How to translate "custom" into French (mais pas "personnalisation")

I am trying to translate into French a series of phrases along the lines of "custom(-built) report", "custom(-built) query", etc. but these are not customized according to individual user preferences, but according to their organization's needs. I am trying to use it in the sense of "built-to-organization's-specification" (not out-of-the-box, but not personalization either). In my world, "customized" = added in by the vendor, "configured" = added in by the user or admin, so it would help to end up with a term that avoids the sense of configuration.

Seeking French Comedies / Why Is Netflix Searching So Bad?

My wife and I greatly enjoy French comedies (recent examples inside). Netflix's proprietary Obfuscatron-4000 searching system has cleverly adapted to our viewing tastes by making French comedies difficult to identify and put in our queue. Can you recommend additional titles that are available on Netflix, either on disc or streaming? [more inside]
