We are technical problem solvers. This is what we do.

As a Microsoft Partner, Transparity specialises in custom software development for the Microsoft Platform, building bespoke modern cloud-based applications.

Helping organisations improve efficiency and gain a competitive edge. These include new systems for mid-size and large enterprises, non-profit and the public sector, and also for start-ups. As Azure experts, we are perfectly placed to develop your custom software with the most modern technology available.

“People didn’t think this type of connectivity was possible within this budget, but through the quality of engineering of Transparity, the quality of the development team fronted up with the PM alongside the APPCAN input in terms of UAT and direction, we successfully delivered on time and in budget as stated”

Flexible Custom Software Solutions

As well as fully cloud-native applications, we are in place to help you with on-premise or hybrid development, mobile solutions or bespoke desktop applications.

Web Development

Modern web applications hosted in Azure or a data centre delivers secure access to users wherever they are. This enables staff to work from any location seamlessly, and clients to access data and interact with your organisation directly, providing greater efficiency and economy for scale and growth.

Mobile Development

A bespoke mobile application can help your organisation’s efficiency, increase collaboration and provide real-time data to improve information delivery to your staff and customers. Key to this is Xamarin technology, allowing rapid cross-platform development of mobile applications for iOS and Android applications.

Desktop Development

There is still the need in some circumstances for desktop or local network-based new custom software applications. For example, systems that need to operate offline for extended periods – such as developing country field-operations, or charities working in remote regions. Transparity can cater for all development requirements.

Our Software Development Process

Our management team is hands-on, your Project Manager always keeps you informed, and your delivery team are all Microsoft experts, doing what they do best.

When we develop bespoke software for you, we’d like you to think of us as a partner – your flexible outsourced IT partner. Here for you, at every stage of the software engineering journey.

Our software development process:

  • Scoping
  • Design
  • Environment configuration and CI/CD (Continuous Integration and Deployment) covering automated deployments to TEST, UAT and LIVE
  • Development – Software Engineering
  • Documentation
  • Sprint planning & reviews
  • Testing, manual and automated
  • UAT testing support

After custom software development projects are delivered, we offer:

  • Mentoring and handover to your internal tech team if required
  • Optional ongoing support for your system, in line with a Service Level Agreement
  • Azure hosting, Managed Services and licensing, if required

Our flexible approach

Flexible Development is our own unique delivery method and describes a practical blend of waterfall and agile software development, and with it, we are guaranteeing our expertise, honesty and partnership to deliver successful project outcomes, on time and in budget.

Development and support of cloud-based software is core to our business and has been since the move to browser-based software systems.

Our pioneering work includes online enterprise business systems developed for the likes of GE, Hitachi, Hewlett-Packard, and many more. This expertise continues today with a focus on the Microsoft Azure Cloud and supporting all aspects of migrating custom-developed enterprise business systems to Azure.

Our specialisation is the design, development and integration of custom enterprise software systems. We focus our expertise on Microsoft .NET/SQL and Azure cloud application development.

On-premises based software remains a vital requirement today, particularly where specific security or legislative requirements demand it.

Also, there remains a legacy of working enterprise systems deployed on-premises, which will continue to require enhancements, upgrades and support for the foreseeable future, saving the costs of replacement. We continue to develop, enhance and support enterprise systems for on-premises deployment, for clients including the NHS, Transport for London and other public institutions.

Application modernisation is the redevelopment or enhancement of legacy software systems to align them with changing business needs in order to create renewed and future business value from existing applications. Transparity is an expert in consulting on implementing application modernisation programmes so that on-premises systems continue to deliver value and save on the costs of replacement. Application modernisation programmes can also include integrating legacy systems with new online systems (such as Microsoft Navision, Salesforce, etc.), as a hybrid solution.

Mobile functionality is now central to many, if not most new custom business systems.

Enabling mobile and distributed staff as well as external clients and partners to access systems, view data, and interact with them has become crucially important for business efficiency. In fact, today, in most cases we ensure our new-build systems are natively mobile-enabled from the outset.

Key to this is Xamarin technology, allowing rapid cross-platform development of mobile applications. And where required, we can also develop native iOS and Android applications.

Hybrid systems refer to an amalgamation of public and/or private cloud systems, on-premises systems or a combination of these. Connected they provide interoperability, access, and visibility of data and business collaboration.

The key value of hybrid systems is retaining existing deeply embedded and highly valuable back-office systems, and adding cloud systems ‘on top’ of these to enable extended functionality and data visibility. Most systems can be connected using API or other functionality, and where appropriate, Azure Integration Services and/or BizTalk Server provides a full enterprise connectivity layer to deliver massively complex systems integrations.

As one of the leading experts in Azure Integration Services and Microsoft BizTalk Server in the UK, Transparity is one of the very few select companies that can fully support a hybrid enterprise system. We do this with our consultancy, project, and team augmentation services.

App Development Customer Stories

TREND Networks was looking for a differentiator in the market and wanted to add easy reporting to their range of testing equipment.

The situation that we were presented with was to provide an MVP build to support the new loyalty program, Virgin Red. Virgin had an existing loyalty program hosted on-premises that they wanted to retire.

With 92% of its total income coming from donations and legacies, the RNLI’s public-facing website is a critical tool for generating awareness and for fundraising.
