We’ve been designing user centred websites and complex online apps for almost 20 years. We are Umbraco partners, and our tech team are Microsoft and Umbraco certified developers.
Successful projects are easy enough to deliver by well organised and experienced project managers and teams but successful products and services are designed around the needs of users. Our user experience and user interface design processes incorporate user research and user testing and we are the lead agency for Skills Development Scotland in providing UX and UI services.
Wireframe and design prototypes
Wireframing and prototyping is a key part of designing and developing successful websites, products and services. They allow us to rapidly prototype, test and sense check our solutions with end users and key stakeholders to make sure the websites and apps we are making are fit for purpose and effective.
Websites and web apps
We’ve honed our skills in the design and development of complex and bespoke websites and online applications and we ensure they are user-focussed and goal orientated. Our design and development standards are high and we are one of the first agencies to have delivered a website audited by the Scottish Government against the 22 Digital First Service Standards.
Umbraco CMS development
Our in-house tech team are Microsoft and Umbraco certified engineers. We're an Umbraco registered partner and have specialised exclusively in Umbraco for over 10 years. The websites and online applications we make are based on our flexible framework and base build that has evolved over many years. It is designed to be as flexible and as usable as possible to give you complete confidence, and put you in the driving seat of your website structure and content.
API development and integrations
Our website and software development team have integrated with many third party libraries and APIs ranging from Google Maps and social media network integrations to bespoke integrations or APIs we’ve created ourselves. Our integrations have resulted in helping thousands of students apply for college, or helping businesses get the support they need in the highlands and islands, through to designing tools to help teachers improve their leadership skills.
Booking systems and eCommerce
We've integrated with booking engines like Rezdy and Checkfront and we've worked with numerous eCommerce platforms including Shopify and Ucommerce and integrated with the most popular payment gateways including SagePay and Stripe to support our clients bookings and sales and to support donations for important charities.
