Our core expertise lies in creating advanced web sites or web applications. These are complex, data driven sites usually with bespoke business logic or integrations. eg e-commerce, media delivery platform, sales management, training or knowledge management.
We work closely with our customers to properly understand the challenges they wish to overcome. Only by having a deep comprehension of their business and the desired outcome can we design and build the best system for them. However, we appreciate that things change and so our system designs enable us to make enhancements and upgrades without having to go back to the drawing board. See examples…
Working with organisations, we have seen a shift in the last few years away from static intranet and extranets towards collaborative platforms. These enable employees to create, comment and share documents with others in geographically different locations either within their company or external suppliers. Our TAG (Training & Guidance) and Xpin products are both collaborative platforms which address some of these requirements. TAG enables knowledge to be collated and shared across an organisation at which point Xpin allows commenting and document collaboration. High value manufacturers are using these platforms to improve their workforces access to detailed technical information and importantly have contact with the creators. This allows for knowledge to be shared and updated very quickly which ultimately improves their manufacturing reliability. See examples…
I’ve been advised we should have Cloud, SAAS, web 2.0, API’s, widgets, dongles and salted bubble sorts
We have several key electronic systems but they don’t talk to each other
We want to expose some data held on our internal system to our customers but don’t know where to start
Our IT department are doing a good job supporting staff but not the business digital demands
With decades of experience we know how to think about a project as well as build them. This usually means digging below the initial requirements to get to the business needs which in turn can lead us to a different outcome.
A discovery process occurs at the start of all our formal projects but is also something we offer as a separate process. Companies wishing to investigate a technical challenge without wanting to think about the development can hire our broad experience to get to grips with a problem.
We have been creating desktops apps for decades and delivered applications measure into the hundreds and shipped units into the millions. These have been created using Adobe Director, Adobe Flash, Adobe Flex and more recently Adobe AIR. AIR allows us to wrap a single application and deliver it to both Mac and PC with 100% cross platform feature support. See examples…
Can we use a cloud service and save money?
The answer is probably yes since there are such a wide range there is something to match almost any need.
Can you recommend a system or service that will solve this problem?
A common problem for businesses is lack of awareness of existing products. Considerable time and money can be saved where common requirements are needed and there are many products to suit that need.
We use a very standardised 4 step process which we apply to all projects. Following these steps enables us to stick to deadlines and budgets. We find that front-loading projects via a strong Discovery step pays dividends in the long run.
