Changing the way you think about building software

2020 marks our 23rd year developing custom software, yet we feel like we’re just getting started.

About SAS Apps

The SAS Apps Story

Over the years, we’ve been fortunate to earn the repeat business of amazing customers including some of the biggest brands in the UK, and some of the smallest. It’s rare that a software business is equally as popular with PLCs and start-ups, but we are that kind of company. We have grown-up processes and accreditations, but we are as approachable as a start-up.

We take our work seriously, but not ourselves. The software we develop for our customers makes a difference to people’s lives. It really matters, and we take a lot of pride in that.

By Chris Owen-Smith, Founder

We the people

We’re programmers, designers, brewers, UX specialists, jigsaw-ers, walkers, dog lovers, project managers, baristas, testers, analysts, chefs, engineers, parents, problem solvers, filmmakers, tea makers, architects, gardeners, bikers, tourists, fans, DIYers, consultants, runners, speakers, gamers, readers, volunteers, governors, campers and all damned hard workers.

A diverse group that is proud of the differences that enable us to bring such a rich set of skills and experience to our work.

Our team culture does not come from the foosball table, our cool warehouse or the baked potatoes we eat together every Tuesday, it comes from our values. We care about, and look after each other, everyone contributes to how we run our business for the benefit of ourselves and our customers. We love the fact that we are all learning and growing together.

We’re big believers in the power of keeping things simple. Our continuous improvement obsession ensures we keep ourselves honest, challenging everything we do constantly.
