Mid-market companies have their own set of particular needs. There are more complex operations in the business, resulting in more complex workflows to track and manage things. There is a new layer of security that must be implemented and managed.
In many cases, mid-sized companies are always in a state of transition to accommodate growth, and it is in higher-growth times that it becomes evident that the "off the shelf" software isn't handling the new needs and policies of a growing company.
We find that mid-market businesses are constantly pushing the limitations of pre-packaged software in several key business areas: security, communications, sales, accounting, inventory, human resources and more. The lack of integration between software applications slows the business, and the ability to aggregate information from multiple sources (business intelligence) is virtually non-existent.
Mid-market companies find a great strategic partner with Palm Beach Software Design, Inc.
Our policies of having upper management people with software development experience have always maintained proper alignment in our company for over 30 years. There is a genuine interest from the top-down in the software solutions we produce.
Our project management experience allows us to see beyond software speciifications. We care about our clients deeply, and want to get things right "the first time". Asking the right questions, understanding the business model, and understanding the goals and direction of the company help us to plan for growth now, so the software we create will scale up with you.
Our level of documentation is second to none, and this is sorely needed in this business segment, as it was usually a "crazy ride" to get here, and non-critical items such as planning and documentation that were left out originally has become much more important. Knowledge sharing and transfer becomes a much greater expense in both time and resources, because with more employees, there is more turnover, promotions, retirements, etc. - and the time to bring them up to working speed becomes a drain on time and resources without proper documentation.
We don't just build specs, then disappear and write code. Instead, we review with you regularly as we go, making sure that every base is covered from design aspects to business rules and security. Although we work from a plan and timeline, we are agile, and able support mid-market companies strongly in “crunch” times. Our communications feature unmatched transparency, providing security and confidence to executives who do not deal in IT, software design, and application development regularly. We incorporate the latest in mobile and cloud technologies on a variety of platforms.
With Palm Beach Software Design, you receive the competence of experienced software developers and business people, the talent and tightness of a hand-picked LOCAL programming team – employees, not contractors, working in the same office, with the accountability and integrity of an owner-operated business.
