We handle everything from the development of new ColdFusion apps and websites to maintenance and updates on legacy ColdFusion websites and apps. If you have a ColdFusion project, we’ll get the job done correctly, the first time.

When it comes to ColdFusion, we are the experts. We’ve been working with ColdFusion since version 1.5, we ran the CFUnited International Conference, and we’ve been awarded the “Best ColdFusion Consulting Firm” by the CFDJ (ColdFusion Developers’ Journal) 5 times in a row.

I love solving business problems and creating high-quality custom software.

So! I founded TeraTech: The ColdFusion Experts: Develop, Secure, Optimize.

I have worked extensively with ColdFusion, SQL and Visual Basic. I have been programming and doing project management for over 35 years. I have both a Bachelors and Masters degree in math from Cambridge and graduated 8th in my year.

I also teach Kundalini yoga and energy healing. I love helping people grow and transform. Practicing yoga has helped me succeed in IT because it keeps me calm in the middle of high-pressure projects!

The TeraTech Difference

At TeraTech, we do things a little differently. You don’t have to worry about your project being completed correctly or on time. With our expert team and time-tested process, you’ll have “peace of mind” in knowing the exact scope of the project, how much it’s going to cost, and when it will be complete.

Your ColdFusion project should NOT be something that you worry about. We’ll make sure of that.

We Consistently Meet Deadlines

Missing deadlines can be stressful and costly. You need to know when your application will go live so you can announce the date of your launch, begin marketing and promoting the launch, and do the hiring and training around it.

Unfortunately, most software projects are not properly managed and involve a lot of debugging time that just can’t be predicted. That’s a HUGE deadline problem. Luckily, we do things differently…

We go through a formal signoff process on the exact requirements upfront, so the scope of work is clear and the project stays on track. We manage every step of the process closely to make sure we resolve any issues that could put the project deadline at risk. We also have a proven formula for accurately determining the length of a project, and we assign a dedicated project manager to keep everyone on task. We are so good at meeting deadlines that we guarantee that your project will be done on time or we will double your warranty period at no charge.

We Offer “Overspend Protection”

You need to know what your project is going to cost before you start. There’s nothing worse than surprises when it comes to the costs involved with a project. Sadly, most developers are not clear about the scope of work or requirements on a project, and you’re the one that ends up paying for that lack of clarity.

We ask the difficult questions right from the start and properly assess what you want done and how much it will cost to get your there. We’ll give you an accurate cost to complete the work based on elements we discuss in the beginning. If there are newly introduced elements that would increase the costs involved in the project, we’ll get your approval before we work on anything new and always give you the option to stick with the original scope, budget, and schedule.

3-Step Bug Testing Process
(Included At No Additional Cost To You)

Configuration issues and late stage bugs can cause a software project to exceed budget and miss deadlines. Although we do everything we can to avoid bugs, software coding is complex and it does happen from time to time.

Most developers charge you by the hour to fix bugs. NOT TeraTech. We go through an extensive, 3-step process to take care of bugs at our cost.

Step #1 – Internal testing to find and eliminate bugs

Step #2 – 30-day acceptance testing with your real data

Step #3 – 30 days after you go live, we’ll fix bugs for FREE

We are the ColdFusion experts. We do it right, on time, and on budget.

Are We A “Fit” For
Your Company?

We’ll be the first to tell you that not all companies are a “fit” for TeraTech. We’ve found that companies with roughly 500-500 employees with ColdFusion apps that are built and faltering or have apps that need to be built are the clients that benefit the most from using TeraTech. With firms this size, we take the stress out of doing it in-house and get things done right, the first time.
