Technical Due Diligence

Arizona sunset from our office roof

Aricosa provides complete technical reviews for organizations considering investing, merging or acquiring another. Our reports are focused on the technical components and staff requirements of web applications, desktop software, internal systems and database systems. Avoid missed deadlines and legal troubles by having a complete picture of what you are getting into.

Web Application Development

Developing custom web applications and open source solutions since 1996. Everything from e-commerce and server migration, to user-based communities and search engines. Aricosa’s network of independent analysts, developers and designers allows us to assemble a team that’s perfect for your project.

Location-based Search Engines

You want people to find multiple locations for a product or service you or your industry specializes in: we make sure that happens. Fast. Its not enough to just provide a listing of locations these days. People will use your service more frequently if they can filter and customize search results to their personal preferences.

Telephony / Voice Application Development

In the dark ages, telephone systems required investing in hardware, wrestling with arcane protocols and paying large monthly fees for leased communication lines. Today it’s all about telephony in the cloud: virtual IVR and PBX are now part of our web developers’ toolbox. We have developed everything from simple call management system to voice automated polling systems. Our experience in web development dovetails perfectly with both voice and SMS (text messaging) systems.

Content Management Systems

Regardless of the size of the organization, the benefits of a content management system (CMS) are far reaching. Aricosa has been building and installing both custom and open source CMS solutions for over 10 years. The days of paying for web site maintenance to add content, images and press releases are over.


Mission and Values

Aricosa is a consultancy specializing in the right technical solutions. Our goal is to implement systems that people actually want to use and enjoy interacting with. Although the main focus is technology, our commitment to quality starts with customer service.

Originally founded in 1999 by Jason Ayers as Ovum Design & Development, the Phoenix-based company started as a design studio with an emphasis on interactive media and usability. After the first year of business, it was evident there was a demand for more complex programming in web applications. Ayers hired and contracted several programmers to compliment the existing creative services. Since 2003, the primary operation of the business has moved to web development, software architecture and database integration.

Several client engagements required the complete overhaul of their legacy systems, accounting and proprietary software in order to work with the web. This led to us offering technical due diligence services, to help gain peace of mind towards a successful merger or acquisition.


Our team loves all things technology. During the week you’ll find us knee-deep in databases and code. On the weekends we’re building portable solar energy projects, exploring art and photography and figuring out how to replace our cars with bicycles. We’re a smart bunch, but we pride ourselves more on communicating with our customers. It’s the problem we’re solving: technology should not get in the way.
