Software Development

At iCef Solutions our primary aim is to create happy clients by developing custom software systems that realise the client’s vision. We also provide comprehensive support packages for completed projects to give our clients the peace of mind that we will be there for them when they need us. This way we remain confident in the knowledge that our clients will return to us if they need further development expertise. iCef Solutions has been successfully achieving this aim since 2012 and are committed to continuing to create happy clients far into the future.

Remote Office/Working from Home

In the current climate it is becoming more and more important to be able to access business systems from outside of the business premises. As there is uncertainty to how the business environment of the future will look it is ever more important to have flexibility in the ways that staff can perform their duties and business decision makers can keep their fingers on the pulse of the business.

iCef solutions since it’s inception has specialised in creating secure software systems that are accessible from any location that has access to an internet connection. This does not mean that anyone can access our systems, we provide peace of mind that your data is safe through secure logins and if required we can also restrict system access to specific locations as an added reassurance.

If you would like to discuss the creation of a remotely accessible software system please contact us here to let us know about your requirement. We provide an initial consultation with no obligation because we do not agree with aggressive sales tactics and prefer to win business on merrit and the confidence that you will receive the software system you need. 

 

Our Primary Tools:

.NET and SQL Server

.NET and SQL Server when used in combination can be used to create solid business solutions which will be supported for years to come. iCef Solutions specialises in ASP.NET/C#/SQL Server Web and Office based solutions to create user friendly software systems that can scale with the business growing alongside and complimenting the business processes rather than fighting against them the way that off-the-shelf packages sometimes can.

Although .NET and SQL server are the mainstay of our development tools we employ additional techologies as and when appropriate to compliment the development if will enhance system robustness, performance or the user’s experience.

If you are interested in discussing a business requirement please leave us a short message here and one of our staff members will get back to you shortly

Microsoft Access

We also have extensive expertise with Microsoft Access databases. Microsoft Access databases often created by businesses, often by a member of staff who learns the basics of MS Access development, to achieve a business requirement. Often these applications grow over time and then either the staff member leaves or becomes too busy to maintain the appliation which has grown to become much more than originally intended and offers functionality critical for the day-to-day running of the business.

If this sounds familliar then we are here to help. Feel free to copmplete the brief form here and one of our staff members will get back to you shortly.

About Us

Our staff have over 25 years experience in developing bespoke business software. Clients include Panasonic, DHL, the NHS and many small to medium sized businesses. We design robust database solutions that will stand the test of time and are always available if changes are required.

Our philosophy is that software should fit the business, not the other way around. As such we aim to develop bespoke business solutions which offer long-term software flexibility.

Specialising in database development we utilise MS Access or SQL Server depending on the requirement and scale of the project.

When working on development projects we aim to:

  • Work closely with clients and their staff throughout development cycle
  • Realise the clients vision as closely as possible
  • Create user friendly and intuitive software to minimise on training/cross-training
  • Remove manual process that would benefit from automation

At iCef Solutions Ltd we strive to give the best service possible and understand that every business model has its own intricacies that many off-the-shelf packages fail to cater for. This often leads to businesses being forced to change their business model to fit the software they are using. This in turn can force staff to ‘work around’ the software costing businesses time and money. We are firm believers that businesses benefit from having software built around their core working practices therefore improving productivity and growth.

The assumed cost of implementation can deter some companies from considering bespoke software for their business. A low cost base allows us to be highly competitive and we also do not charge for an initial consultation to discuss the project. With this in mind there is no harm in contacting us to discus your requirement.

Please contact us here if you would like to discuss a software project.
