Evolve

We start all projects by working closely with our customers to understand all aspects of their requirements. We then build a detailed project plan containing all the information about the proposed solution and details of the project approach. From here we move on to the design and build of the solution.

Once that has been signed off, we go through full testing procedures before working with our customers to launch the solution. We offer ongoing support and maintenance to ensure continued satisfaction.

Finally, we remain on hand to help with the evolution of the solution over time. If your requirements change and the tool has to be altered to meet your needs, or if new features need to be added, KLOC will be there to assist.

We involve you in all phases of the project and sign off each stage to make sure that you are completely happy with the final outcome.

KLOC is a software development company with a friendly team of developers, project managers, consultants and quality engineers. We enjoy learning about each new customer’s business and we relish the opportunity to bring our technical capabilities to bear in formulating the very best solution possible for each project.   We recognise that building bespoke solutions requires a close working relationship with our customers at all organisational levels and it is typical that our customers come to see KLOC as a vital part of their own teams.

We were introduced to KLOC through our IT team and we are very happy with the service we received throughout the development stages. Jim and his team were extremely helpful throughout the whole process. The service was very professional and the end product tailored to our very specific requirements. I would recommend KLOC and we will most certainly be calling on their services again in the future
