Upgrading from SaaS to DIFM in Enterprise Software Development

Custom software development embodies the concept of Do It For Me – rather than learning how to use a variety of software packages, you can have a system built that can be maintained for you, saving time and money while guaranteeing a return on investment. Anthony P. Lee wrote in his TechCrunch article that “DIFM combines technology automation with specialized labor to deliver a complete solution to a business problem. It’s as much about people-powered customer service as it is about code-powered efficiency.”

Baby boomers and consumers who are less concerned with the notion Do It Yourself and more concerned with getting things done-the right way-have been the driving force behind DIFM. This new and innovative form of consumerism has been the call-to-action of revamped startup industries like food delivery, pickup and rideshare, even apparel delivery-complete with fashion advice. Many of these startups aren’t bound by the old way of maintaining inventory and managing warehouses-they’re based on bringing both new and existing companies back into the view-and backyard-of consumers. For software development, DIFM encompasses the utilization of open-source software and integration of a company’s existing applications with new and unique functionalities that your company can benefit from since they’re tailored to your needs. To maximize your company’s productivity, your end users need to be adept in utilization of your software’s capabilities and your software needs to anticipate the needs of your business. Building customized applications can prove to be the perfect fit with Ayoka’s help, as our developers can scale your application to grow with your company while maintaining program usability and security.

Lee eloquently pointed out that “businesses have complex needs, such as payments, accounting, payroll, benefits, tax, inventory and scheduling.” Dealing with vendors for a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution can result in the purchase of a less than optimal solution while costing time and money. The Vendor-client relationship in the search for a fitting SaaS solution can teeter back and forth based on a vendor’s performance and a client’s articulation of their specific needs. Small businesses often work with vendors that stall, mislead, misunderstand, or lose communication during project iterations. Out-of-the-box solutions don’t always end up benefitting your company in the long-run after implementation, either. Working with poor performance in your software systems creates a bottleneck for productivity in your business. Ayoka’s software services allow clients to build new applications or enhance their existing applications while maintaining control over their intellectual property. If your company has already implemented an out-of-the-box software solution, Ayoka’s custom software solutions can be seamlessly integrated to meet your company’s unique needs.
