Software Project Rescue
If your bespoke software project’s gone wrong or you’ve fallen out with your software developer, we can quickly get your business back on track.
There are lots of reasons why bespoke software projects fail, or your new software isn’t fit for purpose; but the fallout is usually that you’re left in a mess with an incomplete or failing system and a business that’s suffering as a result. Your priority is to get things back on track and fast.
Why Do Software Projects Fail?
Don’t panic. This is where DCSL GuideSmiths come in. We have helped a variety of different clients, both large and small, recover from troubling situations such as:
- Offshore outsourced projects that are poor quality or unfinished
- Software produced that isn’t fit for purpose
- Development companies or developers going out of business mid-project
- A developer is an independent consultant and has moved on
- Falling out with a development company or developer due to project slippage or poor quality
- Software produced uses bad or outdated programming languages
