Mentoring

developing your developers

TECHNICAL MENTORING

Do you run a non-technical company that has a small team of technical staff? Do you feel they are isolated or that you're not getting the most from them?

We can help you recruit, manage, review, develop, train, mentor and inspire your developers so they're happier, more effective and contribute more to your business.

We offer a range of services to provide the type of support and inspiration that would traditionally come from senior collegues.

  • Review existing workflows and procedures
  • Pre and post project reviews
  • Audit code and database quality
  • Manage recruitment or hiring of contractors
  • Provide training, ongoing support and mentoring
  • Choosing technologies
  • Software and database design
  • Distribution & architecture
  • Front-end & back-end web development
  • Version control and code hosting
  • Web and application hosting
  • Customer support
  • Communication between technical and non-technical stakeholders

TESTIMONIALS :

I didn't think we were doing things that wrong and wasn't sure how much difference an 'expert' would make.

However after just a couple of months of working with Severn Solutions we started to see things change for the better. We are much more confident dealing with the technical side of projects now, our development team is happy and productive and we can offer more to our customers.

Severn Solutions have made a real positive difference to our business.

-Steve Tipson, Auburn Creative

We were having problems with communication and project planning.

Initially I thought bringing in more technical people might make things worse, but Severn Solutions did a great job of bridging the gap between our technical and non technical staff.

They also helped review our projects before and after completion which meant we avoided lots of potential pitfalls.

-Dougie Nicol, Fita-Seal Ltd
