When you realize you need to buy something you probably simply jump into your car, go to the store, and find it on the shelf. Easy, right? Exactly! However, if you need to buy something more specific, for example shirts with a custom design, date, name, or any other specific product you won't be able to find it at just any store.
To buy something with a custom date, design, or event you'll need to contact a designer and have them create what you need. It'll most likely be more expensive and take more time to get into your hands. But in the end, you'll have exactly what you want and need!
Off-the-shelf software is something you’re able to go to the “store", bring home, and put to use right away without any waiting time. As we all know, it’ll probably be a lot cheaper than trying to get something created for yourself individually.
What is Off-the-Shelf Software
Off-the-Shelf software is something that many businesses find helpful. Just like the same kind of plastic cups on the shelf at the grocery store are used by hundreds of people and not just you. Likewise, you’ll find that Off-the-Shelf software is easily used by hundreds of businesses and individuals as needed. It’s already created and you can put it to use immediately.
Since Off-the-Shelf software is used by many companies the pricing is lowered and it’s much more affordable for the average user.
It’s also highly convenient since you’re able to quickly walk in, buy, and put it all to use right away!
In order for you to have a better understanding of off-the-shelf software, we’ll look at a few examples below.
