    Thank you very much.

    Could you re-formulate the sentence with your own words, I can't really make out what you mean.

    The company has more or less limited resources (such as material, money, employees etc.) and so the services must be adapted in such a way that they are suitable for the company needs and that the company can afford it with regard to its resources.

    How about:

    Our services are individually tailored to meet the needs of / to suit the requirements of company resources.

    Do you mean the services are made to meet the needs of every individual, since they are individually customized / customized to meet the needs of each individual company?

    customized means- made according to the specifications of an individual (physical person)

    Re: proofreading

    Does it mean that "customized" cannot be used when talking about a company? Such as "customized organization of processes in a company"? Do I have to say "tailored organization of processes"?

    Re: proofreading

    I believe both will do, actually.
    How about this one?

    Our services are individually customized/tailored to meet the resource needs of the company / of companies.

    The verb customize has 2 meanings:

    Meaning #1: make to specifications
    Synonyms: custom-make, customise, tailor-make


    Meaning #2: make according to requirements
    Synonym: customise

    I'm learning, too..
