Meet the Team
Although Chris will admit to a distinctly geeky side, his passion for software comes not only from a fondness for code, but much more from what computers and software can do for people.
Fiona brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, with an impressive track record in business development, and a love for visual media and digital platforms.
A software professional for 25 years, Chris has extensive technical expertise, and has worked around the world to help define and develop complex systems, including telephony and call management.
Design and User Experience
Shelley has a passion for understanding and improving the way people interact with our software; that and knitting. If she could knit a user interface, then she would have found her Nirvana!
Louise was previously Subtitling and Media Coordinator for some household names in broadcasting, so brings the kind of experience and organisational skills that can only be gained from managing resources for live-subtitled events!
For many years, Ric has played a critical role in every part of the software development lifecycle, from first contact with clients and users, through requirements-gathering and analysis, to system design, programming, testing, implementation and support.
Networking and Communications
Andy is the go-to expert for IT managers at many of the UK's leading charities, showing himself to be a powerful ally, particularly in mixed network and access environments. The kind of person you want on your side, never shying away from problems but never seeking praise for solving them!
Justin's background in software design and development makes him a great, if modest, all-rounder who is as happy with his head buried in back-end code as he is making designs come to life as user experience.
