Why You Should Consider Bespoke Development For Your Next Project

Are you having trouble finding the right solution for your business challenges? Maybe a one-size-fits-all product isn’t quite right, keep reading to find out more about why you might want to go for bespoke development instead.

Every business experiences its own unique challenges, which may require an equally unique solution. You could try a cookie-cutter product but this could produce less efficient results, as it won’t have been built for your individual situation.

Approaching a digital technical partner to help you create a bespoke solution means that you will be building something specially tailored to your requirements. This will ensure that the solution is a perfect fit for your specific challenge or objective and allow your team to push the boundaries.

If you’ve been here before, you’ll know we love a good list – so here are a few reasons why you might want to implement bespoke development in your next digital project:

  1. Truly Bespoke Requirements – As mentioned above, you may have extremely unique requirements that simply can’t be met by off-the-shelf solutions. It can be frustrating and time-consuming to try and find the perfect fit but forging your own path can save you a lot of time and effort.
  2. Brand Identity – A custom-built solution can be created with your brand identity in mind, perfectly complimenting your branding as a whole. This will create a seamless customer experience across different platforms and help you to stand out in your marketplace.
  3. Competitive Edge – A completely custom-built solution can really set you aside from your competitors. For example, you could create an innovative new way to approach an industry-specific challenge, which would be exclusive to your business.
  4. Control – When creating something from scratch with a trusted partner, you will have full control over the project and you can design the perfect solution for your business or change anything you don’t like along the way.
  5. Integrating Other Systems – You might need to integrate a variety of different systems into your website (or other digital offerings), creating a unique solution will allow you to make sure those systems are kept in mind during the building process. This will enable you to compliment your existing tech stack, while avoiding any unecessary chaos upon implementation.
  6. Scalability – With an ambition to grow, comes the requirement to be scalable. If you create your own individual solution, you will be able to include elements that will increase the lifespan of your digital offering, essentially making it future-proof. If you created a new eCommerce app/website, you would want to know that it would be able to cope with an influx of new customers, if you went viral on TikTok for example.
  7. Security – Last but by no means least, this might seem like an obvious point but with any digital project – security is massively important. If you’re processing data, it’s always important to adhere to GDPR guidelines and other important regulations relating to online payments or customer/supplier information. Similar to our point on control, by making something unique, you will be able to oversee the security elements of the project and get the information first-hand.

You will find a great example of a bespoke development project within our client stories, featuring Medivet – one of the largest chains of vet clinics in the UK.

We worked with the Medivet marketing team to create a new approach to customer reminders for pet vaccinations and treatments. We developed a reminders micro-service to process reminder data and produced pre-defined templates to generate personalised messages to their clients.

This reminders service now processes over 5,000 reminders per day and over 2,000,000 reminders are processed throughout each year.
