Why Do I Need A Custom Database Solution?
Well, the truth is, you don’t need a custom database solution if there is already a system out there that does (mostly) everything you need. But if not, then read on….
You need a system that suits your business and the way you need to work. You have a unique set of data and that can present a challenge in how to manage that data. A generic database solution may not tick all the boxes. Or even come close. A bespoke application, built from the ground up can be tailored to your specific requirements, and meet these challenges.
There are considerable benefits to having a custom database developed for you:
A Custom Database Solution Will Save Time and Money
Firstly, a custom database developer can examine the manual tasks your business completes and automate those as much as possible. As a result, this can help eliminate the need for duplicate data entry, by storing your data in a single location. This single ‘source of truth’ allows you to enter data in considerably less time and in a more consistent manner, increasing your productivity.
Improved Visibility of your Data
When your data is stored in a central location, you can access it in real-time and generate up-to-the-minute reports. You can visualise your data via a custom-built interactive dashboard and reporting suite designed to match your requirements. Importantly, a bespoke reporting solution provides a greater insight into your business productivity and performance. This enables you to easily drill down to investigate areas of concern.
Better Access to your Data with a Cloud-Hosted Web Application
A cloud-based system allows you to safely access your data in real-time, so you can stay connected. You don’t need internal servers, as your data is hosted in a secure cloud application. All you need to access your customised system is a web browser and an internet connection. This can save you considerable time and money on costly software and system upgrades. Importantly, a cloud application means you can enter data or generate reports on a responsive screen from a desktop, laptop, tablet or phone. This allows your business to be incredibly mobile. It also enables your business to expand at a cost-effective rate.
