Our Software Development Services

We specialize in solving complex business challenges with custom software development. With 25+ years in the development business, we’ve helped thousands of businesses utilize technology to grow their companies. 

Web Applications

Web applications are interactive programs that run on a web server and can be accessed through a web browser from any device connected to the internet. They can range from simple forms to complex, data-driven platforms. Collaborating with a software development company to build custom web applications can be highly beneficial for businesses. A custom web application can offer scalability and flexibility, enabling the business to adapt and evolve in response to market trends and customer demands.

System Integrations

Businesses often utilize a variety of different software and/or web applications, making it difficult for departments to access and utilize shared data. A custom software development company can seamlessly integrate various functions and data into a single solution. This interconnectedness will enhance efficiency across your organization.

Application Programming Interfaces (API)

One of the most common means of integrating data between software systems is through Application Programming Interfaces. APIs are sets of rules and coding protocols that allow different software applications to communicate with each other. They enable the sharing of data and functionality between systems, enhancing interoperability. An experienced software development company, like Atlantic BT, can help your business to utilize and integrate APIs offered by your existing software, or develop customizations if the API doesn’t already exist.


Custom developing software to automate business processes can be highly beneficial. It allows businesses to streamline their processes, reduce manual errors, and increase efficiency. Whether it’s data entry, report generation, or customer communication, automation can make these tasks faster and more accurate. It also means freeing up your employees to focus on more strategic activities, ultimately leading to improved productivity and profitability. As a leading software development company, we can help you discover which process will benefit the most from automation.

ERP Customization

As a business grows, it often encounters increasing operational complexities that surpass the capabilities of its existing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. To address these needs, customizations can be implemented within specific ERP modules. These tailored modifications cater to a variety of business functions – human resources, accounting, supply chain management, document management, sales and marketing, etc. This ensures that the ERP system remains a robust and effective tool that grows in tandem with the business. Moreover, custom-built ERP modules can be more adaptable to changes in business processes, providing a level of flexibility that off-the-shelf software often lacks.

Web Portals

As a software development company, we specialize in creating web-based applications known as portals. Web portals gather information from various sources into a single, easily accessible location. Our custom-built web portals simplify the process for your customers, employees, or any other users of your website to find the information they need. Web portals have a wide range of applications across various departments and industries. Examples include patient portals in healthcare, citizen portals for government agencies, intranets for exclusive employee access in enterprise businesses, vendor portals, and more.

Ecommerce Software

Ecommerce refers to an online system that allows businesses to sell products and services over the internet. They handle a wide range of business activities, from showcasing products to processing transactions. Off-the-shelf examples include WooCommerce, Adobe Commerce, and Shopify. For some businesses, these solutions will not work for their products or services and engaging with a software development company will be necessary for them to sell online. Take for example the ecommerce platform that Atlantic BT developed for GAMI, an aviation fuel injector manufacturer.


Dashboards are visual interfaces that present key business metrics and manage data in an easy-to-understand format. They provide a consolidated view of business performance, enabling quick access to important information and facilitating informed decision-making. Software companies typically provide access to common dashboard templates; however, unique business needs may require assistance from a software development company to build customized dashboards that align with their goals.

Artificial Intelligence

In the era of digital transformation, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has emerged as a game-changer. Custom software development companies like Atlantic BT are at the forefront of leveraging AI to help businesses unlock new potentials. AI can be integrated into your business operations to automate routine tasks. AI-powered chatbots can provide instant, personalized results to improve customer satisfaction and engagement. With machine learning algorithms, your systems can learn from data, identify patterns, and make decisions, enhancing efficiency and accuracy. AI can also be used in predictive analytics, helping you forecast market trends and make data-driven decisions. Moreover, AI can enhance your cybersecurity measures. It can detect anomalies and potential threats, providing an additional layer of protection for your business. Atlantic BT can help you navigate the AI landscape and implement solutions tailored to your business needs.

What is Custom Software Development?

Custom software development is a specialized process that involves designing, building, and maintaining software tailored to meet the specific needs of a user(s). Unlike commercial off-the-shelf software (COTS), which is designed for a broad audience with generalized needs, custom software is crafted to address unique challenges and requirements. This bespoke approach allows businesses to optimize their operations, enhance productivity, and drive growth in ways that generic software solutions cannot match. 

An application, in the realm of software development, is a program or group of programs designed for end-users to perform specific tasks. Software, on the other hand, is a more general term that refers to all the data, programs, and operations that a computer can execute, which includes applications. Therefore, when we talk about custom software development, we’re also referring to custom web applications designed to address unique challenges and requirements. 

Whether it’s a modification to existing software or a completely new application, custom software offers the flexibility and scalability that modern businesses need to thrive in today’s digital landscape. As such, it should only be undertaken with the guidance and planning from an experienced software development company. Architecture decisions, integration decisions, human-factors decisions, and security decisions are all critical to the success of your software. At Atlantic BT, we harness the power of 25+ years of experience in custom software development to help businesses unlock their full potential.

Our Software Development Expertise

As a full-service software development company, we understand that off-the-shelf software solutions often fall short in addressing the specific challenges faced by businesses. With our expertise and passion for technology, we provide software development services tailored to meet the unique needs of your business. Similarly, we can design and develop custom web applications to enhance your online presence.

Leveraging the Cloud

The cloud has significantly changed software development, allowing businesses to benefit from  improved scalability, flexibility, and efficiency. Cloud computing allows for easy integration of internal and external applications, enabling seamless communication and collaboration. When using microservice architecture, an application can span both internal and external (cloud) apps. Sometimes the entire application can be developed in the cloud. This approach not only increases agility, but also enables cost savings through resource optimization.

Languages and Platforms

At Atlantic BT, we take pride in our platform-agnostic approach to custom software development. This means we don’t limit ourselves to a single tool or platform. Instead, we choose the best technologies to solve specific problems for specific organizations. 

We frequently work with .NET, PHP, Python, AWS Lambda, and other technologies as needed. This flexible approach allows us to deliver tailored solutions that meet your unique business needs and objectives. With Atlantic BT, you can be confident that we’ll choose the right tools for your project, not just the ones we’re most familiar with.

Compliant Software Development Company

Compliance is a crucial aspect of custom software development, particularly when handling sensitive data and/or highly regulated industries. At Atlantic BT, we have extensive experience working with a variety of external compliance standards and governance models. Whether it’s HIPAA for healthcare, PCI DSS for payment card security, or GDPR for data protection, we have the expertise to ensure your software meets the necessary regulations.

But our commitment to compliance doesn’t stop there. We understand that each organization may have unique compliance requirements, and we’re ready to adapt our practices to meet these needs. Our team will work closely with you to understand your specific compliance obligations and develop a comprehensive plan to meet them. This includes conducting thorough audits, implementing robust security measures, and providing ongoing monitoring to ensure continuous compliance.

A Fail Fast Software Development Company

We’ve long been advocates of the concept “fail fast” as a software development company. By embracing this principle, we’ll identify the weakest aspects of an application early on in the development process. This allows us to prioritize the most challenging components first, leading to the discovery of potential issues and opportunity to make necessary adjustments. 

By addressing the hardest parts upfront, we gain valuable insights and create a more adaptable and flexible development environment. Our fail-fast philosophy ensures that we can efficiently iterate and improve upon our solutions, delivering optimum results for our clients.

Hybrid Agile Process

At Atlantic BT, we believe in the power of a Hybrid Agile process. This approach combines the best aspects of traditional project management methodologies with the flexibility and adaptability of Agile principles. While we deeply respect the Agile Manifesto and the Pragmatic Programmer, we understand that every project is unique and requires a tailored approach to custom software development.

Our Hybrid Agile process allows us to deliver high-quality applications while maintaining the flexibility to adapt to changing requirements. We iterate frequently, deploying working code often to ensure that our clients can see and experience the progress being made. This iterative approach to custom software development allows us to incorporate feedback quickly and make necessary adjustments in real-time.

We also understand the importance of planning and documentation in the development process. By meticulously documenting our work, we can measure progress accurately, manage expectations effectively, and ensure transparency throughout the software development lifecycle. This approach allows us to maintain a clear vision of the project’s goals and objectives, ensuring that we stay on track to meet our clients’ needs.

We view software development as a journey, not a destination. We are committed to continuous improvement, always seeking to learn, adapt, and grow with each project. Our Hybrid Agile Process is a testament to this commitment, providing a framework that promotes innovation, collaboration, and excellence. With Atlantic BT, your vision is our mission.

Documentation and Code Review

As an experienced software development company, we know that the best software isn’t created in isolation by a single developer. We firmly believe in the power of collaboration throughout the development process. With meticulous documentation, our developers can thoroughly analyze their work and effectively communicate their ideas to others for future development and maintenance of code. Additionally, our peer code review practices encourage continuous improvement. This enables our developers to enhance their own code as well as contribute to the growth of their fellow developers.  

Documentation is also vital for planning, so we can measure progress accurately, manage expectations effectively, and ensure transparency throughout the software development lifecycle. This approach allows us to maintain a clear vision of the project’s goals and objectives, ensuring that we stay on track to meet our clients’ needs.

Application Architecture

As a leading software development company, we know that architecture is everything. Just like constructing a building, a solid foundation is crucial for the success of any software or web application. Good architecture drives security, code quality, usability, scalability, and maintainability / total cost of ownership. With a technology-agnostic approach, we carefully assess the goals of each project and choose the most suitable tools to ensure optimal results. By combining this approach with smart architecture, we consistently deliver improved customized software and web applications.


DevOps, a combination of the terms “development” and “operations,” is a set of practices that combines software development and IT operations. It aims to shorten the system development life cycle and provide continuous delivery with high software quality. DevOps is integral to custom software development as it promotes a more agile relationship between development and IT operations.

As a software development company, we’re able to provide your business with an opportunity to integrate with our established DevOps toolchain. This can accelerate your progress without the need to build a DevOps culture from the ground up. This approach also allows us to support your existing development teams effectively, providing them with the necessary tools and practices to enhance their workflow. Read more here about how Atlantic BT’s collaborative DevOps environment benefits our long standing partnership with Conduent. 

As a software development company, we’re able to offer coaching on key DevOps practices such as deployment automation, application telemetry, and feedback cycles that are fast and controlled. This streamlines the process of moving software from development into production environments. In essence, our DevOps integration service equips your team with the tools and practices necessary for efficient and effective custom software development.

Quality Assurance (QA) Testing

We believe in the power of combining human ingenuity with machine precision to deliver software that is robust, reliable, and ready for real-world use. Our approach to QA Testing is two-fold. On one hand, we utilize the Cypress Testing framework and Gherkin syntax to automate as many tests as possible. This allows us to quickly identify and address common issues, ensuring the software performs as expected under normal conditions. 

On the other hand, as a software development company we understand that machines can’t replicate the unpredictability of human behavior. That’s why we have a team of human testers to explore boundary conditions and test the software in various environments. This blend of automated and manual testing ensures a comprehensive evaluation of the software, making sure it’s not just functional, but also user-friendly and intuitive. At Atlantic BT, we’re committed to developing custom software that stands up to the demands of your business and provides a seamless experience for your users.

Continuous Integration

Continuous integration is a practice in software development that allows us to integrate changes and updates in real-time. This practice ensures that the software remains in a deployable state throughout its development. By executing unit tests of business logic, we can verify that each component of the development functions as expected. Reporting on code conflicts helps us maintain the integrity of the codebase. Scanning for security issues and validating dependencies ensures that the software is secure and reliable. Additionally, by scanning third-party packages for known vulnerabilities, we can mitigate potential risks and safeguard the software against threats. This comprehensive approach to CI helps us deliver high-quality, secure, and efficient software solutions.

Continuous Delivery

In the realm of custom software development, Continuous Delivery (CD) plays a pivotal role. We embrace this approach by ensuring that our software is always in a state that’s ready for deployment to a production environment. We believe in the power of automation for deployments, leaving the planning and orchestration to our skilled team while machines handle the actual deployment process. 

This approach not only increases efficiency but also reduces the risk of human error. By scripting the infrastructure as code (IaC) and deployment pipelines from a main branch on the repository, we ensure predictable deployments and maintain a clear record of running code. This method allows our software development company to deliver solutions that are reliable, robust, and ready for real-world use at any given moment.
