What we offer
Experienced & Proven

We have extensive experience in developing innovative and scalable bespoke business software solutions, with a proven track record of designing and delivering effective and robust business-critical projects across multiple sectors. Our development experience spans many years, across many sectors, from manufacturing, to pharmaceuticals and oil and gas; delivering high quality projects, from secure government platforms, to large scale consumer facing web applications, ensuring that we are trusted to deliver an effective tailor-made solution to match specific requirements, budgets and timescales.

Collaborative Alliance

In order to develop a custom business software solution that perfectly matches the wants and needs of your organisation, we aim to collaborate with your key stakeholders and project leads from the offset to gain a clear understanding of you business processes, operations and workflows, in order to ensure that each piece of functionality is clearly aligned with your business objectives. This focus on collaboration continues throughout the development life-cycle of your bespoke business system through constant communication streams to ensure clarity of new and existing requirements.

Transparent Processes

We believe that the key to a successful bespoke business system development project is the use of a transparent approach, allowing you full visibility across software development projects. We allow you to choose the level of engagement most appropriate to your position and circumstance; from participating in planning sessions, to reviewing feature backlogs and test results, with the use of platforms such as Microsoft Visual Studio Team Services to enable you to track development progress, clarify requirements, provide feedback and suggest changes and additions to the project.

Agile Method

We use an agile project management approach to developing bespoke business software projects, as we understand that change may happen as a natural part of the development process, as with working in changing organisations; specifically we use the agile framework Scrum. We believe that the key to a successful custom business software development project is the ability to plan for this change, whether this be a change in the marketplace, a change in business processes or a change as a result of feedback from a prototype, the agile method allows us to adapt as required.

Business-Critical Support

Within the process of bespoke business software development, we understand that in the majority of cases we are dealing with an organisation's business-critical data and processes, therefore we focus on providing a high level of support from the offset of the project. Our focused support includes working with customers to define documentation, deployment and training strategies, including staged roll-outs prior to release; as well as ongoing dedicated support after the project is live, in order to ensure optimum performance and continuity of business-critical processes.

Onshore Resources

We are a UK based bespoke business software development company, with all of our development teams designing, building and supporting our innovative and robust custom business software solutions here in the UK, at either our Leeds or London offices. We believe there is benefit to having a development partner here in the UK, as working in the same country, on the same timescales, provides us with the strong framework to handle the adaptive nature of agile bespoke business software development projects, with the ability to ensure that all key members of the project can easily collaborate and communicate with each other.

Our process
Project Review / Feasibility
01
Firstly, we have an initial conversation to run through your project ideas and challenges, get to know your business and discuss your current infrastructure to decide if a bespoke solution is the best approach.
Requirements Review & Backlog Definition
02
After analysing and defining your project requirements and roadmap, we work to define a backlog of features and prioritise using the MoSCoW method. The backlog is then reviewed and features are planned into iterations.
Development & Testing
03
We then begin developing your software application using the agile methodology, focusing on communication and collaboration, with shared ownership, ensuring that your end solution delivers the greatest value.
Migration
04
If your project requires, we plan, manage and schedule the migration process from one operating environment to another, ensuring the successful delivery of your project with minimal downtime and adverse risk.
Release & Post Release Support
05
As part of our end-to-end service, we support you in the release of your application and deliver reliable and secure hosting environments to suit your requirements in order to maximise your systems performance.
Ongoing Support
06
After your application has gone live, we offer tailored support agreements based on your requirements, making sure that your solution remains reliable and performant and continues to drive business value.
