About

Taskforce has been providing software and consultancy services to the offshore financial services industry for a total of 23 years. Our clients range from the large multinational bank to small independent trust companies, accountancy practices and specialist service providers.

Our founder and senior software architect, Tim Benest, has been writing commercial software since 1980. Our development manager at Taskforce Research Limited, Sandy Donaldson, has been with the company since 1994. We are able to provide solutions to those hard to solve problems, providing an impressive return on the investment from our extensive skills base.

We are great supporters of Open Source Software, having used FirebirdSQL since it’s inception as an open source project, and the Linux operating system from 1998 onwards. Of late we have been using the Ruby Language as one of our development environments, as it allows us to provide on-site bespoke scripting, due to the interpretative dynamic nature of the language.

We have always liked to break the mould, with our projects, choosing what we believe to be the best tool for the job, rather than the tool everyone else is using. This has proved beneficial to both our clients and ourselves and shown in the robustness and stability of the software solutions that we deliver.
