Software Failure

Software projects fail for many different reasons, but the results often have an operational and financial impact that can damage your business. It could be that your project has gone over time and over budget, or it may simply not be fit for purpose. We’ve helped businesses large and small who have had problems such as:

  • Users not being able to engage or derive value from their experience
  • Project standstill due to commercial disagreement or legal dispute
  • Knowledge void: the people who led your project have gone and nobody knows how to finish it properly

Whatever the causes, Helastel can put your software project back on track. The first step is stabilisation, where our experienced project rescue team will trace and identify your digital assets. With your project stabilised, the next stage is finishing the job to our usual stellar standards and providing you with a roadmap for future software enhancements and ongoing support.

It can be daunting to face up to the need for a software project rescue, but Helstel can help get back on track and achieve your objectives.

By the time we meet you’ll probably already have a vision for your business and we’ll help translate that into the right digital strategy, whether that’s custom software or a configuration of Intelastel. We’ll work with you to define the problem, refine the vision and work out a roadmap for how to get there. Along the way we’ll agree the stops on the road that deliver value in line with your budgetary and business needs.

We are used to business-critical software development and taking on the demanding projects that others don’t. Our unique blend of experience means that we have both the technical competency and project skills to release you from the depths of failed software projects.

"Good software is essential,” “Previously we had a piece of software that was continually letting us down and that was a major factor in us deciding to change it."
