SOME OF OUR Software Development ENGAGEMENTS
CUSTOM SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT
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.
Our approach to new custom software 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.
The development of the Oyster card system, with contactless payments and other features, was a massive .NET development, involving enormous data volumes and requiring the best development team…Ballard Chalmers contributed to the success of this project by supplying critical resources.
Fares & Ticketing Project Manager – TFL
To pass on some feedback from the testers, it is unanimous that everyone thinks this new system is an improvement with many comments about the improved functionality and speed of the system. Really fantastic feedback from users considering it’s the first time they have ever seen it.
Principal Consultant – Management Consultancy
PowerApps was included with our Office 365 licenses, so when Ballard Chalmers proposed this as our solution it enabled us to have a cost-effective, easy to use application, delivered within very tight timescales. The product itself is very flexible, so it needed a flexible approach and good collaboration, which we certainly got from the Ballard Chalmers team.
IT Consultant – Parkinson’s UK
Since March 2018, they have been supporting and developing our product and we have already made huge advancements in a relatively short time.

Software Development Case Studies
OUR CUSTOM SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT SERVICE
We want you to achieve maximum return on your investment, meaning we put your business goals first, always looking at how the software can best help you achieve them. We do this through expert software development, a flexible approach and an excellent understanding of business process.
FLEXIBLE CUSTOM SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS
As well as fully cloud-native applications, we are in place to help you with on-premise or hybrid development, mobile solutions or bespoke desktop applications when required.
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.
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.
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.
