Buy vs Build

Buy vs Build

The decision whether to buy or build software for your business is not an easy one to make. Claritas works with your I.T. team to understand what the right strategy is for your business. Whether you need established software and packages or new build solutions, Claritas will work with you to find the perfect software solution.

There are standard off-the-shelf applications and services available for most business requirements, however, to ensure your business remains unique, you will need customised software. Whether that be web based applications for your clients, changes to standard packages, or internal systems that integrate with a multitude of other systems, Claritas has extensive knowledge and know-how in helping businesses harness the most from applications.

Building bespoke software can be seen as expensive, however, the return on investment can make it worth the cost.

Why choose bespoke software solutions?

  • Off-the-shelf software cannot meet every need. If your business has specialised needs, custom software may be a better solution for your organisation
  • The vast majority of off-the-shelf software will not allow you to fully modify its functionality. It may be difficult to add or subtract built-in features, leading to either too many or too few functions
  • Off-the-shelf software may not be compatible with other programmes you require. If you build your own software, you can integrate with a wider set software and vendor products
