Project Recovery & Application Rescue

With our Software Project Recovery service, we can help get your development back on track. Development projects can run into trouble for any number of reasons and our front-line rescue team is expert at untangling and uncomplicating projects speedily, moving you in the right delivery direction again. A vital action to get a project back within or close to budget.


Sometimes a day of consultancy from the right expert is all it takes to get a troublesome project back on track. Alternately, if it is deemed necessary we can take over the management or development of your custom software.

Since there are a number of ways a custom software development project can run into trouble, we offer options on how to rescue a development project, based on the individual requirements.

  • Disaster: If the project has entered ‘disaster’ status, our Software Project Rescue team can be made available to you on an urgent basis to take over development and deliver your enterprise software in full working order. Alternatively, our team can step in to rectify problems and hand it back to you for completion.
  • Emergency: If the project has not yet escalated to disaster status but you have concerns it is headed that way, we can lend your team the helping hand of a single specialist or team to help identify and remedy problems. This could be anything from a consultant for one day to a crew joining you on or off-site for the duration.
  • Review: If the project has slowed down, or you have concerns about quality, we can offer an independent view. There may even be nothing awry, but you would simply like a second opinion for peace of mind.

No two development projects are identical and so problems are not always easy to pinpoint for those less experienced.

Since we are fundamentally engineers who deal in the ‘nuts and bolts’ of software builds, we have exceptionally deep technical expertise which enables us to locate and mitigate problems others may overlook. This know-how also lets us take on projects considered too complex or difficult by other development teams.

Having been in Information Technology for 30 years, I have never worked with such an agile company before, and I very much doubt we would have made these advancements with any other software partner. It really has been a breath of fresh air to work with Ballard Chalmers and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.

We have noticed a dramatic improvement in our development speed and the quality of work is high. This is due to the direct communication we have with their developers to discuss and solve problems.

Their team is proactive and goes beyond the role of a supplier. They’re more of a partner and fill in that role perfectly. Their team’s not afraid to tell us when they think that we should pursue a different option.
