Quantum Software Solutions primarily uses Microsoft technologies in both fully custom and customized off-the-shelf solutions. However, we're not Microsoft evangelists. We will advise upon the most suitable technologies for a particular project, and we are honest when third-party alternatives are more suitable.
We keep up-to-date with the latest technologies to ensure the longevity of our solutions, but we don't ever fit projects to a technology. If a solution calls for bleeding-edge technologies, we help you weigh up the potential risks against specific advantages they offer.
Development technologies used include:
- .NET Framework 4.5, including ASP.NET, XHTML, CSS, AJAX, Web API, WCF and Web Services
- Visual Studio 2012, including the C# and VB.NET languages
- SQL Server 2012, 2008 and 2005 including Reporting Services
- Microsoft Windows Server 2012 and 2008, including Internet Information Services
- Windows Installer XML for creating setup packages
Off-the-shelf products we have expertise customizing, extending and integrating into custom solutions include:

- Microsoft SharePoint 2013 and 2010
- Microsoft Office 2013, 2010 and 2007
Benefits of the .NET Framework
The .NET Framework is Microsoft's latest development platform and answer to Java. It provides a secure, robust and scalable foundation for high-performance applications. Unlike traditional development, software developed for .NET will be compatible with both current and future operating systems.
The extensive out-of-the box functionality and Visual Studio's tools allow us to focus on implementing quality solutions for our customers, instead of having to re-invent the wheel to accomplish simple tasks.
Benefits of SQL Server
SQL Server is Microsoft's enterprise database platform. Apart from great development tools which allow us to deliver quality software in a shorter timeframe, SQL Server is unique in that it is suitable for very-small applications, including those currently using Microsoft Access or even running on handheld PCs, all the way up to the largest systems of multi-national corporations.
The Express version, designed for smaller applications, is available free of charge and is often enough for systems used by small and medium-sized organizations.
