Bespoke Application Development

DAS prides itself on blue sky thinking solutions for our corporate clients in fulfilling many business ideas from concept to working on line solutions.

Although a custom-built solution is almost always a more expensive option, a well-designed system should pay for itself quickly by increasing productivity, often freeing up members of staff to concentrate on other areas of the business.

A bespoke solution can be surprisingly small but because it matches you specific requirement can still be incredibly effective.

So no matter how small why not call us to start a conversation and we can give you a range of costed options.

Your Business Needs

Off the shelf packages don't always fulfil a companies requirements. We will listen to you and develop an individual user friendly application to suit your needs, business requirements, staff processes and clients.

Hand holding

We know you will need help implementing any system, so we help you through the launch stage and include staff tuition. We also offer multi level longer term support and maintenance packages with various costings.

Secure

We know how vital it is for any system, customer and personal data to be secure. You can be reassured that with our many years of experience in developing and maintaining secure systems we follow robust procedures in this regard.

Data protection

With data privacy for individuals now a stutory legal responsibility, our own registered data protection officer ensures that we comply with the latest ICO protocols.

Intellectual Property

We know you will worry about this. So to reassure you we pass all intellectual property rights and copyright to you. We will also provide copies of all source code so you do not feel tied to us. While we are experience in support and maintenance we understand you may want other options for ongoing maintenance and support.

Case study: Middlesbrough Borough Council

Middlesbrough Council vetted and commissioned DAS to write a secure web application that offered local parents the opportunity to make preferences about which primary and secondary schools they wanted their children with evidence to support their choice. The complexity and variation of human choices and reasons meant working closely with the Council’s expert staff on how to provide all the choices required while keeping the user interface more accessible. The full system now automatically contacts the parents with login choices, handles parent’s choices and reasons, exports data for council staff to make decisions and finally imports results and informs parents.

The success of this project and the subsequent increments has meant that Middlesbrough Council has used these systems for about six years and continues to do so.
