Steps involved in the development of custom software

Requirement Gathering
The purpose of custom software is to offer solutions to unique problems that your business might be facing. Therefore, the first step towards custom software development is an in-depth discussion between the business owners and software consultants to understand the needs and the issues of a company.  

Planning and analysis
Based on the needs of the business, software developers work with consultants on brainstorming and planning important aspects like risk management, contingency plans, research and deciding the software architecture.

Developers choose the software stack and start designing the actual software in this stage. The software stack is chosen on the basis of its intended application as well as the expertise of the developers. 


The development of the software's front-end and back-end is taken care of in this stage. The UI of the software is developed after taking inputs from the clients.

Testing is a crucial stage in custom software development. All the bugs and errors are spotted and fixed during testing. Developers spend a lot of time testing every aspect and functionality of the software to find bugs. 

Once the custom software development is complete and has been delivered to the clients, it is essential for developers to provide the clients with the necessary training. 

Without the right training, clients can sometimes find it difficult to make the best use of the software. Even maintenance is a crucial post-development service to be provided by developers to the clients. Preventive, adaptive, corrective, and perfective are four crucial types of maintenance that dependable software developers offer to clients.
