If the software you are creating does not infringe up the claims of the patent, and proves novel / uniqueness or even obviousness, then you should be ok. However, contact a patent attorney first! Software / Method patents have proven the new Gold Rush on American Businesses. Methods / Software patents are dangerous, so watch out!!
Likewise, do a search of that patent number in the USPTO or Google Patents and check citations / references mentioning that patent and use keyword searches that are used within your technology. For example "Clamps, database, upload" and such.
Remember, patents are about the CLAIMS. If you infringe upon one or more claim of a patent, then you risk getting sued.
Hindsight is not 20/20 when you get sued for patent infringement. You must do as much homework as you can up front because not knowing is not good enough. A Patent Holder / Patentee can get away with not knowing about prior art, but you can't get away with not knowing about their patent. Its that miserable when you get sued.
My advice is to set aside substantial funds to fight lawsuits against patents and also be prepared to pull the plug at any time. The less assets you have in your company, the less the patent holder can take. This is why we have so many "startup companies" built by experienced, previous business owners.
Be prepared. You can't win a patent infringement lawsuit unless you're a huge company or filthy rich. The software you may be building is great, but if it infringes, it will be short lived.
Finally, if you have found prior art, such as an enforceable patent, you may want to contact the patentee start looking into licensing options. Most of the time, licensing agreements come from lawsuits, and they are usually in favor of the patentee because they whittled you down via a patent lawsuit and have you backed into a corner and seem to have leverage on you at this point.
The most important advice is to seek assistance from a patent attorney, usually at astronomical costs
