Automate away the tiresome tasks

If you have a mid-size business (50-250 employees), and business is going well, but custom software could improve your business' inner workings, we can help you make the right technical decisions, to ensure your custom software remains flexible and responsive to changes in your business domain.

We specialize in helping businesses that have reached the point where off-the-shelf software is no longer solving all their problems.

If your employees are spending a lot of time on boring, routine tasks, with no readymade product available to help, it's time to build custom software for your company. Unfortunately, there are a lot of pitfalls when doing this, and software often ends up being expensive and needlessly restrictive (we have written a short document in Danish about some common issues).

If custom software works, it helps free up your employees' time for important work; and it changes with your business even as requirements in your business domain changes. A common process for building custom software is using requirements specifications to ensure precise delivery of features, but this process has the negative effect of making the software development process rigid, and is often connected to slow deliveries of working software, often resulting in software that doesn't fit an ever changeable business context.

We try to solve these problems with our approach to building custom software for midsize businesses. We build an inhouse team that works closely with you management and employees to ensure alignment with business goals and concrete work processes, as well as employee buy-in for new software. We don't use requirements specifications.

We work in quick increments, delivering small bits of value to your business quickly. We always focus on the biggest (most costly) problem, and fix that first. By constantly working with your employees, and making sure our software solves real problems, and modifying solutions until they fit their work, we end up with better solutions than could have been described in a requirements specification.

If it seems like we might be a good fit for your needs, get in touch. We will set up a trial period of a month, after which you can evaluate the work we have done and get out with no strings attached, if you are not satisfied—and the work we have already done will belong to you.

Not what you are looking for?

If you are building a product that will be used by your customers (as opposed to an internal product used by your employees), we can help you get started right.

Alternatively, if you already have a system that your employees, but it's time to build something new, we can work with you to move onto a more flexible and fitting system.

You own the code

The products of all the work we do for you, belongs to you. We will set it up so you can easily access the work we produce, and are always ready to hand over all work in progress if you request it.

If you ever stop working with us, nothing of value will be lost, and you can get other developers to take over.

We start with your concrete situation

We specialize in looking at your business needs, and helping you identify the fastest path towards solving your problems. We help incorporate both short and long term goals in the planning of software development, and always look at where software can have the biggest impact per expense.

Concretely, we regularly meet with both your management and employees to ensure that we are building the right thing. We can take changes to your business domain into account as they happen.

We regularly and rapidly deliver useful software that solves real problems, so your business starts getting more efficient shortly after we start working with you.

We can help with tech strategy

Your company is probably used to making decisions about company tools and which off-the-shelf products are used by your company. Building custom software is a different kind of beast—but don't worry, we can help with strategies and technical decisions related to this part of your company's technology.

We will assist your existing CTO and work with them to make a strategy for custom software development that aligns with your business goals, and extends further than just the initial software we're building for you.

We are a full-service dev team

We have experience in a broad set of technologies, programming langauges and frameworks. We are most proficient as full-stack web developers, but have experts in infrastructure (Docker, Kubernetes, AWS, etc.), application design (including microservice architectures), and UX.

We train all employees to be quick at getting up to speed in new environments and code bases. We can probably help with your problem, no matter the tech stack—but you can always contact us to make sure.

We will get you set up for your future journey

We love helping businesses succeed, and feeling like we have a tangible impact. A great way to help a business succeed is to make it sustainable.

If you choose to work with us, we will help you hire your own inhouse development team, once you are ready. We will help train them, ensure a good, constructive process for software development, and even offer to regularly mentor and guide employees if you are interested.

In short, we don't just make it easy to get rid of us, when you are ready for the next step—we'll help you do it.

The contact form runs on our tiny open-source contact-form-api, which is highly configurable, and is easy to use for your business, too.

It runs as a separate service, and comes packaged with a Dockerfile, so it takes minutes to launch it on your own infrastructure.
