Full Metal Software
Unit 2 Basset Court
Northampton, Northamptonshire NN4 5EZ
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.
