The big question: Do you want a person with limited experience or would you rather have a team that has years of experience to find and or create the solution that fits your needs?
These days, software applications play a major part in the running of any organization. Doing business without a properly configured technology platform could lead to ultimate chaos in an organization.
For example, an E-commerce solution, mobile application, social media, contact forms …. that send their data to a CRM that would help a business to track all those leads that are originating from different sources and which can ensure follow-up of each lead. Likewise, an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system can integrate all the vital functions of an organization and the effective management of the business is made possible with the maximum utilization of resources.
Whatever the case, the software or solution needs to be selected on the basis of the current requirement as well as the future needs. Scalability, as the organization grows bigger, is one of the key issues to be addressed here. Here comes the role of a software consultant who can fine-tune your business requirements and help you to choose the best software or solution that would meet the current and future needs. A software consultant has the responsibility to analyze the existing system, how the business is done and help management to decide what is the software or solution that is best suitable for the business under review. Based on the cost consideration and other factors, the consultant could lead management to select a customized software solution or an off the shelf one. This solution is documented in a functional specification, that is the roadmap and blueprint for the entire current project but also can and most often included future expansion as well.
Once the software selection is done, it’s now the implementation. During the implementation phase, all the basic requirements have to be studied and properly integrated into the software solution. Vijay Software’s work model works best with our on-site consultants that act as the intermediary between the client and our software team. They review the customer requirements and after a careful analysis prepare a proposal and work estimate, to be reviewed and approved by the customer before proceeding to the implementation phase. This work process prevents last minute changes of the project and resultant cost overruns.
