As our name suggests, we specialise in computer code and many of the programming languages designed in the 1970s through to the present day. Each have their purpose and are forever evolving adding features for developers and improving performance. With our skillsets, there are no limits in terms of what can be achieved due to the computer levels we work at.

We strive to move organisations forward, the smallest of code can prove to be as benefitial as the large and complex, so no problem is too small.


We design and develop new desktop and online multi-user web application software to achieve tasks in the minimum time possible with 100% accuracy and tailored to your exact requirements. Further, we can extend the software with an API for your clients to integrate the software into their products.


We can analyse and report on your existing solutions, improve, or enhance them using third party APIs such as Google Maps (e.g. providing destination times or locations), or re-write to improve further development and maintenance or to take advantage of new cloud technologies.


We deliver expert software consulting ranging from concept development, requirements analysis, and technology selection through to software development on a competitive hourly rate.


Whether software is required for a new business venture, or there are no products available to meet your demands, a new software solution can be developed. With a tailor made solution, we start from the ground up, building the blocks to your exact requirements. As your business evolves, features can be added on an ad-hoc basis. Manual tasks are constantly being transitioned to computer software to reduce both time and cost. Data is held in a database and becomes searchable saving time finding paperwork.


There are many software solutions on the market to achieve tasks and hold data, many of which will meet most of your demands but not all. You may find yourself using several products to achieve your goals and possibly using manual methods to fill in the gaps. Many products expose an API (Application Programming Interface). Although the decision of what is included in the API is with the manufacturer, API's generally allow developers to extract data from the application to be used elsewhere and insert data to the application. Therefore software can be developed which utilises each of the applications APIs joining the products seamlessly.


If you repeat the same manual task hourly, daily, monthly, or yearly, the task is very likely to be automated using computer software. This will reduce both time and cost, and once setup you can literally forget about the task as it's all handled for you!


Since 1991, coding has been our passion.  This passion has presented opportunities to work within companies to create advanced multi-threaded software in C++, C#, and Java on a variety of platforms for live TV, finance, and the military.  Our skill set is ever expanding with the advance of technology moving towards web and mobile.
