How Can Software Consultancy Help Me?

Software Consultancy comes in many different guises, from simple advice on the costs for an app, through to software integration considerations on business-critical systems, independent code reviews and coding best practice. Sapere offer all of these services and more and only ever recommend what is best for your business, even if that means Sapere don't benefit.

Some examples of software consultancy can be found below, but if you just want to talk to someone about your software project please get in touch.


Most businesses will have more than one software application managing different aspects of the business such as the CRM and the accounting package, which is fairly common. When these systems start to perform similar tasks, or capture similar data or have a need to share data then we can help integrate these together to drive efficiency savings for the business.

Code reviews

We can check code of any stage (production or development) and give honest, professional feedback on the quality, and whether it is fit for purpose regarding capacity for operating under load through to its future proofing. Often whilst code or an application is 'good enough' to work, it may not be optimised for future business directions or indeed be able to be used in ways you need going forward.

Development Best Practice

Being accredited and having many year's experience developing bespoke software applications from the ground up allows us to advise other developers on best practice on software standards and methodologies. These software standards and methodologies will enable your developers to produce quality code which you can be confident will support your systems in the most efficient way possible.

Web Development

The team always keep up to date with current and future development trends so are well placed to provide professional, informed advice on which technologies to base your development decisions. With an abundance of technologies being released annually, having a source which can advise on the best practice will ensure that regardless of the direction of new technology, the foundations of your software application are correct from day one.

Mobile Development

We can inform your business on the creation, submission and rollout of mobile applications and their integration with third-party software and systems. We primarily work with iOS and Android but have developed Windows Phone, Symbian and Nokia applications in the past before the domination of Apple and Google, so we know a thing or two about mobile app development.

Technology Recommendations

We can examine your aims and needs, and advise on the best way to use current technologies to achieve what you need. Whilst technology moves at a phenomenal pace, the core structures and ideas remain the same. With a long history of industry experience, we can make complex technologies easy to understand and boil issues and difficulties down to the core constituents, allowing you to make accurate and intelligent decisions.
