Development of specialized software

Specialized software systems or solutions are finished end products that offer a complete service in a specific area. They typically offer services to groups of users, and users may be geographically distant and from different organizations. Software solutions or systems have two main users: administrators who set the system parameters, distribute rights to users, access levels, virtual groups, objects and characteristics to them, rights to use the services and users - they use the system as its intended purpose is created.

Developing a more complex software system requires embedding a number of specialized algorithms into it. When a certain level of complexity is reached, the system moves to modular construction – it is divided into functional modules that can work independently and construction is done module by module.


The most common need for such systems is seen in businesses in which a high degree of optimization and automation of a number of basic processes can be achieved:

  • Document flow
  • Process, task, project management
  • Finance and accounting
  • Resource management
  • Inventory and warehouse stock
  • Schedules and Teams
  • Logistics and geographic locations
  • Analysis and predictions
  • Billing, payment documents

A process for developing specialized software

The typical phases or stages for developing and implementing a specialized software system of medium complexity (up to 500 users, 10 processes, 500 objects, billing, CRM functions, ERP functions,  WMS systems, e-services for all users, etc.) are as follows:

  1. An initial discussion to clarify the objectives
  2. High level analysis - phasing, budgets, complexity, dependency, modules, sequence, timelines
  3. Drafting detailed requirements
  4. Solution description - way of implementation
  5. Development in a test environment
  6. Feedback and fixes
  7. Tests
  8. Integration
  9. Commissioning
  10. Support
