Practices

Overview

Technical innovation drives successful engagements, and those engagements inform the work we do. We are technologists, visual designers, business strategists, and above all, innovators. We have spent more than a decade creating leading-edge digital solutions and use that experience to create a unified, elegant solution that meets your strategies and puts your users first.

Solutions Strategy

Whether you need help with a technology solution to break bottlenecks, want to reach customers via mobile ads, or would like to bring your web-based services to customers’ iPhones, iPads and Android devices, you start with a strategy. We help you create one that takes your challenges, opportunities, resources, users, and competition into account—and keeps you flexible enough to address change.

User Experience

User Experience is the full measurement of our human participation with technology. To this end, it’s our job as user experience design professionals to understand users’ needs, simplify complexity and offer them the ideal user experience across devices. Our User Experience practice encompasses the breadth of UX disciplines, from user research and testing through visual design, interaction design, and prototyping.

Technology

Known as an industry leader in technology services, our technology solutions power the experiences that engage customers across systems, platforms and devices. We’ve solved some of the toughest challenges, creating game-changing web and mobile applications, powerful enterprise portals and transforming legacy technologies into profitable productivity centers.

Delivery Management

Delivery Management orchestrates how all our practices work together—and how we work with clients. Our Delivery Managers are senior professionals that get involved in every step of every project we do, ensuring clear communication, advocating cross-practice innovation, and deftly managing your project with skills gained in account management, business analysis and quality assurance.

Offerings

We deliver deep digital solutions that meet your business goals, from better customer experience to improved efficiencies and even new revenue streams. While we have expertise in four practice areas, there are no silos here—many of our UX team members are technologists, our developers have a high regard for the value of design, and all our team members deliver against your business strategy.
