From concept to reality.


Quick Start.

The real beginning of a startup is when you get to the point of being able to take a minimum viable product (MVP) to market to see if prospective customers want what you are making. The faster you can get there the better. But how can you go fast without spending a lot of money? If you spend everything on development, how will you be able to market? A lot of folks look overseas for the answers to these questions, but at Henderson Systems, we think that's a mistake. Of course, there are great developers overseas, but there are plenty of bad ones too. In addition, there are the common frustrations due to communication issues, lack of knowledge of the American culture, and time differences. We believe the end result is much better, and often more cost effective overall, to start with "Made in the U.S.A", and look for low risk ways to fit in offshore help.

What it really takes to pull off a MVP quickly and cost effectively is the right combination of technical know-how and practical business knowledge. Great products require more than great developers. They require developers who can be experts in the business of the product being developed. Henderson Systems delivers the business experience that makes the difference.

  • Technical Experts in Making Software Quickly
  • Practical Business Experience
  • Made in the U.S.A.
  • Offshore Available If/When Appropriate


At Henderson Systems, when we develop for you, we develop as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. We can do this by either using open source frameworks, or by using and extending pre-built software modules, and by using advanced proprietary code generation tools to take ideas from concept to reality. As much as 50%-75% of the time and cost of building your apps can be reduced in this way.

Like any project which includes building something, you have to pick the right tool for the job. That's why we always keep up with the latest developments of stable technology. What may have been right for a product 2 years ago may not be right for the product now. At Henderson Systems, we use many different technologies to solve the problems and deliver the product, all depending on the right fit.

Ultimately though, successful development isn't just about how well a programmer knows a language. It is about how well the team understands and implements the right process for design, testing, given the timeline and budget. And that takes the kind of business experience Henderson Systems offers its partners and clients.

  • Open source stacks: Linux, Node.js, Ruby on Rails, Postgresql, Redis, and others
  • Microsoft stack: Windows, C#, MVC/WebApi, SQL Server
  • Mobile: iOS, Android, Windows, native and Cordova
  • Cloud: Private, AWS, Azure, Heroku
  • Wireframing, Prototyping, Content, Identity, Styleguides


Now that you have a vested partner, and you have suspended the belief that your development needs to be "in-house" when you are getting started, why should that stop at development? With a strong technology partner like Henderson Systems, when you are smaller, why take on a full-time CTO? Henderson Systems can help manage and grow your entire technology department.

A partner with a responsibilty to the company as a partner - like Henderson Systems has with many of its partners - should be capable of providing all the technology leadership that the company needs. Henderson Systems is always open to and up to the technical leadership challenge for its partners, and can also work to transition to in-house leadership when the time comes.

Even as a client, with software and business expertise, Henderson Systems can perform in an advisory role for the life of the product, if desired. The bottom line is that Henderson Systems is in your corner for as long as needed.
