Contract Software Research and Development

Many companies do not have sufficient resources to research and develop products during the vital early stages of new product development, or when the work requires specialist skills. Rather than taking on permanent staff, employing a professional contract software programmer or project leader may be the quicker and cheaper option.

We have helped a number of companies in the Ottawa area get started or improve their product offerings, including Watchfire (now part of IBM), Quadrillion, and Binomial International.

Can we help you too?

We offer particular expertise in C#/.Net, C++/COM, PHP, language design and parsing, network programming, distributed computation, data mining, algorithm development, and artificial intelligence.

Please contact us or find out more about our software development services.
