Arrange a free, no obligation consultation and we'll discuss how we can help.

Custom Software Development

As every tech CEO or Engineering Director knows, it’s difficult to build software. Good developers are hard to find. Contractors write code. We deliver products.

We have spent decades designing and building mission-critical software for some of the world’s largest cable and telecom companies, the scientific community, and major media companies. We’ve worked on systems that deployed software to hundreds of nodes in the Amazon Cloud, analyzed the text of millions of documents, and have helped children reach a new levels in school.

There isn’t a one size-fits-all solution to consulting. When you engage with us you get a custom solution that meets your needs.

Product Development

Is your product underperforming in the market? Are you having trouble distilling the essence of your great idea down to a minimum viable product? Unsure whether to build or buy new technology? Do you want to increase sales, expand your reach through marketing, and boost customer satisfaction?

The largest factor in the success or failure of a company is product direction. We help your products succeed by working closely with you, listening to your needs and concerns, helping with market research, user testing, concept validation, and prototyping.

We provide an outside point of view to help you refine and develop your ideas. Sometimes that’s all you need.

Test and Deployment Automation

Are you using the correct modern software engineering techniques to develop secure, reliable, maintainable products? Are you spending hours manually testing your app before you trust it enough to release it to your customers? Is doing a release as simple as clicking a button?

Software can be complicated and it can be hard to find out what the best practices are. For example, if you aren't using continuous integration or test automation, you're spending your time and money doing things you just don't have to do.

We can help you save time and money, increase your confidence in your software, and give your developers an easier time. Click to arrange a consultation, and we can explain the nuts and bolts.
