Simon Hooper - Systems Development & IT Manager | Pendennis Shipyard Ltd
Being a multi-million pound turnover company, the control of costs and accurate invoicing to the client is a key requirement and a large part of the IT function. Historically as a company Pendennis have tried to do as much software development in house as possible. However although the timesheet process had been evolving over several years it was felt that the level of integration provided by the previous timesheet system was not sufficient to keep it in line with the company's objectives. It was decided to look at designing and implementing a system that best supported the processes at the company and allowed for more efficient use of Supervisors time. Pendennis had two options, design and build the system in house or look for a 3rd party to develop it for us. After a visit to the Pool Innovation Centre and a meeting with Mark Jennings I decided that n-Coders were the right choice to undertake this project.
The project was delivered on time and on budget largely due to the ability of n-Coders to understand the problems involved and present suitable solutions. A well documented design and implementation process meant that there was virtually no downtime in switching between the two systems. Throughout the whole process there were regular meetings providing feedback about how the system was progressing. When change was identified as being needed n-Coders were able to provide solutions effectively.
A year down the line we are now entering Phase 2 of the project, the framework for which is already in place due to a well thought out initial design process in Phase 1. The decision to use n-Coders has benefited Pendennis and forged a good partnership. It has been a pleasure working with all the members of their team and I would recommend them to other company's looking to undertake development projects.
Bill Mann - Managing Director | Energy Light Bulbs
Being one of the UK’s leading suppliers of energy saving lightbulbs, with several warehouses it is important that we have software that makes management of stock easy. We had tried many off the shelf stock control systems, but we found them difficult to use. Realising that we wanted something bespoke to our business, we approached n-Coders to build us a bespoke stock control system with hand held scanners. The system they developed for us is excellent, and we find it very easy to use. They came to our offices to provide training, they are friendly and helpful, and nothing is too much trouble for them. They offer great after sales service always there when we needed them. The software really was a great investment!
Elliott Green - Systems & IT Manager | Two Legal Services
Since we started working with n-Coders the technology they have produced for our business has been extraordinary, we have been able to save valuable man hours by automating some of our most labour intensive processes, this has also meant the quality of our business has improved as with automation comes less chance for human error, I would recommend their services to anybody as they are a fantastic team to work always have time to keep you informed and make sure you are getting exactly what you want.
Simon Heap - Managing Director | Rugged Interactive
n-Coders have been a real asset to Rugged Interactive, they’ve always strived to adapt and meet our often conflicting and unreasonable requests as well as our immovable timescales. I’d recommend them to anyone looking for adaptable and high quality software engineers.
Adam Brown - UK IT Manager | NetBooster
We have been a client of n-Coders for a few years now, primarily for the upkeep and development of one of our legacy applications. Mark quickly familiarised himself with both the system and code and has since recommended and implemented a number of upgrades both to the code and server hardware to greatly improve performance, usability and disaster recovery.
We have also recently used n-Coders services to automate financial calculations and populate them into our existing project management & invoicing tool saving many man hours. Mark is always contactable and often goes above and beyond the call of duty to help achieve our goals on budget.
David Christen - Managing Director | 247Booking
n-Coders have looked after our Linux servers and data backups for a number of years now. They offer a very professional and proactive service and I know that they will be there when we need them, day or night to help us with our servers and software.
Mike Morris | Capersidate Ltd
We first approached n-coders as part of a competitive tendering exercise to find the best all-round partner to develop our software application and, as this application is the core of our company, become a key partner to our organisation. Unlike so many of their competitors, n-coders prepared a carefully thought out, appropriately qualified response containing clear value-added elements. Our decision to select n-coders was one that we have never regretted, as they have repeatedly gone above and beyond the scope of the contract to offer ideas and suggestions for the growth of our product. The development of the application has been exemplary, even though our requirements were sometimes vague and partly defined, as they have worked with us and provided considerable input into the scope. We have therefore taken the decision to ask n-coders to take responsibility for all of our ICT needs, including networking systems, telephony and computer hardware. We are pleased to offer an unqualified endorsement and recommendation of n-coders to their potential clients.
Mark Nunney | Alban Digital
Mark [n-Coders founder and owner] has worked with us on systems admin support, software development and maintenance. On development: Mark delivered to brief and on time. On maintenance, Mark can be relied upon to learn every line of code and so find and fix bugs effectively. On systems admin, Mark's response is immediate at all hours and all problems get diagnosed and sorted. I look forward to working again with Mark in the future.
Robert Kujawski | Less4Spares
We decided that we needed a bespoke system made just for us. n-Coders caught our attention with very good pricing and that they are based in Cornwall! From the very beginning nothing was too much for them; they were very helpful working with our every idea and finally developing it into the system, which should revolutionise our work and help to avoid stock problems in the future. I am sure that n-Coders might help a lot of companies with different system requirements and that money invested in their software will bring benefits very fast. The only thing I regret is that I did not find them earlier!
Tim Bowerbank | Roy Productions
n-Coders supported Roy Productions with the transfer of four websites from a non-performing server to a new Linux server. n-Coders made the transfer smoothly, debugging any issues along the way and ensuring the switch occurred when traffic was at its lightest. A series of recommendations were made and implemented in order to boost server performance, secure the websites from attack and ensure all data could be re-instated if the worst did happen. A very big thank you from Roy Productions to n-Coders – you made a complicated task look easy!
Ashley Conlan | Emote Robotics
I have found working with Mark exemplary and have no hesitation recommending his services. It's extremely rare to find someone who is a technical professional and speaks plain English! and most importantly is a real human being you can talk with. He has made himself available all hours to suit our transatlantic business, even weekends. I have also found Mark to be extremely reliable and understanding to our start up needs. I predict big things for n-Coders.
