NFC Software Development

Here at No Fuss Computing we do create our own software. we create software not only as a hobby but to create something unique to assist the end user.

When we create software its aim is that of functionality and ease of use over cosmetics, this is due to everything here at No Fuss Computing being run by one person. We may be a bit slow on the development side getting to an end product but rest assured that our goals, some mentioned above are being met first alongside quality.

When we create software it does go through a rigorous beta testing system, this ensures that 99.9% of bugs and/or issues are discovered before you as the end user utilizes our software. Our beta testing consists of 3 stages that have differing degrees of computer knowledge and experience. If a bug or issue is discovered at any stage it will return to Stage 1 BETA testers and start the process again.

All software created by us has been branded so that you can quickly and easily identify it as coming from us, below is a list of things that we do to assist in its identification:

  1. put our logo on it (Fig 1),
  2. Digitally Sign each file in the package (Fig 2 and Fig 3),
  3. Digitally sign the installer, and
  4. provide information on our website about it.
