SOME OF OUR Custom Software ENGAGEMENTS
CUSTOM SOFTWARE ENGINEERING FOR:
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’ 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 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.
