"Shrink Wrapped Software" is a term often used to describe software that is sold as a commodity. While a great deal of software is bespoke and only intended to be used by a limited audience, shrink wrapped software often has a broader appeal to a wider user base, be it industry specific, a niche market, or for general usage. In recent years, the shift has been towards electronic delivery of such software as it allows immediate purchase and greater control over licensing and registration along with reduced packaging and distribution costs.
Examples include new paradigms on established ideas like eNoteFile, packaged line-of-business software for niche markets where existing packages fall short, or porting of existing applications to new platforms like Microsoft Windows Mobile 7 devices.
If you have an idea for an application that will fill a gap in the market, change the way we use computers or be the next 'killer app' for an emerging platform Kiandra can help. We can develop the software, run it through focus groups to gain and respond to feedback, cater to traditional and electronic distribution methods and provide ongoing support for your customers.
In our experience it's important to recognise that there are several key differences between custom software development and shrink wrapped applications.
With custom software development you are normally programming against a specific environment. This might be a web application to be run on a single web server, or an office accounting package to be run by 10 users in an enterprise, all of whom have exactly the same configured PC as provisioned by their IT department. With shrink wrapped software the hardware and operating system you will be deploying on can vary significantly, so your software must be tested to run on every configuration to ensure maximum compatibility.
