Discovering your user's needs
Delivering effective, intuitive and inclusive digital services starts with understanding your users needs. Our experienced team of researchers engage with your service users to help you clearly identify and understand their needs and behaviours.
We also evaluate your existing technology landscape and recommend the most cost-effective and efficient way to deliver a solution that maximises uptake and improves satisfaction.
User-centred design and development of critical applications
Backed with a deep understanding of your users’ needs, our design team translates user insight into workable design concepts, sketches and prototypes in our innovation labs.
We continuously validate and test these prototypes with real users, ensuring journeys and navigation are intuitive, easy-to-use and meet accessibility standards. This iterative process results in a working proof of concept that’s backed by an evidence base, providing confidence to move onto the development phase.
We have over 35 years’ experience developing secure business-critical applications. We use modern agile development approaches such as Continuous Integration, Test-Driven Development (TDD), Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD), pairing and mobbing to deliver web and mobile applications that lead to better business outcomes and higher adoption.
Working in an open and collaborative manner, we’re committed to forming cohesive teams with our customers. With our suite of proven digital software, we can utilise DevOps and continuous delivery techniques to place a working application in users’ hands as quickly and cost effectively as possible.
Quality and security are at the heart of our development process and our strong technical skills enable us to deliver scalable, secure, adaptable, cloud-native solutions that seamlessly integrate into your existing services and systems.
