About Side Software

We solve real manufacturing business problems using advanced software technologies validated by years of in-plant experience.

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
― Confucius

These words have inspired us since Jacob Ashcraft, our President, founded the company in 2006. We’re having such a good time, it’s sometimes hard to believe we get to do this for a living!

Jake’s ongoing vision is to provide useful, efficient solutions and services that bridge the gap between Systems Integrators’ automation services and their clients’ advanced technology needs.

Automation systems integrators provide essential services such as PLC programming, HMI development, electrical engineering, project management, and service and support. However, many SIs don’t specialize in software and web development and design. That’s where Side Software comes in.

Our years of end-user and automation systems integration experience enables us to see what’s missing from many automated manufacturing projects and installations: software solutions that help manufacturers become more efficient, productive, and profitable. We design, integrate, and implement web, client-server, cloud, mobile, and database systems that allow manufacturers to do just that.

Please check out our work on these pages. If you’re a Systems Integrator in need of software development resources, we’d love to work with you. If you’re a manufacturing company looking for the productivity increases that come from using advanced technology, we’re here for you, too.

Thanks for stopping by.
