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.

Andy Fensham


After working as a software consultant to the global banking industry for six years, Andy has devoted the last two decades to realising his vision to transform the software development industry.

Since 1998, when he founded SCAD Software, Andy was aware that the business world was accumulating a vast and unsustainable level of technical debt, with legacy source code becoming a risk factor for organisations of all size. As markets change and digital transformation becomes integral to every business, Andy realised that out-of-date software would put the future of many organisations in jeopardy.

To address this risk, Andy developed a radical new approach to custom software development, which time and time again has delivered large-scale software projects 75% faster than other methods.

Andy is now overseeing the expansion of SCAD Software into new markets in Asia, Middle East, UK, Europe and North America as well as extending the portfolio to include a number of packaged solutions.
