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. Unfortunately, traditional software development doesnt play to either of these criteria.  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 that 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 software development project. Our track record of working for highly regulated industries makes us well placed to advise on the appropriate level of security measures for your solution.

  • 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is custom software worth the investment?

    Custom software can be a significant investment, but it often pays off in the long run. It’s tailored to fit your specific business needs, which can improve efficiency, productivity, and user experience. Custom software also offers flexibility for future growth and changes in your business. The decision should be based on a thorough analysis of your business requirements, budget, and long-term goals. Most importantly the software will mirror your business processes, rather than getting your business process to fit into a piece of software than can often be like a round peg in a square hole.

  • How much does it cost to develop custom software?

    The cost of developing custom software varies widely depending on several factors, such as the project’s complexity, the technology stack used, the level of customization needed. This is why we start our process with a business requirement process. Generally, prices can range from a few tens of thousand dollars for simple apps to hundreds of thousands or even millions for complex, enterprise-level systems. It’s best to contact us for a software consultation to get an accurate estimate based on your specific requirements.

  • What cooperation model is better for custom development?

    The choice of a cooperation model depends on your project requirements, budget, and level of involvement you desire. The most common models are fixed price, time and material, and dedicated team. Fixed price is suitable for projects with well-defined requirements, while time and material offers flexibility to adapt to changing needs. A dedicated team model works well for long-term projects requiring ongoing work. The best approach is to discuss your project with you software development partner to determine which model aligns best with your goals and resources.

  • Who decides on the development methodology?

    The development methodology is usually decided collaboratively by the client and us, your software development partner.
