Polyhedron Software: consultancy and programming, scientific software
Polyhedron Software was established by Dr John Appleyard in 1989 when he developed and marketed the plusFORT suite of tools for Fortran programmers, initially from his home and then from purpose-built business premises in Oxfordshire, UK.
Over the years the team has increased in size, in the diversity of skills we offer to our customers and in the range of projects and marketplaces in which we are involved. We are proud of our worldwide reputation for the quality and integrity of our consultancy services, product development and software sales.
We specialise in selling and writing technical and scientific software and this combination of knowledge and skills puts us in a unique position to understand customers’ needs and deliver the best service.
Our clients and projects portfolio reflects our expertise in many areas, our willingness to provide a personalised service to businesses and individuals, and our readiness to undertake projects of all sizes and potential duration.
Examples of fields in which we have worked include radiography, solid state physics research, fuse design, mortgage lending, econometric research and lighting calculations, to name but a few.
Although we specialise in Fortran, Delphi and Visual Basic programming and porting, we also have the expertise to manage projects in other languages.
MirriM, a software tool for synchronizing files in two locations, is developed and marketed by us and our close association with Oxford University Press has resulted in the publication of many software titles, including DTMM.
Sales and Technical Support
As accredited UK distributors for a range of companies we offer comprehensive software sales and technical support services, online and over the telephone.
We use the compilers we sell, so we are able to offer informed advice in matching different products to customers’ individual requirements. Our independent and impartial compiler benchmark tables are considered to set industry performance standards.
We are small enough to offer a personal service, aiming to provide next day delivery for all software we have in stock. By working co-operatively with our suppliers we are able to secure prompt delivery of software we need to order.
The Polyhedron Team
Our consultants are happy to offer technical support and advice directly to customers over the telephone or by email. If we cannot respond immediately, we will respond to your request as quickly as possible. We set ourselves high customer service standards and measure our success through the comments we regularly receive from customers.
Our team has grown together by sharing knowledge and experience gained from the consultancy and software sales sides of our business over the years. In passing the benefit of this expertise to customers we provide a first-rate, friendly and informed service.
