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.

SOME OF OUR New Application Development ENGAGEMENTS

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.

We are very pleased with the work done by Ballard Chalmers. The resulting system was successful in fully automating this particular procurement process, and we would certainly recommend them to others.

Development Manager – Trustmarque Solutions

They are always available to have a conversation, and are quick to respond to any questions we have. The openness within the channels is great, and they let us know when a team member will be away so we can manage our timeline expectations. They deploy changes quickly, and show good flexibility to address any issues we have.

Project Manager – OVO Energy

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

Ballard Chalmers has consistently provided a service that has matched or exceeded expectations within the agreed budget and timescale. They were receptive to our on-going suggestions and changing requirements and able to act promptly throughout. We look forward to working with them more in the future and would recommend them highly.”

Director – Fenix Insight

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

I have probably tried every potential method for software engineering projects and this has been by far the most effective experience I have had. The insights brought by Ballard Chalmers were invaluable.”

CEO – Square Marble Technology

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 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

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

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.
