Our custom software solutions designed around you

What kind of software solution do you need?

A business case for a software project

We turn your business goals into tightly defined and documented requirements. Our experienced project experts help to estimate costs and timescales, create a strong business case, and kick-start a successful project.

Code review

With a critical eye for detail, we will dig into your code base and report back on its maintainability, security, and whether it follows industry best practice in areas such as automated testing, and continuous integration and deployment.

A roadmap for replacing a legacy system

We’ll explore what your legacy system is doing and where it needs to be in the future. With experience across a range of technologies, we offer practical solutions with your business objectives always at the centre.

Solving a business problem through technology

There’s nothing our consultants love more than to creatively solve business problems. We aren’t limited to bespoke development solutions, we look deep into your processes and apply our extensive knowledge of different technologies, off-the-shelf tools, and best practice solutions across many industries.

Agile training for my in-house development team

With vast experience of collaborating with in-house teams moving to Agile practices, we understand how to tackle the challenges faced when making this transition. We can help you to implement new ways of working into your organisation through co-working, training and mentoring.

Replace a legacy system

We love the opportunity to create systems that are more powerful and easier to use. It’s often the smallest details in the legacy system, and how people interact with it, which are crucial to the success of a new build. Our developers will question each intricate detail until they have all the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle to make a perfect picture.

Streamline a business process

Bringing our experience in many techs and across many industries to the table, we will explore cost-effective options on how you can best make use of software to help your business grow. Attention to detail really counts here; a small tweak can make the biggest difference.

Extra help through a busy period

Our development team were hired on their ability to quickly pick up different techs and be productive in new teams. We are happy to work as an independent scrum team, or to fully integrate ourselves with your developers in a mixed team.

Develop an industry revolutionary idea

We bring insights from multiple industries to help you transform ideas into reality, using technology in innovative ways. Our collaborative Agile approach lets you see working software from the start, and to shape it as it is built and tested in the real world.

Remove reliance on spreadsheets

We will unpick your spreadsheet-based processes and introduce a host of new opportunities from new insights to greater collaboration with a new way of working. This could form the start of a new roadmap for your technological evolution!

Gain technical knowledge on a key application

Our support technicians will dig into the application and get an understanding of its fundamentals. We can then create a quick start guide for anyone using the application and train in house teams on how to support it.

Support through a sudden spike of work

Our agile support team can be reactive to your priorities and join your team whenever you need them; alternatively this resource can also be used proactively to add features or improve and de-risk areas of code.

Reliable availability of a business-critical application

Our retainer-based contracts guarantee availability of developers throughout business hours, without hiring your own full-time support engineer. The knowledge of your application is shared across our support team, plus you’ll have access to Ghyston technical knowledge from across the business.

Replacing a legacy system piece by piece

We can work with you to replace a risky legacy system in stages, so you can maintain your business continuity in the process. This requires a delicate approach which we’re able to achieve through our quality-centred development practices.
