Origin Story

Darklake Developments began alongside a leading business software provider in the South West of England. Due to the nature of client's company structures and processes it was soon recognised that standard business software was not always sufficient to run a business to it's maximum efficiency.

Darklake Developments was formed to provide software for all business sectors throughout the UK, from simple add-on modules to comprehensive bespoke packages where a "vanilla offering" wasn't sufficient. Most of the software integrates seamlessly with Pegasus and Sage, or can stand-alone or integrate with other bespoke solutions.

In January 2024, the software licences, intellectual property (IPR) and the development team from Darklake Developments became part of Minster Micro Computers Limited. 

Minster already provide bespoke products and solutions for our client's, so acquiring the Darklake product portfolio and bringing the existing team into our own aligned perfectly.

The Darklake product portfolio strengthens Minster's current offering, and has expanded our development team to allow us to create and adapt even more innovative solutions.
