About

We are Microsoft Gold Partners. Principally specialising in software development, modernisation and integration for the cloud, as well as on-premises and hybrid systems. Our expertise is in Microsoft .NET and Azure, SQL Server and BizTalk Server. We have a well-earned reputation for delivering expert service in these technologies, and for doing so at sensible rates.

SOME OF OUR ENGAGEMENTS

With a heritage of over 30 years, the company is driven by its founders Geoff Ballard and Andrew Chalmers who have distinct backgrounds in technology and business, yet share the same desire to simply make things work better in business.

We deliver a flexible and mature approach to application development and have adapted methodologies and terms of business to suit the requirements of our clients.

Our real-world business and technical expertise mean we are able to work with clients to find the best possible way of interpreting briefs commercially to deliver projects in scope, on time and in budget.

Our clients include leading public and private sector organisations in all major industry sectors; particularly energy & utilities, financial services, non-profit, education and health.

RELIABLE PARTNER

We understand that working with a new supplier is a big decision, with our partnerships and accreditations, you can be sure we are reliable, we can deliver what we promise and our technical expertise is at the highest level. Your custom applications are in safe hands.

5 desiginations

As part of the Transparity Group, we’ve been awarded five of the six new Microsoft Partner Designations, firmly placing us amongst the most accredited Microsoft Partners in the world. Microsoft’s new designations make it easier for customers to identify the best partners for them by highlighting those with outstanding capabilities across six key areas.

As a Microsoft Partner, we benefit from specialised technical support and services from Microsoft, which means we can serve you better.

ISO 9001:2015

ISO (International Organization for Standardization) provide guidance and tools to ensure our products and services consistently meet client requirements. As an ISO 9001:2015 certified organisation, audited by Quality Management Systems (QMS), we measure our performance on an ongoing basis and strive to consistently improve it.

ISO 27001:2013

ISO 27001:2013 details the requirements for establishing, executing, upholding and refining an information security management system within the framework of the organization. Our certification proves our security measures are perfected to keep up with changes in security threats, weaknesses and business impact.

Crown Commercial Service Supplier

We are an official supplier for the Crown Commercial Service for the Digital Outcomes and Specialists framework and G-Cloud. These frameworks aid the research, designing, building, testing and delivery of software applications and digital services within the public sector and enable us to smoothly work with Public Sector organisations.

OUR APPROACH

We deliver a flexible approach to application development and have adapted methodologies and terms of business to suit the requirements of our clients.

In the main, we provide IT executives and managers of large organisations with expertise and skills on an outsourced service and technical partnership basis.

The aim is to help to achieve your programme objectives. Our commitment is that we will always bring the best possible expertise and skillsets to the partnership.

The successful delivery of a custom software development project relies greatly on the technical skill of software engineers, but ultimately on much more.

Delivering a project on time and within budget requires a stringent management and tracking system as well as clear communication between the development team and the client. Find out more about our delivery and project methodology.

We work with UK enterprises on a broad and varied range of projects. Such as designing and developing new applications that support business innovation and business process streamlining.

With technology rapidly evolving, application modernisation for legacy systems, getting them once again fit for purpose, is much in demand. Not to forget system integration – particularly today with hybrid cloud systems, we integrate online and offline enterprise systems securely and efficiently.

Our core services, from outsourced development and support to short-term consultancy or resourcing, and flexible development style, give us great flexibility to work with clients across any point of the development life cycle. 

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.

IT Manager – Young Epilepsy

I have probably tried every potential method for software engineering projects and this has been by far the most effective experience I have had. The insights brought by Ballard Chalmers were invaluable.

CEO – Square Marble Technology

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

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

They were very responsive and got back to us quickly if we had any questions. While some firms would spread two days of work out to four or five, Ballard Chalmers understood that was unnecessary and expensive. They were pragmatic and focused on getting the job done.
