We <3 Ideas
Do you have an idea for a killer app, maybe some custom software, gadget or website that will make you stand out from your competitors? We'd love to hear about it and see if Wordcraft could help fuel the creative spark that turns your idea into reality.
The Power of Bespoke
The way you work is unique. The way your business runs is unique. So why isn't your software? Instead of always adapting your business processes, why not just adapt your software? With a bespoke solution from Wordcraft you'll have complete control.
We can create a complete solution for you, including a customer-centric website, administration tools to manage your business processes, integration to existing desktop applications, new mobile apps and even new gadgets.
We pride ourselves on the fact we understand every line of our code because we wrote every line of our code. No outsourcing or over reliance on third party software means you get straight through to the people who make things happen.
People come first. You, your customers, your staff - people should drive technology and not the other way around. At Wordcraft we know that tailoring hardware and software to the unique needs of your users is essential to long term success.
Wordcraft believe communication is key - so you can talk directly to the programmers throughout the development and testing process and ensure the system meets your expectations. Any problems post-launch? We're just a phone call away.
