A Guide to Custom Software

Table of Contents

WHY YOU NEED CUSTOM SOFTWARE

WordPress, Shopify, and Magento are a few examples of content management systems (CMS). Almost any person can download, install, and learn how to use these powerful platforms. However, there are several issues with this type of "out-of-the-box" software.

Limitations

There are many things that these systems cannot do without the help of custom software. Cited solutions to overcoming these problems often lead to an assortment of plugins which can cause performance issues.

Performance

Performance can be a huge issue when installing plugins created by different distributors. In fact, conflicting or outdated CMS plugins can actually crash your website. Software is most effective when developed and updated by an individual or focused group of programmers familar with the technology utilized. We did two Google speed tests comparing this page with a simple, comparable wordpress version at radd.tech/slow/. It scored 24 points lower using the default theme despite having the exact same features as this page.

The "Perfect" Look

You will not have a "perfect" website (aesthetically) unless you hire someone who knows how to create templates. This requires not only coding knowledge but experience designing UX/UI. It would suffice to say that things cannot be learned overnight.

CUSTOM SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT COST

The average US salary for a computer engineer in 2020 is approximately $80,0001 so you can expect to pay around $6,500 per programmer per month plus a small percentage of this cost. However, if this is out of your budget then we will work with you to find less qualified programmers at cheaper prices.

CUSTOM SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS

GATHER REQUIREMENTS

Gather Requirements for your software.

The first step in developing any program is to determine the objective. What problem are you trying to solve? RaddTech generally develops three types of software:

At this stage it is important to determine your budget for the project.

CHOOSE A DEVELOPER(S)

Now that requirements and budgets are set we can select an individual or a team that will work on your project. The programmer(s) we recommend will depend on your specific needs and budget. Team members work as contractors and are led by an internal head of software development. For confidentiality purposes, clients will only have contact with the heads of software development. When choosing team members you will have access to prospective programmers' education levels and generic no-brand references with name and contact information omitted.

DEVELOP USER INTERFACES (UX/UI)

The next step is to develop user interfaces for each visible page. This planning is crucial for designing a program that is aesthetically pleasing. It is important to make sure that all requirements of the software can be met with the planned UX/UI Elements.

DETERMINE A TIME FRAME

At this point, we’ll be able to determine a time frame for your project. We will also provide pricing options for different time frames based on the number of programmers it would take to complete the project in this amount of time. You can now begin marketing your software. Build up the suspense and anticipation so that your first day of production begins with strong momentum.

RECEIVE YOUR QUOTE

We now have all of the information necessary to quote your software. A 25% deposit is due in order to begin development. The remaining 75% is due or may be financed upon project approval and completion.

DEVELOPMENT

Development is officially underway. Sit back, relax, and receive weekly updates on your project. You will have access to pages being built in real time with a key to get past the “under construction” page.

TESTING

It’s time to bring a closed group of test subjects to begin evaluating the software. Feedback will be observed, and tweaks will be made to problem areas. This phase will continue until all errors have been debugged.

PRODUCTION

Software Development, Testing, and Production.

It’s time to start making money. Send out emails to everyone anticipating your release and see your investment begin generating returns. RaddTech Software comes with a lifetime warranty. Any bugs or errors will be fixed for free, forever.

UPDATES

Every program needs updates. Improvements to software are necessary to keep up with changing needs. Updates to appearance or functionality can be quoted and updated in a relatively short period of time, depending on the update.
