Our Process

It's vital our development process ensures minimised time to the market whilst adhering to both specifications and budget. Our approach to mobile app development and website development is systematic and organised.

Design Consultancy

The first stage of the development process is defining the scope, theme and requirements of your project. Our consultation process enables us to clearly understand and define your goals. We will discuss your target audience, the scope and timeline of the project. We also need to clarify the responsibilities and features as well as define the project requirements and specifications. This can take place via video chat or a face to face meeting.

Structured Planning

This is the step where we help develop a blueprint for the app. We add value by offering ideas on how to improve and refine your original concept and turn it into an engaging application that users depend on. The key activities in this phase are research, feature recommendations, defining app architecture and the development of a creative strategy and content online. Once we’ve defined all the detail, we can get to work on the fun part; developing a creative graphic interface that is appealing, engaging and intuitive to use.

Start Building

Excitement runs high as our development team work closely with our creative team by building all the functionality and requirements within the interface. From log-in to feedback, all specs are coded into the app along with engaging animations and graphics to enhance the user experience. Each project is assigned a dedicated project manager making sure the project is kept on time and standards are met.

Stress Testing

Comprehensive testing is deployed on the appropriate smartphone or tablet to ensure your app performs up to its specifications under a variety of conditions. All functionality, content and navigation is thoroughly checked before the application is delivered for approval. We also will deliver a Beta copy for review, to ensure it meets expectations.

Maintenance & Support

Aftercare and technical support is equally as important as the build. We've gained a knack over the years for increasing digital growth in your business. Think of us as your personal digital wingman.

UX & UI Design

We're brand savvy with focus on aesthetics and we don't deliver design by chance. Brand creation and logo design is part of our DNA. With our UX and UI design team, we ensures our apps and mobile websites are delivered with conviction, combining creative design with effective functionality.

Mobile Apps

Whether you're a startup or a corporate company we conduct our working relationship with trust and integrity.  Our studios are located in the heart of Belfast and London's digital hub.  Our mobile apps are coded from scratch, future proofing them for ongoing development. Working closely with our clients we develop for iOS and Android across smartphones and tablet devices. Our development team will suggest the latest trends and transitions so your app stands out from the rest. We want to see your app a success and we'll share our extensive knowledge and experience in order to obtain the best return of investment.

Route to Market

Maintaining tech support and regular contact to evolve the App. Promotion and marketing strategies that get results on a global stage.

Software Development

Every great mobile app should have a software environment that can future proof things for our client's as they move forward into more expanding versions. Our software developers have the skill set to create custom content management systems and dashboards that allow each mobile app updates as and when, without having to connect with our support team. That peace of mind is invaluable to the success of each mobile app project.

Delivering across all major IOS & Android smartphone / tablet devices, we deliver a user-friendly and intuitive interface for eCommerce, CMS & CRM systems that our team build to specification.

We create animations for companies across the UK & Ireland

Short animations and animated explainers have become a trendy marketing tool to convey your message. We will look after the entire project for you by writing your script, drafting a storyboard, designing original illustrations, delivering a voice over and creating animation ready for web. Our clients have received high conversion rates when uploading their animations to their website and social media channels.
