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.

CIO – Oxford Computer Group
We are pleased with Alistair’s work onsite and with the documentation. Alistair was well prepared and helped us to understand the best application of SQL Mirroring for our environment, and he answered our questions in a good level of detail.
ICT Infrastructure Engineer – Islamic Relief Worldwide
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
The client was extremely happy with the deliverables. The teams work mitigated the risk surrounding the exit of the client’s key developer. Now, they feel comfortable using the orientation documentation the team provided to hire contractors. On the licensing side, the client is now in a much stronger position to negotiate their deal with Microsoft. It’s likely saved them quite a bit of money.
Founding Partner – Digital Transformation Company
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.
Head of IT – Ipes
I can’t think of anything that they can improve. I did have a contingency but it was never needed. They understood the task really well and knew what they were coming onsite to do.
Manager – Charity
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.

Just wanted to drop a note over to say many thanks for Kevin’s efforts, it was a pleasure working with him. He clearly has considerable skills.
