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

Ballard Chalmers is a software development partner to several software startups, including most recently, Square Marble Technology and AppCan.

  • Live Application Support
  • Consultancy at any stage of the project lifecycle

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.

Managing Director – AppCan

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

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.

Tailored specifically with startups in mind, we offer workshops and discovery sessions, giving you access to our development expertise.

Here we can:

  • Review your idea and act as a sounding board
  • Assist with strategy and planning
  • Provide more detailed system design
  • Develop Prototype and MVP applications

Sometimes all it takes is a day of consultation from the right expert to get your project on track. Sometimes it requires augmenting your team with outside expertise, or outsourcing entirely to an expert development partner.

Every software startup project will have unique requirements, unique hurdles and individual budgets and timescales. We will work with you to find solutions that fit your specific needs.
