Web Dev

We utilise industry standard web technologies to develop everything from template-driven customer websites with ecommerce functionality, to fully integrated and bespoke cross-platform products and solutions. Further enhancing interactivity, we can incorporate real-time Web3D content to build media rich environments, display data-driven dashboards, or visualise complex logic algorithms to guide users through their journey. Whatever your requirement, our programmers build intelligent, scalable solutions to suit all your business needs.

App Dev

When a targeted solution is required, we adopt a more native approach. Our app development solutions interact with additional device functionality and hardware, augmenting content against environmental and user input to add that increased level of feedback. From interactive marketing material that creates interest at exhibitions, to detailed simulations and dashboards for inspection and review, we create bespoke applications that engage, inform and support. Working with your subject matter experts we deliver interactive content as part of a blended approach to brand, product, and service familiarisation.

Immersive

Whether augmenting objects and media into our everyday lives with Augmented Reality (AR) or creating fully immersive digital environments with Virtual Reality (VR), we utilise the latest technology to create compelling XR content for marketing and operational support applications. With our accessible and cost-effective solutions, users can visualise complex data or explore impressive virtual worlds using hand tracking and gesture control technologies. We also incorporate gamification techniques, when required, to further engage audiences and build understanding. Augmented Reality (AR) involves adding virtual layers into a user's real-world environment. Virtual Reality (VR) is a completely immersive experience that replaces a real-life environment with a simulated one.

Data

Data is everywhere. It enables companies to understand their customer and product lifecycles, make informed decisions, and address business problems that would have been challenging to tackle before. We offer a full data analytics service to help you compile, cleanse, understand and make the most of your unstructured data for use in our digital solutions. Alongside assistance with data collection, we help interrogate and utilise your information for progression – delivering operational and strategic opportunities across industrial and other sectors.

IoT

We employ IoT technologies and unstructured data lake solutions to provide edge or cloud connected platforms that receive, store, and analyse data. Our systems can monitor, evaluate, and optimise on-demand or sandbox scenarios for future implementation – improving systems and personnel efficiency. We can support companies who wish to retrofit sensors to legacy hardware in order to collect, and make the most of, available machine data. Industries can benefit from smarter factories and real-time data dashboard access for modernised production, processes and maintenance, and operational opportunities.
