Configurable versus Custom Software Solutions

Determining the best software for your organization can be tricky. here are a few common factors to consider when evaluating whether a configurable solution or a custom software is the right fit for your institution.



  • Flexible to meet your institution’s evolving needs with many integrations readily available.
  • Process changes are done quickly by the user. Add modules, or request additional modifications to suit your workflow any time.
  • Robust customer support comes standard. Most issues are resolved quickly.
  • Extensive training available to aid and enhance software’s features and usability.
  • Built upon rigid, direct specifications. Out-of-the-box solution is what you get. 
  • Changing processes requires lengthy development. As regulations change, usability becomes more of an issue. 
  • Comprehensive support is costly and takes additional time to train someone on your instance.
  • Costly and time consuming to develop new features or enhancements. Few, if any, integrations or add-ons available.
