When to go bespoke?
Off the shelf CMS like Umbraco and WordPress are brilliant but some times they can’t do everything you want them to. If you have a specific functional requirement this either needs to be programmed in or sometimes its better to build bespoke from the ground up.
What are the advantages of going bespoke?
Building bespoke has many advantages over off the shelf open source or licensed software.
- First of all, there is no license fee. We include any such fees in the one-off development costs.
- Second, as a bespoke system, we can tailor it and build it to any requirements. This is particularly useful for jobs where off the shelf software just not have the functionality or capability to extend to do specific tasks. Many of our more complex sites are built on our own CMS for this reason.
- Third, because we develop the software we can support it 100%. We do not have to revert to online forums or help desks or search for plugins to help fix holes.
