Complete Analysis Of Your Business Current Digital Footprint, And More Importantly Building A Digital Roadmap
What Is Software Consultancy?
Software consultancy is a service that helps businesses with their software and IT needs. This can include things like selecting the right software tools, designing custom software solutions, or providing advice on how to improve existing software systems.
With more than 20 years of experience in the IT field, 52nd Solution can help your business with software consultancy by providing expert advice and guidance on the best software solutions to meet your specific needs. We assess your current software systems, identify areas for improvement, and recommend software solutions that can help your business operate more efficiently and effectively.
We focus on bottom-line $$ improvement, not technology for technology’s sake!
The benefits of software consultancy include access to expertise and knowledge that you may not have in-house, which can help you make more informed decisions about your software investments. By working with 52nd Solution, you can save time and money by avoiding costly mistakes, and by getting the right software tools to meet your needs.
Some of the specific benefits of software consultancy include:
Improved efficiency and productivity – By getting the right software tools, you can streamline your business operations and automate manual processes, which can help you save time and reduce errors.
Customised solutions – 52nd Solution can design and implement custom software solutions that are tailored to your specific/unique business needs, which can help you get the most out of your software investments.
Increased competitiveness – By leveraging the latest software tools and technologies, you can stay ahead of the competition and provide better products or services to your customers.
Cost savings – By optimising your software systems, you can reduce costs associated with manual processes, errors, and inefficient workflows.
Let’s say you own a small retail store that sells clothing and accessories, and you’re looking to upgrade your point-of-sale (POS) system to something more modern and efficient. You’re considering two options:
Option A is a cloud-based POS system that costs $100 per month, and
Option B is a traditional, locally installed POS system that costs $2,500 upfront.
You’re not sure which option is best for your business, so you decide to hire 52nd Solution to help you evaluate your options. Our consultant assesses your business needs and recommends that you go with Option A, the cloud-based system. Here’s how this recommendation can save you costs:
Lower upfront costs – With Option A, there’s no upfront cost for hardware or software installation. This can save you $2,500 in upfront costs compared to Option B.
Lower ongoing costs – Option A costs $100 per month, which is significantly lower than the ongoing costs associated with Option B (such as maintenance, upgrades, and support). Assuming you use the POS system for 3 years, you’ll pay $3,600 in total for Option A, compared to $2,500 upfront plus ongoing costs for Option B, which could easily exceed $1,000 per year.
Improved efficiency – The cloud-based system can improve efficiency by allowing you to manage your inventory, sales, and customer data in real-time, from anywhere. This can help you make better business decisions, reduce errors, and save time.
Assuming you follow our recommendation and go with Option A, you can save at least $900 in upfront costs and $1,000 per year in ongoing costs compared to Option B. Over the course of 3 years, that adds up to a total cost savings of $3,900.
In summary, having a technology partner like 52nd Solution can help your business to assess current software systems, identifying areas for improvement, and recommending software solutions that can help you operate more efficiently and effectively. The benefits of software consultancy to a small to medium business include improved efficiency and productivity, customized solutions, increased competitiveness, and cost savings.
