Our Stack

We were an early adopter of the .NET platform, kicking the tyres since the very first beta some 20 years ago! and we use it, and web technologies to great effect. We deliver a suite of Desktop, Server, Web, and Hybrid Cloud software; all with an API that our customers, resellers, and partners can use to extend the software to encompass situations beyond what we had envisioned!

We are always looking at new technology and trying to stay ahead of the curve. Our principal technology stack is based on .NET Framework 4.8, but with the recent release of .NET 6 we are very excited to transition and unlock a new wave of capability for the future.

We have a mix of languages in place. As a heavy automator of other software including the SolidWorks CAD software and Microsoft Office, a significant part of the original code base is written in Visual Basic .NET which has served us very well over the years. However, over time, and especially since C# has caught up at interoperation, we also have significant C# usage, and C# is our focus for the future of our back-end stack.

On the front-end, our language of choice is TypeScript; we are huge fans of type safety as an aide to building robust, scalable software, with the ability to fearlessly refactor.

 

Location

We work in modern offices in converted barns in Thelwall, Warrington with easy access to the M56, M62 and the M6, and plenty of free on-site parking.

Our offices are a warm and welcoming environment with the latest technology and equipment, a pool table, a beer fridge, secret chocolate treats and a great team of enthusiastic people.
