PMware vs. Off-The-Shelf Business Software

When it comes to choosing software for project management within your organization, you have many different options. Many times, the choice is between a custom project management software such as PMware, or an off-the-shelf business software solution. There are some major differences between these two distinct options, which we'll expand upon in this article to help you make best choice for your business.

Cost

When it comes to cost, an off-the-shelf solution will almost always be cheaper than custom software. However, when it comes to long-term benefits, custom software more than makes up for the price difference. While an off-the-shelf solution won't cost as much as PMware, you get what you pay for, and custom software is well worth the higher initial investment. At the end of the day, you'll reach a higher profitability when you use a custom-designed software for your unique business processes.

Quality

Quality is an important consideration, and custom software like PMware is much higher quality than any off-the-shelf business software solution. With more features, further specialization, constant improvements, and a rigorously maintained standard of quality, PMware project management software is held to a higher standard of quality than an off-the-shelf solution.

Efficiency

One major concern when it comes to project management is the efficiency and performance of your software, and in this category, off-the-shelf solutions simply can't keep up with custom project management software. PMware provides an efficient workflow, precise tools and other features that further streamline the user experience. The simplified workflow provides an easy-to-use interface for the management of any and all projects within your company, drastically increasing efficiency across the board with its intuitive design. Add to that the training and resources provided by PMware, and you have yourself an efficient project management system, and employees that are trained to use it correctly.

Support

When it comes to long-term support, an off-the-shelf software solution simply doesn't stack up, and they rarely provide adequate support, if any at all. On the other hand, PMware offers the best support available, including professional assistance implementing their software within your company. If long-term support is a major concern for you, then a solution from off-the-shelf simply doesn't hold up. So if you're looking for high-quality long-term support, custom software is the only real choice.

Conclusion

Between a generic off-the-shelf solution and PMware's custom project management software, the ideal choice is clear. While there’s a higher cost, the standard of quality, exceptional level of efficiency, high performance, and long-term professional support more than makeup for the difference.
