SEO! The guaranteed way of generating genuine business enquiries!

Chances of an enquiry getting converted into business become 70% higher when your prospective client approaches you rather than you approaching them. It is obvious that the company that gets maximum enquiries gets the maximum business!

There’s a big difference when someone from your business development team calls someone (unknown entity) with the expectations of getting business, whereas if someone calls your business development team to enquire about your services/products. This can be achieved through the implementation of ‘Search Engine Optimization’ of the website.


Kalpak Solutions is proud to share that our client websites “Stonewood Ventures Pvt. Ltd.” and “Feet-up Holidays” achieved ranking on the first page of Google Search! It takes months of hard work and effort to rank higher on Google Search. The credit goes to our SEO experts, content writers, web developers and valuable inputs given by the client.

There’s a heavy competition out there on the internet for getting noticed by your prospect customers. There are many competitors out there doing Search Engine Optimization, and it’s certainly not an easy job to beat them and appear on Google Engine’s first page.

Custom or "Ready-to-use" software, where to invest, and why?

Today use of the software is essential, and everyone wants to use one. The question we are trying to answer is, "should I buy a ready-to-use software or go for custom software?"

You are probably already aware of the benefits a software system can bring to help business. The software enables you to reduce man-made errors and helps you minimize process times; it helps alert you about time delays, etc.

So, should you buy ready-to-use software or build custom software for your business? Let us consider each factor that will help you in making the important decision.

Modules / Features needed:

Ready-to-use software is aimed for a general audience and must carry a broad set of features/ modules. Whereas, with custom software, you can select the features you need now and don’t need to worry about extra features or too many confusing modules.

When you use off-the-shelf software (Ready-to-use software), you may get 60% features that you need, but you will also get 40% features that you don’t need. So, you will have to educate everyone on the team about not using those extra features.

When your requirements are mapped accurately, the gains from a software become multifold. If the requirements are not mapped, then it isn't easy to get the productivity you want from software.

Business process and software process:

Are you adopting the software to suit your processes, or are you adopting your business according to software? When you buy a Ready-to-use software, you must be very clear about the process and limitations (if any) that software has.

You may have a process different from your competitor, which is unique to your organization. Also, you may have some other business limitations (raw materials, locations, etc.) which impact your process. Also, you may have created a team that is used to working in a certain way.

Most of the software deployments fail because they do not account for changing the habit of uses. When you use custom software, the development team is going to speak to users first. Therefore, custom software has a better chance of being accepted by your organization. With Ready-to-use software, you have to check if your business process fits the way software is created. If there is a gap of even 10%, then you will have to find a way to fix the deficit or lose the 10% process.

Return On Investment (ROI):

Ready-to-use software may have a lower upfront cost. However, it is important to check the software's operational (running) cost and check how much it costs per user. Sometimes per users cost can actually be a lot more. Also, you will have to use features that are not needed, bringing your ROI down. With custom software, you can decide the budget, the number of features required, and create a solution that fits your organization. It may have initial costs higher than Ready-to-use software, but in the long run, you can get far better ROI.
