Is it right for you?

Off the shelf versus bespoke. An introduction to bespoke software development if you are considering  a software solution for your business. The good, the bad and hopefully not too ugly.


Off the shelf or bespoke. Whichever you choose it needs rolling out to the business. Our software implementation service will take care of both the technical and the human side of that for you.

Choosing a new provider

A helpful account of things to look for and consider when choosing or moving to a new software development company. Of course we hope you will choose Alinea!

The difference between bespoke software and tailored explained

Tailored software

Many of our bespoke solutions are actually tailored software. We adapt, extend and configure existing software (ours and third party) to fit your unique requirements yet without the expense of ground up building bespoke projects.

Introduction to bespoke software

Bespoke software

From little acorns …  a bespoke software development does not have to be a mammoth project. It can be as small as a piece of custom code to work between two existing applications, then grow organically to a global solution.

A safe pair of hands
