About us

Over 20 years of digital transformation experience

We are a digital services company specialising in empathy towards users.

We were founded to help provide what we see as much-needed alignment between what businesses need and what their customers want.

All too often we see businesses and their end-users suffering from poor digital experiences, as well as teams being overloaded leading to low levels of employee and customer satisfaction.

This can be through a lack of in-house expertise, a lack of an evidence-based approach, and a gap between Customer and Employee experiences; both of which we believe are intrinsically linked.

We help either through the development of new digital services for your business or by guiding you on how to improve existing ones and improve your customer and employee digital experiences.

In addition, we provide unique Agile training for teams and leaders on how to deliver and maintain high levels of employee and customer satisfaction from the channels under their care.

Our Vision

To live in a world where digital services solve meaningful problems for employees and customers and where digital teams are both high performing and happy.

Our Mission

To bring customers and employees together through the delivery of digital services and thinking that make lives better.

 

Our values and how they help you

We are: Evidence-based

We challenge the status quo where assumptions are often made about customer needs and behaviours as this leads to failing your customers and the company.

We are: Value focused

We help you understand and deliver the highest value for your customers and teams by understanding the problems they want to solve and helping you solve them.

We are: Human-centric

To unlock high performance, we put human needs, wellbeing and safety at the heart of our own business. We like to work with customers that do the same.

We are: Fearless

We are comfortable with continual change where many people fear it. We lean into problems rather than lean back. We know this is an opportunity to serve your customers better in a rapidly changing digital world.

    Associate Consultant

    Since graduating from Falmouth University's 3D Design for Sustainability course, Emma has spent her career using design to make a change in the world.

    She began her career working for many design agencies as a researcher, facilitator, and interviewer on numerous service design projects aimed to improve Cornwall's Public Sector. Led by the Design Council, the "Dott Cornwall" Programme was one of the first mass experiments in using co-design thinking in practice.

    After moving to Bristol, Emma continued to work in the charity and third sector as a project manager, specialising in piloting new projects and service delivery ideas. From food waste to homelessness, from digital democracy to dementia, her user-led approach to understanding issues has yielded great results.

    Her projects have won awards for introducing co-production into the care sector, exemplary partnership working across Bristol, and innovation in both the care and events sector.

    She also worked with Scott in the design and rollout of the award-winning intranet for Avon and Somerset Police.

    During the pandemic, Emma was funded by National Lotteries' Catalyst programme to understand older tech users' needs. She continues to work with software providers to make their software more accessible to older people.

    Emma is currently leading on the setup of an on-demand video service aimed at older people living with dementia and their carers.
