Delivering a Great Experience

Our website states that we recognise that whilst we solve a wide range of different problems for you, that, in itself, does not make us remarkable – countless other software companies tackle similar challenges on a daily basis.  However, the way we go about delivering those solutions is how we try to be different from those other software companies.

Our focus is very much towards providing a great experience for clients, from beginning to end.  Technical competence is of course a must, but the real differentiator for us is in how you feel at the end of the project.  The ‘Our Principles’ page on our website summarises our goals.  The client’s peace of mind is genuinely of paramount importance to us.  It is in our interest to create exceptional solutions and to deliver an exceptional experience that will facillitate the development of close relationships and ultimately for us, lead to repeat business and regular referrals.

It is very encouraging therefore when these efforts are recognised by others.  Following our recent Investors in People review, that we recently posted about, the reviewer commented:

“Throughout the Review it was clear that everyone is totally focused on customer service and quality, and there is no doubt that these factors enable Zircon to enjoy high levels of customer retention. This culture is underpinned by solid well established business processes such as strong project control and quality management.”

We strongly believe that long lasting relationships that bring value to both parties can only be formed by addressing those areas beyond simple technical competence and price.  Quality, Project Management and Customer Service are so much more than simply buzz words to us, and it’s great to see that this has been recognised by those outside of the organisation.

Lets Talk Software

If you are looking for a team to support your current software venture and think Zircon can help you ensure project succes, we would love to hear from you.
