At CID, we build bespoke software that supports you to achieve your goals. We become experts in your domain, partners that understand the nuances of your industry and your unique position within it. Then we apply our deep knowledge of the latest technologies to create software that’s built from the bottom up, tailored to your precise ambitions and developed without risk or overrun.
Give your vision the software it deserves. Now let’s look at how that works.
Developing bespoke software
You’re here because you know that bespoke software development offers the potential to truly differentiate yourself in a way off-the-shelf products simply can’t.
The way you structure your organisation, engage with customers and promote your offerings relies on the software you have at your core. And you want that software to be as powerful and unique as you.
That’s where we come in.
At CID, we engineer bespoke software in a better way. A way that combines technical expertise with collaboration, giving you and your teams the tools to continue to pursue their business goals with confidence.

A better model of bespoke software development
Building bespoke software is hard. And with limited in-house resources to build a software solution that delivers on their unique vision, many businesses turn to outside help.
Here, you’re generally faced with two options.
On the one hand, you can outsource bespoke software development to a third party, whether a high-end consultancy or a bodyshop. But these either implement their own strategy or rely on you to manage technical decisions, direct personnel and orchestrate delivery. This creates risk and leaves a vacuum of technical expertise once the project has been finished.
The other option is to buy something off-the-shelf. But this makes any idea of differentiation a pipedream, because off-the-shelf really means the-same-software-as-everyone-else.
What we offer is a better way.
Between these two extremes is a space we call the Advantage Gap. And it’s there that we can develop bespoke software that truly delivers on its promise.
The promise of building something that truly delivers a competitive advantage and propels your business to new heights.
At CID, we’ve been working within the Advantage Gap for decades, developing bespoke software solutions and services that have supported our customers to transform their prospects.
The advantages of bespoke software development
Building a custom software solution takes time, thought and energy. These are worthy investments though, as the advantages organisations gain from bespoke software are immense:
