We develop bespoke business applications. Rapid Application Development techniques (RAD) are used, and we have a proven track record for developing custom designed systems that integrate with shrink wrapped software such as accounts packages, spreadsheets, etc. We (along with the rest of the world and his dog it seems) design Web Sites, and also do programming, software design and consultancy on a daily rate basis.
Provided you are prepared to pay for some initial analysis and the writing of an outline specification (not a massive document), we will be happy to quote a fixed price, and stick to it. That doesn't mean we would later refuse to add features that had been omitted in error, simply that the fixed price would only cover items in the specification. We think this is fair.
Our main Languages are: Delphi, MS Access, Visual Basic, and C++.
