What are the options for a company wanting to deploy large software systems :  

  1. Buy a readymade product (canned software) and try to adjust your organization's work according to it; and after sometime when it becomes painful, scrap it and start all over again with enormous loss.
  2. Visualise and create specifications document and get system delivered in a few months by programmers and live with it. (rarely, a complete visualisation is possible and the fool-proof documentation is time consuming and a pain. involved in house team has to be well versed in both business processes, computers and data security aspects and so on ).
  3. Have a reputed software house with in-depth knowledge of your kind of business -- "a business consultant cum software developer" -- as partner in progress who takes care of all the needs in an ongoing basis.
     This is where c-soft excels and beats every-other mode of solution; with its 14 years of association with leaders of publishing and distribution in India virtually as their own software and services provider.

Why C-SOFT's Systems are so Successful and Users More than Satisfied ? What is the SECRET?   

With Retainership approach, the client does not have to pay every time he want a change, improvements in the software thru which the user, company, client or supplier can benefit. It could be additional MIS, new feature to take care of changing business scenario etc.

Normally for software changes, the change specifications are documented, quotations are asked, processed / negotiated, sanction is sought, money is allocated, order is placed with advance money and then the software modifications start with a great delay.

More often than not, due to this long formal process of chasing it thru various stages, the originator of even a small bright idea thinks twice and the useful idea dies down or is postponed inordinately until a large number of such changes are collected and one big chunk of order is placed. The result is system remains obsolete and users suffering & cribbing about it.

In C-SOFT's Retainership Approach all this red tape is completely 'eliminated'. Retainership fee covers all such software changes from time to time. Every user is encouraged to pool in bright ideas to make the system 'perfect'. All such changes are readily incorporated. The CSOFT's SYSTEM ever remains 'young' and quickly responding to users and business needs. This is the secret of happiness of our clients ... And that's how they have retained us as their 'own employees' for as many as 14 years. They have happily learnt that there cannot be a better or more economical solution than CSOFT's Retainership.
