We think and act like owners in everything we do
App & product development
Poorly architected software can prevent your product or service from succeeding. Time is wasted firefighting technical issues instead of focusing on the path ahead. As well as needing better software it's likely you also need to:
- Deliver a higher quality product on time
- Build strength in your technical team
- Invest your funds carefully to achieve the best outcomes
- Support sales ambitions for the product or service
Create a technical foundation
We have a solution. Our app and platform development team work with you to reach your milestones and goals. We bring decades of experience in developing apps, platforms and web interfaces, from minimum viable products (MVPs) to enterprise level. By working with you we leave your team with a strong technical foundation for growth.
How we help with app and platform development.
- Define the scope and objectives of your project
- Find the balance between scope, budget and timelines
- Identify risk and develop plans to address it early
- Implement continuous delivery automation from the beginning
- Design, build and deploy systems
- Deliver stable well designed architecture
- Transfer knowledge and skills to your team
Strengthen your technical team
Our work will help you through a particular challenge but also strengthen your technical team for the next phase of your journey. Your team will learn from the Threadable team and see best practice methodology, clear communications and objective thinking in practice. The Threadable team will:
- Bring expertise and knowledge to your project
- Transfer best practice and domain knowledge to your team
- Create efficiency and flexibility in your ways of working

One of the most enjoyable and educational experiences I have had in my career to date has been working alongside Threadable.
The Threadable Team Model
We believe innovation is a team sport
How we organise ourselves
A key reason for our track record of delivering solutions successfully for our customers is due to the manner in which we organise ourselves and engage with our customers team.
Our Team Model is based on the belief that the six key quality goals must be achieved in order for a project to be considered successful. These goals drive the blended team and define our team model. While it is true that the entire team is responsible for the project’s success, the team model associates the six quality goals with separate roles to ensure accountability and focus. These six quality goals are:
Satisfied Customers: Projects must meet the needs of customers and users in order to be successful. It is possible to meet budget and time goals but still be unsuccessful if customer needs have not been met.
Delivering the Solution within Project Constraints: A key goal for all teams is to deliver within project constraints. The fundamental constraints of any project include those of budget and schedule. Most projects measure success using “on time, on budget” metrics, but these vary significantly across industries and markets.
Build to Specification: The product scope & specification describes in detail the deliverables to be provided by the team to the customer. It is important for the team to deliver in accordance with this as accurately as possible because it represents an agreement between the team and the customer as to what will be built.
Approve for Release Only after all Product Quality Issues Are Identified and Addressed: All software is created with defects. A key goal is to ensure those defects are identified and addressed prior to releasing the product. Addressing can involve everything from fixing the defect in question to documenting work-around solutions. Delivering a known defect that has been addressed along with a work-around solution is preferable to delivering a product containing unidentified defects that may surprise the team and customer later.
Enhanced User Effectiveness: In order for a product to be successful, it must enhance the way that users work and perform. Delivering a product that is rich in features and content but is not usable by its designated user is considered a failure.
Smooth Deployment and Ongoing Operations: Often the need for a smooth deployment (upgrade) is overlooked. The users and customers perception of a deployment is carried over to the product itself, rightly or wrongly. For example, a faulty upgrade or installation process may lead users to assume that the application is similarly faulty, even when this may not be true. Consequently, the team must do more than simply deploy; it must strive for a smooth deployment and prepare for the support and management of the product. This can include ensuring that training, infrastructure, rollback plans and support are in place prior to deployment.
