Xor Software Ltd is primarily a software development company. We tackle problems like database design, Windows and Macintosh bespoke software and extensions to Microsoft Word and Excel. Our expertise in web development has proved useful because so many of our projects use HTML for the user interface, even on desktop applications.
We specialise in providing useful and exciting solutions to your problems. Many people never think to have software written to their needs, so sometimes our solution will surprise them. If you are running standard packages like Microsoft Office or Filemaker, these are all designed to be extended with custom screens and functionality. Databases are easy to construct based on freely available tools like MySQL and Apache, using a web browser as the screens for the users. We have produced a number of solutions for museums using this approach.
The following are examples chosen from the large number of projects we have completed, in specific areas where we have provided a solution tailored to a client's needs. Talking to us costs nothing, throwing ideas around is fun, and from it, we are confident, will come a solution for you.
