  • BBD // Software Development Open or Close

    BBD has been at the forefront of providing custom software development and application design solutions for over 30 years. We’ve helped the likes of massive banks, government institutions, insurance companies and telecommunications firms get their mission-critical systems online... and we can do the same for you.

    We are committed to simplifying our clients’ lives, and enabling their businesses through technology.

    By using our extensive knowledge of legacy systems, and our enthusiasm for the latest and greatest technology*, we’ve cultivated an approach to integrated software implementations that we like to call ‘Combined Intelligence’.

    We want to help your company realise a new level of success, with digital tools that gives your teams the freedom to focus on what they’re really good at―you know, the stuff you hired them for. Not for their patience when it comes to dealing with a tempestuous database management system.

    We believe that software should make our lives and your jobs easier. And once you’ve taken a look at some of our solutions, we think you’ll agree that it can.

    *Seriously, don’t bring new gadgets into our building unless you’re okay with everyone else playing with them.

  • Software Solutions for Any Situation Open or Close

    Whether your business merely needs some new module added to your existing software architecture, an up-to-the-minute IT systems update, or a brand new, responsive application built from the ground up, we have the technical experience and the developer expertise to design custom software solutions for any situation.

    We work with you to define each system’s exact objectives, and provide you with ongoing, personal feedback about the development of your software solution- so you’ll be able to confidently report back to your team about your project’s positive progress.

    You’ll also get wicked code-cred, guaranteed.

  • Expert Software & IT System Consultation Open or Close

    Speak to us to set up a face-to-face software, IT system or application consultation to see where we can simplify your business, and improve your life.

    I like what I see...Now let’s see what BBD can do for ME.

Our Clients

Our clients are large, multi-national corporations; small, flexible enterprises; and everything in-between. Although we have years of experience working in most industry sectors, and can therefore understand and advise on most business processes, we are never afraid to learn something new and immerse ourselves in how your business does business.

Once we understand what your organisation needs, we’ll do whatever we can to make sure you get it― and more. We dream of a world where technology enables and empowers people to be their best selves and achieve their full potential.

Like, imagine if the Terminator travelled back in time to help John Connor pass his exams instead of to kill him. Then they could call that movie the ‘End-of-Term-inator’.... Get it?

You’ll be happy to know we’re better at coding than comedy.
