What makes us different

How we deliver long-lasting, data-driven, user-centred change.

Seamless connections

We take a multidisciplinary approach that combines strategic consultancy with user-centred design, technology and delivery.

We don't have hard divisions between teams; our people collaborate and share ideas freely. When we develop strategies we do so with actionable, pragmatic roadmaps for delivery. We prefer proof of concepts to PowerPoints and projections.

That kind of seamless collaboration lets us take a national heritage digital estate all the way from digital strategy, to discovery to live - building both an Umbraco ecosystem and a Microsoft Sharepoint intranet. It lets us turn around a flexible, dynamic website for the largest cycling event ever in a massively compressed timeframe.

Digital + data

We draw on our deep expertise to tackle both complex digital and data and AI challenges. ​

Transforming the way organisations harness the full potential of their data can massively impact the digital services they provide. We use our digital transformation skills to create digital services that serve and integrate data in intelligent ways.

As a Microsoft Solutions Partner, we use our expertise in developing data platforms to help reshape data management and lay the groundwork for automation. Whether that's building a data pipeline to make sense of huge volumes of census data or using machine learning models to identify patients at highest risk of adverse events.

"What sets us apart? We have the highest level of technical knowledge mixed with a zero-ego attitude."

Scalable but flexible

We can solve large-scale, complex problems with speed and agility.

We offer a flexible and tailored delivery model, based on the specific needs of our clients, and we can scale our approach seamlessly. We can offer the sort of agility you don't usually get on big, complex programmes and projects.

It means we can drive delivery of enhancements and integrations in large government departments as Agile Delivery partners. It means we can collaborate with multiple organisations to build a national COVID-19 notification system that could scale and respond to evolving requirements.

Properly positive impact

We genuinely want our work to have a positive impact on our clients, their users, our people and on society.

We don't just pay lip service to inclusion and sustainability. We put accessibility at the heart of all the digital solutions we produce. We consider the positive potential for what we deliver. Whether that's making life easier for people applying for planning permission or helping individuals and communities get the most out of their city.

"We create impactful change for the people who are actually using the services and products we build."

National reach, local heritage

We work across the UK, having built on our Edinburgh base and heritage. With clients and staff across the country, we're perfectly positioned for UK-wide impact.

Edinburgh is one of the UK’s leading cities for innovation, whilst offering lower overheads than those of London-based consultancies. It means we can offer properly national reach, with both the clients we work with and the talent we can attract.

Our unique position means we can deliver both local citizen-led design and far-reaching transformation to international aid data. We're also bringing in the next generation of brilliant minds through our links with local universities.
