Bearded Hen has been a long term partner of Dyena Ltd, and we continue to enjoy working with them on the development of our apps and systems. We visualise the result, sketching the concept, and their skills turn it into a working product. Their disciplined programming methods and broad knowledge have been crucial to the success of our products. I consider Bearded Hen a member of our team and they provide me with the confidence that I can rely upon their support whenever it’s needed.
I went to Bearded Hen with ideas and a vision but little else, they patiently and diligently worked to create a reality. The new app was enhanced by their own input and creativity and ability to be so agile in their approach to development.
Without their support and technical intelligence I doubt I would have made it beyond the ideas stage.
