Bill in a few words

I am a software solutions developer with over 20 years experience developing bespoke applications in a wide range of industries including goverment contracts with the NHS and defence, global finance consultancies and the real estate/ property development world.

My focus is always on ensuring everything I do brings benefit to the client. Process refinement is at the forefront of everything I do.

I am able to quickly analyse and undertstand requirements, translating them into readable specifications from which agreed solutions are created.

Designing and developing IT solutions is a journey for both the consultant and the client, I like to believe that I can take the client along a pathway that allows them to grow their business, improve staff rentention and facilitate change to bring the results they desire.
