Custom Development Needs 3 Things
Apparel retailers know that there are times when the clothing off the rack just doesn’t fit right for certain people. Someone with longer arms than average might need special tailoring to make a suit jacket fit correctly, for example. A person who uses a wheelchair may need specific adaptations to their clothing because they stay in a sitting position all the time. Custom development in retail management software is very similar to these situations.
Listen To The User Carefully
Someone who cannot wear clothing unless it has been adapted to their needs knows exactly where it doesn’t fit. The person who is tailoring the clothing to fit that particular person needs to listen to what the wearer is saying about the fit and pay attention to where it pinches or is uncomfortable. The tailor who ignores the person wearing the clothing loses customers because the clothing isn’t what they need or want.
ChainDrive’s custom development team listens and observes the problems a client wants to resolve before proposing a solution. Questions are asked. The answers are discussed. New options may be suggested, but only after the custom development team understands the situation. This ensures an accurate measurement of the client’s “size” and needs.
Know The Software Intimately
A professional tailor must know the tools and materials involved in making clothing that fits perfectly and can be worn for years. Familiarity with the characteristics of each component means the choices made will be optimal. If an existing garment can be tweaked to be perfect, there is no need to add time and expense to the project but if a new pattern has to be created it can be done.
ChainDrive’s custom development team also knows the tools and materials involved with the software platform. Because they know the software intimately, they know where a standard component will work for a client, where it needs a few tweaks to be perfect, and when something must be built from the ground up. This keeps costs down without skimping on quality or the client’s preferences.
Adapt The Software Accordingly
The goal of custom tailoring is a garment that fits the wearer perfectly and enables them to be comfortable and appropriate in specific situations. Every decision on design, material, and application is geared toward this goal.
The goal of ChainDrive’s custom development team is software that enables the client to manage their retail, wholesale, or warehouse business optimally. This means every decision on components, processes, and functionality is geared toward success for the client.
