Software startups require three core elements for success: 1) subject matter expertise and a sound business plan, 2) funding and 3) software engineering expertise. With these three in place, the business will succeed. We cover the third core element for software startups that need an outsourced software development partner.


I’ve worked with a number of external companies with regards to support and development, all of whom have been professional, but I can honestly say that Ballard Chalmers have delivered their service to the highest standard of them all.

IT Program Manager – Plastic Logic

SMT, together with Ballard Chalmers have broken new ground with Mia. It is truly an innovative business intelligence and process management application that transforms data into smart business process by fully automating an optimal balance between achieving best receivables performance against best operational efficiency.

CEO – Square Marble Technology

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.

Application Development Manager – Running Bug

Before partnering with Ballard Chalmers Ltd, we were struggling to roll out enough updates. Now, we’re releasing changes and improvements every other week. We’ve pushed out more updates in the last six months than we have in the last three years.

Managing Director – AppCan

We are extremely lucky to have Ballard Chalmers as our partners, their delivery of all projects we have undertaken with them has been first class, and they are a perfect fit for our business. Trust them from the start because they have the ability to deliver on whatever you ask.
