We create digital products
to improve people's lives.

Join the team... 

Build amazing things, change the world.

A better approach to work, to life...
and social impact.

We are a small team of digital engineers and strategic thinkers. Our ethos is based on years of experience using, creating and believing in amazing digital technology.

After two decades accelerating the fortunes of scores of other businesses, we are turning our focus to our own platforms.

We are building a company with a flexible approach to work and which balances office life with family life. It provides us the freedom to build awesome digital products, pool ideas and incubate the dreams we believe to be worthwhile.

We also continue to collaborate with selected clients where we believe we can help to maximise their social impact.

Deep Blue Sky's expertise was essential in guiding us through our first steps into the digital space and their ongoing development of the SMILE system is integral to the rapid growth of our fund management practice.

Commission us to build your dreams...

We occasionally accept commissions from people in whom we believe.

Incubating Start-Ups

We love great ideas so we work with a few start-ups to realise their vision.

Our step-by-step approach is ideal for start-ups because it provides the flexibility new companies need. They get the benefit of our experience and access to a whole digital team for an affordable monthly investment.

Growing Charities & SMEs

Many of our clients are charities or SMEs with a focus on positive social impact.

We work together to develop software that makes organisations more efficient. We increase their impact, and financial efficiency by improving customer experience, reducing their overheads and streamlining day-to-day operations.

Government & Enterprise

Our rapid prototyping of great ideas can change the course of big organisations.

Over the years we've helped many large organisations modernise their processes.

Today we are helping governments across Europe improve the way they manage their finances and supply chains.
