Apps

When it comes to web and mobile apps, if you bring us a concept we’ll bring it to life. We use our specialist knowledge and professional insight to create distinct, digital products people love. The combination of technological prowess, constant innovation and a relentless focus on user experience all add up to bespoke applications that work for you.

Scoping

It all starts with an idea. Maybe you want to improve an existing process, create an entirely new business or change the way something works. We’ll take your initial thoughts and learn everything we can about your goals and the purpose behind them. Once we fully comprehend your needs, we’ll present our suggestions via video interviews, flow diagrams and interactive charts. It’s the first exciting step to discovering what your app can be and how it needs to be built.

Prototyping

Working prototypes help everyone grasp how your finished application will eventually function. Operating within an agile system, we mock up and build the most difficult parts first.
Then we rigorously test our assumptions and push the technology to the limit, giving us a first taste of real-world context and real-time experience. Tackling the most complicated problems early on, we quickly establish feasibility – in turn, this reduces your level of risk and prevents delays.

Wireframes

Every user matters. That’s why we put together incredibly detailed, high fidelity wireframes.
We build them with a view to optimising flow right across the app, providing a level of interaction that’s both seamless and rewarding. This iterative wireframe stage helps us quickly decide how your app fits together, taking all the right steps towards the best possible information architecture and interaction design.

Technical Specification

Once your layouts are finalised we’ll produce a functional specification that charts precisely how the application will work end-to-end. From browser support to API integration, everything is carefully documented and agreed in advance, helping you understand your investment from all angles. It also contains all the relevant details for our development team, ensuring everyone involved is ‘singing from the same song sheet’.

User Interface Design

You want your audience to experience something enjoyable, and so do we. Our designers believe form and function should work together in harmony to produce a user interface that anticipates people’s needs and helps them achieve their goals. We respect digital interfaces and micro interactions just as much as visual design and information architecture. Ultimately, this leads to an application that’s as intuitive and simple to use as it is beautiful.

Development

Our front-end and back-end development teams work together to build your app using the very latest technology. Using the designs we’ve established as a blueprint, they code in tandem to make the carefully mapped user experiences a reality. Mobile or desktop, we have the in-house expertise to make sleek, high-end commercial applications with seamless user journeys and gorgeous interactions.

Quality Assurance

We quality check your app at every stage. Our workflow operates across local and QA environments – we follow strict deployment and code review processes that include hotfixes and pull requests. Specialised tools and automated testing scripts highlight syntax errors and check features. Browser tests, security audits and code linting are also performed on our entire stack to ensure efficient, robust and scalable applications are delivered every time. Working as a hive mind, we flag up and fix every bug, glitch and typo to ensure your app is the very best it can be.

Launch

Building an application from scratch is one thing, but successfully releasing it is another. Launching an app requires careful monitoring and attention, especially as real users are quick to jump on board. It needs to work perfectly from day one, then maintain the same level of performance throughout, even if it has thousands of concurrent users. We’ve got you covered though – our Service Level Agreements provide complete peace of mind. We can also put together a custom marketing strategy to maximise the reach of your app.
