Bespoke business software for your business
Chalestra specialises in the development of bespoke business software systems. We are an independent software development company offering high quality business software, a software development consultancy and bespoke software products.
Chalestra offers a variety of solutions to companies of all shapes and sizes. The mainstream offering is development of business management solutions and related software. The range of software that we’ve developed is vast and covers all areas of business.
Why develop your systems?
There is no doubt that technology is a major force in driving businesses.
Consider this: take away all your computers, then review how your business would
change. This is the measure it has changed since computers were bought on
Project into the future, and consider, if the computers were properly harnessed
and equipped, how powerful your business could be, and what it could achieve.
Don’t forget what your computers do, or the areas in which they work. They
manage everything from customer relations, internal business management, you
web presence, contacts with the outside world, etc., etc.
Our argument isn’t so much that they can do more: that is in no doubt. Our
argument is that they could do it so much better.
Why is bespoke software so important?
Every company is different. Every pitch is different. Every customer is
different. The relationships between companies and customers are very personal,
and every relationship is different.
If so, then how can off-the shelf software suit every business?
Chalestra specialises in making software that suits your business. It fits your
business perfectly. As a tailor makes a suit for you, so we’ll make software
for you. It’s that simple.
What can bespoke software do for you?
Every company is different. Companies have their own set of objectives and
ambitions. Bespoke business software allows you to gain a system that works for you in
exactly the way you need it to. Instead of your business being built around
software, software will be built in to your business.
Do we always start from scratch?
Not necessarily. We may already have similar systems that you can start from,
for a reasonable fee.
We want to offer you a reliable, targeted, benefits driven system. We want you
to be happy. We will offer you our time and expertise in bringing your project
to life. We’ll challenge you, no doubt, but we’ll do everything we can to
ensure you get the system that helps your business achieve its goals, and at a
So, what kind of systems do we make?
The range of systems we offer are virtually limitless. But it’s the wrong
question. The right question is ‘what do you need for your business to be able
to offer more’.
However, some ideas would include…
Information management systems:
the reality of businesses is that they don’t know much about their own
business. These are systems that extract information about your business, and
turn the information into something that makes sense: you will really know
everything there is to know about your business. It’s like turning a sailing
dinghy into a racing dinghy, and it helps you properly target your business to
Information acquisition systems:
these are small outposts placed where your customers and potential customers
hang out, and asks them for information on their requirements. The systems
usually take the form of pods or touch-screen monitors, and ask customers about
their requirements. The results are fed back to your computers in real time,
and offer you the choice of either preparing a product or service for your
customer, or simply gaining valuable information from the marketplace.
Dedicated security systems:
the problem with off-the-shelf security systems is that everyone knows about
them, and a lot know how they work. This makes them vulnerable. Our systems are
not known anywhere, and largely aren’t known to exist. In addition, we don’t
tell our customers how they work – remember that the weakest part of a castle
is the people that run it.
Business analysis software:
these are largely cut-down version of information management systems, but focus
on reporting on business activity and trends.
Project management software:
we’re often told how project management software simply does not work the way
people work. Understandable, as everyone is different. We will be happy to get
involved with end users to find out how they want to work, and we’ll be happy
to consult with them when the job is done to ensure the software helps them
achieve. And we’ll still be around if you want to take the software to the next
Asset Management software:
Developing asset management software is another division we’ve been asked to
approach on a number of occasions. Asset management is really about getting the
most out of existing assets instead of duplicating, or, worse, not using them
A very popular service is in developing contact management and marketing
management software. The two go hand in hand. The reason it’s so popular is
because it’s so vital to businesses and, because everyone develops their
networks differently, really needs to be tailored to your business.
Process management systems: These process-streamlining tools are very
important tools to have. They are usually involved in driving efficiency and
cost reduction, and can be found in workflow management, logistics execution,
mass production runs, ad others.
