Meeting the Practical Needs of Business.

    As a new field, the requirements and application of industry software is only partially recognised in business. This is because while some software is useful, or efficient, it is often not well suited to the relevant tasks. Other software is over developed and needlessly complicated, but has significant potential in reducing costs or mitigating business liability. Additionally, as software companies mature they may move in their own direction and no longer support their original users.

    These areas are the most troubling for any business looking to integrate new software into their business. As a provider of operational software, we take these concerns seriously and focus our time and energy on ensuring we provide:

    • Strong solutions. Tools to optimise a common process or set of processes.
    • Simple setup. Modular configuration for ease of use.
    • Dedicated. Our software remains focused on its intended application.

    The power of KJL Software
    Over the past 19 years, Kevin James Limited (KJL) have been dedicated to the development of core applications for business.

    These solutions have been deployed in a variety of different markets including the UK motor trade, aviation sector and more recently throughout the construction industry. Through research and development, we have gained key insight into the challenges faced by companies in these areas. From accounting practices and stock management through to data mining and integration solutions, we offer software which is specifically designed to ease the pains associated with monotonous or complex tasks.

    Our Approach
    Our success to date has primarily been down to a highly focused approach to research, planning, design and awareness of product functionality. We not only register the concerns of our customers through feedback, but identify how negative aspects of the working day impact their efficiency in the workplace.

    Once a software developer understands the actual issue rather than just the complaint, the task of solving the problem in the long term can begin. Our customers value our collaborative, and iterative approach during this period. We work closely with all stakeholders, and ensure buy-in from all staff who will use the solution.

    This process ensures that when an application goes live, it fits our client’s requirements. In addition to promoting much faster solution integration or uptake, this method saves time and increased cost by avoiding development / concept changes.

    We only use trained development analysts. This means that all solutions are based on real requirements. This same person will be responsible for development, initial testing, rollout and training.

    Once a project has been signed off by the client, our professional and highly knowledgeable support staff take over. Whether you require a small, two-user database or a large multi-site corporate solution, we can provide a strong working solution, at the right price, supported by a team that knows the software well.

    Our Pricing Structure
    One of the most important factors when considering software is cost. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most difficult factors to pin down.

    The cost of software depends on three key factors:

    • The Solution – The requirements for the solution, including hosting costs, user licences and SLA (Service Level Agreement)
    • Development – Work associated with specific business modules, updates to existing modules and integration or UI factors.
    • Support –  Work following implementation (recurring revenue) including purchasing of new licences, building of roadmap, updates to infrastructure.
