Welcome to Camlann Software

All your software solutions in one place.

Who are Camlann Software?

Camlann Software is a small software house, specialising in writing software for small to medium businesses. We moved from Auckland a couple of years ago, intending to wind down and eventually retire, but things didn't quite work out that way. I think it was Confucius that said "Choose a job you love, and you'll never have to work a day in your life". Well I've been lucky like that, and I'm still doing this primarily because I have a passion for what I do. If you're a craftsman as I like to think I am, you'll know exactly what I mean.

What we do is to write bespoke software, that is software that is expressly built for you. It will do exactly what you want it to, without any extra bits. What we won't do is re-sell somebody else's software that's been rehashed to do nearly what you want. And, as you can see from our prices I'm not going to charge the earth for it.

Nowadays, the first thing people reach for when they're looking for goods and services is the internet, so if you want to compete, or at least have a presence in todays modern market, you need an up to the minute, well laid out website. I can provide that for you, at a price that definitely won't make your nose bleed.

I can also write office and company management software to streamline the office tasks you can spend so much time doing. GST, Wages, Invoicing, Purchasing, just about everything that you do that's not the main part of your business. Lets talk about it, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

What We Do

How We Work

We write software that is personal to your needs, and will do exactly what you want it to do. To do that, we may need to work with you for a few days, to fully understand how you work.


I've been writing software for over 25 years now, and I've been an engineer for a lot longer than that. There's not much I haven't seen or done.

What We Can Do For You

There's very little that we can't do as far as software goes. We can calculate GST, wages, handle purchase and sales records, anything that needs doing round the office. In short, if you can think of it, we can probably do it. I only work on one job at a time, so when I take on your job, i can concentrate my full attention to it.


Unlike a lot of software houses, if we need to do any research to finish your project we'll do it on our own time, and you won't be charged for it.


Your project and data will be held securely in our servers and any really sensitive data will be encrypted with the latest state of the art encryption processes.

What We Don't Do

We don't fix computers, set up printers, get your new software working, (except ours), or do anything concerned with computer hardware. If you need someone to do this, give me a call, I'll put you on to some top people that will.

Why You Need Us


You may think that you don't need it, but it's one of the most important aspects of your company. If you don't advertise, then you'll have to rely on word of mouth, which is sketchy at best. The best way to advertise whatever it is you do, is to have a modern, up to date web site, that will grab new customers and tell them what it is you're offering.

We can build that for you with a minimum of fuss, at a price that won't make your nose bleed.


There's two components of the pricing. That's what I charge, and if you want a website, there'll be a cost attached to getting that set up.

I charge a flat rate of $75.00 an hour. To give you an idea, to write a website will take about 4 hours per page, which works out at $300.00. Some pages will be more complicated than others and will cost more, others are simpler and cost less, but that's about the average.

The cost of setting up a website depends on a lot of things such as the type of website you want, the ISP (Internet Service Provider) you want to use and quite a few others. For this I can only say that the maximum cost of setting up an all-singing, all-dancing active website, with all the bells and whistles will be around $300. We can talk about this though.

Before I write anything for you, we will discuss what you want, and I will give you a firm quote that I will stick to.
