Nighthawk Software was founded in 2013 by Gavin Coates. We specialise in creating bespoke web based systems, either for internal use, or the creation of cloud based, SaaS products. We use the latest Microsoft technologies, such as C# ASP.NET MVC and Entity Framework for MS SQL Server.

Gavin previously worked for APD Ltd, where he worked on a number of projects for high profile clients such as Nissan and Pirelli. Gavin was the lead developer on Ornavi, a project management system created by APD initially for their own internal use, but later launched as an SaaS product.

Through his 11 years at APD, Gavin gained considerable experience in software engineering, particularly web development.

In 2017, Gavin left to establish Nighthawk Software, with the aim of making quality software engineering services available to the small to medium sized business.
