About Blue Door and the Software

About Blue Door and the Software

Inspire, create, deliver.

Blue Door Software started out as an idea behind a real blue door in 2003. Following formal incorporation in 2006, we have created functional, highly-usable, and beautiful software solutions for charities, not-for-profit organisations, academic institutions and SMEs.

In a Nutshell

We’re an independent software company that builds and licences desktop, web, and mobile software applications to third sector organisations across the UK. We also develop software for universities and colleges and the private sector.

The Mission

To help organisations meet specific data capture and reporting obligations with software that makes it easier to capture, analyse and share information. Or to put it another way, to use technology to make life a little bit easier.

The Team

Our team is led by a Product Manager with more than 10 years experience of third sector software development. With software developers, graphic designers, testers, and database administrators we’ve got the perfect mix to create compelling software.
