Software project rescue

Has your developer left you with an unfinished project? Is your software project running behind schedule? Are your current developers struggling or not living up to their promises? Don’t worry, you won’t be the first business to experience this and we’re here to help.

Some of our longest standing customers started as a project rescue, in over 25 years, we’ve taken on failing software projects and turned them round to success. If you’re visiting this page, we should probably talk!

Speak to someone who can help

There can be lots of reasons why a software project needs rescuing.  Having worked on many project rescues or system takeovers you might be familiar with one or more of the following scenarios we’ve seen before:

  • The in-house developer that created the system is leaving/has left
  • Your offshore developer is difficult to communicate with and doesn’t understand your requirements
  • Your development company is delivering poor quality code
  • Your development company has gone bust or is making unreasonable demands
  • Your development company seems to be unable to finish the software or has lost interest
  • The software is no longer fit for purpose
  • The dependent technologies or source code is no longer supported/available

We’ll get our hands dirty

Whether your system has reams of documentation or none (the more likely) we have years of experience of taking on existing software projects.  Of course the more information the better, but we appreciate that sometimes this just isn’t the case. We’re happy to get our hands dirty and we’ll give you an honest assessment of the best way forward.

We despair at how our industry has a reputation for project failures. We take pride in our successful delivery of software projects and will do all we can to help make your project a success too.

Most developers run a mile from picking up someone else’s source code, but we recognise that writing off a whole load of code is unlikely to make business sense.  We’ve been taking on other people’s project code of all shapes, sizes and technologies for twenty years, so we can help you avoid wasting your project investment.

Projects can run behind for all sorts of reasons, some of them might be quite reasonable, but others might indicate its going wrong.

With no axe to grind, and a pure focus on meeting your timescales we’ll happily provide you with an independent, pragmatic view as to how to best get your project back on track. This might be as simple as adding some additional resource to your existing project team or it might need a more strategic or tactical review.

We understand that navigating the process of commissioning a software project can be confusing. That's why we offer a free 30 minute session with one of our experts, so that we can help you focus on how technology can transform your business.

In 30 minutes, we'll discuss

  • What are the real-world needs for your business?
    Building bespoke software is a process of converting a real requirement into code and its success is all down to how the requirement is interpreted. We'll look to listen and understand how a software system needs to work for you.
  • Bespoke software vs off the shelf vs system integrations
    Just because we can write the software, it doesn't always mean that it makes most business sense. We'll start to explore this with you.
  • Timescales, budgets, contributing factors
    There's more than one way to approach any software project, so we'll discuss any factors that might influence how we approach your project.
