Custom Application Development
After our products, Badger Software's core business has always been the design, development and delivery of custom applications for a wide range of private and public sector clients. This covers the full development lifecycle, from initial requirements analysis through functional specification, architecture and design, application development, testing and implementation.
Our consultants are highly skilled technically and will recommend the technology that best fits the solution and budget but also have real-world business experience and so our focus is always on the most effective solution for the task at hand.
We provide both browser based and “smart client” solutions, typically developed using Microsoft .NET technologies.
Please see our clients page for information on some of our previous projects.
Outstanding Support and Customer Care
Central to our approach is the importance of ongoing customer support. We believe that even the World's largest enterprises need personalised attention when it comes to misson critical systems.
Most of our clients take out long term Service Level Agreements with Badger Software because of our dedication to support, maintain and enhance the software we supply. Our team work with customers on an ongoing basis to evaluate their changing needs and to make sure their business receives unparalleled support.
Not only is our team there to help with our customers' ongoing needs, but we also listen to their needs for the future, and try to understand the business well enough to pro-actively find ways of doing things better. Some of our most valuable product suggestions come from the daily interaction between our team and our clients. We always strive to improve and make the best of new technologies and the ongoing exchange of ideas with our marketplace is what ensures we remain at the leading edge.

Cloud based or Hosted Solutions - Software as a Service (SAAS)
Cloud computing and hosted services are a huge topic currently. However there are a bewildering amount of services being provided from everyone from Google and Microsoft to new startups. The question everyone wants to know is “Is hosting right for me?” and of course “What is cloud computing and/or hosting exactly?”
Many organisations prefer to have control and maintain their own security around mission critical systems and data access. Others prefer to simply by software as a service and let an expert deal with the detail of how it is delivered. Badger Software believe that the pros and cons should be analysed for each individual client.
We dont profess to run our own hosting and value our independance. We use only the best, market leaders who provide hosting for blue chip companies and governments.
This allows us to give impartial advice and be free from contraints so that we can ensure that we put together the best package for each customer. But dont worry - if you dont want to know the detail, we will make all of the arrangements and you can relax in the knowledge that we have researched thoroughly and will ensure that the service levels you require are fulfulled.
What is right for you requires careful analysis taking into account factors such as your current IT lifecycle, technology requirements, culture, risk and infrastructure, such as communications links.
Because we retain our independance, we can work with your provider or select our own based on the best fit for the customer requirements.
Business Analysis and Database Design
Our main development platform for database development is Microsoft SQL Server. We have many years of experience with database design, which means that we know how to fine-tune the design to ensure optimum performance. We can also assist you with migration of data from other application platforms.
Information Worker Portals
Windows SharePoint Services and SharePoint Portal Server both provide efficient, cost-effective ways to share information across both ad-hoc workgroups and the entire enterprise. Badger Software can help you to make best use of these products, allowing your employees to work more efficiently on shared documents and data, and providing a single access point for organisation-wide information.
Providing corporate information and data through a single “portal” view also lends itself well to reporting and analysis data, as it gives information workers and executives a single access point for performance data, typically in “dashboard” format with the option to drill down to detail data. We provide our own generic portal which can leveredge this information for your entire organisation in a fast, easy to use and cost effective fashion. Contact us for more information.
We have been a member of the Microsoft "Mobile Solutions Partner" programme since very early on and are using the .NET Compact Framework and Mobile Internet Toolkit to develop applications which run on PocketPC and Windows CE devices and communicate with application and database servers over wireless connections.
Badger Software developed Figleaves’ Global Logistics Management software using Casio IT-500 CE.Net devices for many of the warehouse tasks such as inventory management and order picking. Click here for more information on this project.
Business Intelligence Solutions
Companies often have access to lots of data generated by their core business systems, but cannot easily turn this data into information. We can help you unlock this data using the Analysis Services and Reporting Services of Microsoft SQL Server.
Many users of every-day tools such as Microsoft Excel are unaware of the extra analytical power available once they create Pivot Tables and Charts connected to data stored in SQL Server Analysis Services cubes. Badger Software can provide consultancy and implementation services for your reporting analysis needs, including extracting and transforming data from other systems, development of client solutions, and best-practice advice on deploying the application.
Developer Resources and Mentoring
If your organisation is experiencing a developer resource bottleneck, we can provide skilled Microsoft .Net or SQL Server developers to get your project back on track. Alternatively, you make be using these technologies in your organisation for the first time, and could benefit from our experience to provide your development team with “best practice” advice. Get in touch and we can tell you how we can help you deliver your project on time and on budget.
