Transforming your digital world
We help ambitious businesses and entrepreneurs to develop innovative online products and services. We're problem solvers, we strive to create best in class online solutions to improve both marketing effort and operational efficiency.
Digital Transformation Consultancy
Our approach to digital transformation begins with your customers. We apply user-centric thinking to help you define every touch-point – from customer facing experiences such as mobile apps and web portals – through to the back-office systems that make it happen, all whilst helping you to collate the data you need to measure and plan ahead.
We are experienced not only with design and technology, but like you we possess inquisitive and entrepreneurial minds. Whether your business transformation challenge is marketing led, about operational efficiency, or you want to disrupt a market with an innovative digital product, we can help you define your goals, processes and markets, to establish the most appropriate technical approach.
If you need help developing a digital product business plan, or advice on connecting hardware to the web (IoT), or have a business intelligence (big data) or integration challenge, we can help guide you. As an independent digital technology company we are not tied to any product or solution.
Our neutral and technology agnostic view of the landscape provides a truly unbiased and informed opinion that can help you develop the best solution. Whether you are a .com startup or an established and ambitious business who wish to disrupt markets or develop better online products, then we’d love to speak to you.
Architecture & Rapid Prototyping
Our architecture phase starts with requirements capture and quickly moves into fast paced workshops and rapid prototyping, allowing everyone to get involved in the process. The architecture phase captures requirements, explores commercial and technological possibilities and allows us to create the appropriate solution. Our process is fast, agile and gets all stakeholders excited about the possibilities.
Following initial workshops we quickly begin to create interactive prototypes for websites, mobile apps, ecommerce, IoT and web applications, allowing customers to realise their visions very quickly. Our collaborative workshops get customers excited about the possibilities, whilst our HotSpot prototypes rapidly visualise what your application will look like. This approach allows customers to engage with investors or the senior team with a tangible asset before a line of code is written. Following this phase we break the modules down into feature sets so we can provide accurate costs and outline the technical infrastructure.
Our process is the perfect balance between traditional waterfall and modern agile methodology. Clients love our approach as it keeps deliverables, costs and quality in check and stakeholders in control. If you’d like more information on our process please get in-touch.
Creative & Functional Design
We engineer creative and intelligent designs that focus on usability, functionality and accessibility, as well as being visually striking. It may seem obvious, but the easier and more useful your site or app is, the more likely it will be a success. Aspiring to beauty in design is admirable, but it doesn’t guarantee usability, nor is it a product or marketing strategy.
As a digital agency and software house hybrid our team have the expertise needed to create intuitive user experiences (and beautiful graphical user interfaces) that sell products and streamline applications. Our design team possess skills in brand development and UX, having all worked at a high level throughout their careers in both traditional agency roles and into digital user experience. So if you need help developing a new brand, or translating an existing brand into a digital environment, we can help make sure it’s not only on brand, but on point for your customers.

Whether you want to develop a new product or enhance your internal software, we provide solutions that make a big difference to your business and help you stay ahead of the competition through the use of modern web based technologies.

Responsive Website Development
Your website is your voice to the world, so wouldn’t it be great if it gave your customers a true feel for what you do, stood you apart and made best use of web technology?
