I keep everyone pulling in the same direction, manage projects and still code on occasion. I've worked in just about every sector and if it can be programmed I've likely worked with it. I've built software for 'big stuff' like chemical plants and furnaces right the way through to radiation detectors for individual protection. I started in IT on a Spectrum 48k and I'm still doing it 35 years later...

I do lots of things, predominantly sales, systems analysis, strategy, operations. I got my start in IT working within the chemical industry employed by large American corporations to build process software. I then transferred those skills to working on large-scale transportation systems. My main strengths are bringing people and technology together to get results for businesses.

I deal with clients, code in all modern languages, and keep the plates spinning. I've worked across most industries and love the challenge of converting client requirements into something their staff or customers can use day to day.

I develop Android, IOS and .NET applications, deal with clients, and whatever else needs to happen. I've worked on large-scale public-facing mobile apps right the way through to industry-specific workflow applications. I take a lot of satisfaction in building scalable, people-focused applications which solve real-world problems.

I mainly work within c# and ASP.NET to produce applications for our clients. I take a lot of pride in producing applications that really involve the client and which have a positive impact on a business or its staff. I get a lot of satisfaction in seeing the software we build being used by lots of people day to day.

What we do

Sapere specialise in digital transformation via fully integrated bespoke software solutions across all modern platforms that deliver efficiency savings, innovation, value and a distinct advantage to your business or organisation.

This is an overview of the services we offer:

In addition to designing and building bespoke software systems, we also undertake maintenance and modification of existing systems.

If your business utilises software that was built a number of years ago and is based upon legacy technology this can restrict you from taking advantage of new developments. We can help you modernise your systems with minimal disruption in an efficient, logical way.
