Custom Software Development
It’s what we do.
We get approached by organisations of varying sizes and across all industries about building custom software. Some are veterans of running a business with custom software, some might have been using an off-the-shelf option, while others have been using spreadsheets for longer than they’d care to admit. Basically every client comes to us at various stages of their custom software journey.
But wherever you are, we can bring your ideas to life, whatever they might be. With our technical competence, innovative thinking and unrivalled experience we have the ability to build anything you want.
With our expertise and your vision, everything is possible.
We are passionate bunch of software developers based in London (Kentish Town). We know more than a thing or two about bespoke software development and have the ability to build anything you want. Because sometimes only a solution built on-demand will suffice.
From database management systems, to volunteer management platforms, to business-critical, end-to-end workflow systems, we’ve made our name in creating bespoke software and web applications that fix real business issues and offer tangible benefits on a day-to-day basis.

How we work
We’ll use the detailed brief that has been sent over by the client as a starting point in a project definition workshop. During this kick off meeting we’ll probe, grill and extract exactly what it is your business needs. Once we’ve captured the requirements we can move on to the next phase, design.
Wireframes and design
We start by mapping out the UI and UX and refine those user journeys into clickable wireframes. Once those blueprints are established and you’re happy, our design team can start bringing them to life.
Agile development process
When designs are signed off we start the build. We are big advocates of the Agile Methodology which might be familiar to you. If not, what Agile essentially means is that the build is broken down into sprints. These are short, defined periods of development representing a section or stage of the build; at the end of each sprint we will hand over a working version of that sprint in a continuous cycle of development and feedback. This allows for an iterative and flexible process which keeps you involved at all times with ultimately better outcomes for the final product.
