Our Services

Web Platforms

It's all about the platform. Whether you're building a stand-alone Web App or have both a Web and Mobile App strategy, the platform is where it all happens.

The architecture of your web platform is crucial. Each client is assigned a CTO and an architect, each with at least 20 years experience designing, building and deploying systems.

We've done it all before and will ensure that you get a scalable and flexible web platform that can grow as your business does.

App Development

A Mobile App strategy is a must for most if not all companies. We start with objectives and requirements, then use our deep experience in environments for native iOS (Objective-C and Swift) and native Android (Java)to design and develop brilliant products.

Our Mobile App Development specialists will help you understand how your idea can be best delivered on the key mobile app stores (Apple App Store and Google Play Store). They will deliver you weekly versions directly to your own devices so that you can engage directly in the process of building and iterating on your app.

Software Design & Prototyping

Software design is as much a science these days as an art. The design and usability of your product (UX / User Experience) is tied to your brand and product offering. We will wireframe working prototypes that you can experience from very early in the project.

This process helps tease out nuances and details in business rules and also feeds directly into the architecture and design of your Web Application (Platform) and APIs.

Often clients will use the output from our Software Design & Prototyping service to enable them to create RFPs / Tenders that are sent to software companies for quotation.

Crowdsourced QA

Our crowdtests are fully integrated into our Web and Mobile Development engineering process. We also offer this as a standalone service so that you can call upon the skill and insight of thousands of testing professionals, as easily as you’d hail a ride.

We believe crowdtests should be simple, scalable, and flexible. Just choose the objective for your test, tell us what devices and versions of operating systems you need. You don't need detailed test plans - plain English instructions are usually sufficient.

Test results usually start coming in 12 hours after the test cycle is started and each bug is accompanied with detailed steps to reproduce and a video so that you can quickly diagnose the problem.

Bugs can be pushed directly into your JIRA platform so your web and app developers can quickly see which bugs to prioritise and fix.

Project Rescues

Is your software project going pear shaped? Unfortunately we see too many customers come to us because their dream of a shiny new Web Platform or Mobile App has turned into a swamp of feature compromises, budget overruns and arguments with outsourced software companies.

We combine our CTOs, Architects, and Engineers to quickly identify the underlying problems and bottlenecks. We help you understand exactly where the problems reside and whether there has been any impact on the underlying architecture of your project. We will advise you on your options to get things back on track and then help you implement the rescue plan.

CTO as A Service

As your business evolves, your tech leadership needs evolve. Sometimes you need someone to lead the architecture and engineering delivery and at others you need someone who can sit with you as you pitch and negotiate with enterprise customers.

Each situation requires a different suite of competencies and skills.

We provide Board level strategy and consulting services right across to hard core engineering leaders for technology-driven companies of all sizes and stages of expansion.

We have particular expertise in guiding technology growth companies through their business development cycle, from IP initiatives to fund-raising preparation, product architecture and development, go-to-market strategies and team recruitment and re-organisation.

Pro Bono

We often come across early stage businesses and social enterprises that we just love the founding team and their work. As a result we just can't help ourselves and we take some of them under our wing to help and guide them.

Initially, this can be just giving some but often advice turns into hands-on help. Another way we help these worthy businesses is whenever we have some spare cycles in our team we try to apply them to these teams on a pro-bono basis.

If you think you've got something that we might find interesting and need some help, drop us a line and we'll see what we can do !
