Outsourced Embedded Software and Hardware Development

Applied Software Engineering (ASE) is one of the UK’s leading development companies providing outsourced development for embedded software and hardware.

Our unique approach, which incorporates fixed price and software guarantee, provides clients with the ability to reduce costs and meet challenging development timescales which, in turn means shorter time to market, additional sales and increased satisfaction for their customers.

Services include all elements of the project lifecycle; analysis, specification, development, testing and full project management, with the additional benefit of trouble shooting and post-implementation support. Unusually, our breadth and depth of experience allows us to include support of systems not originally developed by us. We also provide skilled engineers to clients who need additional resource or specific skills on an ad hoc basis for their internal developments.

Development capabilities include embedded software over a wide range of applications, and hardware designs for both high volume and high margin products. We have extensive experience across a wide range of industries.

Clients report a wide range of benefits in outsourcing to us for their important developments, and we are regularly called in to trouble shoot and rescue internal projects that are struggling.
