Custom software development and technology delivering results
Bespoke Custom Software Solutions
When looking for a custom software development supplier, what do you look for?
A company that:
- has the experience to take your ideas to fruition?
- has a proven track record of delivering bespoke software?
- is agile and lean?
We have been developing custom software for 25 years and are proud of the legacy we’ve built in the industry. We have a history of custom software development that meets all kinds of challenges, for a wide variety of sectors and different company lifecycles.
What are the benefits of custom software development ?
Perhaps you’re not sure if a custom software solution is what you need? Perhaps there’s nothing on the market that fits the bill?
Custom software development gives your business greater flexibility than an out-of-the-box solution. It gives you total control over what is being developed and, what’s really important, the build will be incorporated with the rest of your business software so it integrate easily with your current systems and data flows. Custom software is designed to fit within your current operations and streamline your processes, rather than force you to adapt to a pre-built system which may not function exactly as you need it to.
Purchasing software as a service is expensive over time; what begins as a cost-saving option creeps up as more users are added and the years tick by. Bespoke software is an investment that will pay for itself. There aren’t any additional costs as the business grows.
Plus, there is also the option to own the software IP once development is complete, which negates any vendor lock-in issues.

Go to market quickly with Power Apps
Microsoft Power Apps enables us to custom deliver your wants and needs very quickly, creating a custom built app for a specific job that will integrate with other Microsoft products. For example, if you want a piece of software specifically for all employee onboarding, the newly developed on-boarding app will integrate with the HR system and other Office applications such as Outlook, Forms, Calendars, Contacts into a platform to make employee onboarding straightforward.
This kind of No-Code option is increasing in popularity as it ensures you build an MVP quickly and so go to market much quicker than you would traditionally.
Since Power Apps is cloud-based, it offers enhanced security features like multi-factor authentication and form-level security. Any app built through Power Apps can seamlessly integrate with any other Power Platform product and work natively with Dataverse or other third party data sources.
By having an app built this way, you can:
- Reduce the time-to-market
- Streamline processes quickly
- Improve customer satisfaction
- Enhance employee productivity
- Increase revenue
Our team includes:
An essential part of any successful project. Our stringent test processes are ISO 9001 certified, providing quality assurance before projects are deployed.
Keep the project on track both in terms of time, cost and deliverables by continually monitoring the project and budgets.
Work with you to understand your business objectives and project requirements ultimately creating a specifications document for your solution.
Because we are a smaller, leaner company than some other software houses, we enjoy the agility that that brings. But sometimes we feel the need to have a larger development team, so we are very lucky to bring in near-shore expertise to assist us in fulfilling selected projects. The core expertise is always UK-based, but this enables us to expand our development team when required.
Project definition and process:
A Discovery workshop enables all the stakeholders to have their say in how the custom software project should work from their perspective. User stories are created to aid the project design and development. A Discovery Workshop always takes place before the development process is commenced.
Systems health check
When undertaking a new custom software development project, we often, when relevant, look at the system that is currently being utilised, so that the technology we are building on is as efficient as possible and is future-proofed. This is where a Systems Health Check comes in. A systems health check is an audit analysis, to identify deficiencies and make recommendations on your existing system. Find out more about it on our overview page or download our Systems Health Check guide.
We’ve worked with a variety of different clients taking traditionally developed and hosted systems and building them to become cloud native.
We’ve got the experience and understanding
We understand the challenges and constraints involved in what can be some very unique requirements. We spend our days developing cloud based applications and migrating traditionally built systems to the cloud, working within very niche environments.
We promise an efficient, seamless process that offers so much more.
One client whom we worked with, wanted custom software that we knew would lend itself perfectly for the cloud. Post consultation, the application was developed to take advantage of the scaling potential and the elasticity. We created an app, hosted the system and integrated a video streaming service which proved to be immensely successful.
Building a cloud native application:
We built a cloud native application for this top 10 UK insurer. We originally built a risk assessment system for RSA as a traditionally hosted system. But we subsequently enhanced it with a new customer portal, that was secure and mobile accessible and was created specifically for the Azure hosting platform.
This became an award winning application.
We work with both Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Find out more about both of these powerful platforms and how they will work for you.
