Starting Out

We launched our new business via LinkedIn on September 1st.

The likes, comments and messages of goodwill were fantastic and we are very grateful for all of them.

These two posts from our CEO, Simon Hill and COO, Mark Garnish explain why Xperate was created.

Simon Hill said

After 30 odd years of creating and leading high growth Tech businesses, I’m delighted to say that we have just launched our new business Xperate. It also really won’t come as any surprise to know that Mark Garnish and I will be working together again.

What’s Xperate about? Well as a Tech CEO, having gone through the process of offshoring development and operating a hybrid team onshore as well, we felt there was significant demand from Tech businesses whereby in principle the CEO and CTO would like to offshore (and the FD and investors would definitely like to!!) but it just seems like a whirlpool of challenges in understanding the risks, what would actually be delivered and at what cost!

Xperate looks to solve that issue for high growth Tech SME’s and with our UK based Project Management and leadership, working with CEO’s, CTO’s and FD’s, we bring significant experience, transparency and thought leadership to the sector. Having successfully led businesses in the in the Legal Tech space, developing software for many of the largest law firms in the world for example, we also understand just how critical confidentiality is and of course we’re not developing any software for ourselves.

We’ve been overwhelmed with messages of support and interest today, so I really look forward to catching up with everyone over the coming months and working with you to help you with your offshoring strategy.

Mark Garnish said

After over 30 years or so in the tech industry, I have had a bit of time off recently (my garden looks lovely) but it is time to be getting back into the world of work.

It will come as no surprise to anyone who knows me that I am going to be working with Simon Hill again and over the last few weeks it has been great getting back on the horse and doing all the things you need to do for a new business. There has been so much to do and I have loved (nearly) every minute of it.

Starting again means you can ensure you can build on the past and are not tied down to any legacy systems or traditions. “We have always done it this way” just doesn’t exist for us. This is really refreshing.

So what are we doing?

Xperate has been created to do one thing and that is to offer a full software development service, primarily aimed at those organisations who are unable or unwilling to do this themselves but still need to get software and systems developed to maintain their competitive advantage. The idea started when, in my previous role, a number of customers would ask us to develop this or that and unless their request was specifically tied to one of our products we had to nearly always refuse.

Essentially if you want something developed from a small program to a fully featured application Xperate can help. We know that really large enterprises have plenty of development capacity scattered all over the world to work on their projects but that isn’t a luxury available to SMEs. Xperate can provide that.

We can work in one of two ways.

For those organisations that want their own development team(s) available fulltime we can provide a team with UK based project management dedicated just to you. Anything from 1 person to 20 or more and we can then work with you to understand the work you need doing and the likely size of the team you might need. Your costs will be fixed over the long term for the resources you need so your budgeting is taken care of. In most cases using Xperate will cost less than employing your own resources.

If all you need is a project to develop something specific that might take anything from a couple of weeks to a few months or longer we will provide a dedicated team for the duration of that project. We will work with you to understand your requirements in detail, design and then develop the system with you for a fixed price including all project management. There is no commitment after the final project is delivered although you may want us to continue to look after it in the future or we can hand it all over to your teams.

Please get in touch if you would like to know more and please follow us on LinkedIn, Twitter and on our Website to keep in touch with what we are up to.
