Desktop Application Development

'we listen to your requirements before deciding what type of system we’re going to offer you...'

Although not as prevalent as Web Applications, Acumen still produce Desktop solutions where required.

  • Desktop development is more rapid than web development - so could save you money
  • Support for various operating systems including Windows 7, 8 and 10 (32 & 64 bit)
  • Older operating systems can be supported if required
  • A hybrid system comprising both desktop and browser based elements can be an excellent way of taking advantage of each environments advantages
A Desktop System may be the right solution
Most software developed today is browser based or aimed at the mobile market. Not that long ago virtually every application was a desktop system. Many people have forgotten about desktop development but there is still a place for it.
At Acumen we listen to your requirements before deciding what type of system we’re going to offer you. Whilst mobile applications / requirements stand alone the line between web based and desktop systems is far less defined.

The key thing to consider is that web development is more complicated than desktop development - particularly when it comes to displaying the information on screen. This means that a web page that displays exactly the same information as a desktop form will have taken longer to create. More time obviously means more expense. For this reason we always evaluate a project to determine which solution will give the client the best possible results for the lowest possible cost.

There are pros and cons to both desktop and web development - neither clearly outweighs the other - it is the nature of the project that will guide us to the correct solution.
