Person

Driven by delighted users

You want your customers to be leaving positive reviews because they’ve had a great user experience, using your software. We put customers first.

We understand the impact good design can have on the sustainable success of a product. Which is why we employ a strong, experienced team of designers who are experts in their discipline. We have dedicated roles in user experience (UX) design, visual design, user interface (UI) design and user testing, to ensure that the overall experience is not simply functional but one that is a delight to use.

Our proven design and development process ensures that software solutions are built around solid understanding of the problems and motivations of your target users, and implemented features can be measurably shown to meet their needs.

Throughout your project we’ll involve you in making a product that is usable and enjoyable, sharing with you interactive prototypes you can try out within your organisation and test with your customers.

Support

Supported all the way

We all want happy customers, and we strive to deliver a high quality solution with a great user experience, a solid architecture that continues to perform under increased load, and one that is legally compliant.

And even if we haven’t written the code, we have the experience and confidence to take on legacy systems or failed software projects, and breathe new life into them.

We understand just how frustrating it is to be kept in the dark about the status of your project, so we make a promise to you that we will:

  • deliver a tested, quality and compliant solution
  • communicate frequently on progress and status
  • keep maintenance costs low
  • be available when you need support or advice

You shouldn’t ever have to be chasing any development partner for progress updates or deal with mounting support tickets from disgruntled customers. At every stage of your project we stay in regular contact with you, whether it’s to report on progress, or keep you up to date on any issues that may arise.
