Moving our Global ERP System from an on-premises solution to a Cloud hybrid solution presented some technical challenges during design and implementation phases. Ballard Chalmers consultants provided the skills and expertise needed to successfully complete the project. We are extremely happy with the end result and the service provided by Ballard Chalmers.
...I can't believe how much we've managed to get done over the last couple of years...and I just want to say thanks to you for all your work.
The performance increases out of the team are pretty astonishing.
For example, since the original phase 1 launch, the number of accounts worked by the team has increased by 250%, successful outcomes by 137%, payments by 152%, among many more positive stories. While headcount has remained fairly static, these improvements have been heavily influenced by process and system improvements that we've put in place together.
I'm sure we'll see similar results with phase 2… which is a very exciting prospect!
Just wanted to drop a note over to say many thanks for Kevin's efforts, it was a pleasure working with him. He clearly has considerable skills. It gives me a lot more confidence that there are so many options for us in the future. Many thanks also to yourselves for taking the time to understand the many and complex issues we potentially face.
Ballard Chalmers' consultancy and Microsoft .NET development expertise has been instrumental in the redevelopment of the Canterbury Student .NET portal.
To have IT experts who quickly grasp the realities of your commercial needs, and are able to focus on each project as a working tool for business rather than a technical achievement in its own right, is a revelation.
We are delighted with our overall solution. Ballard Chalmers and the Fares and Ticketing team have worked extremely closely together and although this was the first development project undertaken by the Fares and Ticketing team, it was so successful that we will certainly undertake development in-house in the future.
Having worked with Ballard Chalmers previously, they were an obvious choice to bring into Mencap to consult on our SQL environment. Geoff Ballard is very knowledgeable and was able to distil our problems and provide proposals on how to proceed.Overall very happy with the initial completed phase of works. Ballard Chalmers were able to provide an qualified resource onsite within our very tight timeframe and were instrumental in mitigating risk associated with our project.
Ballard Chalmers brought the whole concept to life. They rapidly grasped the complexity of the business processes involved and created an easy to use tool that has since been expanded significantly.

Over the past few years Ballard Chalmers has consistently surprised me with effective and economic solutions to difficult briefs, especially when dealing with the upgrading and integration of legacy systems. Their new builds are also excellent, and I would recommend them without hesitation.
Ballard Chalmers were engaged to undertake the work from project inception to ensure that requirements were fully captured…Feedback for the upgrade project was very positive and the site continues to evolve as more content and functions are added.
Thanks for your support - John did an awesome job. We are looking at moving more applications to Microsoft technology and we view you as our Microsoft Partner of choice for future work.
We have a very good relationship with Ballard Chalmers. From the outset, we wanted a partner that would work with us and develop a platform that we could rely on. Ballard Chalmers has a great team that has delivered a visually impactful website that meets virtually all of our requirements. Without their help and advice, The Running Bug website would not be half as good, and we are already working closely with them as we develop the next version of website.
We are pleased with Alistair’s work onsite and with the documentation. Alistair was well prepared and helped us to understand the best application of SQL Mirroring for our environment, and he answered our questions in a good level of detail.
Helpful and highly knowledgeable. Supported many of our systems for several years and continue to do so.
Stark Software International has dealt with Ballard Chalmers for over 15 years. A very solid relationship has developed where high quality resources have been applied to the development and maintenance of two of Stark's major IT systems. Good continuity has been maintained even when key developers have changed. Stark would thoroughly recommend this company.
Ballard Chalmers have consistently provided a service that has matched or exceeded expectations within the agreed budget and timescale. They were receptive to our on-going suggestions and changing requirements in our latest project, designing a bespoke internet site, and able to act promptly throughout. We look forward to working with them more in the future and would recommend them highly.
I have known and worked with Geoff for at least 10 years as an IT trainer at Learning Tree and as a SQL Server Consultant. Geoff is extremely knowledgeable and an excellent communicator. It would be a pleasure to recommend him to anyone.
