What we do
We work with our customers to create great software that is easy to use, looks cool, and is also on time. Our highly experienced team love to create web sites, e-learning systems, mobile apps and just about any other type of system you could think of. Have a look at how we work below or see what some of our customers say about us.
Although we are based in the North West of England we have clients throughout the UK and partnerships with a number of suppliers abroad. The company was set up in 2009 to redevelop the DiabetesE Self Assessment system for Connecting for Health and BT. Since then we have grown rapidly and branched out into other areas.
Working with You
Our greatest strength is being able to take what can initially be a very vague idea from a customer to a full working system. We work with our customers at every step of the way to ensure that their initial ideas are turned into a solution that works for them. Nearly all of our new work is generated by existing customer referral.
