When Your Current Software Can’t Keep Up

Oh no! Your software has crashed again, causing you to scramble to pick up the pieces. Your business is too important to deal with constant software problems.

But how do you resolve the issue?

You could upgrade to the next version of software you are using. You could also try resolving the issue over the phone with technical support that may or may not be here in the U.S. You could even try fixing it yourself.

The problem is, your software is slowing you down and none of these solutions seem to be resolving it. If you have ever experienced the following issues, then you may want to think about upgrading to custom software.

IT issues are eating up time
Feeling stuck in the mud because systems are down again? Or perhaps you keep missing deadlines because of your company’s current system. If you so, it sounds like it is time to consider a software overhaul.

Your current software is too slow on the administrative side of business. With custom software, you can create exactly what you need to speed things up in that area of the company. When you decide to use custom software, you will work directly with a software developer here in the U.S. Should a technical issue arise, the IT personnel are close by and will resolve the matter in little to no time.

IT issues are hurting your credibility
Being behind by a day or two because of IT issues can make or break your company’s credibility. Suppose your software is causing you to miss deadlines. Or maybe your software is providing work that doesn’t meet a client’s standards. You could lose their business as well as future business. Others may see you as careless or even as a risk to partner with.

In 2014 Apple was forced to pull the iOS 8 update. Phones were freezing up and users were having all sorts of problems. Something as simple as a glitch in Apple’s system embarrassed the company. Don’t let this happen to you and your company. Always be the best in your industry with software that suits you.

Misconfigurations are impacting performance
Using poorly supported software can affect an entire company.  If your administrative assistants aren’t able to submit an order for a product, it slows down your manufacturing team and could cause you to miss your next shipment.

Get the job done with software that mirrors your needs. Should an issue arise, you now have control of your own intellectual property. With custom software, you will experience fewer delays and remain productive.

Impacting revenue
Every minute lost to software issues is a loss of productivity, which results in a loss of revenue. It is estimated that 59% of Fortune 500 companies lose an average of 1.6 hours per week because of unplanned downtime. This results in millions of dollars of lost revenue.

There is a solution. A U.S. based software company understands what it is like to be a business owner here in the States. Having tailored instruments allows you to complete projects with little to no delay. Custom software development makes it so that you will never experience a high loss of revenue.

Software won’t support a growing company
A growing company means growing services or products. It is counterproductive to force a dated system to keep up with your business. When you find yourself struggling to grow your business, that is a clear sign you need to update your software.

You could just upgrade to the next version of software you are currently using. But the thing is, those upgrades won’t necessarily help grow your business. A fresh start with custom-tailored software gives you the opportunity to add something new, like mobile software. With custom software, you will be able to reach more people and grow your customer base.

So what next?

Start fresh
Custom software benefits several aspects of a successful business. Operations won’t come to a screeching halt because of IT issues. Working with a company based here in the U.S. will make resolving IT issues fast and efficient. Also, it is key to have software that will help grow your business.

Don’t waste valuable time dealing with dated software that is beginning to weigh on you. Rather, try starting fresh and choose to work closely with Ayoka System’s developers. Together you will create the perfect software to suit your company’s every need.
