Off-the-shelf vs. Custom Software Development
Automated Results provides customer software development services when off-the-shelf applications do not meet the your requirements. At Automated Results, we first seek best-of-breed off-the-shelf software as a first choice and provide custom software development services to
fill in when nothing is currently available to fit the complexity of your needs. Although we are capable of designing and developing standalone applications, we like to investigate existing applications that may fulfill all or part of the need, then determine if a standalone application is required or a hybrid design
where off-the-shelf software is combined with some level of custom software. We seek a strong architecture that will meet current and long-term needs and help you weigh out the cost of the implementation vs. the value being delivered to be sure the custom development will deliver
the expected value.
Our Seasoned AR Toolset Cuts Development Costs by 50%
Automated Results has evolved a set of software components over the last 30 years that can be reused from project to project. We don't reinvent the wheel, instead we capitalize on our prior work and continuous evolve our toolset that not only provides reuseable code and design consistency but the toolset also evolves with as the software development platform (ex. Microsoft Visual Studio) evolves.
The AR Toolset is time-tested software that is in use in applications world-wide, thus it is equivalent to off-the-shelf software because it is in production within a diverse set of applications. The AR Toolset consistently delivers a 50% or more savings on customer software development costs... that's a significant ROI improvement!
