NOT JUST SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS
WE ARE SOFTWARE ENGINEERS
Ballard Chalmers, part of the Transparity Group, is one of the UK’s leading Microsoft consultancy practices specialising in custom software. Specifically development, integration and support for enterprise applications on the Microsoft platform.
Ballard Chalmers is principally dedicated to new custom software development, modernisation of legacy applications and integration for the Azure Cloud, as well as on-premises and hybrid systems.
Our primary focus today is Microsoft Azure cloud-native custom development, Azure Integration Services and Modern Data Warehouse. Our technology expertise encompasses Microsoft .NET, SQL Server and BizTalk Server.
As a Microsoft Partner with multiple solution partner designations and specialisations, we have a well-earned reputation for delivering expert service in these technologies, and for doing so at sensible rates.
SOME OF OUR ENGAGEMENTS
FLEXIBLE AND EXPERT SERVICES
At Ballard Chalmers, as a consultancy company, we deliver our application development services to best suit our clients. Whether it’s short-term consultancy, end-to-end project delivery outsource partnering, extended team augmentation, or long-term application support and DevOps, we will deliver our technical skills and expertise to your requirements. Our core services give us great flexibility to work with you cost-effectively across any point of the development life cycle.
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.
Account Director – Caburn Hope
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.
Managing Director – CVA Media
Ballard Chalmers has 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 and able to act promptly throughout. We look forward to working with them more in the future and would recommend them highly.
Director – Fenix Insight
They’re simply a group of honest, hardworking people. They know their market and area of expertise, and they’re very efficient and focused when it comes to that work.

I’ve said several times that Ballard Chalmers are some of the best in the business. Hands down the best ‘supplier’ I’ve worked with in seven years of doing projects here. I’ve really enjoyed working with you all.
Principal Consultant – Nine Feet Tall
Much appreciation to you and your team at Ballard Chalmers for unwavering support and expertise during this strange year.
CIO – United Living
Ballard Chalmers has consistently exceeded our expectations in terms of teamwork, deadlines, cost and quality of deliverables. They are a real pleasure to work with and I often joke that they are one of my few IT providers that help me sleep at night. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them highly to other organisations.
CIO – United Living
Ballard Chalmers quickly understood our requirement and deployed the right people to deliver the work effectively. The team were extremely professional and highly competent. They had intimate knowledge of the wider Microsoft stack and they drew on the wider experience within the company to ensure they delivered high quality work.
Founding Partner – Not Binary
This was our first experience of working with Ballard Chalmers. They did a great job of working to our style of project management (e.g. through issues management) and allowed us to deliver the upgrade and redesign of SharePoint that we wanted, whilst adhering to best practice.
ICT Service Development Manager – CHP
MEET OUR CTO
Geoff Ballard is our co-founder and Chief Technical Officer. He oversees the technical team and is very hands-on in major software development projects.
Geoff is an all-round Microsoft enterprise platform expert and has a depth of expertise that is rarely matched. His 30+ years of consultancy practice experience offers a safe pair of hands and an ability for deep problem solving where needed.
We invite you to take advantage of a no-cost informal review and discussion of your project with him.
THE RIGHT PLACE, THE RIGHT TIME
Whether it is application modernisation, custom software development for cloud or on-premises, migrating systems to the cloud or integrating online and offline systems, Ballard Chalmers has the expertise and experience to support your application development requirements.
Our experts can help you at any point in the software development cycle and have vast experience of doing so for clients across a range of industries.
As a Microsoft partner, our developers are hands-on with Azure cloud application development, .NET Core, Xamarin, SQL Server, Azure Integration Services and BizTalk Server day in and day out. Our expertise and insight become yours.
We work with you to understand your requirements and translate this into reliable code to deliver a system that exceeds expectations and, most importantly, works.
We work closely and consultatively so that the full business requirements are captured and analysed. This ensures that business processes are reflected in the software architecture and that designs are streamlined, efficient and flow logically. Proper design, architecture and user experience are essential to systems that function very well — and save your organisation time and money.
Once development is completed, we are happy to continue working with you as your long-term partner – assisting with consulting, support, resourcing, ongoing system enhancements and further development.
