SOME OF OUR Software Consultants ENGAGEMENTS
HOW OUR SOFTWARE CONSULTANTS CAN HELP YOU
Our expert consultants are highly trained and certified through Microsoft in their respective areas. We are available to advise for a single day, few days or for longer engagements.
Our most common consulting is short on-site engagements, reviewing and analysing, followed up with a written report containing executive-level advice, or more detailed analysis and recommendations.
We can advise on your enterprise application’s architecture, design, configuration and code, or fix bugs. We can also analyse your systems to determine how and what changes can be made to make internal processes more efficient.
If a bug crops up and you need assistance, call on us as Microsoft Gold consultants. We can come for as little as a day to several weeks or even longer, to help you or your internal team get through the difficulty and your custom software development back on track.

Thank you for helping us out at short notice and providing an experienced, knowledgeable professional. Mohammed really helped us through a tough spot so I feel it definitely worked well.
Development Manager – Trustmarque Solutions
Partnering with [Ballard Chalmers] is very straightforward. We have a lot of respect for them from a professional and technical point of view – they say what they mean and they do what they say! It’s a pleasure working with them.
Working with two partners only enhanced the success of the project. With the specialist knowledge of a smaller partner, Consolidata, combined with the size and breadth of experience of a Gold partner, Ballard Chalmers, I feel we benefited from the power of both.
Head of IT – Weetabix
They help you bring out the technical elements of your system. We have our own development team that comes up with the initial technical design but it’s become part of our standard process to use Ballard Chalmers as a sounding board for technical designs whether or not we’re asking them to do the work. They still come back and help us make sure we’re making the right technical choices.
