New Application Development

As a Microsoft Gold Partner in Application Development, BC 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.

Application Development

A primary focus of our work is in 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.

Powerful Business Intelligence (BI) capabilities in SQL Server, Azure and the Power Platform can transform your complex data into business insights to share across your organisation. Our experts can help you plan, build and deliver your BI solutions.

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.
