Bespoke contract and freelance development for web and database business systems

Services

Software development and custom built solutions

I provide custom or bespoke software development for Web and Microsoft based technologies. All Projects undertaken are completed and delivered on either Contract, Freelance or Fixed-Price basis, subject to an analysis of your project requirements.

Database driven applications

The majority of my development background has been specialising in Database driven applications and multi-user systems giving me the ability to provide the entire planning, designing and delivery of a whole range of business systems such as Project Management tools and Production Scheduling.

Process automation

Many businesses perform a lot of data-intensive work, but many of them often don't realise what could be automated with some careful planning.

Process Automation takes time-consuming and labour-intensive tasks such as dealing with endless paperwork or spreadsheets, managing them within a custom built application that can be used by your staff and customers.

By building a system around your process, you can bring all your information together and analyse and manipulate it in ways that can save you hours of time and labour and give you invaluable information.

With Industry 4.0 revolutionizing manufacturing and enterprise, we can ensure our systems will fully integrate - whether we provide an open API or perhaps integrate with your existing infrastructure - we will help your business control the flow of data and bring you the performance and economical benefits of a modern connected solution.

Hosting and Support

All our systems can be provided as a service so you don't have to worry about hosting, maintenance or support.

We provide a complete range of servicing and hosting packages to suit your solutions, size and budgets - we can even partner with your existing providers.

For those requiring self-deployment, we can provide source code or setup packages to install our software into your own hosting environment giving you complete control.
Please note we do not offer generic hosting services, we only provide hosting for one of our solutions.
