We’ve been tasked with integrating complex client technical ecosystems into multi-purpose apps and portals. We’ve acquired user generated content via social media and restructured it to deliver added value to our clients. We’ve engineered collaborative portals and product systems, using the latest technology to integrate with legacy, bespoke and enterprise systems.
When integration work requires working with third party or client teams we do it with professionalism, respect and tenacity. We understand the intricacies of delicate client systems and the need for continuity of service and reduction in duplication.
Mobile & apps
Whether it’s a site that is designed to respond to various devices or a custom mobile app solution, we have experience across the board.
Responsive design is a natural part of our web development projects. We also ensure our websites and apps don’t just scale to the mobile device but that the content and experience design actually works and engages with the specific audience. Sometimes this means we are creating adaptable interfaces that are customised to the viewport.
We author the new breed of apps with one code base which is published to multiple platforms. We integrate with APIs and web services and are experienced with penetration testing and code security auditing.
We’ve developed custom apps to support websites, integrated with third party apps and worked with clients to build APIs or integrate their APIs across secure networks.
OutSystems is a platform which allows us to rapidly develop applications. We’ve been accepted as an OutSystems enterprise developer, creating solutions for Australia and the Asia Pacific region.
OutSystems enables our experience design team to engineer bespoke applications.
Web app development
Our web apps leverage our strategy, design and technical skills.
We stay abreast of the rapid shifts in technology and customer behaviour by adapting our tech stack to ensure we are delivering fit-for-purpose solutions to our clients. In fact, at times we have become part of the rapid shift by providing ground-breaking solutions that have more than doubled our clients productivity.
We’ve built custom WordPress plugins, integrated with complex medical and education platforms and developed learning management systems and research data repositories.
We digitised the iconic Jacaranda Atlas and developed a bespoke medical software as a service app for Sonic Healthcare which has also been delivered as a hybrid app (Android & iOS). Our websites are no longer brochureware but rather apps that push and pull data to create an experience that benefits the end user and the business we are working for.

We support a variety of open source systems such as WordPress, Drupal and Magento and have developed and supported bespoke solutions.
WordPress has been a staple of our content management repertoire for many years with our level of sophistication including theme building, custom integrations and plugin development. We’ve built plugins to map complex taxonomies and produced middleware between websites and apps over a secure framework.
