Quality – Performance – Cost

Burr IST excel at producing high quality, cost effective, Data Driven Web Applications. We define these as being web sites which provide a service to the user; they have a function as opposed to just conveying information;  typically retrieving, analysing, storing and managing information for organisations or groups of organisations. We have a wealth of experience and many successful long standing relationships in a broad range of these applications.

Business Simulations

“Burr IST are the best co-developer we have ever found. Tremendous programming and development ability, great judgement and superb anticipation of the market – and they are nice people to work with. Highly Recommended”
JJ Faria, Managing Director, April Training Executive Ltd

Since 2004, Burr IST have been working closely with April Training developing their suite of online business training simulations. This has included turning their Executive simulation from a desktop based model into a web application. Executive is a web-based business simulation. It uses real current data to model the Western European Car Industry and allows teams to run competing companies in an interactive and challenging market. Executive has thousands of users every year, across academia and blue chip industry. Groups of up to 1000+ users can simultaneously play the business simulation, across multiple sites if required, in a competitive, team building environment.

Stuart Sanderson, director of Bradford school of management has said “Executive  is very sophisticated but also user-friendly and robust. Its versatility means we can use it in many ways. The software and documentation are excellent. This is experiential learning of the highest order.”
