We have been serving the e-democracy and open systems markets since 2002 and aim to provide you with the same convenient, quality service that has made us a leader in the sector.


Our knowledge is our strength. We have unparalleled expertise in developing open source web solutions and online communities. If you have a requirement for a large open source project we can assist you: helping to specify your ideas, check concepts, or evaluate proposed technical solutions.

Our team members have experience in the e-consultancy and e-democracy areas, and were involved in the UK's first major projects in these fields as consultants and software developers. Although technology is important to the company and remains an essential part of the business, increasingly clients are using the expertise of COS to remain at the forefront of e-democracy implementation in the UK..

Tailored application development

We recommend, deliver and support applications based on open source technologies where appropriate. Since 2002, we have provided top-quality, open source based development and support to our customers and have assisted them in achieving their goals. Our experience and commitment to excellence have earned us a reputation as a best of breed supplier with our customers.

Open source support

We provide consultancy and development to Red Hat, manage the UK-wide APLAWs community, and support one of the world's largest NGO's web presence (42 websites in 36 countries with 37 languages - all built on an open source platform deployed and managed by COS).

What we can do for you

We are able to provide the complete solution to your web environment needs from requirements analysis through to development, delivery, and support.
