What we do

We create apps in a way that combines thinking, doing, measuring and then building on what works.

We believe that a mobile app succeeds when it's based on a clear strategy that everyone agrees with. And when it's as an iterative, ongoing program rather than a build-and-pray affair.

That's why we ask clients to commit to 6-12 month product roadmap rather than a one-shot release.

Our projects tend to fit one of these categories.

Disruptors

We work with established industry leaders wanting to execute great ideas quickly. Who believe mobile will change their industry, and see potential for double digit increase in profits. We work with those who want a savvy tech partner who will help them explore ideas, challenge their assumptions and go the distance with their mobile product.

Startups

Startups need to minimise risk and learn as much as possible as quickly as possible. We've developed a service that helps them test ideas and take them to market. Because we have skills in web, databases and research, we have the chops to build ideas quickly.

Enterprises

Large corporations are ripe for modernisation. They're shaving millions off their operating costs through clever use of mobile. We are an enterprise app developer. Talk to us about security, integrations, web portals and big data. We offer predictable delivery and sensible support packages.

Emerging Trends

Action requires knowledge. So we watch the changing industry and keep you updated with relevant insights to help you identify your best next steps

Express Prototyping

Why blow £50K on an app that might not work? Prototyping and concept validation is the fastest, least-risk route to market with your mobile app

App Development

We're finely tuned to create great apps. We do planning, UX, Windows, Android, iOS, QA, integration and web

Longevity

Successful projects last years. Our clients benefit from fast progress, responsive support and proactive maintenance
