WE ARE BALLARD CHALMERS
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.
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.
We have been using Ballard Chalmers for support of our SharePoint intranet for over three years now and the level of service has been outstanding. They have also developed a number of bespoke applications for us. The solutions they have delivered have been reliable and solid and we have very rarely had to re-visit them. I find it difficult to find any criticism of the service they provide.
Application Support Engineer – Tokyo Electron
The team’s work will lower business risk and increase cost efficiency. Their ability to train internal resources has added value. Diligent and deadline driven, they are reliable employees. They don’t require detailed instructions to get the job done.
CIO – United Living
We appreciate all the project input from Ballard Chalmers, who not only developed the system rapidly and without disruption, but suggested enhancements to our original concept. The system is creating opportunities for even better patient care than envisaged at the start of the project.
IT Manager – Queen Victoria Hospital
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.
Head of IT EMEA and Global Networks – Imagination
Future clients should trust Ballard Chalmers to perform well. It isn’t necessary to overspecify the project, they will totally understand the solutions you’re trying to achieve.
CIO – United Living
Their team is proactive and goes beyond the role of a supplier. They’re more of a partner and fill in that role perfectly. Their team’s not afraid to tell us when they think that we should pursue a different option.
IT Manager, Y.CO
They’re approachable people, and they clearly care about the quality of their work. Geoff and Andrew were always happy to speak with stakeholders via a phone call.
Founding Partner – Digital Transformation Company
I would like you to convey my appreciation for the professional faultless support we continue to receive from Ballard Chalmers. From installation to the completion of the SharePoint application and subsequent support, they have shown expert knowledge.
IT Manager – Plastic Logic
We’ve used Ballard Chalmers for integration using BizTalk in a number of applications. They are refreshingly straightforward and practical and we are very pleased with the work they have done for us.
Head of IT – Exterion Media
At every point Ballard Chalmers brought expert technical knowledge combined with ability to make the complex and often confusing simple and organised. I wholeheartedly recommend Ballard Chalmers
CEO – Ratio Creative
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.

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.
