Software Design UK was founded in 1997, which makes it one of the UK's most established internet programming companies.

One of the first internet based (cloud) systems we wrote was in 1998. It was a fully automated ebooks system, allowing authors to publish their own works and the public to browse, download and buy ebooks. Once written, it required no human intervention until we took down the system in 2003.

We have written bespoke systems for a vast range of businesses, from sole traders to multi-national enterprises. In the process, we have developed a number of standard systems which many of our clients have found invaluable, such as online registration/contact databases and web building facilities.

Our founders have a wide range of IT skills and experience.
