Custom vs off-the-shelf accounting software
At the beginning of your accounting software adoption project, Itransition's consultants will help you decide whether to build a custom application from scratch or purchase an off-the-shelf solution. Here are some parameters to keep in mind.
A bespoke set of features and modules to meet your specific business needs
A fixed range of built-in features established by the software vendor
Higher upfront investment for the software development process
Higher long-term costs of ownership to cover the license fees
Longer adoption time frame due to design, development, and testing
Faster time-to-market as the solution is ready for deployment
Your in-house IT staff takes care of software updates, fine-tuning, and troubleshooting
The software subscription typically includes ongoing maintenance, support, and updates
Extensive configuration and customization options to adapt to your changing accounting needs
Limited possibilities within predefined settings the vendor decided upon
More flexible custom integrations configured by your IT specialists
Native, pre-configured integrations working with compatible third-party software
The solution is adjusted to your existing workflows and tech stack, so its introduction requires minor changes
Adopting software with fixed functionalities may require multiple operational or technical changes
Enterprises with specific business requirements and established workflows
Organizations with limited budgets and more flexible business processes
Benefits of custom accounting software
Implementing a custom solution into your accounting processes will boost the operational and decision-making capabilities of your finance department and organization as a whole.
Accounting software can perform clerical tasks on a large scale with near 100% accuracy, mitigating the risk of operational disruption and the average amount of rework caused by human errors.
Accounting software solutions enable companies to streamline or completely automate time-consuming and labor-intensive processes, such as financial data entry, reducing manual efforts, execution times, and operational costs.
Equipped with data analytics modules or integrated with business intelligence solutions, accounting applications enable efficient data collection, business performance tracking, and financial forecasting to optimize corporate budgeting.
Process automation via accounting programs minimizes manual processing of financial data and other human interactions that can lead to unintentional leaks of sensitive information or fraudulent actions by malicious users.
Accounting software’s superior accuracy in executing financial management tasks, such as AP/AR calculation, general ledger reporting, and reconciliation, facilitates the company’s adherence to increasingly stringent standards and regulatory requirements.
