hWe consult.

Awesome, you've got a brilliant idea for a software application - now what? Well, let us help.

We've been around the block a few times and we know what works and what doesn't. We know what's required to grow your software and we know what's just a waste of money.

  • Top quality guidance & advice from an experienced software development team
  • Assistance with managing or directing your own team of software developers
  • Systems architecture & design

hWe develop.

There's only one thing we love more than coffee, and that's cutting code. We know what we're doing and we know how to do it quickly.

For the business owner, this means you can concentrate on growing your business without worrying about the software keeping up. For the geeks, this means things like unit testing, data-store abstraction, dependency injection, distributed caching and all sorts of other yummy stuff. Booya.

This is what our clients say about our work.

Blackball Software were a great choice for our business. Fast, efficient, adaptable and able to problem solve all requests made the site better than what we had first conceived” hTom Howard, Onvine Director.
Blackball were simply 100% reliable to work with. It always felt like a creative partnership. Nothing was too much trouble and every request was dealt with urgently. Our initially vague ideas evolved into concrete, robust software more quickly than we could have imagined” hDavid Seedhouse, VIDe Ltd CEO.
We love you Ben (in a professional way of course)!! Don’t want you to get too famous though- maybe we should be saying how awful you are :)” hReg Price, MirrorWave CEO.
Blackball has solved our database issues. We love dealing with Ben. He listened to what we wanted, designed it, developed it and installed it, and it works brilliantly. And he has continued to work with us to enhance it as our needs have changed and grown. He talks our language, is responsive, efficient, quick and very cost effective. We highly recommend them” hPenny McGarry, Integrated Partners in Health Director.
Working in financial services, security was a prerequisite. Blackball’s knowledge and experience in building secure applications in a multi-tenanted environment was a major plus point for us.” hAdrian Pay, Dynamic GRC Director.

This is what we've done.


MirrorWave's unique concept required a vast range of development, including online questionnaires, automatic targeted emails and real-time animated charts. Chuck in a massive amount of data, multiple language & timezone support and a distributed system on Microsoft Azure and you can start to see why this is one of our most enjoyable & rewarding projects to date.
