PDI custom app development
In the history of our software development we have always specialised in what is termed ‘Custom App Development’. That is, we create small, medium and large applications which are designed and built solely for a single or small handful of clients.
PDI Spirit has created applications for companies like Dawson Marketing Services, Stronghaven, London Distribution, Woolworths, Masai Barefoot Technology (MBT), LCK Express Parcels, PKF, Carte Blance and Clorox – to name just a few.
The range of these applications include file imports, order processing, scanning, invoicing, transportation, document printing, label printing and data management. They link in with various accounts systems such as Sage, Pastel Partner, ACCPAC and QuickBooks; other existing corporate systems, or they are completely stand-alone.
PDI Spirit has successfully integrated with systems running MS-SQL Server, Oracle, Interbase, Firebird and even Access, Paradox, dBase and Visual Fox Pro.
This means we can develop almost anything to fit your needs and your existing system.
Why Custom App Development?
As you use your main system, say your accounting system, you may find that you need just a little bit of extra functionality. To get this new functionality you may be required to upgrade to the next version of the accounting system – or worse, you may have to get a completely new accounts system. This means spending time and money on new software, its implementation, possible hardware changes and staff training. All that for just some new functionality – not to mention you may actually loose some existing functionality!
This is where Custom App Development comes in. A Customised App gives you the additional application you need, while efficiently linking in with your existing system and plugging the holes in your current software.
The Custom App, could be something as simple as a collection of reports that provides information in a specified format. As your current system capably stores the data that you input, it’s possible that it doesn’t exhale the information as you need it. We can help with this!
It could be that you are working with two separate systems and would like a data transfer functionality. Custom App Development is capable of joining their functionalities together while keeping the two systems running. Or, because an application doesn’t exist which encompasses both, we can write a larger application that joins the two together for you as well.
Perhaps you do not have a complete system available and you are looking for a company to build a full application for you.
We can do all of this and more! PDI Spirit has created the report package, the small-middle-tier application, and the full complete application.
