    Super Agile


    We firmly believe that the Agile software methodology is the best approach for bespoke software. As a result we plan out user stories with the client to describe requirements, we build these in ‘sprints’ (usually two weeks), and have regular demos with the client. This means we are flexible on scope and able to hit tight deadlines.

    Beautiful User Experiences


    A functional but clunky piece of software can end up costing more in time than it saves. In addition, an ugly difficult to use interface can actually harm its effectiveness, as users give up on using it. We believe in form and function and so have in house UX designers who create delightful user experiences for all our bespoke software an apps.

    Robust and Secure Code


    We believe robust code can only come through robust and repeatable processes. As a result, we use source control to ensure accurate code tracking, Test Driven Development (TDD) to ensure all code is tested and Continuous Integration to ensure these tests are automatically run when code is committed. We use Continuous Deployment to automate the deployment process, which speeds up delivery and massively reduces configuration errors. With high level hacks occurring every week, it is vital to take security seriously. And we do. Our software meets the rigours of some of the most demanding compliance teams in the world.

    We have super smart developers with the latest tools and super powerful hardware. We use what is best for the project; .Net, Ruby, PHP, or Javascript (Angularjs, node.js, knockout), Objective-C or Unity. There is no tribalism here.

Let’s make something together.
