Market Ready Solutions COTS

We provide Market Ready Solutions using Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) technology. Our solutions are designed to help you stay ahead of the competition, reach your target audience, and achieve your desired outcomes in the most efficient and effective manner possible.

What is Market Ready Solutions?

Market ready solutions are standardised software applications that are mass-produced, with scope for customisation and some integration. Also known as off-the-shelf software, they are convenient and inexpensive and the marketplace for these solutions is growing rapidly with flexible solutions. They are generally designed for mass markets, offering a comprehensive set of features to streamline operations through a ready-made platform that is configurable.

As modern cloud architecture is generally more cost-effective to maintain and has lower set-up costs in comparison to traditional on-premise applications we only work with software platforms that are SaaS-based. SaaS, Software as a Service, SaaS is a software licensing and delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis usually based on consumption or number of users/units and is also centrally hosted, therefore secure and resilient to failure.

Whilst these platforms do not require any programming development to set up, they still require significant effort to be configured and implemented successfully into a business. We are agnostic on solutions and can work with any platform and have also a large list of popular platforms we already support.

  • Considerations
  • When trying to gain a competitive advantage, these solutions are not always the most suitable as others in the market will have access to the same functionality and products.

  • These solutions can become inefficient cost-wise once companies grow to a certain scale, after which bespoke solutions can be more cost-effective.

  • If a business requires very specific functionality that isn’t useful to the mass market, there can be limitations in using off-the-shelf platforms.

“The platform has been critical to helping us track key activities and performance indicators across our business, from leasing activities to reactive & planned maintenance. To gather and track this data manually would require a significant number of staff hours across all sites as well as at head office, which in turn does not support the drive for operational efficiency or our lean management model. I strongly believe our technological capabilities set Way of Life apart from its competitors and will be essential to any future scalability, as we grow and pursue third-party contracts. We have to recognise that technology is continually evolving, and it is important we continue to develop our tech strategy and invest in our platform, so we remain at the forefront.”
