During November 2022 the company changed its name to Unique Software Solutions Limited to reflect the full range of  its services as we have expanded over the previous 19 years of the company.

The original name which the Company had used since it was founded, Ischus, pronounced ISK-US, is a Greek word, whose meaning may be summarised by the phrase,

‘Ability in action‘

You might ask, ‘ability to do what?’.

The answer is that we are specialists in solving computer software and hardware problems. We design, develop, maintain and re-engineer software. Within this our main feature is our versatility.

This means that we are very good at solving problems. We can tackle software issues, write programs for you (small or large), handle data and databases and adapt and modify in-house programs for you.

We offer our versatility combined with our expertise.

To provide you with the flexibility you need.

We keep our costs, and yours, low by using well established, open source and free software tools where appropriate.

  • We have direct experience of understanding the issues and theoretical underpinning that hardware engineers build on and so the dialogue between them and us is efficient and unambiguous.
  • We are problem solvers with highly developed analytical skills and are particularly good in novel and complex situations
  • We have experience reaching back over 45 years and have intimate knowledge of computational hardware and peripherals at the component level, experience with a range of communication protocols and detailed understanding of the construction of operating systems and utility programs.
