Custom Software experts since 1996
If you have an Idea you want to bring to market or make your business work more efficiently for that competitive edge, a custom solution is often the answer.
Over more than 20 years, Mindvision has completed countless projects across a wide range of sectors. Our process with each project is to understand your business or idea, choose the right technology solution, then add our experience and magic to deliver a rock solid and cost effective solution.
Having MindVision as your technology partner means that you can rest easy knowing that you are in good hands. Our estimates are based on years of experience and when it comes to technical risk there is not much that we haven’t done before.
After your software is deployed we stay by your side with maintenance, support and extended warranty options. MindVision even hosts your new application for you and monitors it 24 x 7 so that you never miss a beat.
The MindVision in-house programming team have many skills but we pride ourselves on being a respected Ruby on Rails house. We choose “rails” for being so robust for long lasting business software while still being economical for small to medium enterprises.
Improve efficiency and reduce costs with a custom solution from an Australian Company
Off-the-shelf solutions that manage only part of your business and don’t fully integrate with your systems and processes result in inefficiencies. A custom system matched to your workflow with full integration will improve your customer service, and bottom line to give you a competitive edge.
Taking the dive into a custom software solution may seem daunting, but MindVision has the experience and proven capability to make sure you’re adding value to your business. We start by analysing your business to identify the best technological solution, and often recommend a staged deployment so that issues that are most urgent are handled first to maximise your return on investment.

When is custom software the best option?
If you end up with multiple methods of recording and tracking e.g. data base, spreadsheets, written notes etc., then chances are that a custom solution will add efficiency, save money and reduce the instances of things “falling through the cracks”.
Do I need to be a computer expert to commission custom software?
We don’t always recommend custom software. Sometimes our analysis has revealed an off the shelf solution that is perfect for your business.
Is custom software risky?
Over the years, we have rescued too many projects from stalemate after a substantial investment of money and time. The usual cause is a developer being dazzled by dollars and taking on a project beyond their capability.
Dealing with MindVision mitigates most technical risk simply because we have been developing software for over 21 years. It is rare that we are asked for something that we haven’t already done before!
Is custom software expensive?
One of the tests we apply is the “bang for buck” test. If solving the problem is going to cost more than the problem is really worth then we will tell you so. And we apply the bang for buck test not just to the software overall but also to the features it will contain.
What about Hosting?
What about a new business?
On the other hand if your business is projected to ramp up slowly and can be managed with spreadsheets etc., for a while, delaying custom software will give you a chance to refine and fully develop the business processes that you ultimately want software to manage for you.
I’ve got a great idea for a new product?
After that we will go away and kick your idea around internally around the whiteboard before presenting our first response.
Our first response will be an educated guesstimate on the budget that your product would need, how long it would take and issues that it might face. If we have information that your idea is not as strong or unique as you think, we will share it with you.
We call this a project evaluation and there is no charge.
How much do I need to be involved?
If your project is for a core operational system, you will need to allocate internal resources to support the development, training and deployment. That said, we can help by picking the right time of year to match your business as well as a rate of development that you can keep up with.
