We believe in creating what Clay Shirky called situated software – tools and systems that feel native to a particular context. Sometimes this can be done by integrating existing systems; sometimes it requires the freedom offered by pure custom development, and in this case we use a tried and tested agile development methodology to ensure our clients are involved in every stage of the process.
Best of breed platforms
We have deep technical skills in best-of-breed social platforms, and have integrated these products for our clients to produce smarter, simpler, social solutions that work for their users, rather than the other way round.
Sometimes, the requirements for a smarter, simpler, social solution require a custom solution. We have an exceptionally strong Ruby on Rails team that have create bespoke solutions for our clients, but we also work with other open source tehcnologies (LAMP stack, Drupal) and proprietary frameworks such as .NET.
There are fantastic new open source tools emerging all the time, and so it is possible to put together a complete social stack using freely available code.
