Software is the lifeblood of your organisation.
It affects the way you operate, run internal processes, build relationships with customers and reach new prospects. It is the key to achieving your vision of the future, helping you to stand apart from the competition as you navigate the challenges ahead.
So it should be as unique and powerful as your ambitions as a business.
The trouble is, when it comes to software development, you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place.
- You can outsource development to a consultancy or bodyshop and risk burdening yourself with all the additional cost, administration and uncertainty that come with managing a team of third party personnel.
- Or buy something off-the-shelf and make any idea of differentiation a pipedream. Not good.
You need a different approach. One that operates in the space between these two extremes, which we call the Advantage Gap. An approach that empathises with the nuances of your operations as much as it appreciates your unique position within your market. And allows you to access true competitive advantages without risk.
Major advantages are in your grasp
Building bespoke software in the Advantage Gap is hard. It takes flexibility, expertise and a deep understanding of your business, industry, technology and goals. That’s where we come in.
Imagine software that’s made-to-measure for your organisation and its specific goals, whether that be a new customer portal, better data analysis or an overhaul of your supply chain. Software that delivers an experience for customers and prospects they can’t find anywhere else. It’s a powerful prospect.
At CID, we’ve made that prospect a reality. We’ve operated in the Advantage Gap for decades, pioneering a model of bespoke software development built on technical expertise and deep collaboration with our customers. We call this approach Advantage Engineering.
