I build better processes, better software, better business

Business process improvement

I've worked with companies to improve their processes for a long time. I've found that better businesses are built on better processes. Better businesses are more attractive places to work, and earn higher profits. Call me to find out how.

Custom software development

Better processes are about new ideas. But those ideas need to be turned into action. Custom software development can help you do that by developing the best systems for your business. Contact me to discuss how.

Software integration

If your business has good software systems, but would like to link them in better ways, or link them to a new custom development, software integration is the best way to do that. Get in touch to find out how.

API development

If you'd like to link your software systems with those in other businesses, to make your own processes easier to operate, using modern Application Programming Interfaces is the way to go. Email me to find out how.

What people I've worked with have to say

  • Mike has a thorough analytical approach to the work he does. Reliable and calm - even under pressure of timed delivery. He has done a very good job for us.

    Michael Saunders, Managing Director - Bibendum PLB Group
  • Our company has benefited substantially from the cost reductions delivered by Quartile Software. They have also given us stronger processes and improved management of our supply chain.

    Russell Ward, Chief Operating Officer - Motherwell Bridge Limited
  • It was a genuine pleasure to work with Mike. He had a clear goal in mind and gave prompt answers and detailed feedback all along our mutual work and was always open for suggestions and ideas. I couldn’t have even wished for better cooperation and cannot wait for working with him again in the future.

    Juli Sudi, TACO Web & UX Design Studio, Vienna
  • I endorse Mike for Business analysis, Business consulting, Responsive design, Netsuite development, SQL Server, Database development and XML.
