Bespoke Software Development Services

Atlas offers bespoke software development that helps give your business a competitive advantage

Dean North

Atlas are an award-winning software house, with skills and expertise that span a range of different industries and modern Microsoft technologies. We’ve also done something that none of our competitors have; we have designed, built, released and marketed our own successful software products, so we understand the business of software development and startups like no other software company in the UK.

When it comes to bespoke software development you’ll find us well within our comfort zone when we’re solving complex business problems. We’re best at cultivating solutions and systems to operational or process problems that plague many modern businesses.

The advice we provide is completely free of charge and comes with no obligation to use our services. Give us a call or drop us an email and we’ll gladly offer impartial, professional and most importantly useful guidance specific to your business needs.

In the last few years we’ve created a new back-office system for the housing and homelessness charity Shelter, a new customer relationship management (CRM) and billing system for the PM Group and a hospital pathway information sharing platform for Hospital to Home that saves the National Health Service (NHS) over £4m a year.

Working in partnership

No two customers of Atlas have the same needs, and so we offer a flexible approach to resourcing:

  • Fixed-Term Software Development: Fixed-term software development with fixed-time and a fixed-price. We can provide fixed-term software development where a customer’s need is for a very self-contained piece of software with clearly defined and comprehensively documented software requirements.
  • Ongoing Software Development: Ongoing software development or what we like to term as Team-as-a-Sevice (TaaS) is where we work with you from the earliest stages. From our work with startup companies and of developing our own software products, we’ve embraced the principle of the Minimum Viable Product (MVP) – a demo that does pretty much what you want, to prove that it can be done.

Big on transparency

From your first enquiry through to project sign off, the number one compliment we receive from all of our customers is how transparent we are.

We use the latest tools such as Trello, Harvest and custom reporting tools so you always have up to the minute information about the progress made.

Agile by nature

We understand that software development projects are often difficult to specify in their entirety at the outset. Our software development processes accommodate the unknown, providing flexibility without sacrificing speed and quality of delivery, which are the core tenets of the agile methodology.

We work with you at the outset to define the high-level software product vision statement for your development project, and what you hope to achieve. We then perform multiple sprints of development – making changes to requirements following each sprint as required based on the latest information.

Customers love the transparency and control this provides them.

We understand the business of software

We also build our own software including Staff Squared, HR software for small businesses and Fundipedia, an enterprise application for fund management companies.

Building our own products provides the Atlas team with numerous advantages that we can in turn provide to your business, including:

  • The opportunity to test new technologies, processes and tooling on our software products before sharing them with customers.
  • Opportunities to further refine our development processes when we perform updates on our software products.
  • Insight into the various disciplines such as sales, marketing and operational shortcuts that sit outside of core software development that we can share with our customers to help them achieve success.
  • The ability to hire and retain more software developers than we need for client projects alone as spare resource can always be dedicated to our software products. Over resourcing in this manner gives us the ability to ramp up on new bespoke software development projects faster than any of our competitors.
