Bespoke Software Development foFor Your Business
Bespoke software development is in high demand. For the owner of an expanding business, a piece of bespoke, custom built software allows for the automation of many tasks and streamlining of processes, greatly improving the organisation’s overall productivity levels and efficiency. The need for a team who can assist with bespoke software development is commonly more critical to an already established business who require software that addresses the operation-critical tasks that are placed upon a modern business; something ‘off the shelf’ software may not be able to do.
When we work with businesses, we often find underlying issues that affect users on a daily basis, which make considering bespoke software development a priority and help achieve increased productivity, efficiency and profitability, as mentioned above. Some examples you may have experienced include:
- Frequent errors occuring with software due to a lack of support, out of date updates
- Spreadsheets and other software requiring a large amount of manual processing
- Having to access multiple sources of data
- Unable to cope with business demand and future growth demand
- Incompatibility with new hardware and software being introduced
- Time consuming activities that should be much more efficient

CRM / ERP Systems
CRM systems are designed to manage the interactions that an organisation has with its clients and customers more efficiently. Used frequently amongst sales and outbound employees, a CRM system acts as a central storage point for all information related to any interactions had between the organisation and its customers. It allows for different members of staff to clearly identify the nature of the last discussion had with the customer, who is the last member of staff that spoke with the customer and if there are any future tasks assigned to a particular staff member.
Bespoke custom developed CRM systems that can effectively organise and manage the interactions that a business has with its customers can revolutionize a company’s internal sales funnels and increase sales.

The key difference between CRM and ERP systems is that ERP systems are focused on effectively managing and streamlining an organization's internal processes.
Back Office Systems
A back office system, ensures the efficient administration of internal operations within an organisation. Although customers will not directly benefit from the implementation of back office software, they too can feel the difference with a more efficient and effective service. Back office systems can massively increase efficiency and productivity within areas of accounting and finance, project management, human resources and more.
These back office systems are of both a technical and human nature. This is why we believe bespoke software can have such influential and positive results when implemented as newer technology will create economies of scale and process efficiencies
Where back office system efficiency comes into its own in the role it plays for users, in making their tasks run more smoothly.

How we work
At Vecro Tech, we offer a full Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) service that goes from Requirements Analysis, Design, Implementation and Testing, then finally to the Deployment and Maintenance phase. We do not simply make a piece of software that we think will be fit for purpose, we actively engage with clients at every stage to ensure the bespoke software development project is the best possible fit and continues to maximise the potential of our customers businesses after implementation.
Requirements Analysis Phase
We work in partnership with your business to learn about your requirements, your expectations and challenges faced in pursuit of growth. Our dedicated project manager will work with the key stakeholders of your business to create an outline of the software package you require. This is done through a unique mix of face-to-face interactions, collaboration tools and reporting.
It is vital at this stage, that we include users in the discussion, so that any high level goals regarding productivity and scalability do not impact the usability of the bespoke software being developed.
Our design and technical experts will turn this outline into a design for you to review, amend as required and ultimately approve for creation. Some of the tools we use in the design phase include:
- Discovery Meetings (Face-to-face, Video and Telephone Conference)
- Collaboration software
- Video proposals with supporting documentation
During this phase, we will discuss parameters set by the customer, potential risks of decisions made, technological requirements of the software package, time constraints and budgetary considerations. This is all done to ensure full transparency and to minimise issues arising at a later stage of the development.
This is the phase where our teams experience, expertise and passion create a truly bespoke piece of software that will improve your business operations, customers experience and potential to grow, whilst saving time and money.
Central to achieving these goals is the way we have put together a talented team who are experts in a wide array of programming languages and frameworks. Whereas many bespoke software developers will use expensive options that lock you into a specific vendor or require high licensing costs, we believe in choosing the best solution for your requirements, whether that is C#, .Net, PHP, Node.JS or another solution. No matter the solution we decide upon, we create it for you and not to our benefit, ensuring its effective, efficient and works across all platforms and devices.
This phase of developing the product will be a continuous collaboration of experts, reviewing each others developments to ensure the overall product works as one, testing and providing feedback, repeating this mini cycle as many times as required until project requirements are met.
As part of our quality control, we have developed a structured, comprehensive testing methodology to minimise issues and maximise results of any bespoke software. We will map the testing programme against the specific requirements agreed in the initial phases, meaning each client has a bespoke testing programme created for their piece of software. Our experts will check each section of code or process to ensure it works without fault and in line with the project specifications.
Furthermore, we undertake security and performance testing to ensure that it meets all legal and technical requirements in the environment it will operate in. One of the final processes we will implement is in depth User Acceptance Testing and training of users to see how they respond to the software, discover issues to resolve and gain valuable feedback to action.
Deployment and Maintenance Phase:
Following the successful creation of your bespoke solution, we will ensure a smooth transition, working together with all key stakeholders to manage the system implementation A vital part of this phase is to ensure that everyone has the tools they need to use this software effectively and so we continue to train users, whilst we implement the software, building on the work done in the previous phase and subsequently provide them with guidance documentation.
Our teams will be monitoring the software following deployment to ensure any errors, maintenance or queries that arise are resolved as efficiently as possible, once more minimising any negative impacts on the business during this challenging but exciting time.
