When compared to package software custom software is more expensive. It is because during the development stages, the client adds so many ideas. When software development passes to next stages, it undergoes vast changes and while comparing the initial sketch and process flow sketches, the changes feel to be unpredictable. Software developer has to analyse the client changes and understand before adding the changes into the existing process. Sometimes it may consume time to get the process on flow. It depends upon how complicated the changes are specified by the client.
Package software are readymade and easily available when compared to custom software development. Once packaged software is developed for many users we are only paying for its services and actually we are not owners of packaged solutions. It is simply installed in computers and we start working on it.
