With a complex brief for a bespoke case management system we approached a number of software developers but they were unable to evidence similar work and ultimately, unable to reassure us that they were capable of successfully undertaking the job.
We were then recommended Sapere by a number of different people and were assured from the first point of contact that they were the guys for the job as they confidently talked us through a portfolio of similar work. Sapere did a great job of deciphering our ramblings and keeping up with our ever-evolving brief. Each briefing session was followed up with a new iteration of a scoping document and when both of us were confident that everything was covered they got started with development.
The project did extend outside the original timescales but believe this was largely down to the growing nature of our project. That said, Sapere always strived to meet new deadlines and ensured he had a working demo version available for exhibition launch after some compromise on both sides. Now with a launched live system, Sapere are continuing to support us with ironing out the last few niggles and undoubtedly, will continue to support us with our after-care and beyond.

Sapere really delivered on this project. From the outset they took the time to understand each element of the business and then built a solution that not only met the needs of the business but developed a solution which can be adapted to suit the developing utilities market.
Andrew Richardson - Troocost CEO
We approached Sapere to help develop a bespoke App for our clients, Sapere managed to achieve this by thoroughly investigating our Company and Client's needs and achieved a high quality, efficient App which was professional and highly impressive. The communication from Sapere was excellent from start to finish and the overall Customer Service was second to none.
Libby Clemot–Escobar - Sales & Marketing Manager
The hallmark of a good app is how simple it appears to the end-user, however complicated it may be under the surface. Sapere developed an app to bring our library of walking routes to mobile devices and there were plenty of hidden complications, including in the management of our members' status and preferences and in the interface with the Ordnance Survey map server. The team at Sapere tackled the challenges with thoroughness and a dedication to the importance of the user experience, and worked well with our database developer in reaching elegant solutions. This is the sort of development partner you want on your side and I have no hesitation in recommending them.
David Stewart - Walkingworld - Owner
With Sapere's expertise and guidance, we now have a system that finally works, just for us, tailored exactly to our needs. The 'anything is possible' attitude and approach of the team led to the creation of software that does so much more than we knew was possible when we first got in touch. During development, Sapere worked closely with us from start to finish with patience and sound advice until the system was just right. We now use the software daily, for every aspect of our business and the benefits have been far-reaching. It saves us valuable time and resources, ensures we offer even better customer service and it has pulled our traditional charity right up to date in our use of technology
Michelle Scott - Foundations Furniture - Project Development Officer
Sapere Software had already been in discussion with the business before I came on board at Tilly Bailey & Irvine but from the minute I met Paul and his team I knew this had been a good choice. Understanding the logic for how things need to work in a user journey is mind blowing but Paul is a very calming influence. He guides you through your requirements every step of the way and he was very patient when we came to the testing stage. I am extremely happy that we now have a bespoke reporting CRM that can do so much for a growing law firm like ours. From my perspective to be able to track every single action taken through an online journey and to be able to measure ROI is paramount to my success as a digital marketer. I know that the firm has waited a long time for this and I feel sure it is going to make everything so much easier. We look forward to a long and lasting relationship and I would have no hesitation in recommending as their knowledge is second to none.
Sharon Williams - Tilly Bailey & Irvine - Marketing Manager
The team at Sapere are great! They turned my website aimeewillmott.co.uk into a bright, new, engaging site that is easy to use and helps promote myself and my business effectively. I have benefited greatly from their knowledge and personal input, and would highly recommend Sapere Software for personal webpages.
Aimee Willmott - Olympic Swimmer & Commonwealth Silver medalist
We found Sapere Software through an Internet search engine and invited them to tender for a project we were developing. The representative from Sapere completely understood the brief, took the details, asked all the right questions and then put together a very professional specification with a price. They were not the cheapest but not the most expensive either. We chose them because of their detailed specification and professional approach - they have not disappointed. The team at Sapere have built our software efficiently and professionally. They are patient, understanding and receptive to ideas and act on improvements we want to make. They have communicated with us throughout the process with updates and important information. I cannot recommend Sapere highly enough
Claire Duggan - Focus Education - Director of Operations
I've worked with Sapere countless times during an enjoyable working relationship now approaching a decade. I'll continue to work with them because of their limitless technical expertise and their ability to exceed expectations in everything I see them do. On top of this, they're a friendly bunch who always make you feel more than welcome. Very highly recommended.
Paul Coates - Pixel Pie - Managing Director
I approached Sapere Software earlier this year with a novel request to build a software system to support my business and they have excelled themselves. I now have a system that does precisely what I want in the way I want it and I commend both Shaun and his team for their efforts and their continued support. I wholly recommend the Sapere team to anyone needing bespoke software development work and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with them
David Powell - OR&A Ltd - Managing Director
Active Chartered Financial Planners have used Sapere's services for many years now for all of our software solutions inc Web Design, Web Hosting and most recently, building a brand new Client Management Database. If you are for a local, personal and knowledgeable IT service, then look no further than Sapere Software
Karl Pemberton - Active Chartered Financial Planners - Managing Director
We were recommended by another similar business to ourselves.We then used Sapere to build a completely bespoke system for us, we had meetings with Sapere to understand our requirements and having been given a written specification document outlining the technical components of the new system we were thrilled with the demo and then final system and liked the idea of everything being done in stages. We used the system last quarter for the first time and feedback from clients has been very positive. Having a new system built initially seemed expensive but the time it will save us on an ongoing basis soon outweighs any costs
Debbie Furniss - Corville - Director & Independent Financial Adviser
The new iGather app has really benefitted our company, lead follow ups are instant and we now have access to the exhibition economics. A real insight and a total game-changer for our marketing spend and direction. We now know if we need to send more resource or less resource to next years exhibition. An app we couldn't now live without...
Cathy Clark - KeepMoat - Events and Sponsorship Manager
We approached Sapere when the app developer who had created our audio guide to the Settle-Carlisle Railway retired. The app was no longer available in the App Store and some slight changes needed to be made to the home screens. We did not have a big budget for the project and our main priority was to ensure that the app was available for download as soon as possible. We did a good old Google search for app developers and chose to contact Sapere after looking at their helpful website. We also liked the fact that the company was based in the North of England.
From the very first point of contact, Sapere were extremely helpful. They explained what needed to be done in a straightforward way, and the agreement and payment terms were made clear from the outset. We felt that Sapere had fulfilled and done even more than we expected and were particularly helpful when it came to negotiating our way through the Apple Developer sign-up process. We hope to secure funding to make a complete update to the app, including an Android version, and we would certainly take that much bigger project straight to Sapere.
Josephine Shoosmith - Projects Manager - Settle-Carlisle Railway Development Company
AsbestosVault.com have been working with Sapere Software Ltd for over a year now and have always found the team to be extremely professional and easy to approach. The system they helped us to develop is exactly what we wanted and the follow up support has been outstanding - we would have no hesitation in recommending them.
Mark Armstrong - Asbestos Vault & HSE Vault - Sales Director
Collaboration with Sapere enabled us to introduce familiar apps technology in a novel application that has raised our profile, even in our high-tech, international marketplace. With Sapere, we had the advantages of working with a local company, which gave us an excellent product at a very reasonable development cost.
Martin West - BBSC - Business Strategist
We approached Sapere to provide e-commerce, hosting and video pay per view services using a subscriber service. Sapere provided digital downloads of our electronic material and a brilliant brand for the new company too. Sapere are highly, highly recommended!
Fred Barber - Prosoccer Keeper - Director
We had quite intense involvement with Sapere and they interpreted to the letter all our requirements and provided training at the completion of the project. I would recommend Sapere.
Ann Westerman - Castle Construction Limited
I worked with Sapere when they developed app based software for the charity I was running to support people with Autism. It was one of those moments were you build something in your head but think its probably not going to look like this in real life but when I saw the end product I was blown away. Not only was it what I had envisioned it was better than I could have ever realised. Sapere were very professional, kept to deadlines, informed me of progress and any barriers along with solutions. Would highly recommend Sapere and their work.
