The Digital Mettle Difference


Digital Mettle collaborates with our clients to understand the unique challenges of their industries. By understanding a business as a whole and demonstrating solid return on investment, we become trusted to make continuous improvements across our clients’ organizations.


Being a service provider with our longevity is an important distinction. Unlike other development companies, we are not just waiting for the right time to pivot to become a product company. We don’t retain ownership of customer intellectual property to resell it. We will still be here, doing quality custom software development when you need us in the future. Nothing inspires new feature requests like having a finished piece of software in-hand, and you want to make sure you select a firm who will be there to provide the enhancements you need.

Client Testimonials

Digital Mettle have been more than contractors. They have been an integral part of our team since the inception of our company in 2005. Anything that I have conceptualized, no matter how weird and wild, they have been able to build.
Charles W. Crutchfield, Founder & CEO, Simple Certified Mail
Digital Mettle cares deeply about the application they are building and the problems they are trying to solve. They think about all of the deeper questions that ultimately make software better. That is not what you always get from other developers, who often just want to "check a box" and say "it’s done".
Michael Worthington, CEO, BrightDoor Systems, Inc.
Digital Mettle knows how to help their clients understand the challenges, costs, risks, and rewards from multiple perspectives. No matter the enormous challenge thrown at them, Digital Mettle always finds a way to exceed expectations and deliver amazing products on time.
Aaron Mazze, Principal, Inveniv
Digital Mettle never “goes off in left field” like other development companies I've worked with. They always listen to what we have to say and deliver a solution which matches our needs on time and with minimal bugs.
Mark DeVine, Owner, Sensible Data Solutions
The technology they delivered is a great product, but more importantly, Digital Mettle is easy to work with. This is what how they really differentiate themselves. My company started from nothing, we were able to articulate verbally our ideas and Digital Mettle translated that into the technical solution that we needed to get started.
William C. Dengler, MD, FACS; President, Legato Medical Systems, Inc.
What I like about working with Digital Mettle is that they give options and advice that help guide us to the best solution for the business case. When we have a project, they provide a personalized approach to the process of building the solution.
Christine Shimasaki, Managing Director, Destinations International
Digital Mettle was able to quickly learn the complexities of our business. I am proud that together we built a robust and aesthetically pleasing platform that is being used by hundreds of our clients.
Adam Sacks, Managing Director, Tourism Economics
Digital Mettle is unlike any company of software engineers I've ever worked with. Smart, but down to earth. Left-brain dominant, but understand right-brain driven marketing. Will actually sit in front of a client and talk business objectives.
Joseph Gaitens, Marcomm Strategy Consultant, Independent
Honesty is what sets Digital Mettle apart. I've had many other vendors mislead me about what they know how to do, and Digital Mettle always tells it like it is.
Minh Duong, System Specialist, Sullo & Sullo, LLP Attorneys at Law
I have been impressed with the level of detail they have for projects like ours, as well as their desire to simply get the job done. On our project they simply ran the project like they owned it. When looking for outside resource they are the best I have experienced!
Grant Williard, Founder & CEO, JouleBug
They are knowledgeable, responsive to messages, and very patient with me! I feel very fortunate to have found them!
Barbara Christensen, Founder, Speech Advantage
Digital Mettle is great to work with. They are very responsive and met or exceeded our expectations on delivery time at each milestone. They also developed training guidelines for installing the Add-Ins. Digital Mettle has continued to be great to work with as we have revised the software multiple times over the past year. I would highly recommend Digital Mettle for your software development needs.
Kevin Giles, President, Giles Flythe Engineers, Inc.

Sample Project Sizes

Customer needs come in all shapes and sizes, but inevitably the first questions are “can you do it?”, “how much will it cost” and “when can it be done”.  Typically these are asked way before there is enough detail understood to give any kind of accurate answers.  Here is a sample of the types of projects we are asked to do and the time & cost ballparks they typically fall into.

From automation tools to major new products, please don’t hesitate to call and discuss how we can help.
