Benefits of bespoke software development

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.

Here, your custom software can help you achieve valuable first-mover status, and deliver strategic advantages to put you ahead of your competition.

Our work


Quality-of-life service provider Sodexo asked Box UK to take on management of their Employee Benefits product, following a code review which revealed that, in its existing state, the platform would not be able to deliver the levels of stability and security needed to effectively serve their customers.

Having first stabilised the platform, Box UK’s development team worked on building new features that will ultimately help Sodexo realise their aim of ‘leapfrogging’ the competition – taking an Agile approach to rapidly and regularly deliver value.


Running seven country sites in six languages from a single installation, OKdo.com is a feature-rich, widely-integrated technology ecosystem that serves as a flagship example of enterprise WordPress and WooCommerce development.

Across the globe, over 100,000 medical professionals rely on the information delivered through the BMJ’s Best Practice mobile app to inform their clinical decision-making.

Keeping speed and accessibility front-of-mind, we rebuilt both iOS and Android versions of the app from the ground up – reducing the time required to download it and its contents by 70% and reducing storage by 60%, as well as making the experience of finding relevant information intuitive, fluid and, crucially, fast.
