We have a strong track record of delivering high quality software on time and within budget across a wide range of industries.
When we build systems we strive for ease of use, robustness and maintainability, allowing for the application to evolve with our client's business. Most importantly, we provide a quality service, with quality people, bring a deep level of intellectual property and experience to our projects, and take pride in the fact that we very seldom miss a deadline. We utilize industry best practices in project management, analysis, development, deployment and support to ensure world-class solutions.
Furthermore, to ensure a high level of technical competency, every one of our engineers holds a bachelor’s degree or higher in computer science or engineering, and are put through a number of ongoing training and professional development programmes at Entelect. Our agile approach and knowledge transfer structures guarantee forward thinking solutions that scale with your business.

Our primary area of specialisation is in the development of enterprise-scale systems and applications on both the Microsoft and JAVA/Oracle technology stacks, however we are technology agnostic and work in whatever environment our client’s businesses are constrained to.
Our engagements are tailored to our client’s specific needs with the flexibility of co-sourcing and outsourcing models or combinations thereof:
Co-sourcing: Involves augmenting our software engineers and analysts with existing development teams. In order to guarantee results, our preferred mode of operation is for our team and technical leads to take ownership of project delivery. Our team based approach ensures all resources are managed from a performance and technical perspective.
Outsourcing: Involves our in-house teams taking full ownership of projects with end-to-end lifecycle management including analysis, development, testing, hosting and maintenance. The benefit of an outsourced engagement is our teams have deep “on the ground” management support and direct access to best of breed technologies, processes and methodologies.
