Some of the customers we’ve worked with

What they say

We have been working with Siftware for a number of years, ever since we identified the need for additional development support. The Siftware team has been consistently professional, and technically competent. Their first step was to complete a comprehensive website audit and risk report establishing the causes of our performance issues. Siftware also made our application fully portable to ensure efficient development and disaster recovery. Once the initial analysis had been done, performance issues and risks were identified and addressed, and we continued to rely on the expert advice and guidance of the PHP support team. The Siftware team have become an integral part of our technical development process and we value their expertise and extensive knowledge of PHP.

Siftware are an integral part of our ongoing application development processes and have been invaluable working with our in-house developers, testers, and product owners on updates and features for our back end systems as well as our customer-facing website. Siftware have been excellent at helping us with both quick-turn, ad-hoc projects and with year-round services. They have proven themselves time and again to be highly adaptable, professional and trustworthy partners, and we have found them to be efficient, responsive and knowledgeable in all aspects of delivery. We look forward to our continued partnership with the Siftware team as we continue to evolve our technology and product offering.

Alan Reitsch
Chief Technology Officer, Into Film

As an experienced developer I have been impressed with how Siftware have handled taking over the support of one of our web applications. The initial risk report was detailed and very useful. Furthermore the work done to make the application ‘portable’ – so any developer can work on it and we can now easily move it to any server – has been particularly valuable. Going forwards it is going to be much easier to maintain our code.

Gareth Jones
MD, Insite Energy

When our previous developer suddenly disappeared in 2017 Siftware came to our rescue and immediately undertook a comprehensive audit and risk report, identifying all our performance issues and highlighting potential security risks. They were extremely professional and thorough in their work, giving us peace of mind and reassurance that our web application was performing optimally and securely. We continued to rely on the expertise of the Siftware team both in terms of our ongoing development needs and also just as importantly, in a support function, right up until the business was sold towards the end of 2018. It was extremely comforting to know that when we encountered unexpected maintenance issues, Siftware were on call to help resolve any technical problems to ensure the ongoing effectiveness of our website
