Software Development

Innovative systems, tailored to your requirements and budget.

We can move conventional IT solutions towards cutting edge solutions through the application of advanced maths techniques and a deep knowledge of future technological trends. Our consultants have worked with organisations of all sizes, including industry leaders and government bodies such as:

  • Motorola
  • BBC
  • Tesco Personal Finance
  • The Ministry of Defence

Our dynamic yet rigorous approach delivers the right technology to realise value for your business.


We will work with you to identify the techniques and technologies best suited to a problem. However for the technically minded, we have particular expertise in:

  • Data-mining: Find the value hidden in your data
  • Optimisation
  • Planning
  • Logistics
  • Robotics
  • Machine learning: Computer systems that learn from examples. E.g. neural nets and genetic algorithms. Machine learning can be tricky to use effectively. We have worked with a wide range of techniques, and will recommend which to use and how to apply it.
  • Statistical reasoning, including sophisticated techniques such as data fusion and combining human intuition with statistics
  • Mathematical modelling: Through simulating complex systems, Winterwell can help you manage risk and reduce uncertainty.
  • Natural Language Processing (NLP): Computer systems that partially understand English and other human languages
  • Logical modelling: Rule based systems for business processes

By creatively applying these techniques and technologies, Winterwell aims to provide the best approach to your problem. Our solutions are bold, high quality, and high value.

Golden cogs in clockwork

Example: Biotech Computation

Problem: A world-leading biotech company knew what they needed to do to optimize their breeding program, but not how to do it in a reasonable amount of time.

Solution:Using specialised sparse-matrix techniques we provided a millionfold performance improvement that delivers answers in a matter of hours.

Related problems: Mathematical techniques can have a broad range of applications. This technology was also used in deciphering text messages.

Complete solutions

Winterwell Associates can provide complete solutions, taking a project from initial requirements, through design and architecture to deployment and support. We will work with your existing IT infrastructure to deliver solutions that meet your needs.


We have specific technology offerings for some sectors:


Some of our software is available as open source.
