I am Brad Hammond, owner and principal architect and software engineer.

No smoke and mirrors: Currently I am a one man shop. Established in 2014, On-Demand Software Solutions Inc. is a registered Corporation filed in the State of Iowa. I elected a corporation structure to protect the client from misclassification liability insuring that On-Demand Software Solutions Inc., is a separate legal entity under which is in a contract with a client. This separation of client and On-Demand Software Solutions Inc., insures that Brad Hammond, Managing Director of On-Demand Software Solutions Inc., cannot be considered as an employee of the client organization, "A director of a corporation is not an employee with respect to services performed as a director" (common law definition used by the IRS). In addition to this, if we enter into an agreement, that agreement will follow the common law rules.

On-Demand Software Solutions Inc., is a software engineering, consulting and staffing company for small to mid-sized businesses. We have the talent, skill sets, and the tools and equipment to build high quality software solutions. We offer short-term project work or long-term part-time services. From a couple weeks a year, to a few hours every month, and up to a few days every week, we provide on-site business analytic, architectural design, enterprise software development, and implementation and support services.

Make or Buy?

Many organizations struggle with deciding between off-the-self products or a custom solution. A simple answer is if it’s core to your business, a custom solution can develop strategic advantages. For example, a construction business must define unique processes and create strategic capabilities that it completes on and that customers’ value. An off-the-shelf accounting system is not core to the business so a buy choice may be better in this case. Buying a vanilla off-the-self construction solution will create a vanilla off-the-self construction company however.

Take Your Business To The Next Level

You know your business. The products and services that are produced have your name on them. The blood, sweat, and tears you put in over the years have made your business successful. From the beginning, you have evolved the processes and procedures to produce an acceptable level of quality your customers expect. You grew your small business into a respectable organization by duplicating your business model and expanding. The policies, processes, and procedures are consistent, repeatable, and sustainable throughout the life-cycle of turning raw materials into a finished product. That finished product meets or exceeds your customers’ expectations with respect to cost, quality, and convenience.

Fundamentally, you compete on varying degrees of cost, quality, and convenience. If your target market values quality above all else, than values convenience second, and then cost third, your policies, processes, and procedures must reflect this value proposition. To create an acceptable value proposition, you must manage resources and measure inputs, processes, and outputs. Continuing with the original quality, convenience, cost value proposition, you will set higher priorities for quality raw materials, repeatable processes, and measure output quality. The costs that go into a high quality product must be managed to insure acceptable margins. Other resources such as core capabilities, inventory management, warehousing, distribution, sales, and customer support must also be managed carefully. Mismanagement of resources will diminish your value proposition in your customers’ eyes. Economist define the law of diminishing returns as the lack of investment results in loss of value.
