“Making the simple complicated is commonplace;
making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity”
Charles Mingus, Jazz Musician
We deliver digital solutions on behalf of some of the UK’s leading agencies and for some of the world’s most successful companies. Their needs are often complex but we try to ensure that our solutions are not.
‘Keep it simple’ is our mantra which is why we like the Charles Mingus quote and whilst most people would regard us as techies we think Charles would admire our creativity.
The simple facts:
- Formed in 1999
- Umbraco Gold Partner
- ASP.NET, MVC, WebAPI
- Delivering agile responsive design, development and systems integration
- ITIL driven Umbraco hosting on Amazon AWS, Umbraco as a Service and Azure
“The central enemy of reliability is complexity”
Geer et al., 2003
A reliable partner
Overly complex solutions are usually a sign of a lack of understanding of the need, poor technical design or poor developer skills. And complexity causes problems, effects reliability and has significant cost implications.
Whether we are creating a bespoke, standalone web site or developing an application for integration with an enterprise level legacy system we strive to deliver solutions that are simple, efficient, robust, future proof and which address the business need. All delivered with pixel perfect precision.READ MORE CONTACT US NOW
“There is no such thing as an IT project, only a business project”
It’s often quoted and we don’t know who said it first, but we agree. Our view is that technologists can get in the way of the successful application of technology. Technologists often get too excited about what a technology can do rather than the specific benefit it can bring to a particular business and the result is the sub optimal use of that technology.
That is why our team includes experts in marketing, brand development, consumer behavior, innovation, growth and commercial strategy. We do not offer any of those disciplines as a service in their own right. We apply those disciplines to better understand our client’s businesses and business needs. We can then deliver solutions that are optimal, not sub optimal.READ MORE CONTACT US NOW
If you want analogies for who we are, we are the battery in the Duracell bunny or, we are the intel processor inside your PC. Why? Because we are the technical resource behind many leading agencies, the go-to guys when they have a problem. When an LMS development for a FTSE100 pharmaceutical company was going wrong the agency turned to us to sort it out. When multiple developments and updates of the compliance database of an international financial services company finally caused it to become unstable and unreliable we were called in by the agency to fix the problems and create a coherent development strategy that would avoid its recurrence.
Our expertise is what enables many agencies to deliver the solutions they develop for their clients although we do work directly with end users as well.CONTACT US NOW
As far as we are concerned our Umbraco Gold Partner status and multiple certifications are just table stakes; they simply prove our commitment to and expertise in Umbraco. Anyone who does not make such a commitment is not a serious player. And, whilst Umbraco is our focus our expertise in multiple programing languages and in enterprise level systems means that, technically, we are equipped to deliver robust digital solutions.
