New Application Development

As a Microsoft Gold Partner in Application Development, Ballard Chalmers specialises in developing enterprise custom software solutions for the Microsoft Platform in the Azure cloud, as well as on-premises and hybrid systems, and, bespoke development for systems integration.

SOME OF OUR New Application Development ENGAGEMENTS

Application Development

At Ballard Chalmers, a primary focus of our work is developing brand-new custom software applications for organisations and enterprises. We take our clients ideas and requirements and turn them into operational and vital business systems.

These include new systems for mid-size and large enterprises, non-profit and public sector, and also for start-ups.

New applications may be web, or mobile, or both, or even desktop deployed, and functionality is developed precisely to our clients’ requirements.

As experts in .NET, Xamarin and Azure, SharePoint Server and The Power Platform, BizTalk Server and Azure Integration Services, SQL Server and Azure Modern Data Warehouse, we are perfectly placed to develop your new software in the form which works best for your organisation.

HOW WE CAN HELP WITH YOUR NEW CUSTOM SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS

WEB

Modern web applications hosted in Azure or a Data Centre delivers secure access to users wherever they are. This enables staff to work from any location seamlessly, and clients to access data and interact with your organisation directly, providing greater efficiency and economy.

MOBILE

A bespoke mobile application can help your organisation’s efficiency, increase collaboration and provide real-time data to improve information delivery to your staff and customers.
Key to this is Xamarin technology, allowing rapid cross-platform development of mobile applications for iOS and Android applications.

DESKTOP

There is still the need in some circumstances for desktop or local network-based new custom software applications. For example, systems that need to operate offline for extended periods – such as developing country field-operations, or charities working in remote regions.

Our approach to new application development is to engage with our client’s subject matter experts, who know and understand the business requirements entirely. We provide our deep technical expertise to work in tandem with our clients to define the technical design that will be delivered and exceed the business requirements set for the application.

With this, the scope of sectors and types of software functionality are not limited – the business expertise comes from the client and the technical expertise from Ballard Chalmers.

As a result, we have developed a multitude of highly complex systems in a great many sectors, including Financial Services, Energy and Utilities, Public Sector, Health and Social Care, Associations and Institutions, and more.

Our new software application builds include – Telemedicine system for the NHS delivering life-saving real-time emergency consultancy; Fund Administration System managing over £50 Billion in assets; Order to Cash and Credit Management System with over 1 Million end-clients using the system daily; a major contribution to the Transport for London Contactless Payment System, and many more.

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

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

CapitalTracker now controls every aspect of our business. That’s why the partnership with Ballard Chalmers has been so important. The programmers work for me, but are supported by their full technical team – it’s the best of both worlds.

Director of Development – Ipes

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

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 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 were engaged to undertake the work from project inception to ensure that requirements were fully captured…Feedback for the upgrade project was very positive and the site continues to evolve as more content and functions are added.

Head of Information Management – Rail Safety and Sandards Board

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

Ballard Chalmers brought the whole concept to life. They rapidly grasped the complexity of the business processes involved and created an easy to use tool that has since been expanded significantly. Ballard Chalmers are the experts you can rely on to deliver, easy to work with and cost effective – a fantastic extension to the team.

Managing Director – Mason Zimbler

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.
