So, we started this discussion with a little thing called profit. As you know, before you can rub your hands to see how much profit your company has made,
you need to eliminate costs from the equation. You don’t want to stumble on expenses or take them as part of the profit.
When developing software, you should prepare yourself to cover certain expenses. These, of course, depend on the nature of the software that is being created,
as well as the work of IT experts, designers, maybe a bit of research, all are part of your expenses. And ok, we hear you: at a first view,
you might think that it is cheaper to create billing software rather than buying one. But we beg to differ.
When you are taking on your developing expenses, you are perceiving them as investments, because through the application you are creating,
you are bringing in profit. Thus, you are covered.
You’ll say: Ok, but I can’t bring in profit as long as I don’t have a billing software system. And by the way,
weren’t you talking just now about need? Where did that go?
You are right, you can’t do without software, but then again, you can buy one. The idea is that you are creating a new one from scratch, in a limited amount
of time, simply to make a need shut up. Yes, you are going to improve it, no doubt about it. But it will be in time, generating extra costs as well as
the patience of your customers.
So, we ask you again. Are you sure that over time, after the initial version has been completed,
after all the revisions have been made, after fixing all issues, building your own billing software is, in fact, cheaper than buying one?
You don’t have to answer right away.
