In today’s fast-paced world, responding to both internal and external challenges can essentially determine competitiveness. Reaching the efficient level of operation is definitely a huge success, but in order to stay ahead of the competition, organizations need to find their own way in adapting to challenges. Custom made solutions can flawlessly support unique needs and transform business processes into efficient and streamlined automated tasks.
Business processes themselves can be unique together with the purpose they are implemented for and their usage. Custom software can perfectly address the specific needs of companies compared to existing solutions provided by off-the-shelf software. With custom software development, integration between different systems can be achieved and extended functionality can be added, such as accessing corporate information systems from mobile devices, report building or data visualisation.
More than development
Custom software development does not only mean the development of new applications from ground up. It also includes the revision, re-engineering or re-platforming of previous software and applications. You can rely on our developers in many areas of custom development:
Building custom applications from ground up to meet your specific needs
Migration of applications from legacy platforms by re-engineering and re-building existing custom-built applications using cloud technologies

Application testing guarantees thorough tests on all platforms including cloud and mobile
Software quality assurance (QA) service secures efficient, sustainable QA process
Exceptional value from industry leaders
Even if custom software development could be performed by a client’s in-house team, external partners are able to examine the issue more objectively. Besides, there are a number of non-functional requirements, such as system performance, security, infrastructure, that may affect the success of the project. A specialized partner with broader technology expertise is able to harmonize different areas and tasks of developing bespoke software.
In order to provide exceptional service in custom software development, in 2020 Softline strengthened its developer team with more than 200 employees of Aplana Group. Through the acquisition of the software development business of Aplana Group, Softline achieved leading competencies in custom development. The former Aplana developers together with Softline’s own software development team formed Develonica, to help customers meeting the challenges of digital transformation.
Custom development in practice
Creating reliable and well-defined sales processes is of the utmost importance for every company to provide seamless customer experience. One of our clients, is a world leader in the field of medical diagnostic imaging technology, services and healthcare productivity. They faced the challenges of selling complex medical equipment such as MR scanners. Their sales process included configuring and customizing various systems’ options, based on the specific customer requirements, spare parts availability and support options. The client’s sales representatives were in need of a tool that would make equipment configuring process easier and more reliable in the field.
Develonica team helped the client to create their Field Sales Support System, which played an important role in the company’s go-to-market strategy. The system allowed sales representatives in the field to:
access the latest product information
