Our Philosophy: Better software through consultation.

The Halogenics team are dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions and related services for the education and biomedical research sectors.

We prefer to ask you how the software should work - you are the experts - you know what you need the software to do.

Our job is to build software which integrates as smoothly as possible into your existing workflows and practices.

It should make sense - We strive to develop software which is easy and intuitive to use - if you're constantly having to struggle to get things done then software becomes an impediment to your work, rather than a tool to simplify and complement the workflows you've worked so hard to establish.

We endeavour to be as transparent as possible in our development processes. If you have a problem you need solved, or an issue with something our software is doing, we encourage you to ask - you're the experts, and challenging our assumptions and implementation results in better software for you.
