Bespoke Business Applications

Bespoke Business Applications – We’re experts at using technology to build web, mobile or desktop apps to solve your business software problems

Bespoke Business Applications

When it comes to developing business applications and operational software, we love a challenge! In the last few years we’ve created a new back-office system for the charity Shelter, a new CRM and billing system for the PM Group and a hospital pathway information sharing platform for Hospital to Home that saves the NHS over £4m a year.

ATLAS’ BESPOKE BUSINESS APP DEVELOPMENT

We have specific expertise in business software solutions, having been involved in bespoke software development to create our own software products. Our primary objective is to solve your business problem through clever software and create something that you can’t do without, and we can do that with London expertise at Essex prices.

The nature of your business software problem will determine the nature of your particular app. Here are some examples of business apps we have built for delighted customers:

  • A CRM and billing system integrated into a hosted, web-based application.
  • A database-driven front-end hosted website.
  • Local or cloud databases that can be copied and synced from a desktop application.
  • Mobile and tablet apps with cloud and local databases.
  • Whatever you need using these kinds of core elements.

IT’S YOUR BUSINESS APP – SO YOU OWN IT

There are horror stories about companies being told that the Intellectual Property (IP) of the business app that they’ve commissioned doesn’t belong to them. That’s the last thing you need, and from day one we’re devoted to software development that belongs to you and you alone, and where your own software development team will have the ability to do updates and maintenance. We’re here to support you when you ask for that support, but with a business app that’s got your name on it, we understand we’re the supporting cast and don’t get star billing.

CASE STUDY – INVESTEC

We put together a platform for Investec – a specialist bank and asset management company – which allows them to consolidate and pull data from a range of departments, creating a more transparent and flexible reporting system. Previously each department had its own Microsoft Excel spreadsheet-based systems, which effectively meant there wasn’t a system.

We took all of that data and put it into one relational database, resolving any inconsistencies as we went. Now, the customer has a super-flexible system that allows information to be presented in a myriad of ways according to context, and which allows new knowledge to be incorporated with ease. That’s a real asset to them and their clients and makes them less reliant on us.

The nature of the information held requires a discrete confidential approach, while it’s also important to update clients at specific intervals. And that’s exactly what we delivered – a fully searchable audit trail for each class of data ensures transparency and accountability, and the system uses web services to share time-sensitive facts with third party stakeholders.

Security is always a major concern with business software, and security mechanisms are layered into the system from the login screen to the databases. The software solution was integrated into using the company’s existing authentication management strategy and this allowed administrators to have the same precise control over permissions and logins.

The end result? Flexibility a yoga teacher would be proud of, within a rock-solid system that adds value both for the customer and their clients, increasing intelligence within the system and providing focused points of contact leading to more business and consequently more profits.

CASE STUDY – INFORM DIRECT

The challenge: to keep company secretarial records up to date for compliance purposes, Inform Direct relies on a system provided by Companies House. But the information from them doesn’t account for situations such as individuals holding multiple roles, or holdings within an organisation.

We set out to make those distinctions possible to increase Inform Direct’s efficiency on behalf of clients and started with a prototype. The issue was how to take data from Companies House and utilise it in new ways – automatically. We took their spreadsheet data, devised sophisticated algorithms to drill down for key data, and presented the information in a dynamic and easy to read interface.

The system created also allows users to simply generate a variety of documents in different formats such as Microsoft Word and Adobe PDF according to their needs. A straightforward front-end masks a complex system that performs highly involved tasks of data sourcing, juggling, and formatting to make life easier for Inform Direct’s clients.
