Helping you to realise your business vision
You have a long-term vision for your business – your ultimate future reference point. Whenever youdebate or decide upon an objective, a strategy or a goal, right there at the forefront of your planning, will be that vision.
One thing is for sure. If you're to achieve that vision quickly, smoothly and effectively, you will need to harness the potential of cutting-edge technology and software.
To appreciate the full extent to which software will drive your business forward, you need
- a deep understanding of your specific business operation and market
- an awareness of all the available technology solutions.
Working in partnership with a software company that offers consultancy services can help you understand and maximise the potential that software can bring to your business - not only immediately but in the longer term too.

Functional Specification –why it matters
Don't take the risk of skipping a functional specification with your software development project. Having a clearly thought-out plan will inevitably save you time and money in the long run.
The functional Specification is a detailed description of how the programme will work. The benefit is that it forces you to look at every aspect of your software development, including how it will actually be used. This is the closest you can get to a guarantee that your software will work as you need it to.
Building the functional Specification
Following the initial consultation process, we prepare the first draft of your functional Specification. This is an iterative process that can involve input from several different departments. At each iteration, we consult with your project team to ensure that the current version satisfies your needs.
Here's what afunctional specification typically looks like -
- System overview
An overview of the proposed system, such as a functional block diagram, i.e. a graphical representation of the system showing the relationship between inputs, processes, data storage and outputs.
- Software functions
The facilities (or services) required of the software - the functional components are refined and specified as detailed processes (e.g. data transformations) which operate on data passed to them.
- Software interfaces
- user interfaces (e.g. look and feel, input, displays, hard copies) - system interfaces (e.g. comms protocol, input/output format, hardware subsystems).
- Non-functional specifications
Examples include performance, scalability, compatibility, efficiency.
