At Edument, we know from experience that investing a little effort into the software development tool chain and process for a project will pay great dividends. The quality of the product, your ability to quickly make new deployments, developer productivity and business value will all benefit.
One tool that we have found useful over and over again in our development work on the Windows platform is FinalBuilder. We have successfully implemented it for a number of our clients, leading to improvements in their productivity and overall software quality. We offer consulting to help you improve your development process through using FinalBuilder too.
What's On Offer?
- Automise - to help automate repetitive administrative tasks
- Final Builder - for graphically creating an automated build process for software projects, including integration with version control systems, compilers, installation builders, and more

How many of these are true for your organization? If you're not sure what one of them is, or why it might matter, click for more information.
FinalBuilder can help with most of these, and fits in well with all of them. Of course, FinalBuilder won't magically result in your project having tests and being under version control. However, it does encourage use of both of these best practices and and makes your use of them even more valuable.
How can we help you?
If you want to try out FinalBuilder for yourself, you can download a free trial version today. If you find it useful, we are able to provide FinalBuilder licenses.
Within Sweden, Edument can also provide on-site consulting services to help you understand whether FinalBuilder is suitable for your organization and start using it effectively. Typically, in an initial consultation we will look at your project(s) and current development process, what other tools you are using and suggest how you might apply FinalBuilder to your specific situation. We can also provide training on how to use FinalBuilder.
You can also outsource development of your build scripts to us. As well as writing FinalBuilder scripts, we can develop custom actions for any of your build needs that FinalBuilder does not already support. We have used FinalBuilder in a range of projects, both those we started from scratch and those we took over development of, and had a great deal of success with it in both cases.
