This is a list of the projects on which I have worked. I've listed the client organisation, a brief description of the organisation and of the application. If you would like more information, please give me a call on or 07887 772743.

Mutual Advantage had taken over an email and auto responder. I developed new modules, APIs and licensing controls for this.

I joined the team to implement the application in a large legal firm. Later I developed a major new module.
It had been intended that I should take over from a retiring director but I helped negotiate a merger with a larger company.
