Organizations feel torn between developing a custom solution and picking a commercial ‘off-the-shelf’ software. The decision is not easy, and the pros have to be weighed for specific use cases. However designing the custom solutions tend to be expensive and risky.
How do we do it
Magneto for e-commerce
The intuitive and versatile CMS, the mobile-ready configuration, powerful infrastructure, easy third-party integrations and other advanced Magneto features help our clients launch online stores in no time.
Workday for HCM
Right from compensation to time tracking and payroll, Workday puts organizations ahead of the curve. We help our clients customize it for a skill-based talent strategy, people analytics and automation.
Content Management Systems
Clients who churn large amounts of content, need ways to have version control, author management, publishing ease and so on. We use leading CMS systems to help put the best practices in place.
Rocket Chat for Text Communication & Collaboration
When our clients want to improve team productivity, we recommend a Rocket Chat enabled solution. It helps control communication, manage data and empower collaboration with real-time chat and conferencing.
WebRTC for Communication (Audio, Video & Messaging)
WebRTC is a leading tool to enable real-time communication between browsers and devices. We can help customize or integrate it into your systems to help you with better peer-to-peer communication.
Challenges & Solutions
COTS vendors spread their costs across customers, reducing TCO (total cost of ownership) for each. The ROI is also much higher as we access fitment and implement the best match.
Most COTS solutions come with high-end features which are expensive to develop if we go the custom way. Borrowing them is prudent. We recommend COTS also because it gives you features you don’t envision now but may need in future.
When you rush to develop apps, they may have bugs and testing eats into the launch time. Using a mature COTS cuts down these steps and lets you go live with quick modifications and adaptations.
When our first version was launched, it was an instant hit but soon we realised we needed a robust technology architecture to meet the customer demands. We spent numerous hours with Sparity team discussing the current limitations of our system and the long term vision. In 6 months time, Sparity delivered an end-end solution from user centric design to a microservices based architecture that is not only robust but also scalable and flexible.

Whether working on support or new projects, Sparity always provides excellent customer service, quality development and exceptionally fast response. Their partnership provides Boxercraft with the flexibility to scale up or down as needed and provides access to a talent pool and skill level that we cannot achieve on our own. As our business changes, Sparity changes with us.
