Our Approach:

No matter how complex your software requirements might be, Tentacle Solutions aim to design, develop and deliver a comprehensive solution that makes sense for your business. Our innovative approach is based on a design-thinking methodology honed over decades of experience and hundreds of successful client projects.

We begin by listening and taking time to understand your business needs, therefore, determining what you want, and don’t want, from your software. Then, we create a plan for every aspect of your project so that your input is embedded into the project’s DNA long before we engage our highly skilled core development team into action.

Each client's experience with us is unique. However, in general, our projects go through the following processes :

  • Your requirements: these can be discussed in detail either through onsite visits or a series of video calls.
  • Information gathering: our team gathers as much information as possible about your daily business operations to design the best solution to your unique goals and needs. We believe that custom software should be: customised to address your business needs as seamlessly and cost-effectively as possible.
  • Analysis and Drill Down: our systems analysts create a requirements and specifications document that will become the road map for the development process. We believe firmly that this is a living document that is shared openly, modified when necessary, and discussed as needed.
  • Delivery: at each step of the development, your team will know what to expect. No surprises. No unexpected costs.

Tentacle Solutions adopt a multi-stage process developed to ensure you are engaging with our team at all times. In this way, your team can interact with all design details in each stage:

  • Wireframe design
  • Demonstration design
  • Integrated design

Implementation means that our coding team is at work developing the full functionality of your solution as mapped out in our analysis and design stages.

Testing is a Tentacle priority, so your project is tested at four rigorous levels

  • Internal testing
  • User testing
  • Stress testing
  • Live testing

Deployment means that your custom solution is delivered to its final server location, and you are ready to go live and elevate your business to the next level of efficiency.

Maintenance is a crucial part of any custom solution. Tentacle offers a variety of options to meet all business models, from On-Call to monthly maintenance contracts.

CSR and Community

Tentacle Solutions has sponsored the West College Scotland's annual graduation awards program for the last 4 years. We continuously look for ways to give back to the community and have sponsored several local and international charities.

We promote environmental responsibility among our employees through material management, emission reduction, and efficient energy-saving practices. As a company, we set measurable objectives and targets to achieve sustainable goals. Avoiding adverse impacts on our environment benefits the larger community and results in cost savings, increased operational efficiency and improved quality of our products and services. Above all, it provides a safe and healthy work environment for all of our employees.

As a responsible corporate entity, Tentacle Solutions is committed to protecting the environment in compliance with the environmental laws and the practices of the communities in Glasgow. We have embraced the principles of the European Union’s Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) and the ISO 14001:2015 family of environmental standards.

Tentacle's CSR and Community
Environmental Management System (EMS)

Tentacle Solutions has in place an effective Environmental Management System (EMS) summarised by the following principles:

  • application of good environmental practices globally
  • consideration of the environmental impact/footprint within the processes of development and engineering of our services/products
  • prevention of pollution by responsible management of materials, reduction of emissions and waste and efficient use of energy and natural resources
  • promotion of the idea of environmental responsibility among our employees. They are trained in managing their environmental responsibilities, dealing with day-to-day actions to help in preserving a healthy environment and reacting to environmental emergencies.
  • monitoring of our environmental performance and setting measurable objectives and targets for achieving sustainable improvement
  • communicating with our employees and local communities regarding our environmental commitment and performance; and regular audits of our procedures to ensure conformance to our policy; continuous improvement towards the actual and possible negative environmental impacts by Expansion (business areas increasingly get covered by the implemented EMS), Enrichment (activities, products, processes, emissions, resources, etc. increasingly get managed by the implemented EMS) and Upgrading (the structural and organizational framework of the EMS, as well as an accumulation of knowledge in dealing with business-environmental issues, is improved).

While pursuing our activities, we endeavour to minimise air, water and land pollution through energy and water conservation efforts. By doing so, we achieve cost savings, increased operational efficiency, improved quality and sustainability of products and services and ultimately, a safe environment for the community as a whole and a healthy workplace for our employees.
