Software Development

Creating the links in the chain that ensure your data flows smoothly

Data is required before any work can be printed or enclosed but once data is obtained it may be many steps away from being usable. Data may need reprocessing, converting to a different file format or document structure, or adjusting in some way. Logo's may need to be added or removed, additional messages may need placing on documents or control marks, such as OMR, may need inserting.

This is assuming that all the data is correct initially - often data may have a fault which cannot be corrected in time to meet SLA's. Then there are the savings that can be obtained if data is mailsorted, cleansed, or otherwise optimised.

In order to achieve all of this CMCS has its own in-house development team and a suite of custom software which allows us to make sure your data will reach its intended target. We can manipulate data as required by customers and will create bespoke software as required.

We also provide document composition functionality, again using our own in-house software, so we can help our customers produce documents from raw data. And if customers have any integration requirements with existing applications we will create the links in the chain that ensure your data flows smoothly between systems.

Development Tools

All of our development work is powered by the Microsoft .Net Framework, Microsoft Visual Studio and Microsoft SQL Server and we use the latest tools and coding practices to ensure all our work is robust and maintainable. Everything we produce is developed in-house, ensuring we know your solutions inside-out, having personally built them from the ground up

Microsoft .Net Framework

The .NET Framework is Microsoft's platform for building applications that have visually stunning user experiences, seamless and secure communication, and the ability to model a range of business processes. By providing you with a comprehensive and consistent programming model and a common set of APIs, the .NET Framework helps you to build applications that work the way you want, in the programming language you prefer, across software, services, and devices.

Microsoft Visual Studio

Software developers need a solid environment to work in that will help bring their applications to life. And collaboration is more important than ever before, as today’s development projects expand in complexity and scope.

The Visual Studio development system is a comprehensive suite of tools designed to help software developers create innovative, next-gen applications.

Microsoft SQL Server

SQL Server delivers on Microsoft’s Data Platform vision by helping your organization manage any data, any place, any time. Store data from structured, semi-structured, and unstructured documents, such as images and rich media, directly within the database. SQL Server delivers a rich set of integrated services that enable you to do more with your data such as query, search, synchronize, report, and analyze.

SQL Server provides the highest levels of security, reliability, and scalability for your business-critical applications. To take advantage of new opportunities in today's fast-moving business world, companies need the ability to create and deploy data-driven solutions quickly. SQL Server reduces time and cost of management and development of applications.
