The design and development of Windows desktop software apps, services and tools which make desktop users more productive.
SOFTWARE & APP DESIGN
Designers of software, apps and tools which make users more productive and have the potential to save your business time and money.
Software can solve problems, improve efficiency and create opportunities within your business, so whether you are a start-up business needing a marketing database or a long established manufacturing company needing a comprehensive production management system, we offer a flexible and affordable software design service.
Bespoke software applications can be designed to solve a wide range of common business challenges, such as
Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
A Customer Relationship Management (CRM) application can help you keep track of your leads, customers and associated data, plus importantly allow you to analyse and report on your customer base – a good example being able to extract a segment of your customer database for targeted marketing.
Timesheet recording for any production level staff is an effective way of measuring performance. It becomes even more important if your staff are time-billed to your own clients. There are many intuitive ways for staff to complete timesheets to make it an effortless process.
Task & Project Management
Managing your projects and associated tasks within a software application can be an effective and powerful way to keep control of due dates, task assignments and gain overall visibility of progress and status in real-time.
A production management application can be implemented to record each step of your production process (no matter how specific) and with tight controls so that specific inputs can be made by users, and with data feeding through to other departments (such as logistics or customer service).
Job Costing & Invoicing
Costing and invoicing jobs to your end-customers through a single unified software application which is pre-loaded with your pricing structure and invoicing rules can save you a huge level of effort, and potentially give you the capability to create quotes and invoices while mobile.
Inventory & Stock Control
Inventory and stock control applications come in a number of forms, and can cater for the most basic of requirements (stock list and check in/out) to more comprehensive and intelligent requirements – such as full asset management with maintenance reminders, and intelligent stock control with automatic re-ordering.
We have worked with a clients across a diverse range of business sectors such as marketing, engineering and retail, designing and coding software for desktop, mobile and the web, and writing literally millions of lines of code.View more software design examples
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does bespoke software cost?
The cost can vary depending on the complexity of the project. It’s usually a good idea to get a specification written up first and then based on that you can typically get a more accurate estimate for the work involved. Our software work is usually based on a rate of £500 per day, or £2,000 per week, and this can multiply depending on the resources required.
Do you use version control?
Yes, all software we develop is managed and controlled via a source code management tool and we adopt both Mercurial and GIT depending on the type of project.
What software development process do you follow?
Most of our projects follow an Agile software development process, although it’s not a one size fits all approach and we can offer flexibility.
Which software programming languages and frameworks do you support?
Our developers are highly experienced in the following programming and scripting languages and frameworks (in alphabetical order):-
- ASP 3.0
