Are You Off Your Head to Go Off the Shelf ?

It’s no secret. There are plenty of sexy looking off-the-shelf websites out there to be seduced by. But looks aren’t everything. The big question is, do off-the-shelf solutions compromise the effectiveness of your brand and site? Is the thought of that much compromise a massive off-the-shelf-turn-off?

Cards on the table, there’s a place in this world for widely available mass-market options like Wordpress and Wix. After all, you could set them up yourself, tap up a freelancer or employ an agency to set one up for you. Bish, bash bosh!

Quick? Tick.

Low cost? Tick.

Basic? Tick.

What you really want to represent your brand and be the online face of your company? Erm.

Bespoke for a Reason

We’re not talking Saville Row exclusivity – we make bespoke solutions accessible to all. Highly cost-effective, we develop to the specific requirements of your business and its goals. From frontend areas of the site which users interact with, to the Admin area, which is specifically designed for managing the client’s content.

Okay, having a bespoke product does take a little longer and it may cost more. That’s obvious. However, we will build around precisely what you need. That’s essential if you have very specific business requirements. You may need quite complex functionality. Maybe a custom algorithm or two.

Why Compromise?

One of the other big drawbacks of going off-the-shelf is that, like it or not, you will have to compromise. To what extent depends upon what your expectations are and the limitations of the off-the-shelf product you choose. Plus, whichever software, platform or theme you go for, there’s nothing to stop a competitor from doing the exact same. After all, you won’t own the Intellectual Property.

Consider Custom

Ask yourself, is it worth investing the time, effort and money into a custom solution? It might not be. On the other hand, investing in bespoke could well be the only way to fulfill all your objectives, keep it up to date, competitive and innovative.

The AVAMAE London team are masters of the bespoke. Custom mobile apps, web apps, desktop apps, software, responsive websites – all created to meet your business objectives and perform effectively.
