“Our old system was off the shelf… we found there were all sorts of things in there we had no interest in. With the Decent solution, we’ve got exactly what we want in a system – nothing more, nothing less.”

David Yearley

Managing Director / Head of Play Safety, Rospa Playsafety

When no existing software fits your needs

Maybe you’ve been struggling with software that isn’t right. Or your old ways of working have started to hold you back as you’ve grown. You may have looked for an off the shelf solution but are unable to find one that fits your needs perfectly.

So can bespoke software help? In many situations, yes. A system crafted to suit your exact processes will not only make you work more effectively, it can be a game changer. It solves key problems that are a continual drag on your bottom line – from improving stock control and order processing to raising standards of customer service and giving you oversight of your entire business. And it will give you whole new capabilities so you can offer new or better services.

Your investment in a high quality system will certainly be returned many times over, but that’s just the start.

Why we’re your perfect partner

At Decent we can respond to all sorts of business needs, aspirations and processes. With a proven understanding of multiple sectors, we often bring learnings from one sector into another – something a sector specialist simply can’t do. And we have a huge number of happy clients across the UK and beyond.

Our development platform of choice is FileMaker, which is well-established and backed by Apple. We use its power to craft beautiful systems which deliver highly effective, reliable, transformative results.

How we work with you 

Discovery

We start by digging deep into how your business works, your aspirations, and what you want to achieve. This thorough understanding is a critical first step – the secret to transforming your business.

Design 

We gain a detailed understanding of the business processes that the software needs to support, and look for ways to streamline and improve them. Only once we understand these do we go on to design your new system. 

Build

Our UK-based software developers build your system, testing it carefully to ensure it meets your business needs – while keeping ease of use uppermost in mind. We often create and launch one module at a time, so you see results as soon as possible.

Release

We install the new system and ensure implementation goes as smoothly as possible. This process is handled with great care to minimise disruption.

How we approach your challenges

We take a unique partnership approach to building a system for our clients. We will spend time gaining a deep understanding of your business processes and needs before going any further. This is why we don’t just create what we think you need, and we don’t just create what you think you need either – we aim for the best solution possible.

Put simply, here’s how we approach any business problem:

  1. What is the business strategy?
  2. What are the operational requirements needed to meet the strategy?
  3. What are the processes needed to deliver those operational requirements?
  4. What are the systems needed to make those processes happen?

We only recommend what is necessary. If you have some software that works really well we will recommend you keep it – and we can connect that software to your wider business processes, transforming how you work.

Your system will work on any device that your teams use, across desktop, mobile and the web. And it will be easy to use, deliberately designed to integrate seamlessly with your workflows.

We will introduce a new system in stages to minimise disruption, and always prioritise the areas that have the greatest positive impact. We can agree success criteria in advance – both tangible KPIs and also intangible ones such as staff morale – and ensure they get delivered.
