Our customers speak

KG Charles-Harris

CEO, Quarrio

Until we started working with NTR we were struggling to meet our engineering targets and get product out in time.

After working with NTR we have been able to deploy to our initial customers, start our next generation product and are executing our strategic plan in a way that was previously unthinkable. NTR is great to work with, gives good input and executes the development without delay.

Oleg Podsechin

Founder, StartHQ

I was introduced to Nick from NTR by one of their clients in Cambridge, UK back in 2009. Since then I have worked with NTR on multiple startup projects for third party clients with great success.

Nick's team was always very responsive, readily available to start work, clear in their communications with the clients and delivered on time and to a high standard. I would highly recommend them to any startup or more established company looking for a reliable development partner.

Nolan Orfield

Founder and CEO, ClearEstimates

I have been working with NTR Lab since 2004, when we hired them to transform an Access database based program into a software product for the construction industry. It was the best decision we've made!

Through several product launches they have helped build Clear Estimates into a leader in the industry with a reputation for well-designed, robust, and easy to use software. In 2013 NTR Lab helped bring our company to the next level by building a cloud-based SaaS platform that is as fast and versatile as it is easy on the eye.

They are now a crucial partner for our company and help us roll out new features on a regular basis. I would recommend them in a heartbeat.
