Custom-Created Software Might be Right for You.

By: Charles Carter

The software manufacturing industry, specifically the proprietary programming industry faces fierce competition in todays software market.

This competition has created opportunities for those individuals or small companies that create custom programs.

Software manufacturing is being remodeled in its method, standards and ways of doing business primarily due to the growing emergence of applied-driven and custom-driven production methods and competition. This shift towards custom manufacturing is emerging in line with the prevailing open source programming taking over the IT world.

Anyone with a Personal Computer and a bit of know how can create custom programs that are as powerful and more finely tuned to a customers needs than the 'Big Commercial Boys'.

The easiest and most common programs are rooted in Database administration; the collection, modification and reporting of data. Companies and individuals are willing to accept or at least try a program from a 'small' programmer and the 'small' programmers usually promote their software as shareware.

In the pursuit of customers, the large software manufactures include a lot of bells and whistles, not in response to customer demands, but designed to separate their product from their competitors.

This usually results in a manufacturing process that prevents detailed responses to errors - instead of major errors or flaws in the software making it to the factory floor - the reports are passed to 'patch' creators.



Enter the little man, the small company. He or she want's your business and will work with a customer to provide a product that meets their needs and answers their concerns. Furthermore the small company understands that they don't have a satisfied customer until they prove themselves. It's in that understanding that many shareware programmers test and retest their product and offer demo's.
