Looking to maximise software productivity? We deliver results faster

Software productivity can be defined as the ratio between the functional value of software and the cost of producing it. Source code and documentation may be the primary outputs of software production, but they do not provide a measure of its commercial value.

Our innovative use of metadata means we build custom software applications with less source code and more business value.

Why is SCAD Software’s approach different?

A safer, faster way to innovate

Our SCAD Software framework is based on an innovative use of metadata, which reduces the volume of source code needed to bring your vision to life. In addition, our custom software development framework contains many pre-configured building blocks for core business processes, from CRM to ERP, to commercial loan management and much more.

With less source code, we can develop your applications faster, with a dynamic iterative approach to development. By speeding up the software development lifecycle, we can bring your idea to life within days or weeks.

We can take you to your Minimum Viable Product (MVP). Or we can start a multi-step journey to launch a new capability. Either way we will help reduce your time-to-market or time-to-value to weeks rather than months or even years.

We create metadata which is independent of Operating System (OS), browser and language and connects to an infinite range of REST-based software and services. Once developed, we have a range of support options to ensure we can keep your applications compliant against any changes in technology

Overcoming the challenges of custom software development

Studies show that between 50-80% of custom software development projects fail. At SCAD Software, we have a 100% track record of success, over two decades We understand the challenges involved and much more importantly, we know how to overcome them

Failure to define requirements

Understanding requirements is a critical success factor for low-risk custom software development. We will work with you to capture product objectives, user requirements, and a pathway to ROI with timeline and milestones.

Prohibitive costs

Custom software development can be costly in terms of manhours. As your low-risk software development partner, SCAD Software can help speed-up the process, reducing cost and accelerating time to value.

Understanding user requirements

You may think you’ve had a brilliant idea, but your customers or users may not agree. Invest in capturing user requirements in detail to save time and money by only developing the features they want.

Using the wrong methodology

Agility and speed will be vital to the success of your custom software development project. At SCAD Software, we are so confident in our software development framework that we are willing to share the financial risk with you.

Security Concerns

It is true hackers focus a lot of their efforts on the big multi-user off-the-shelf software applications. However, security should be high on the list of any low-risk software development project.

Potential for Hidden and New Requirements

This goes back to the need to capture requirements to ensure your custom software project is tightly-scoped. Stay focused on your project milestones and keep a buffer in the budget for future improvements.
