BESPOKE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT
Working with a bespoke software development company doesn’t have to be complicated.
With an experienced development team by your side, you can improve your company’s efficiency, steal market share, and grow or scale at any time.
Let's Talk About Your Project
What is Bespoke Software?
Bespoke software is software made specifically to suit particular business requirements. Unlike off-the-shelf solutions, custom software is more efficient, better supported, and highly adaptive.
At Entrance Consulting, we take on bespoke software development projects of various complexity. Our experienced team of qualified developers works closely together with your representatives to ensure 100% satisfaction with the final product.
The key benefits of choosing custom software development
over off the shelf software include:
- Lifetime support from the bespoke development team vs the possibility of discontinued support.
- Ability to integrate bespoke solutions as per your business needs and add only the required features designed specifically for your exact requirements.
- Possibility to add functionality to the bespoke app as your company needs change or cutting edge technologies emerge.
- Full control of added functionality to your bespoke solution without the need to worry about licensing.
- A competitive edge over other businesses that don’t have access to bespoke application development.
Overall, bespoke software is like custom clothing. While off-the-shelf suits may look fine, they never fit as perfectly as bespoke business suits do.
Taking advantage of custom tailored software can help your business stay on top of the other companies and improve its bottom line.
Our Bespoke Software Development Services
At Entrance, we can help you obtain top-notch bespoke software solutions for your business. Our dedicated team offers the following set of services aimed at achieving 100% satisfaction.
Mobile application development
Mobile applications are a significant part of success in many industries, including oil & gas, manufacturing, and healthcare. When you decide to take full advantage of mobile development and mobile apps, our professional team is here to help.
Bespoke web development
Bespoke web applications can help your company meet a variety of goals. These apps can also improve employee satisfaction by giving your team members comprehensive access to data on the go. We assist with creating customer portals that play a major role in customer satisfaction for many companies.
Even though everyone is currently online, offline apps are highly important for many industries, especially oil & gas since drilling sites are often in remote locations. We build bespoke mobile software that can work without an internet connection.
Cloud app development
With cloud technologies becoming an important part of business processes across the world, adding cloud applications to your technology stack is an excellent way to improve your company’s efficiency. At Entrance, we specialize in cloud app and software development for your company’s needs.
Windows bespoke software development
Working in the Windows environments is often essential to fulfilling your business needs. From automation to modernization, we handle all the aspects of bespoke software development in Windows. Even though Windows apps aren’t as popular as they used to be, they are great for improving the customer experience for clients who prefer this OS over other options.
SaaS applications are highly popular in many industries that need mobile online commercial software to be available online 24/7. SaaS apps are an excellent addition to your current software offering, helping you increase the satisfaction of your target audience. They can also replace your legacy systems and take the company to a new level.
Overall, at Entrance, we are developing bespoke software solutions of all shapes and sizes. If you are looking for a perfect solution that can increase productivity for your company, you need bespoke software services.
Why you should choose bespoke software for your company?
The benefits of custom software development are overwhelming. When you hire a software development company to work on your application, you take a huge step toward improving business efficiency.
By answering the following questions, you can figure out whether you are ready for bespoke software solutions:
- Is your team overwhelmed with repetitive tasks?
- Do you buy new off-the-shelf apps every time you need additional functionality?
- Is your technology stack inflated?
- Are all the programs you work with easily integrated with each other?
- Does your current software solve all business problems?
- Are your employees happy with your current software?
- Does your software spending feel out of control?
If you are spending too much on off-the-shelf solutions that don’t offer comprehensive assistance and take a toll on your employees, you are ready to start working with a custom software development company.

Software Development Methodologies We Use
At Entrance, we adjust the software development process to the needs of our clients. As soon as you provide project details and company requirements, we can evaluate the data and come up with the most useful software development methodology for your business case.
In the majority of cases, we recommend using Agile methodology. It’s an adaptable framework that often fits the bill when we don’t know the full requirements at the beginning of the project. The methodology allows us to make course corrections to the requirements when the project is already running.
During the development process, our clients can learn more about the technology solutions they need based on their experience and testing with the in-development system. We make adjustments according to the new input without disrupting the development process.
This is possible because the Agile methodology development process is divided into smaller phases called sprints.
Between the sprints, we discuss and demonstrate the work completed during the previous sprint and evaluate the features to be added during the next one. Any changes to the requirements based on new information or changing business requirements are added at that time, just before the feature is implemented.
Agile methodology allows our development team to work together with the client to ensure transparency into our process and reduce risk throughout the development life-cycle.
The waterfall methodology is a classic way to develop software for our clients. While this approach is not popular today and lacks Agile’s flexibility, it can yield excellent results. If the client provides extensive details up front about the software they need, we can save time by designing and developing the product with linear project management.
Unlike the Agile methodology which divides the development process into stages, the Waterfall approach creates a full-scale project plan to suit the initial requirements and completes the development cycle accordingly.
With this method, the development team doesn’t collaborate with the client closely since one stage of the project organically cascades into the next one (hence, the name waterfall). When the software is ready, the development team launches it as a finished product and gathers feedback.
At this point, a second project can be started to create the next version of the program, with new or adjusted features, also planned and designed as a complete, discrete product change.
The MVP Approach
At Entrance, we can also practice a highly efficient MVP (minimum viable product) approach. This framework iinvolves building a product that satisfies the most basic needs of the target audience and launching it for our clients.
Once the software starts running, we collect valuable feedback about its operation and make relevant changes in real time. Taking advantage of the MVP approach cuts the costs of software development significantly.
Since you are making smaller changes according to the feedback all along the way , you avoid the high costs of redeveloping the final product. MVP allows you to maximize the efficiency of the application and achieve faster results.
Software Development Technologies
At Entrance, we stay on top of the latest software development technologies and implement them according to the needs of our clients. Some of the current technologies that we employ include:
Microsoft .NET Framework Technologies
Software development network that allows us to build software for Windows. This includes ASP.Net, WCF, MauiS
Microsoft Azure Technologies
A comprehensive set of technologies that help us build databases, create web apps, develop mobile apps, and create interconnected services all living in the cloud and running on hardware and software managed by a dedicated staff of Microsoft employees.
We closely monitor the needs of our clients and the available technologies with the goal of developing efficient apps across many industries.
Industries We Develop Software For
At Entrance, we have experience working with businesses of different sizes across many industries, including:
- Oil & Gas
- Professional services
Regardless of the industry you are in, you need custom software that takes care of your core business operations. Even if you have a less-than-perfect understanding of what your business needs from a custom app, you can still start the development process.
Our software development experts have extensive experience with software in many industries. They can make valuable suggestions and guide you through the process smoothly.
