation and analyzing the underlying business ecosystem. First, understanding the business needs and defining the project scope, goals, and timeline. Gather all the details about what the software must do and document it. Next, create a visual representation of the software and build a working prototype to see and feel the software before it’s fully built.
Followed by development, testing, and deploying the software. Once complete, the software must be administered with ongoing support, bug fixes, and upgrades to ensure the software continues to meet business needs. According to Fingent, following a structured and well-defined process enables to deliver high-quality software that meets the business requirements and provides long-term value.

How custom software development helps manufacturing industry

When Fingent started operations nearly two decades ago, we had the vision of helping organizations solve business challenges using technology. As we have helped numerous clients in the manufacturing as well as other industries, we have seen one thing – there isn’t a one-solution-fits-all software in the world that fits the needs of every organization.


Frequently Asked Questions

Customized software saves your IT expenditure by offering subscription-based pricing and reduces your maintenance costs. Custom application development enhances your operational efficiency, saves your labor and training costs, and offers you the ability to scale with the market needs. A property management portal/application that allows field agents/ brokers to coordinate between buyers and sellers is an example of customized software in real estate.

An example of customized software in the healthcare sector will be an Appointment Management System that enables clinics or hospitals to track patient appointments.
A number of factors weigh into this decision including scalability, existing platforms, client’s existing infrastructure, data types, and so on. Primarily, the decision should be based on your specific business needs and set of features expected out of the application.

For instance, Microsoft .NET is a highly versatile framework that can be used for nearly every solution, while certain demands can be better executed using a PHP/MySQL stack or a specific similar technology. Fingent’s Development Team is well-versed in nearly all available development technologies and applies the appropriate technology to the appropriate solution.
It’s tough to estimate the exact development cost of custom software because every piece of software is tailor-made and unique. No two custom-built applications are the same. Hence, sharing an approximation of general costs without understanding the project’s specific requirements is difficult.

There are numerous aspects that contribute to the costs of custom software development which include the size of the software (the number of pages/ screens), the complexity of the software, design specifications, integration with other systems, migration of existing data, usage patterns, and so on.
In certain cases, it is possible to do so. Fingent’s software architects will guide you by analyzing the needs, scalability, and supportability of your older app and offer you the appropriate recommendations. Integrating your existing application to a newer application is also dependent upon the level of access that we have to your older app’s fundamental functions or if an API is made available by the app. (API or Application Programming Interface is a built-in feature that allows external connection to an app’s data).
