Bid for Wine logo, used with permission

Ept Computing undertook the entire technical design, development and realisation of Bid for Wine, an auction site for wine which is shaking up the old ways of how fine wine is bought and sold. The site is unique in providing integrated invoicing and tax and duty calculation for buyers and sellers, making the process easier and more transparent than ever before.

…Ept was the only company (out of 5 contestants) to respond in a manner which showed a real understanding of the technical side of the project as well as a broader engagement with the concept as a whole. The project was successfully delivered on time and on budget despite several major alterations and additions to the brief during the development phase. Martin always responded to these changes in a constructive manner and worked exceptionally hard to make sure he could see their relevance to the project in the round rather than simply as a technical issue to overcome. (…) His strong work ethic and personal skills made us feel that Martin was very much a member of our team, rather than simply a contractor. – Lionel Nierop, Managing Director, Bid for Wine (read the full testimonial)

Bupa logo, used with permission

Bupa, a major worldwide provider of health insurance and healthcare services, required a Facebook application to help and encourage people who want to give up smoking, and to promote a smoke-free life amongst users of the social networking site. Bupa commissioned Ept Computing to develop the Quitclock Facebook application, which tracks the money a user has saved since quitting, encourages friends to give support, and provides positive feedback and health tips.

Ept Computing successfully and professionally developed and deployed the Quitclock project, which was Bupa’s first Facebook application. Many Facebook users installed the application on their profiles. The client was very pleased with the outcome and the project was met with much positive feedback.

Imense logo, used with permission

Imense is a Cambridge start-up that aims to become the “Google of image searching”. Imense’s search technology is uniquely powerful because it analyses the content of an image, unlike other image search engines, which rely entirely on the surrounding text. Employing semantic web technology and a large number of classifiers, Imense is able to search the visual content of large numbers of images.

Ept Computing has built a paid-for search interface for Imense on mobile phones, by using SMS, MMS, mobile web and SMS-based billing.

“Martin is very easy to work with. If there is a practical solution to your problem he will find it, he is not afraid of background research and he tests things. I have been very pleased with the work carried out by Martin at Ept and have no hesitation in recommending him. Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert.” – David Sinclair, CEO, Imense
