SOME OF OUR Custom Software ENGAGEMENTS

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.

The best result of their work recently is the portal itself. Until the recent MVP [minimum viable product] went out, we were unable to make emergency bookings through the system. They’ve really improved the functionality and our ability to work with other installers.

Project Manager – OVO Energy

Ballard Chalmers consultants are easy to work with, flexible and have been extremely keen on listening to problems and developing fit for purpose solutions. At no point were they overselling.

Head of Infrastructure Strategy & Architecture – BBC Media Action

The development with Ballard Chalmers was straight forward with minimal user acceptance testing. Full credit goes to the developers and management of our development partner, who fully understood the requirements and delivered with remarkable speed. They made it a completely painless process and that gave us confidence that AppCan XP would be very successful.
