What We Do

We design & build business software.

4mation have been designing & building business software since 2001 for a variety of companies. From very large blue-chip companies whose turnover is in the £billions, to small start up companies who may just need a basic website to provide them with that all-important "web presence".

We have the expertise to provide a bespoke solution to help improve your business. We will work with you in order to deliver a solution which not only meets your current needs but will be designed to be used for many years – giving you complete peace of mind.

We are happy to discuss your requirements, without any obligation and give you honest & professional advice on the best way forward.

Don’t just take our word for it - please see what our clients have said about us & look at the some of the previous projects we have undertaken!

Please take a look here to see in detail how we would take your requirements and produce software that will make a real difference to your business.

Windows Based Software Development

These are business applications which can be run on Windows PC’s. These typically can be for a single user or for multiple users throughout your company’s network. Currently we use Microsoft .NET as the development platform and use MS SQL Server to store the information in a database. However we have developed a large number of systems using Visual Foxpro and have considerable expertise in this.

Migrating Existing Systems and Databases

You may be using Excel spreadsheets to store and manipulate your business data or you may already have an existing system which written using for example MS Access or FileMaker and are now having problems using it.

However what may have worked well with a small amount of data may be creaking at the seams now!

We can provide a solution to redesign & convert these systems to use more powerful & flexible technology which will not only handle your current needs but will cater for future requirements as well.

This would also provide a good opportunity to incorporate new features and business processes and remove any features that are no longer required.

What’s a Web App?

A web app is any business system where the data entry forms are accessed via a web browser. Where there is a need for multiple offices or sites to have access to the same data then a web application will provide a more flexible solution than a Windows based system.

Whether you want a simple online system or a complex database solution we have the expertise to deliver a solution using the latest Microsoft web technologies.


  • Time Sheets & Staff Management – staff at various branches or stores could log in and update their times, holiday requests, staff questionaires etc.
  • Online Order Processing – allows you to create & track your customers orders from initial purchase right through to invoicing. Customers could login and be able to see all details relevant to them.

Not only would your staff have access to data they need but your customers could also log in and be able to view information that is relevant them.

Let’s face it, every business needs a website – gone are the days of wading through a big yellow book - the internet is the first place people look.

We can help you - whether you want a simple “brochure site” to show people what services you offer to a full blown content management system (CMS).

Please take a look at our price list to get an indication of just how competitive we are for developing websites.
