Managing Director – AppCan

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

Working with a team that has such a breadth of fintech and custom software engineering knowledge helped us forecast challenges in the build even before they arose and work to an effective delivery plan, on time and in budget. We couldn’t be happier with our partnership with Ballard Chalmers, who have delivered on all fronts.

CEO – Square Marble Technology

Ballard Chalmers integrated with the IT team brilliantly and were extremely professional at all times. The reason it worked so well is that everyone had Weetabix’s best interests in focus throughout the project.

Head of IT – Weetabix

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.

IT Project Manager – Energy Saving Trust

We are very pleased with the work done by Ballard Chalmers. The resulting system was successful in fully automating this particular procurement process, and we would certainly recommend them to others.

Development Manager – Trustmarque Solutions

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.

Application Development Manager – Running Bug

We are delighted with our overall solution. The entire process was relatively painless and although Mike [from Ballard Chalmers] and the Fares and Ticketing team were under pressure and had massive amounts of development work to complete, the system has proved to be highly successful.

Project Manager – TFL

Ballard Chalmers’ work was a big step forward for the business. We were able to access and manage far more information. That data was also accessible to a much greater number of people than previously available.

Commercial Director – CSI

I can’t think of anything that they can improve. I did have a contingency but it was never needed. They understood the task really well and knew what they were coming onsite to do.

Manager – Charity
