About Us

kachihro was established in 2015, located in Melbourne to service customers in the local market, as well as Sydney and Hobart.

We have always had a pride-in-our-work, with a care factor second to none. This extends from program code, to documentation, as well as participating in project teams, and workshops, or delivering training courses.

Of course, it's the outcomes that are the reason for any software or custom business software. And so, we talk with all levels of management and the user base to define the requirements and objectives for any solution.

It's then into the application design and architecture, as well as systems integration, and configuration - followed by migration, support, documentation, change management, and anything else that is required of a successful software project.

What We Do

We have worked extensively with many SharePoint platforms over the years, beginning with SharePoint 2003, and then 2007, 2010 and 2013, and now up to Office 365.

Members of kachihro are also involved in the local user group community (O365 meetup + conferences), and have previously been awarded as Microsoft MVP (2010-11).

ASP.NET and C# development, as well as modern web frameworks such as AngularJS and jQuery, and database design & implementation with SQL Server.

With the Microsoft cloud stack of tools, we have implemented a number of Azure and Office365 solutions, through integrations and modern cloud-based application architectures, as well as PowerShell.
Through the use of SharePoint, and products such as K2 and Nintex, we have developed a deep skillset related to business processes, with InfoPath and also K2 SmartForms.

Our founder Chris O'Connor was an author of the 'Professional K2 BlackPearl' reference book from Wrox, and was awarded as a K2 Insider waay back in 2009.
Following on from the deep application knowledge of SharePoint, we have expertise with infrastructure and platform services, including PowerShell, and configurations of Service Apps, Search, upgrades, migrations and so forth.

We have developed a SharePoint health check service, highlighting any server or farm issues - see our PRODUCTS page for more information on SPFarmHard.
With the current buzz around cloud-first and mobile-first, we have been assisting companies to provide enterprise apps on mobile phones and tablets, using backend data sources such as SAP, SharePoint and SQL Server.

The Sitrion ONE product allows for the easy development of Micro-Apps and Cards to meet the needs of the modern mobile intranet. This fits nicely into our time-poor + busy lifestyle and the 'always on' mobile phone revolution.
As organisations grow in number, it's difficult to maintain a current set of people data within Active Directory. Having incorrect data can waste time for employee communications, as well as cause problems for business process automation.

We are delighted to be a launch partner for Hyperfish, which aims to alleviate these data inconsistencies and stale people data, through clever analysis tools and 'bots' to request information from staff.
