Why choose Efforwai to develop your cloud software?
- Yachting industry experience
Through our extensive case history and practical experience in the yachting industry, we advise on a wide range of topics to digitize processes and increase business efficiency.
As a result, we have developed nineteen (19) customized systems for our yachting customers, some of them very demanding.
We develop customized functionalities to make the digital system work for you and avoid duplication of information.
We have found with our customers that the greater the customization of the functionalities, the higher the utilization rate of the digital system.
A customized solution can seamlessly adapt as your workflows, user base and business needs and requirements change. The development team scales and adjusts the solution accordingly.
- You own the system
- Cost efficiency
Because you own the digital system, you don't have to wait for the SaaS vendor to perform updates or bug fixes, as your support team performs any changes or maintenance activities when the need arises, minimizing the risks of business process disruption.
Custom systems are usually associated with a higher price because of the heavy initial investment required to build the system. However, building a tailored solution can be more cost-effective in the long run.
- We help you with...
Administration time is reduced by streamlining many day-to-day processes, such as creating work orders from an accepted estimate or generating a pending to invoice alert when closing a work order or reaching an invoice milestone.

Convert your Excel files into a digital system.
Provide your employees with a digital tool.
Optimize repetitive tasks, such as allocating hours and materials to your work orders.
Receive billing alerts or invoices due for collection.

Custom vs off-the-shelf software
SaaS software is a robust tool that helps companies achieve real-time visibility in business processes, increase operational efficiency, and ensure cross-organizational data integrity, sharing, and collaboration.
However, not every SaaS platform can effectively address your business needs. Moreover, there are cases when none of the current off-the-shelf enterprise resource planning systems can offer the capabilities you seek.
The low entry price of SaaS solutions is attractive, but customizations and advanced support are expensive. In addition, there is little to no control over the solution and there are usually functionality gaps.
