Charities and Non-Profits

We have an extensive record of delivering custom software development projects for non-profit sector organisations, such as public charities, social advocacy groups and foundations. We understand the unique requirements of this sector and this why many non-profits choose to partner with us, time and again.

Software development partner for the non-profit sector

Ballard Chalmers is a proud software development partner to the non-profit sector, providing solutions to organisations such as BBC Media Action, Parkinson’s UK, Young Epilepsy, Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI), Islamic Relief and Mencap.

For these clients we have developed software on-premises and in the cloud in .NET and Azure, SQL Server, SharePoint, BizTalk Server and Xamarin.

We offer non-profits services with the singular goal of providing you with technology better than your existing, allowing for greater efficiency and enabling you to concentrate on mission objectives.

Our experts can deliver fully customised Microsoft enterprise applications for your non-profit, adapting it to perform in line organisational objectives, for example for tailored donation portals, accounting integrations, specified intranets and database customisations to assist with prospect research.

Further we can integrate systems, modernise legacy applications, migrate you to the cloud and more. With our core services and expertise, we have great flexibility to work with you across any point of the development lifecycle.

Their work with us has had a good balance of corporate professionalism and personal engagement. We have appreciated their sympathy for our work in the ‘not for profit’ sector.

IT Manager – Young Epilepsy

Thus far they have shown the skills we came to them for, which has been reassuring. That they have not tried to overextend their business with us beyond their core services is also reassuring.”

IT Manager – Young Epilepsy

They were very responsive and got back to us quickly if we had any questions. While some firms would spread two days of work out to four or five, Ballard Chalmers understood that was unnecessary and expensive. They were pragmatic and focused on getting the job done.

Manager – Charity

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

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

Paul was great throughout working through troubleshooting, and then adapting the solution as our requirements changed and he ultimately got us to a place where we needed to be and under the time stated. Thanks again for all the help on this one.”

Application Analyst – MSI

I was also impressed with their can-do attitude, and how they approached the challenge of making the project work within a non-profit budget.

IT Manager – Children’s non-profit

Having worked with Ballard Chalmers previously, they were an obvious choice to bring into Mencap to consult on our SQL environment. Geoff Ballard is very knowledgeable and was able to distill our problems and provide proposals on how to proceed. Overall, very happy with the initial completed phase of works.

Programme and Infrastructure Manager – Mencap

They’ve done a great job explaining everything to me, in a technical way and not as a sales pitch. The team demonstrated how to most effectively use SharePoint for the organization, including what tools can be changed and manipulated to best suit the portal.

IT Manager – Children’s non-profit

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.
