LabVIEW Consultancy

Software systems are complex, and custom solutions even more so as they are unique.

LabVIEW is a programming language designed to reduce the complexities of writing software. It allows scientists and engineers to focus solely on the complexity of the problem at hand.

Why Hire A Consultant?

Save Training

LabVIEW development for professional applications requires training and experience, and the skills needed to manage and structure large projects can take years to develop.

Save Time

Experienced developers can work much faster than training someone new. Even without training some estimates claim great developers can be 10x more efficient than novices.

Improve Results

With experience comes lessons-learnt and existing knowledge which can produce applications which are more reliable, easier to use and can improve your engineers efficiency.

Our expertise will reduce your risk

We’ll develop custom software for you that works the way you want, and gives you the most productive solution for your situation.

We pride ourselves on being so much more than competent programmers. We don’t just take a specification and turn it into software – we appreciate the bigger picture, taking into account your aims for the whole project and its associated challenges. Most importantly, we’re able to adapt accordingly to whatever we’re working on.

We will work with you to truly understand:

  • The nature of the problem you need to solve;
  • How to give you the best possible outcome in terms of efficacy and cost.
  • Use our experience to offer new ideas and suggest areas where value can be added.
  • Be flexible to the changing needs, priorities and timescales of the project.
  • Involve you and your colleagues as much or as little as desired, depending on whether you plan to manage the system going forward or are just looking for a turnkey solution.

 

Why Wiresmith Technology?

Wiresmith Technology is a small consultancy run by James McNally. We focus on three key areas to ensure an excellent service for all customers:

  • check
    Technical Excellence: We don't like to settle for competent.  We invest in training ourselves on the latest and greatest technologies and can pick up new concepts and ideas very quickly. This gets you a more reliable solution in less time.
  • check
    Great Communication: We consistently get great feedback for our communication. We aim to make sure you always know what we have done, what is happening next and why.
  • check
    Systematic and Organised Delivery: Just because we are small doesn't mean we fly by the seat of our pants. We use and improve systems throughout our business to reduce delivery risk and make it easier to support you.

We needed to bring our durability test equipment up to date but were concerned about meeting all of the existing and new requirements.

 

Wiresmith Technology were able to produce a new application with a user interface that is easy to use which means our operators are quicker to setup the tests. James was friendly and willing to discuss all of the options with us to find the best way forward. We would happily recommend them for future work.

FAQ


Aren't Consultants expensive?

It depends on how satisfied you are with the outcome! The initial figures can appear a little daunting so it’s good to know that there are a number of independent expenses that you don’t have to pay when you engage a Consultant:

Training course costs;
Software licence costs;
Costs for additional employee time whilst attending external training and/or investment in self-taught programming.
Typically, we’ll be able to fast-track you to a more valuable solution, more reliably and quicker than a less experienced developer.


But what if I want to extend the system in the future?

We always provide you with full source code to the solution and permissive licences to any Wiresmith Technology components used. This means that you are free to continue the work in-house or with another firm in the future.

Of course, we hope that you would come back to us for additional work once an initial project is complete – as many other customers regularly do. Because we give you the source code, you can be sure that this will be competitively priced.


What if you’re not familiar with our domain?

We consider ourselves Systems Engineers.

With a comprehensive background in engineering, we’re yet to encounter a domain for which we’ve not been able to resolve any issues – and moreover, then go on to suggest further improvements.

We’re always mindful of your insight and expertise which is why we constantly liaise with you and perform regular demos and testing to make sure we’re on track.


How will I know if you’re any good?!

Requesting external support can be unsettling, particularly when you don’t have expertise in that specific area. We can relate to that as we’ve used external contractors ourselves to support us on languages that we’re less familiar with.

Programming capability is especially hard to capture objectively or through an absolute value, so we would invite you to:

Review our credentials in About Us.
Read our testimonials.
Approach National Instruments and ask them about us. Because of our working relationship with NI, it’s highly likely that your local field engineer will know of us and the quality of our work – and be happy to give you their independent opinion.
