In the late 1990s a small printer in Northampton wanted to sell photo calendars online. At that time there was very little software on the market that was up to the task and so they decided to build their own. The software was noticed by other printers who wanted to do the same thing and so the development team was spun out to form Red Tie Group Ltd (our parent company) to be a software development company specialising in the development of web to print software for printers around the world. It is still a large part of our business today and if you want to find out more read our RedTie case study on our Case Study page.
As the company grew we saw that our customers needed not just our off the shelf software but also bespoke solutions to other software related issues they had. They knew the quality of our work and our first class customer service and would often ask us help out. All the work was coming from within our customer base but as our reputation for great software development grew we started to get requests by way of referral. From dealing primarily with print companies we were suddenly getting work from other industries.
In 2016 we knew that our over 15 years of experience in development and project management was in growing demand, especially our knowledge of taking software online. Right from the start our software was designed to be cloud based, even before the cloud was really a thing. Full Metal Software was formed to meet that demand.
Full Metal Software's mission is to make a difference to people and their businesses by providing all our customers with the best web applications and associated services to meet their business needs. We are a company for organisations to entrust their software development requirements to.
We are not just a great company, we are a company that does great things.
