Successful companies are successful because they do things differently – better – than the competition.
And since technology is an integral part of modern business, successful companies need software to automate and integrate the things that set them apart.
Plenty of software exists with plenty of functionality, but everyone implements it. So at the end of the day, those implementing standard software are just like everyone else.
Software Development Plans are the way for companies to tailor software to their specific needs -- the strengths that set them ahead of the competition.
In creating a strategic technology plan or preparing for the upcoming year, a company should consider entering a Software Development Plan with a technology provider.
Entering a Software Development Plan is like hiring a team of developers, but much more cost-effective. The company directs and controls the development it wants performed by the technology provider, and the technology provider reserves resources to develop the functionality that the company wants.
The company remains in control of the budget and scope for development. For example, Essent Software Development Plans start at as little as 10 hours per month at affordable rates.
The result is enhanced functionality, minimized implementation time, big bang for the buck, and reasonable maintenance costs in a solution tailored to the activities, processes, and workflow that make a successful company successful.
