SOME OF OUR Custom Software ENGAGEMENTS
CUSTOM SOFTWARE ENGINEERING FOR:
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 Gold 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.
Once development is completed, we are happy to continue working with you as your application development partner – assisting with consulting, support, resourcing, ongoing system enhancements and further software development.

Custom Software Case Studies
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
Their own online application for project management works really well. It creates a client site and tasks within each project. Tasks are assigned and then we have oversight as to when those items are updated and we’re able to comment on them and upload samples, etc. They communicate very regularly. They’re good about keeping us up to date and moving things forward.
Head of IT – Young Epilepsy
Many thanks for all your hard work, excellent result, I think the new functionality works really well… I will be working on functionality requirements for [the next phase] – the work never stops!! Thanks again guys.
Senior Operations Manager – RNLI
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
The new system is so much better than what we were doing in the past. We were sending a large amount of documents through the mail, and now the governors and trustees can access them remotely and securely online.
IT Manager – Children’s non-profit
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
Thanks for delivering a fantastic solution for our client. You’re a pleasure to work with and I hope this will the first of many collaborative projects.

Application Support Engineer – Tokyo Electron
Since March 2018, they have been supporting and developing our product and we have already made huge advancements in a relatively short time. The care and attention that is applied to the work they have done, the ability to resolve issues quickly, first rate communication and outstanding approach to project management all contribute to the success.
