Our team members have worked in large corporate or government bodies so we understand the demands of corporate clients. The pressures that drive projects, the compliance requirements and reporting requirements are all familiar.
We produce great systems using leading-edge technology, but unlike some of our contemporaries, quality is not sacrificed in the “excitement of the new”. Solutions are built with enterprise-grade software architecture, tools and techniques and hardened using code reviews, modern cryptography and multiple layers of defence.
Extend your internal systems to clients, partners and providers
Many web agencies just walk away from complex integrations with existing systems, but that’s where the valuable corporate data is.
Our speciality is integrating web portals and external data feeds into your existing applications.
Never send a person to do a machine’s job
Our workflow system is a proven reliable, scaleable and flexible platform for building mission-critical applications.
Clients are often amazed at the extent to which we can not only computerise process, but actually replace manual steps with software.
Improved quality, consistency and speed of processing are all worthwhile benefits. Accruing on-going savings through staff reduction or redeployment makes for a rapid ROI and thus a compelling business case.
Reach your customers the way they want
Use our secure portal technology to send messages, documents and web forms to external users. All items are tracked with audit logging.
Simple web forms allow complex transactional data to be gathered, validated and returned back into the heart of your corporate systems.
Sometimes bespoke really is the best answer
The main drivers behind bespoke software development are that your business is in a new market, or you can gain competitive advantage by being an early adopter of a technology in your sector.
Whether it’s web, intranet, database or communications, ACS Solutions has the experience across the whole project life cycle to ensure delivery of a quality solution in a timely fashion.
To date, most of our work has been in the legal sector. We enjoy working with solicitors because they have a command of English, a precision of thought and an attention to detail which mirror our own.
For those working in bulk worktypes such as conveyancing and debt, our automation solutions have enabled a transformation in process efficiency and our web portals have been praised by both clients and internal users.

Whether it’s a hardware upgrade, OS upgrade, or cloud migration, our experience as corporate windows systems administrators means we understand your need to progress while providing as much mitigation of risk as possible. Right-sized project management matches the task ahead, but we always consider:
The one truism of this kind of work is that it’s going to be harder than you think. Where we excel is that all of our staff have software development experience, so we understand all the moving parts of complex line-of-business applications:
databases, SQL, middle-tier components, web front-ends, clusters, SANs, integrated security, SPNs, ODBC, OLEDB, DNS, COM+ applications, IIS, DCOM permissions, .NET, web.config, SharePoint
We can provide a package appropriate to your business to cover any of
Many small and medium-sized organisations have aging Windows servers, often from the Small Business Server line, and have issues with performance, reliability, spam and so on. We’ll take you down our standard migration path to Office 365, Azure and AWS. As the cloud platforms mature in capability there are ever fewer reasons to keep any on-premises servers at all. In the process we’ll strengthen your network to provide the security, reliability and performance and mobility you need in the new world of remote working.
Since Chris retired and Mike left for a non-IT career move, we are running light - it’s just Alasdair at the moment. There is still a wealth of experience here in designing, developing, delivering and maintaining software solutions for businesses, and we’re proud of what we create. As business has picked up since the pandemic we are now considering hiring…
