Desktop App Design & Development

From ERP systems to device management, desktop apps go beyond the browser.

We develop desktop apps that power your business.

Whether you're working without internet or looking to integrate a local database— a desktop app can provide the reliability and security you need.

A desktop app provides the processing capabilities needed to integrate large file systems or databases. At Atomic, we create desktop apps that are long-lasting and simple to maintain.

Our goal is to maximize your return on investment. And we deliver on time and on budget, thanks to our smart budgeting and reliable process.

We’ve presented the app to some of our investors and strategic collaborators, and they all love it. The increased functionality has had a great impact on the user experience of the app overall.

Desktop applications have the power you need to run your business. As an internal business tool, a desktop app can connect to your database and integrate with your file systems without the need for internet connectivity.

Atomic has built many sophisticated desktop apps, utilizing tools like .NET, XCode, Electron, and more.


Without testing, software can be vulnerable to bugs and hackers, leading to dissatisfied users.

At Atomic, our desktop app developers write automated unit and system tests to ensure that your code is working properly. After those checks, our in-house exploratory testers run extensive tests to make sure every piece of the desktop app is running smoothly.


At Atomic, we specialize in rewriting and improving legacy apps.

Maybe your app is out-of-date or you’d like to add new features. Our developers and designers will help create a modern, user-friendly desktop experience that solves your problems.

We plan app transitions carefully using an Agile methodology, which means less downtime for your app. Our team takes time to understand your existing app before jumping into any project.

Desktop applications fill an important niche for many of our clients. We help our customers create fantastic user experiences on the desktop by combining human-centered design practices with modern, cross-platform tooling (e.g., Electron, .NET technologies) whenever possible.

Desktop Apps: Atomic's Best Practices

A desktop app provides the security and power that your business needs. Whether you need an ERP system that connects to a database or an internal hands-on training tool, a desktop application can get it done—all offline.

When we work with firms modernizing their internal tools, we first cultivate a deep understanding of the business, data, and how it’s used. Then we create a secure, easy-to-use tool that integrates with other data sources and enterprise systems they rely on. And we help prepare to support it going forward.
