Software to get Results in Your Business

Driving strong outcomes for your business is important. Automate your everyday business operations, integrate your software and get support when you need it most.

API Build and Integrations

Based in Wollongong, connecting your business with the world. Working with a range of providers from payment gateways like Stripe and PayPal, cloud providers Google & AWS down to niche applications such as custom software setups.

Custom API Development: I design and develop custom APIs tailored to your specific business needs. From RESTful APIs to custom solutions and everything in between, I craft solutions that facilitate data exchange, automate tasks, and unlock new possibilities for your business.

Third-Party API Integration: I will seamlessly integrate third-party APIs into your existing systems or applications, extending their capabilities and enhancing their functionality. Whether it's payment gateways, social media platforms, or cloud services, we ensure smooth communication between different software components.

Legacy System Integration: Outdated software can be cumbersome and difficult to manage, reducing business productivity. Modernize your underperforming software by integrating it with modern APIs. I'll bridge the gap between old and new technologies, enabling legacy applications to communicate with modern platforms and ensuring continuity in your business operations.

Business Automation

Streamline business operations from simple invoice follow-ups to connecting your e-commerce website to your marketing tools.

Workflow Automation: I'll analyze your existing business processes and identify opportunities for automation. Whether it's automating data entry, document processing, or task assignment, we develop workflow automation solutions tailored to your specific needs.

Data Integration and Sync: Seamlessly integrate and synchronize data across different systems and platforms. From CRM and ERP systems to e-commerce platforms and marketing tools, we ensure that your data is always up-to-date and accurate, eliminating data silos and improving decision-making.

Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Automation: Enhance your customer interactions and streamline your sales processes with CRM automation. From lead nurturing and follow-up reminders to personalized communication and sales pipeline management, we automate repetitive CRM tasks, allowing your team to focus on building meaningful relationships with customers.

Website and Domain Recovery

Wollongong based. Support Australia wide.

Website Recovery: If your website has been hacked, broken, you can't contact the developer, or even just broke it doing some updates, I'll get you up and running again. I'll detect, diagnose, resolve and report back on what went wrong, and how we can get it back. This expands into proactive services such as upgrading software plugins (especially on platforms like WordPress) and preventing future attacks.

Domain Recovery: Have you lost access to your domain, or are you unable to contact the business that is managing it for you? This can be stressful, but it doesn't have to be. Whether it's due to accidental expiration, domain hijacking, or registrar issues, I'll help you navigate the recovery process and regain control of your domain as quickly as possible. From communicating with registrars or AUDA to verifying ownership and recovering access, we'll handle the entire process on your behalf.

Top Questions from Clients

Here to answer any/all questions. Here are a few top ones to get you started.

Your requirements and business needs are unique. So my approach will vary accordingly. Most commonly I will approach as follows:
Initial meeting: Let's make sure I'm the right fit for your needs. I'll also use this time to make sure that I'm able to deliver on what you're looking for (no empty promises).
Design: I'll put together a proposed solution to meet the needs of what you're looking for. This allows you to feel confident as we approach the situation together and put you back in the driver's seat.  Remember, it's your business, so let's make sure it's the right direction for what you.
Implementation: Building out the solution. This comes in many forms including training, software development, mediation (between multiple parties) and more.
  Short, medium or long term support as required.

If your website has stops working, or is having errors there can be a range of solutions. As an starting checklist:

Don't wait: Timeliness is key. The longer you wait the harder it is to recovery a lost website and/or domain.
Review Recent Changes: Think about any recent updates or changes made to the website. Reverting those changes might resolve the issue.
Call your hosting provider: It might be a simple fix that they can resolve over the phone.
Check for known outages: If your website is inaccessible, it might be because your website hosting is down. Check with your hosting provider.
Clear Cache: Clear your browser cache and try accessing the website again. If unsure, another way to test this is to use a private/incognito window.
Contact Anthony: If you get stuck, reach out and I'll be happy to help. I work full time, so support is exclusively after hours, which might be the type of help you need.


At this point in my career I've supported almost any API setup that you might need. Some common ones I work with include:
Payment Gateways: Stripe, Xero and eWay
Analytics: Google Analytics, Google Search Console and DataStudio
CRM: Hubspot, Salesforce
eCommerce: Shopify, WooCommerce, Drupal
No-Code: Zapier,
Cloud: Azure, Google, AWS
Other: Mailchimp, iOS & Android

If it's not listed here, let me know as I can probably work with it anyway, as most APIs follow a similar setup and usage process.

Pricing can vary. Hourly rate services can range from $100-400 per hour (depending on location, time and urgency).

Most services however are fixed cost and quoted prior to the service commencement.

I'm work full time as a developer lead in Wollongong, NSW. As I work full time, my support is limited to after hours only.

Under some circumstances I'm able to work around these requirements but assume that this isn't the case.
