    Search Engine Optimization

Advantages of Sub-contracting your Software development

Most businesses today depend to a greater or lesser extent on software, and eventually every management has to confront the issue of whether it should be an in-house activity or sub-contracted out. 

Details of our specialisations 

Since software development is what we  do, we have a range of specialised skills to meet your requirements in a cost effective way. The breadth of expertise at your disposal can produce greater value for money vs an in-house developer, acheived through increased skill sets, reduced development time, and the ability to scale up and down to meet your requirements. We also also have thousands of hours of experience in what works and what doesn't, so we can often avoid common pit falls and contribute to the building of an effective strategy.



  1.  Specialisation: Do not ask a graphic designer to build a database, do not expect your server network expert to be able to build a state of the art website, do not waste the time of a top coder on providing telephone support to  end users with limited IT expertise.
    If all your IT is provided in house, you are either over staffed or compromising on the quality / expertise you need.
  1. Good software engineers need to be able to test themselves against their peers, otherwise they will rapidly become out of date as the technology of their specialisation moves on. Each individual will develop their own area of expertise eg implementing email control systems, or linking to PayPal or implementing a CMS; and doing these things again and again brings enormous efficiency dividends.
  1. Risk. If you have a single person responsible for all your software, what happens when they are ill, go on holiday, fall under a bus or simply get another job?

We understands these issues and provides a really cost effective alternative to hiring the extra in-house programmer.  We will work as part of your team and only charge for the time spent on your business. If you have a large scale development that you want to undertake, we can resource it, and then when you want to limit your spend, we can scale back our activity.  You have total control.

Our teams all work within the same basic framework so even though there will always be one lead project manager who becomes intimately familiar with the intricacies of your business, their coding styles are sufficiently similar for anybody in the group to pick up the job in the case of an emergency.

Our reporting structure (through Basecamp) enables you to see on a month by month basis, exactly what is being done and control which issues should be given priority

TheDevTeam is dedicated to providing excellent software development support that will enable you to innovate in your business and we have many clients that we have been working with for more than 10 years.

Source code recovery

Losing source code can leave you in a costly predicament. If the software is important, the cost of redeveloping it from scratch is extremely painful. We can ease the burden by recovering large parts of your lost code and giving you back control.

Bridging the Gap for Construction

Many companies feel torn between buying big and expensive suites of software that require wholesale changes to the way the business is run, with all the training costs and dislocation that this implies; and building bespoke software that might be harder to maintain in the future. We offer a bridging solution.
