Frequently Asked Questions

Bespoke software development differs from off-the-shelf software in its custom nature. While off-the-shelf software is pre-packaged and designed for a broad audience, bespoke software is uniquely tailored to meet the specific needs of a business. It provides full customisation, ensuring it fits perfectly with existing processes, scales as the business grows, and integrates seamlessly with other systems. Businesses have full ownership and control over bespoke software, allowing ongoing adjustments and enhancements.

Propel Tech works collaboratively, we determine your business's bespoke software needs through a consultative process. We start with an in-depth discussion to grasp your objectives and challenges. A needs assessment helps identify areas where custom software can be most impactful. We collaborate closely with you to gather detailed requirements, set the strategy, plan the project, and create prototypes. Our development team builds the software to your specifications, followed by rigorous testing and seamless deployment. We provide training and ongoing support and always value your feedback.

User testing and feedback play a crucial role in bespoke software development, at Propel Tech we advocate testers being involved from project inception - this means that testing considerations are never an afterthought but “baked in” to our strategic approach. User testing adds a second level of testing and ensures rigour in our software development. During user testing, real users interact with the software to identify usability issues, functionality concerns, and areas for improvement. Their feedback helps uncover unforeseen challenges and ensures the software meets user expectations. This iterative process allows us to refine the user experience, enhance functionality, and address any issues promptly. By incorporating user feedback, we create software that is user-friendly, efficient, and tailored to meet the specific needs of your business, resulting in a more successful and satisfying end product.
