We're not your garden-variety geeks..
No glasses or pocket protectors here. Our philosophy is “look good, be good.” And when we’re not volunteering for Rotary International, The Homeless World Cup, or the Elgg Foundation, we’re doing haute stuff like this :
Web Platform Development
Our development methodology is iterative, incremental and highly responsive to change. Pair that with a team that combines strategy, production management, design and engineering -- and you have solutions that last.
Mobile Platform Development
Our team develops both native and hybrid mobile applications and works with all of the most popular frameworks, including: Ionic, Xamarin, PhoneGap, Sencha...
Complex Systems Integration
No application is an island. We understand that your application needs to communicate with external systems. If it has an API we’ve probably worked with it. If it doesn’t, we’ll write one.
Business Process Automation
One of our greatest passions involves identifying, optimizing and automating inefficient business processes. Rapid economic and technological change makes operational change a requirement.
UI / UX Design and Development
Style is important to us. When it’s a way of life it becomes truly timeless. Our solutions meet our clients’ current and future needs. We call it “Design Sustainability” and it’s always in fashion.
Need help with your own team? Our technologists can join your team in as agile consultants to assist you with team building, scrum management, product management and tech strategy.
