Rio Software can say with confidence that we focus on your business, because almost all of our clients are HVAC/R manufacturers. The founder of Rio Software, Colin Sarsfield, has been developing HVAC/R software since 1995. Our entire staff is dedicated to understanding the industry and our clients’ products. This focus allows us to improve quality, reduce cost, and provide rapid turnaround.

Standards of Quality

We work hard to ensure that all software produced exceeds the standards of quality in our industry, while still controlling cost. Automated testing suites, revision auditing, and systematic manual testing are all used toward this goal.

Fixed-price Bids

Our focus also enables us to produce more accurate estimates. Our confidence in these estimates is such that we are willing to complete many jobs on a fixed price basis. This can allow us to assume estimation related risk for your company, and simplify the task of budgeting.

Rapid Turnaround

We know what it takes to successfully target deadlines for your software release. From project inception, scheduling requirements are taken into consideration. A project schedule is developed that balances your deadlines against feature requirements. We then work to this schedule with your targets in mind. In addition, pre-built and tested components are used to assemble typical HVAC/R programs quickly.
