What we do as a London based software development company

Our bespoke software services will give you an edge in the new digital era.

For any software development company, London is one of the best places to cooperate with other businesses. At HeadChannel we focus on the positives and eliminate the unnecessary to get to the core of your needs.

Our dedicated team is always ready to empower your software system with well-reviewed code and a results-driven agile process to take your company to the next level of development as soon as possible.

Website
management

Building on and maintaining your online web presence can be challenging, especially when your brand or company has to manage many websites. We support your website management responsibilities by performing a number of crucial functions. These include site and data backup, database optimisation, downtime preparation and management, check site load-time, removing redundant elements, checking website forms for vulnerability, and reviewing analytics just to list a few of them.

Mobile development

Mobile app
development

The mobile industry is growing, and rapidly changing the world of software development. Mobile apps are no longer just apps. Over time, they have become synonymous to prosperous and successful enterprises like Snapchat or Uber. Mobile visibility has become crucial if you want to win new customers. With us, you can build powerful, intuitive applications loved by large numbers of users.

Systems and apps
integration

Speed matters. Systems and apps integration, though sometimes challenging, is considered to be the most efficient way of bridging the gap between multisystem, often manual data management, and modern requirements of real-time communication that help to boost productivity. A well-planned and well-performed system or app integration has become a new source of competitive advantage.

Quality
assurance (QA) and
testing

Time to market matters, but time to profit is the real objective. For this reason, it is so important to be 100% sure that all applications are ready for release. QA testing allows us to verify if your software product is of the highest possible quality for your customers. It prevents unexpected issues arising with your software service or product. Your Quality Assurance (QA) testing methodology should ideally combine automated tests and manual testing. The key is to determine which type of test is most relevant for each aspect and stage of your software.

Bespoke software development in London and other areas

Successful products or services do not happen by chance. They are the result of a well-thought-out, well-designed and data-informed business strategy strongly supported by dedicated software solutions. Well-designed bespoke systems or applications are those that keep things simple. They take account of your business processes, apply the best tools, and allow you to keep full control as you grow your company. Agile development methodology provides a framework for quality custom software solutions we’re building day to day for our clients.

Software prototyping in
an agile
development model

Prototyping is used to test various aspects of a solution. It allows you to identify unexpected user behaviour, and spot problems or gaps in a concept. At this stage, the goal is to create an experience and provoke a response. Creating prototypes is at the heart of turning an idea into a product. We ensure that all of our software is built with well-reviewed code, result-driven agile processes and well-designed practices, to deliver IT solutions that can grow with your business.

More than just software.
Successful products or services do not happen by chance

We deliver results for the most demanding business needs. Our integrated approach to software development significantly reduces the risk of project failure, both in regards to costs and time-to-market.

Development on demand

On-demand software services allow companies to stay up-to-date with technology, have access to urgently needed skills and reduce costs and risks. With more than 15 years of experience in software development, we not only deliver smart software solutions but also provide comprehensive ongoing maintenance, technological support and further development.

IT consulting

Technology is no longer a function of your business, it is your business. Therefore we would suggest that IT consulting is more than simply giving advice, and we are sure that we only really bring value when theory turns into practice. We are practitioners. Our support brings tangible benefits. We leave our clients with sets of clearly defined IT roadmaps.

Team extension

We provide access to IT experts, not only with the right skills but also the relevant experience, which can be hard to find on the open market. Our developers, business analysts, project managers, QA engineers and technical team leaders can work both on-site and off-site. Our teams are flexible and scalable so that they can develop together with your company needs. We create the opportunities, and the decisions are yours.

IT outsourcing

IT outsourcing allows you to extend your capabilities and complete your projects on time and within budget. This is made possible with top quality software engineers, reasonable prices, offices in London and Katowice, a 2 to 3 hour commute from the majority of European capital cities, acceptable time differences, no language barriers and no cultural gaps. These are only the basic benefits of cooperation with a software development company such as ours.

We are particularly proud of these software solutions
