Red Dove Consultants

Software development experts.

Overview

Red Dove Consultants Limited is a software development and systems integration services company. Since our founding in 1996, we have a track record of delivering successful systems and projects to a wide range of well-known corporate clients.

Principles

We develop systems and deliver projects in line with some key principles.

We care about design

We pay close attention to a system’s architecture, so that inevitable change can be accommodated smoothly. Design is important to us! By getting it right, we find that much less time needs to be spent on support and maintenance.

We work with your business

We work closely with users and managers in your business, to get an excellent understanding of their processes, objectives and constraints. This enables us to deliver systems which are relevant to the people who must use them every day.

We deliver in stages

We believe in staged delivery – users get working systems early on, and later deliveries add more and more functionality until everything that was planned for is delivered. From the very first delivery, customers start to see business benefits and a return on their investment.

We are technology experts

We keep abreast of a wide range of technologies, so that we can properly assess how they can be harnessed to our customers’ advantage. More often than not, we advocate the use of appropriate technology rather than “bleeding-edge” technology which may not be mature enough to adopt.

We aim for mutual respect and trust

We seek to win our customers’ respect and trust, and as a result we get a high proportion of repeat business, as well as word-of-mouth referrals to new clients. This keeps our cost of sales low, and both we and our customers benefit.

An Invitation

If you think we may be able to help you, please contact us by telephone on +44 (0) 1923 226288 or send an email to sales@red-dove.com, and we'll arrange to meet you to discuss your requirements. Following this, we usually produce a free-of-charge proposal where we outline our understanding of your requirement, indicate a proposed solution, propose a programme of work and give cost and timescale estimates. If your requirements can be sufficiently well-defined, we can provide a fixed-price quotation: almost all of our revenue comes from fixed-price projects.
