Welcome to Acumen Business Systems
The fact that you’re viewing this website suggests that you have a need for some bespoke software (having already discovered that no off-the-shelf applications work in exactly the way that you need).
You’re looking for an honest reliable bespoke software development company that you can rely upon for years to come.
A company that will take the time to listen to your requirements and spend time with you and your staff to fully understand your business.
A company that will charge a fair price for the work undertaken and, most unusually in the IT industry, will deliver the application for the agreed price, in accordance with the signed-off specification and On Time.
Congratulations – you have just found that company.
So what makes us different to so many other bespoke software development companies?
The fact that Acumen doesn't have any products (we only produce bespoke software) means that our reputation means everything to us. We need our existing customers to value and respect us as suppliers because it is from these people that you’ll probably be seeking references before you commit to working with us. Anyone can supply the details of one or two customers that are willing to provide potential customers with a good reference. We always supply the details of as many customers as are relevant to the proposed new project (often 6 to 10 contacts) so that you can cherry pick the people to whom you wish to speak.
Our team isn’t large but it’s big enough to cope whilst also being small enough to care. If a project was too large for us to be able to cope then we would rather turn it down. We will never out-source a project – all code is written in our office in Coventry in the UK.
We use the latest development technologies (Microsoft's Visual Studio .NET 2010 and SQL Server 2010) to ensure the longevity of your application. Such technologies often enable us to work more quickly than would have been possible in the past which in turn means that our charges are proportionally reduced.
At the end of each project we always give our customers the source code and a letter confirming that they own the intellectual property rights (IPR) to their application. Not all software development companies are happy to do this because they want to make sure that you can't go elsewhere for upgrades and modifications. We like to give our customers the opportunity to leave us - so that they'll stay.
Hopefully having read the above you’re still thinking that you might be interested in working with Acumen Business Systems. Have a look through our extnesive portfolio of previous projects (everything from simple websites to comprehensive Desktop & Web based solutions) and then give us a call to discuss your requirements.
