Ready-made or out-of-the-box software is something you can buy, install and begin to use immediately, like MS Office, Photoshop, or Adobe Acrobat Reader. Such programs are made for general use and can not be modified according to your wishes.
Ready-made software, also called commercial software, ranges from Microsoft Office suite to large enterprise applications that perform such tasks as accounting, manufacturing, and selling a company's products and services.
Ready-made products are targeted at a wide range of consumers and as a consequence, have a unified design and a standard build.
The main disadvantage of ready-made software is that it might not meet your company's unique needs. Prices of ready-made software are usually significantly lower. To get future updates of ready-made software we have to pay.
Ready-made software incorporates all the features experts think you need. For example, an off-the-shelf accounting app will provide you with an opportunity to write cheques and keep accounting records along with other functions.
