Where We Specialise
We're experienced at building and maintaining digital services for small and medium businesses who can't necessarily afford to hire their own full-time developers. Our team can:
- Provide flexible pay-as-you-go development
- Help you scope and design new digital projects
- Advise you on technology and best practice
- Train your staff to manage their own digital content
We've an academic background in user experience and interaction design that is rooted in cutting-edge research. We'll support you to develop digital services which:
- Are accessible and easily understood by users
- Meet your legal obligations
- Remain robust in a climate of rapidly emerging technology and legislation
A Service Optimised Around Your Needs
We take a methodical approach to design, helping our clients to understand their stakeholders and develop solutions that will meet their needs.
Whatever the scope of your project - whether it requires website hosting or staff training - we'll guide you through decisions to deliver a service bespoke to your requirements and budget.
Addressing the Right Problems
Successful projects begin with developing a sound understanding on the challenges you're trying to solve.
We draw on our expertise in user-centred research to help you analyse stakeholders, validate your ideas, and design effective solutions.
Good design happens when there's a strong rapport between client and developer, discussing ideas and developing them through an iterative process.
Our team are also experienced at working on cross-institutional projects, so we'll comfortably adapt to whatever development scenario your project throws at us.
No Monthly Retainer
Some developers will charge a fixed-price monthly fee in exchange for ongoing support, but we consider this approach too rigid for most organisations.
We invoice clients on a 'pay-as-you-go' basis meaning you'll only pay for services we've actually delivered, giving you full control over your maintenance budget.
Let's Start a Conversation
Every project has unique requirements, so we're always happy to help you scope out what we think your project needs and plan a suitable budget.Contact us
