Are you listening? Are you analysing? Are you building a layer of intelligence above the data you collect? Big data can drive big business decisions. Let us show you how.
If we can dream it, we can build it, tweak it and make it successful!
First we meet, drink coffee, chat! Then we unpack a problem or idea and start the conceptualisation process. Using years of knowledge we guide the solution to meet expectations.
The concept process is wrapped up with mockups, which are then signed off and put in design. The idea/project starts to take life at this stage
Development and testing
Once design has been signed off we move straight into development. As we progress we test and improve our code to maintain the highest standard.
Once testing has been signed off we work with you the client to launch an impactful and disruptive product. All hands on deck for support from this point on.

Some of the cool facts about us
To infinity and beyond! We keep keeping on!
Boom! We got them!
We focus mainly on new technologies and platforms. We absolutely love developing in Swift and Java for iOS and Android respectively. We are fond of C# and .Net development. We love open source PHP, MYSQL and Linux. We have competent staff to take care of Java, Ruby on Rails, Python. Our front end design team excel in angular, bootstrap, Kube, Semantic-ui and Foundation.
HTML5 is a markup language used for structuring and presenting content on the World Wide Web. It is the fifth and current version of the HTML standard.
We use HTML5 for many of our games and funky apps. It is a great alternative to flash.
CSS is designed primarily to enable the separation of presentation and content, including aspects such as the layout, colors, and fonts. This separation can improve content accessibility, provide more flexibility and control in the specification of presentation characteristics, enable multiple HTML pages to share formatting by specifying the relevant CSS in a separate .css file, and reduce complexity and repetition in the structural content.
We use CSS3 to reduce development time, improve load time and performance and to adhere to a single design and development standard within our organisation.
Java is a general-purpose computer programming language that is concurrent, class-based, object-oriented, and specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is intended to let application developers "write once, run anywhere" (WORA), meaning that compiled Java code can run on all platforms that support Java without the need for recompilation
PHP is a server-side scripting language designed primarily for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language. We have commissioned dedicated Linux servers for all PHP projects

.NET Framework (pronounced dot net) is a software framework developed by Microsoft that runs primarily on Microsoft Windows. It includes a large class library named Framework Class Library (FCL) and provides language interoperability (each language can use code written in other languages) across several programming languages. We find it to be very robust and versatile. Many of our large projects run off .NET frameworks.
Each project is unique and based on the technical spec will require a specific database. We generally utilise MSSQL, MySQL, Mongo, Oracle, MariaDB, Sybase and PostgreSQL for our old-school financial clients.
