Ayrmer Software specialises in helping your business by making complex tasks simple. Our approach is founded upon the need to identify and understand the underlying issues and agreeing well-formed outcomes before suggesting a solution.
We approach projects in much the same way an architect would. Just like in construction, building a house without an architect's input would be disastrous. We combine our creative imagination and analytical logic with an understanding of your needs that ensures the solution will match up to your expectations and be successful in the task it is designed for.
In order to reach this level of understanding we ask you to undertake a series of workshops (fixed fee) for capturing business requirements. In return we will provide you with a detailed specification that includes fixed costs and time-scales for the development work. This approach prevents delays and increased costs caused by misunderstanding of your needs.
"I am enormously impressed at the level of professionalism that has given me a real confidence that Ayrmer Software will be able to deliver the solution our business needs to move forward."
Andy Jenner, Chief Technical Engineer, Centek Limited
"... to be honest, after being involved with other software companies this was simply refreshing!" Jonty Faulkner, Project Manager, 2WayTrust Limited
We knew we would need a bespoke database for Devon Artsculture, as the monitoring involved for our funders is quite detailed, with very specific requirements. We approached Ayrmer Software amongst other providers to tender, and Ayrmer Software really stood out against the competition as actually being interested in what we were doing, and willing to take the time to find out more about our project.
Being able to sit down with Ayrmer Software and talk through our needs was really valuable, and Charlie was able to interpret our requests into this database system that is really responsive to our needs. There was always someone at Ayrmer Software to offer support as we went through the initial start-up stages with the system, although it's an intuitive database so the additional work has really only been on tweaking and creating additions rather than needing support in using it.
Now that we've been using the database for a couple of months, I can honestly say it's worth its weight in gold. The amount of time saved, as we no longer have to compile new reports constantly and search around trying to retrieve data from various spreadsheets, is incredible. I don't know what we'd do without it.
The internet store (a rarity in itself when dealing with Lotus parts suppliers) is a pleasure to use and quite easy to navigate. What's more the basket function makes life easier with the ability to save and later append to a list of items for purchase.
If Ayrmer Software had taken and built what we had wanted they would have come up with something the probably wouldn't have worked. Once the specification for the system was agreed I met with Ayrmer Software's designer Alex, who came up with some designs to wow, based on the brief provided.
