F1 Solutions' Accelerate team can re-invigorate your legacy system, enhance their functionality, and potentially move them to newer, less expensive platforms. Our experts can analyse your existing systems and re-engineer them to be more efficient. They can adapt them to operate from the cloud making them more versatile and scalable, so grow with your business. We manage modernisation from inception through to post-implementation review.
A win for you with fewer resources needed for maintenance, and future-proofed, modernised systems to uplift your productivity and drive down costs.
Custom software development to meet your specific business needs
If you have a problem to solve or competitive advantage to leapfrog your competition, custom software development is most likely the answer.
Off-the-shelf products can be perfect. Sometimes they’re configurable and can be adapted for your environment. But commercial-off-the-shelf solutions often lack flexibility. They may require extensive custom development to operate the way you want or how you want to integrate with your other applications. Even then you may not have all of the functionality you need and your cost of maintenance has considerably increased.
Don’t settle for a lesser solution.
Our F1 Solutions' Accelerate expert application development team can work with you to build a modern, secure solution that grows and adapts to meet your changing needs. We can support that solution with affordable ongoing maintenance and upgrades as needed. Best of all we will make the solution configuration driven so the need to make changes to the underlying code is dramatically reduced. We can train your staff to make sure they’re taking full advantage of the solution’s capability.
Our experience is your saviour. We know how to navigate the myriad of technical platforms and design approaches, to build a just-right solution for you.
Our business analysts will spend time with you to understand your unique needs. They’ll work with our technical experts and competent software developers to design a solution that fits within your budget and into your environment or in the cloud if this is your preference.

Over the last 25 years, we have developed numerous applications, of different sizes, complexity and approaches. We've distilled this knowledge into a handy guide that captures some tips and tricks to help you develop better software.
F1 Solutions' Accelerate FAQ
What are the advantages of moving my application to the cloud?
When you move your software applications to the ‘cloud’ you no longer need physical servers and hardware – reducing your hardware acquisition and maintenance costs. The cloud service provider manages your application databases and their upgrades – so you have less downtime. A cloud environment allows you to easily increase or decrease your storage and processing capacity for known peaks and troughs in usage patterns. This flexibility saves you money and improves performance.
Cloud-hosted applications have better security, and ongoing upgrade costs are reduced as these costs are shared by all subscribers to the cloud platform, through the cloud licensing fees. An example of this is Microsoft Office 365 – which you can now access through an online subscription, and upgrades are seamless.
What do we mean by agile methodologies or agile development?
An agile approach to software development is a stepwise or iterative approach. The solution is developed in small chunks with regular reviews by clients. The ongoing evaluation means that the development team can respond quickly to any changes that are needed and adapt the product along the way. It allows flexibility in the ultimate design of the product and faster delivery of what is inevitably a better solution than one that is only evaluated after it is fully developed.
Why work with a bespoke software development company?
Successful businesses depend upon good software. When software that you can buy in a box (off-the-shelf software) doesn’t quite meet your needs, then a bespoke software development company can work with you to provide software consultancy and custom design a solution and tailor it to your exact requirements.
Bespoke software applications increase productivity in the workplace by reducing repetitive tasks and streamlining standard user practices. When your software aligns with your goals and automates your business practices, you’ll have less manual interventions, reduced need for supervision, and fewer errors. What’s more, bespoke software can be designed to integrate with your existing applications, and to adapt to your foreseeable, future operations.
Are there areas in your organisation that could benefit from automation? Would an improved software solution deliver an enhanced experience to your customers? Would you like to have better insights into your data to help you with decision making? If you’ve answered yes to one or more of these questions, then you can benefit from bespoke software development. Contact us today, to learn more about how F1 Solutions Accelerate and our bespoke software solutions can improve your business productivity.
How much does custom software cost?
The beauty of custom software development is that each solution is unique. Costs will vary, depending on the complexity and functionality needed. With each project bringing different challenges, we will provide an accurate price estimate after we have identified the primary requirements for your software. If you would like to learn more about how much a custom software development project would cost, get in touch.
