Software Consultancy

Discovery. Analysis. Architecture.

For mission-critical software that scales new heights.

We work with clients for whom software is mission-critical.

For whom making the right technical decisions, at the right time, is imperative to the continued success and growth of their businesses.

And so we provide a team that is committed, proven and creative. As well as endlessly excited about the potential of what can be achieved.

 

Requirements Gathering

The more we ask, the more we understand. And the more we understand, the more answers we have.

In a nutshell, that’s why we place so much importance on requirements gathering. It’s one of the the most crucial activities we undertake because it’s only when we’re armed with the right information that we can get off to the best possible start.

 

Code Reviews

Whether you’re about to embark on a new development project or make improvements to what’s already there, a code review can give you the confidence you need to move forward.

At Cooldatasoft our developers and consultants have performed code reviews for clients including BSkyB, HSBC, Expedia, CIsco analysing large, complex systems that are often business-critical. And we can do the same for you too.

 

Software Design

Complex software requirements often require a creative software solution – something that can’t be bought off the shelf.

It’s why our software designers will help deliver a software specification for you that targets your exact requirements, processes and business environment. These thoroughly-researched, tailored technical specifications provide a single, central point of reference for all teams involved on your project, minimising risk, reducing cost and speeding up your time to market.

 

Software Development

An established and proven software development company, we have decades of experience creating software solutions for some of the world’s leading enterprise organisations.

It means you can trust us to deliver high-performance applications and websites that fuel growth and profitability. And you can trust our robust agile process focused on communication, collaboration and iteration to deliver you software that’s perfectly aligned with your goals.

 

Software Testing

Many systems managers are fearful of their software failing, all too aware of the effect it can have on the profitability of their business.

Our expert consultants however can help you develop software testing strategies and quality assurance procedures that will help to identify any potential vulnerabilities in your process, highlight opportunities for efficiency or cost savings, and minimise risk.

 

IT Consultancy

When it comes to IT infrastructure, what you want is to be future-proofed.

To know that your systems are robust and dynamic enough to cope with whatever is around the corner, whether that’s new technologies, changing digital requirements, or business growth.

 

Strategy & Planning

Engagement. Innovation. Growth.

Transform your organisation with digital strategies that scale and flex as you do.

In a digital landscape that’s constantly changing and evolving, you need a clear strategic plan. 

A plan that’s robust enough to stay aligned with long-term business goals – yet flexible enough that you can take advantage of new trends and technologies as they emerge.

A plan that delivers agility in the face of market disruption. And rapid scalability during periods of business growth.

Cooldatasoft for when predicting the future seems impossible.

 

Digital Audit

Survey the digital landscape, identify your next steps, and pave the way for success.

When it comes to defining your digital strategy, knowing where you are is just as important as knowing where you want to go.

After all, it’s only by understanding the current market, industry and wider digital landscapes – and your place within them – that you’ll be able to identify the most lucrative opportunities available to you.

So when you may be struggling to see the way ahead, let Cooldatasoft’s consultants guide you. Our digital audit provides you with the insight you need to unlock this understanding – putting the power squarely in your hands.

Roadmap Planning

Put your digital strategy on the road to success.

You’ve done the research. You know your market. Your goals have been set. But where do you go from here?

For the structure and long-term vision needed to keep you on the path to success, an effective roadmap is essential. It will help you identify necessary technology updates, plan for cultural change, enable the recruitment of new team members and give you a crucial point of reference from which to establish a shared understanding of future direction.

Our consultants can support your roadmap planning, leaving you with a clearly-prioritised set of next steps.

Measurement & Optimisation

Define. Test. Measure. Refine.

Continuous improvement of your digital KPIs, for a strategy that grows along with your organisation.

Continual improvement: it’s the holy grail for many organisations. But how can you improve if you’re not able to effectively judge the success of your activity?

That’s where our measurement and optimisation services come in – and we’ll begin by understanding exactly what your digital goals are.

As customers become increasingly savvy this means going beyond the surface too,  to uncover what will move your users along their journey towards the final interaction or point of sale. But with these goals in place, you’ll be able to truly measure how well your digital initiatives serve your business.

Agile Transformation

Be focused. Be flexible. Be better.

Unlocking the power of Agile is about so much more than implementing a software development methodology; it requires a cultural shift across teams and organisations.

At Cooldatasoft we’ve helped numerous organisations make this shift, having delivered consultancy services to clients across a diverse set of industries from a sporting governing body through logistics and automotive firms to universities and membership institutions.

Agile Couching

Transformative Agile coaching from experienced Agile practitioners.

Unlocking the power of Agile is more than a question of implementation, requiring instead a complete cultural shift both within your team and the wider organisation. 

As practitioners of Agile themselves, our coaching team understands this reality and therefore design their sessions to provide you and your team with the knowledge and skills needed not just to do Agile, but to be Agile – responsive, flexible and nimble yet constantly focused on the goal in hand.

 

User Experience & Design

Exceptional, award-winning User Experience & Design services.

Leave no user interaction to chance.

We all know that a good user experience should be instinctive, natural, and effortless. But at Box UK we also have the decades of experience to make it so.

Working with international organisations across a broad range of industries, our UX consultants have built up a portfolio of successful and award-winning projects that speaks for itself.

With clients such as HSBC, BSkyB, Expedia, Cisco, we have proven time and again that the benefits of investing in user experience are not only far-reaching but also long-lasting – positively impacting on user satisfaction and business performance.

Expert Usability Review

This usability audit helps you continue to iterate and improve digital products for long-term returns.

Want to validate the success of a recently-launched project, or do you already know that aspects of your digital strategy are underperforming?

Whatever your goals, an expert usability review can deliver insight to help you make significant improvements to both user satisfaction and business performance.

From websites and online portals through to multi-channel and e-commerce experiences, we can review any of your digital products and services to assess how well they adhere to good UX practice and key accessibility and usability standards.

Usability Testing

Let your users point the way – with expertly-executed usability testing, for unbeatable user insight.

When you’re committing long-term investment to the development of a new product, or to improving the performance of your current digital channels, you need the highest levels of confidence before you commit to any decisions.

At Box UK our consultants have hundreds of hours of user testing under their belts for clients, across a wealth of industries – not least FMCG, finance, membership and education – and we offer a number of different usability testing solutions that fit the bill no matter what your particular need.

Catering to your unique timescales and environments, our testing programme allows you to understand user behaviour, giving you the confidence you need to make decisions about features and roadmaps as well as satisfying your stakeholders that budgets are being appropriately spent.

 

Web and Mobile Development

Websites. Applications. Mobile solutions.

All precision-engineered.

Enterprise DevOps and Continuous Delivery

For businesses today, software-driven innovation is the new source of competitive advantage. To increase agility and improve the customer experience, there is a growing need for organisations to increase the frequency and quality of their software releases. DevOps is an integrated approach to software delivery that helps transform an organisations culture, processes and tools. Our DevOps services extend across the lifecycle and support both digital customer-facing systems and large-scale enterprise products. Our specialists work with you to analyse, design and implement end-to-end deployment pipelines and to establish or update continuous integration capabilities using modern tools and methods.

Digital Product & Service Development

The growth of digital has created unprecedented opportunities for organisations to engage and interact with their customers. Every organisation will have to decide how they respond, striking the balance between enhancing existing products and creating new ones. We help our customers harness the benefits of mobile, web and cloud technologies to digitally transform their business. Using agile methods to improve time to market, our services cover the entire software lifecycle encompassing the design, development and launch of new products and services, and the migration of existing applications to the latest technologies. We have extensive expertise in enterprise technologies including Amazon AWS, Mobile, Android, Java and full JavaScript frameworks.

Agile Transformation and Delivery

To be competitive in the digital age, businesses need to achieve agility at scale. Agile software development is a key differentiation and brings with it benefits including faster time to market, higher quality products and satisfied customers. However, achieving agility requires more than just a software development methodology – it requires structural, cultural and technology changes that impact across the organisation. Cooldatasoft has robust capabilities in agile development, DevOps and cloud and we are currently working with a growing number of organisations to transform their delivery capability through the introduction of advanced agile thinking, processes, tools and techniques.

Our framework follows a number of defined phases and encompasses key questions that ensure focus remains on the outcomes of your transformation programme. We offer flexible and bespoke assurance services tailored to your needs. Our assurance services can be engaged to assure software testing, delivery of work programmes or individual projects, or to assess specific functional disciplines, covering structures, process maturity, resource capability and tool utilisation.

 

Testing

The emergence of digital technologies combined with increased customer service expectations makes testing and quality assurance more challenging and important than ever before. The extraordinary impact digital is having on the way businesses interact with their employees, customers and each other is pushing every organisation to rethink its approach to testing. No longer a supporting capability, testing is now a strategic driver of competitive differentiation. Cooldatasoft’s independent testing and quality assurance services help organisations address these challenges. Our testing methods are well structured and easily adaptable. We deploy modern testing techniques and tools such as requirements validation and traceability, risk-based testing, automated test design and processes to support agile test models.

 

Environments and Data Management

Many organisations maintain permanent test environments to support the on time delivery of projects. Managing these environments and the associated data requirements, consistently and efficiently across the testing lifecycle for multiple projects can be costly and time consuming. Growing complexity in systems architecture and increasing demands on test environments only add to the challenge. Our test environment and data management services provide the additional expertise required to design and implement fit for purpose test environments, manage data effectively and identify the level of test environment support required to ensure effective test execution.
