With offices in central London, Box UK specialises in the design, development and delivery of high-profile bespoke software development projects for clients operating at a regional, national and international level.
Since setting up its first London office more than twenty years ago, Box UK’s multidisciplinary team has partnered with public-sector bodies, educational institutions and leaders from industries including finance, health, defence and manufacturing.
The bespoke web and software projects delivered have pushed the boundaries of creativity and innovation, and driven impressive results spanning efficiency gains, audience growth, increased engagement, and revenue generation.
Acting as strategic partners to a roster of enterprise clients, we service organisations right across the UK – in major cities including:
Developing a custom software solution provides the ultimate in flexibility, allowing you to build something that fully meets your needs and avoid investing in features or functionality you don’t need. You also have full control over your future development roadmap, so that your bespoke software can adapt and evolve as you need it to.
Bespoke software engineering also helps safeguard the performance and security of your systems, providing you with direct access to technical and domain expertise and the highest levels of support. This is particularly important if your software underpins core business processes, is a direct source of revenue generation for your business, or handles high levels of traffic or transactions, when the confidence provided through working with an enterprise software development company is crucial.
London businesses can also unlock innovation with bespoke software development services, creating products or services to meet changing customer needs and expand into new markets. Here, your custom software can help you achieve valuable first-mover status, and deliver strategic advantages to put you ahead of your competition.
As a custom software development company with more than two decades’ experience designing and building high-quality digital solutions, Box UK offers a range of bespoke development services to support your strategic aims. Our development team has a proven track record of delivering exceptional web applications, software systems, mobile experiences and enterprise Content Management System (CMS) implementations, working closely with expert business analysts and solution architects to create something that’s tailored just for you.
Additionally, a focus on heavy-use, multi-user ecommerce platforms has given us deep experience in creating scalable, resilient and high-transaction systems for clients across the globe – specialising in complex multilingual and multisite installations, along with integrations to create a holistic ecommerce ecosystem and support the end-to-end purchase lifecycle.
We’re also experienced in installing embedded software teams within organisations, to support with mission-critical projects, provide access to specific skills and specialisms, and increase development velocity and volume. Our embedded software engineering services flex to suit your specific needs, from full-lifecycle augmented teams to project governance and delivery support, as well as targeted specialisms including strategy and planning, software testing, and user experience and design.
Our process is geared towards maximising productivity and eliminating waste, so you get your software delivered faster without compromising on quality.
A QuickStart phase gets things off to a flying start, ensuring that critical project questions are addressed at the earliest possible stage. This time is also used to put the pieces in place for development to begin without delay, with technical and user experience consultants working in parallel to make the best use of the time available.
This momentum is continued right through development, and with a rapid deployment process you’ll be able to see working software before you know it.
The user experience is at the heart of everything we do, and our user-centred design process puts the emphasis on insight right from the start. User stories written in simple, succinct language capture the outputs of our research in a format that can be understood by everyone involved on the project and, importantly, are told from the perspective of the user.
We’ll regularly ask for feedback during the development process, whether it’s finding out what representative users think of initial designs, or getting stakeholders to test out elements of working software. This helps ensure your project remains on track, and avoids any nasty surprises surfacing down the road.
We don’t use Agile because it’s a hot industry buzzword, or to check a box on a form. We believe fully in the values Agile promotes:
In the fast-moving digital world the ability to respond to changing conditions and requirements is critical. Agile’s focus on regular deliveries of working software means that you’ll have visibility of progress at every stage, and can change the direction of development if required. You can also launch at virtually any point, avoiding the risk of products never seeing the light of day and your investment being wasted.
Digital is no longer just a tactical tool – it’s embedded into organisations at a strategic level. That’s why we care so much about building client relationships that last. We’ll get under the skin of your organisation. We’ll learn about the specifics of your industry. We’ll act as an extension of your own team to the point where we’re able to provide expert technical advice tailored to provide real value.
This learning process doesn’t have to be one-way though. We also equip your team with the knowledge and skills they need to maintain and enhance your digital strategy through dedicated training sessions, workshops and coaching.
