Our Hassle-Free Process
Developing a bespoke software solution demands a thorough and precise approach, and we at Belighted have honed our methodology to guarantee outstanding outcomes:
In this foundational stage, we evaluate if our expertise is a good match for your specific bespoke software project needs. A consultation with a Belighted account manager allows us to dive deep into the complexities of your project, grasping your team’s goals and crucial product specifications. Following this discussion, we compiled a summary for our product team to confirm technical feasibility, budget, and timeline.
The result? A detailed proposal outlining the features, expected budget, and a launch roadmap. While we refine the finer details in the scoping phase, this stage ensures you have the confidence to move forward. A refundable deposit at this point secures your PM’s time for the next stage.
Our aim here is to precisely define the features and structure of your bespoke software product. Early clarification speeds up our development process and ensures your expectations are met. You will work closely with a designated Product Manager from our team, going through the entire product flow. This stage allows for critical decisions regarding feature inclusion and budget considerations. We prefer a streamlined approach, but you have the option to enhance features if desired. Following extensive technical research, we document all necessary prerequisites.
The outcome is a detailed scope document that outlines users, pages, and features, along with a timeline and budget. This phase transforms your vision into a concrete product blueprint.
During the design phase, our UX designer converts the feature requirements identified in the scoping phase into interactive mockups and a design plan. This ensures that the designs are not only customized to your unique bespoke software features but also adhere to the best UX practices for the subsequent development phase.
Once integrated with the written content, the scope document becomes your project’s blueprint, ready for your review. Our Product Manager is available to make any required adjustments, ensuring the final plan aligns seamlessly with your vision and budget.
Develop & Build
The development phase begins with your dedicated Belighted team, including a lead developer, UI assembler, and QA specialist, all overseen by your Product Manager. The team works diligently through the detailed build plan, focusing on predetermined milestones and ensuring each feature is developed, tested, and refined.
By the end of this phase, you will have a fully developed bespoke software solution, rigorously tested by Belighted and prepared for your final review and launch.
Acknowledging that bespoke software solutions may need to adapt based on user feedback and evolving industry standards, we offer post-launch support to ensure your application consistently meets user needs and adheres to industry regulations. Whether you require one-time support for specific feature additions or ongoing support for regular updates and maintenance, we provide flexible options to ensure you have access to the Belighted team as needed, helping you achieve the best results from your bespoke software solution.
With Belighted, you're not just investing in software; you're investing in a future-proof solution that propels your business forward.
Understanding the financial aspect of bespoke software development is crucial, and at Belighted, we ensure that our pricing strategy is as clear and straightforward as possible. Here’s our approach:
We aim to provide clear and precise cost estimates to avoid any unexpected financial surprises. Projects can vary widely in scope and complexity, with simpler solutions generally ranging from $10,000 to $25,000, and more intricate, comprehensive systems potentially costing between $30,000 and $150,000 or more.
We initiate open and honest budget discussions from the very beginning, aligning the project’s scope with your financial capabilities. This proactive stance helps to avert unforeseen financial deviations, ensuring that you maintain control over your investment.
Every project has its unique set of challenges and complexities. While we strive for accuracy in our estimates, it’s important to recognize that estimation is a complex and nuanced process, influenced by various factors unique to your project.
We believe in a reverse approach to pricing, encouraging transparency about your budget so we can identify the most efficient way to deliver value. In the realm of software, a feature that appears similar on the surface can range dramatically in cost depending on the intricacies and expectations involved.
Our commitment is to ensure transparency, clarity, and collaboration at every stage of the pricing journey. Schedule a call with us now for a tailored pricing discussion, and let’s work together to bring your vision to life within your budget.

The cost of bespoke software development varies based on the complexity of the project, features required, and the duration of development. It's essential to think in terms of a monthly budget rather than a fixed one-off cost, as software development is an ongoing process that evolves with feedback and changing business needs.
Yes, we highly recommend considering a comprehensive maintenance package to ensure the longevity and optimal performance of your software. Maintenance in software development is multifaceted, encompassing corrective, preventive, adaptive, and evolutive aspects. Each plays a crucial role in the software’s lifecycle, addressing different needs and challenges that arise over time. They focus on keeping your application up-to-date with the ever-evolving external environments, such as new browser versions and updated security protocols. This is vital for maintaining compatibility and ensuring a seamless user experience. Without regular maintenance, addressing bugs and other issues can become increasingly complex and costly, especially if the application falls into an outdated state.
By choosing our comprehensive maintenance package, you’re not only ensuring quick and efficient bug resolutions but also proactively safeguarding your software against potential future challenges. This approach streamlines costs, enhances service delivery, and guarantees you have the support you need when you need it.
App security is achieved through various measures like adaptive maintenance packages, as aforementioned, which offer regular updates that check dependencies and known security vulnerabilities. Implementing ITIL establishes standardized processes for IT service management, including efficient incident management, change management, and problem resolution, further enhancing overall app security. GDPR compliance also aids in safeguarding user data and privacy by implementing stricter data protection measures, including user consent, data minimization, and secure storage and processing practices.
Belighted ensures that clients retain 100% IP ownership for the bespoke software solutions we develop for them.
