If you’ve got a unique business opportunity or problem that needs solving within your company, custom software might be the answer for you. Out-of-the-box software might not be flexible enough or suited to what you need. A full-stack software development team will be able to take your idea and run with it. Soon your vision will be a reality that benefits your business daily!

Looking for more reasons to consider using our custom software development team? Here are a few we think you’ll enjoy!


When you engage a custom software development team such as Smile IT in Brisbane, it’s normally because you’ve run into a regularly recurring problem slowing down your processes. You’ve probably tried standard software to help, but they haven’t been exactly what you’re looking for. A custom software solution is built from the bottom up, specifically made to solve your problem. It’s built by experts who use a unique methodology to identify and define the issue, and design and implement the technology to solve it.

Cyber Security

When you use out-of-the-box applications, you’re joining possibly countless users of the same program from all around the world. That means a lot of people understand and know how to use it, including potentially dangerous hackers. They have access to the software and know how to manipulate it. If you have your own unique custom software, it’s far less susceptible to hackers because so few people know the software implemented. Stronger cybersecurity is a direct result.

Cloud Scalability

Custom software development can be integrated with the cloud for maximum scalability. This allows for flexibility for your business, allowing it to grow upwards or downwards as required without the need to purchase expensive hardware. Our Brisbane software developer team will be able to guide you through this process if you want to chat with one of them.


Standard software often comes with integration limitations when it comes to working with your existing systems. Custom applications can be adapted to the software you currently use by the software developer. This’ll save you a lot of time and a lot of headaches down the track.

Software Developer Relations

Custom software development means you form a relationship with the software developer, who invests their time and skill into the development of your company. If your business is operating successfully, it means they have done their job properly. Your level of technical customer support is going to be much higher and more personable than if you use standard software. Your success is their success, and they’re going to work hard to achieve that for you.

Solid ROI

The initial costs of custom software development may be higher than a standard solution. But most retail software these days runs on a subscription basis, so when you take into account the costs over time, they work out pretty expensive. Also, having a setup built that completely caters to your needs is a better return on investment than one that maybe only partially caters to them.




Our goal with JetLabs is to create cost-effective solutions that quickly translate into business value. With this in mind, our software development philosophy is based on the following elements:

Lean – our solutions are designed to remove complexity from processes and simplify work methods. They’re cloud-based to support accessibility and scalability and formed on a tried and tested internet technology stack.

Reusability – a modular approach to product architecture and coding allows us to develop robust, highly maintainable products that share a common core. We can rapidly develop new applications on a single platform that is continually being improved.

Scalability – we ‘containerise’ our apps and use a system of automated deployment, scaling and management.  This ensures our products are delivered and orchestrated consistently across the cloud and different operating systems.



The highly trained Brisbane software developers at Smile IT certainly know their stuff. Their expertise ranges from the Internet of Things to the following technologies, which can be leveraged to create ground-breaking products:

Python – a widely used and highly extensible cross-platform development language;

Django – a Python-based web framework that supports rapid design. (Incidentally, it’s the technology behind platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest);

PostgreSQL – one of the world’s most popular enterprise-class database management systems;

Kubernetes – a container orchestration system for automating application deployment, scaling and management;

React – a software library for creating interactive UI’s for web applications.

What Do Web Developers Do?

Web developers aim to build a product that solves a problem or need for their client. This could be a website or custom software development in the form of a mobile application or desktop app. This software consists of a front end and a back end:

The front end is the visible part of the application which is interacted with by users.  A frontend developer will use their skills in programming languages and web technologies to build something that is aesthetically pleasing and easily comprehensible.

The back end is the brain of the application, the technology that powers the frontend. Backend developers create code that ensures the frontend performs the functions it’s intended to. They’re largely responsible for testing, debugging and ensuring optimum integration of the software.

Full-stack developers are well-versed in both the front end and back end of websites. They have a solid knowledge of the entire web development spectrum and can guide and implement the entire process.

The Smile IT Brisbane web development team offers full-stack development to create custom software and digital solutions for your business, whether you’re in Brisbane or beyond. Get in touch today for an IT consultation or just a chat about what we can do for you.
