Solution Development

One of the main services we offer at ESS is custom web application development for the university. We evaluate the needs of students and faculty through goal and process analysis to produce solution development for the department and to inform technology purchases. 

If you are interested in custom application development or would like ESS to help your organization create a solution for an issue, please fill out a consultation form.
