Who are we?
Software-Matters are a small team (4 at the moment), based in Gillingham in Dorset, close to the county borders of Somerset and Wiltshire. If you are based in the cities of Bournemouth, Poole, Southampton, Bristol, Bath or Salisbury, then we are nearby.
Software-Matters was started in 1994 by the managing director, Philippa Turnbull.
Philippa, who lives in Gillingham, Dorset, has a Masters in Engineering from Cambridge University and has worked with computer software all of her working life - 25+ years! She worked for two blue-chip companies - British Aerospace and Procter & Gamble - before setting up Software-Matters. She therefore has business understanding and experience as well as the technical knowledge. These are the keys to producing systems that do exactly what your business needs them to.
