Bespoke software development

Using bespoke software exactly matches your company's needs. It gives you full control over your business and has the flexibility to change as your business requirements change. Bespoke business software increases productivity, reduces costs, provides better customer relationships and delivers single point of truth for the entire company.
If you don't have a clear overview of what is going on in your company at any given time, it is usually because:
  • You're using the wrong mechanism to control your information, such as Excel spreadsheets
  • Having to access multiple systems to get information
  • Reliance on unsupported legacy systems
  • Reliance on manual systems
  • Difficulty accessing information remotely both in and out of the office

A standard business website with content management will typically cost £5,000 - £15,000 depending on the complexity, level of design required, integration with other systems etc. It will usually include the following sections:

  • Homepage 
  • About us 
  • Services 
  • Blog 
  • Testimonials 
  • Case studies 
  • Contact us 
  • Legal pages (GDPR) 
  • Social media links 
  • Newsletter subscription
Bespoke software is custom-tailored to the exact requirements of your business. It’s just like buying a tailored-made suit or dress that's been made to measure. It has the flexibility to grow and change as your business grows. Many companies end up changing their process to fit off-the-shelf software, rather than using software that's optimised for them.
Bespoke software development typically falls somewhere between £10,000 and £250,000. As each solution is completely tailored-made to fit the requirements of one business, each application is unique and has a different set of requirements, functionality and complexity.
It is relatively easy to integrate an old legacy system into a new ecosystem if it's got an API. It is less simple to do so without the existence of an API but it might still be done using some creative solutions depending on the structure and environment of the software.
Thanks to the advances in modern programming languages and frameworks, bespoke software can now be developed at a price-point that is viable for even the smallest company. In fact, for smaller companies the ROI can be huge, allowing them to compete directly against larger companies.

Digital transformation

Digital transformation is the enhancement of a business’s activities through the application of a mix of integrated digital technologies. Quite often this involves leveraging cloud-based solutions which reduce deployment and maintenance costs, whilst providing seamless access across the company.

The cost will be different for each business depending on the size of the company, number of different business processes that need to be transformed and the complexity of those processes.
Absolutely! Digital transformation can help businesses:
  • Increase efficiency
  • Automate time consuming tasks
  • Make the business available from anywhere, at any time
  • Increase security and accountability
  • Provide integration with other systems
  • Real-time reporting
  • Increase customer satisfaction
  • Improve staff productivity  
  • Deliver a competitive advantage

Each company, big or small, has developed over the years their own unique business processes. These processes can be digitised and/or automated to make them more efficient and give the people who are using them (both clients and staff) a better experience.


An Application Programming Interface (API) allows developers to get two different software systems to integrate with each other by providing a clear set of definitions about the type of interactions that can be made, how to make them, the data formats that should be used, the conventions to follow, etc.
Automated deployment allows developers to deploy changes from their development environment onto other server environments, such as a test or live server with a push of a button. This makes sure there is a much smaller chance of errors on live production servers. It's quick and efficient and therefore saves a lot of time which allows developer teams to deploy code and database changes very frequently.

The open-source model of software development is based on transparency and collaboration. Developers share the source code, documentation and APIs for their systems and make it freely available to the global developer community.  It is released under a license in which the copyright holder grants users the rights to use, study, change, and distribute the software to anyone and for any purpose. 

The development of a a website or web application that takes into consideration the device that users are using to view it. The application behaves in a slightly different way when users use a mobile phone, a tablet, a laptop or a desktop computer to access it. It strives to give the user the best experience depending on the device they are using.

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. It is the standard technology for keeping an internet connection secure, safeguarding any sensitive data that is being sent between a browser and a website. It prevents criminals from reading and modifying any information being transferred, including personal details.
