What we do
We create applications, whether web, cloud, mobile, or desktop based on a person's idea or by providing a solution based on a specification. Specifications can be supplied to us to follow, or we can create a specification formulating a software development proposal for a particular task.
most importantly Software Development gets the project from the drawing board to a commercial reality very quicklyJared Mann - Trading Software Pty LtdIdeas need solutions, and it can be a challenge at times to put all the pieces of an idea together to formulate a solution that is not just viable but also productive and achieves the goal of what it is designed to do. Putting the puzzle pieces together is where we come in, we take the idea, or ideas and formulate them into a complete solution for the target platform for platforms.
At Software Development we have successfully assisted people with bringing their ideas to life, which then allows them to form a viable business using the products we developed for them. Some have gone on to be worldwide best-selling products in their respected fields.
Other projects we have worked on include programs that help with building tunnels, managing clearance distance in helicopters, real-time data collection, collection, location aware data monitoring, geo referencing and mapping solutions, database systems, vibration monitoring and reporting, psychological based applications, SMS systems, SQL database solutions, tablet based software, info kiosk programs, information management systems, service management, medical imaging applications, artificial intelligence based applications, reporting services, games, mail servers, spam control systems, accounting and financial solutions, packaging and labelling applications used in companies such as Toll and many more.
We have worked closely with Steve Goodwin of Software Development Pty Ltd for over ten years. He has written a number of software solutions for our company Aeropower during this time and continues to provide our company with a quality service. All work tasked to Software Development has been carried out in a totally professional manner with Steve not only completing set software requirements but guiding our company to create the best possible outcomes in our software for our clients and our company. We highly recommend Steve and Software Development to any company requiring his services.Margaret Bell - Business Manager Aeropower Pty Ltd
The growing demand for mobile applications on Windows Phone and Surface Tablets is a enlarging market, and we assist in the development of applications to suit both platforms.
We don't just stop with development. We also help clients with business management, implementation, training, I.T. and other requirements they may have, including assisting with marketing and social networking tips, tricks and skills.
On occasion we also carry out computer forensic work and act as expert witnesses in regard to data theft or miss use.
How we develop
Using the latest development technologies, we assemble a team if required, or develop the solution in house depending upon the requirements. Different jobs require distinct talents, sometimes needing graphic designers, to sound engineers, mathematicians or other specialities.
Typically, most jobs will begin with a software or web development proposal that we prepare after first meeting with the client and working out what they require. The proposal will include costing, user interface overviews, program flows, class definitions, database design and other related information to allow the client to see what will happen during development. The proposal also helps to formulate that what we understand the client is actually what the client wants.
A good solution requires a solid foundation on which to build on as we know from experience all software grows over time. We don't just develop a quick solution for the job at hand, we also ensure what we design has a solid foundation for future growth.
Who we are
Software Development has a 20-year history first starting out as Goodwin's Computing Service in Marybourgh, Queensland, then moving to Brisbane and changing the business name to All Service & Software.
