// The product development journey

Research & Strategy

Good decisions need good insights. The business impact of technological change to markets, operations & costs are often far-reaching. We can provide expertise to analyse options, cut through complexity and give you the insight you need.

Whether it’s developing a new product, or connecting and integrating existing devices and systems, there are a myriad of options and trade-offs you’ll need to think about. We can help you set a strategy for success.

Design & PoC

We’ve delivered designs that have been deployed in volumes from a handful of units for specialist equipment to many millions of units of consumer electronics. We always follow a secure by design philosophy and will consider security from the outset. We can develop a Proof of Concept (PoC) so you can test the feasibility of your approach, validate the design of your connected product and test assumptions in your research and strategy.

Development & MVP

We’ll work with you to create a complete product design or component/module design. We can dovetail into your continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) process or put in place new processes.

We’ll develop a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) to give you a clear understanding of the technology components required; the data flow, the security and encryption, the interoperability, rights-based access, the user interfaces and experiences.

Compliance & Risk

From the very start of your connected product development journey, we’ll be looking to manage your risk and compliance; risks such as cybersecurity, data protection and privacy, as well as compliance to the myriad of regimes, certifications and standards across both hardware and software.

Production & Scale

We know that one of the biggest challenges is scaling a product from proof of concept or MVP to the mass market. Scaling to high-volume manufacturing means thinking ahead and preparing for the future early in the product development journey.

Maintenance & Operation

From secure updates to deploying new features, remotely diagnosing and fixing issues or managing component end-of-life issues, we can help you with ongoing operation and maintenance to keep thrilling your customers.

  • Research & Strategy

    Good decisions need good insights. We can help you analyse options and set a strategy for success.

  • Design & PoC

    We can develop a hardware, embedded software, cloud or full end-to-end Proof of Concept (PoC) for testing.

  • Development & MVP

    We’re experienced software developers using the latest agile methods and take an iterative approach to product development.

  • Compliance & Risk

    We have a long track record of working with clients to ensure their connected products are robust, secure and safe.

  • Production & Scale

    We’ll help you and your teams plan, scale and deliver your product to manufacture and market.

  • Maintenance & Operation

    Keeping your connected devices and systems up to date, secure and enhanced with new features.
