Custom Software

At Grandjean & Braverman we specialize in creating fully customized software solutions for our clients. We believe that being great programmers (which we are) is not enough to create truly useful software. Rather, it is more important to understand how that software will be used. That is why our process emphasizes understanding your requirements first and foremost.

Over the years, we have enjoyed long relationships with several clients. As anyone in business will tell you, these types of relationships are only earned through a commitment to customer service. Let us help you with your next project and see how far we can go together.

Existing Solutions

We know not everyone can afford a truly unique software package. That is why we have put together this page. Featured here are several projects that are currently being used by satisfied clients. All of the programs described on this page can be fully customized to your individual needs. However, since we have already dedicated our time in developing these solutions, we are able to offer them at lower prices than we can for a completely custom project that must be built from the ground up.
