What we offer
Trusted & Experienced

We are an innovative and intelligent bespoke software development provider. We are a Microsoft Gold Partner with skilled and experienced teams of business analysts, software engineers and project managers, displaying a proven track record of designing and developing effective and robust bespoke software solutions. Our strong track record in custom software development spans across multiple industries, from manufacturing to pharmaceuticals and oil and gas, with projects ranging from the likes of secure government platforms, to large-scale consumer facing web applications, ensuring that we are able to deliver effective, scalable and robust solutions that match unique requirements, timescales and budgets.

Collaborative Process

We place a strong focus on the value of collaboration from the offset and throughout the bespoke software development project process. Prior to commencing custom software development projects, we aim to work with your project leads and key stakeholders in order to gain a thorough understanding of business processes, workflows and operations to allow us enable us to fully participate in the analysis of your project requirements, ensuring that each piece of functionality is clearly aligned with business objectives. This collaborative approach continues throughout the bespoke software development process, with our teams maintaining constant communication to gain clarity on new and existing requirements.

Transparent Working

Alongside our focus on collaboration is our focus on the value of transparency throughout bespoke software development projects, as we understand that in the majority of cases, we are managing business-critical processes and data. Allowing you full visibility across projects, we allow you to choose the level of engagement most appropriate to your situation; from participating in planning sessions, to reviewing feature backlogs and test results. In order to be transparent, we use standard platforms such as Microsoft Visual Studio Team Services Online, enabling you to track development progress, clarify requirements and suggest changes and additions to your custom software development project.

Agile Methodology

We use an agile project management approach to bespoke software development projects, specifically we use the agile framework Scrum. We believe that the key to a successful custom software development project is the acceptance that change will happen as a natural part of the bespoke software development process; whether this change is a result of feedback from a product prototype, a change in internal business processes, or a change in the marketplace, the use of an agile development process allows us to plan for these changes and adapt as required.

Onshore Delivery

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

Customer Support

We provide a high-level of ongoing, dedicated support from the offset, and throughout the bespoke software development project process, as we understand that in most project cases we are managing and automating business-critical processes and data. Our support level begins at the initial stages of the custom software development process, working with customers to define documentation, training and deployment strategies, including staged roll-outs prior to release; as well as ongoing support after your tailor-made solution has gone live to ensure optimum performance and business continuity.

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.
