About us


What We Do

We design and develop complete software solutions, of which our intuitive apps - together with web interfaces - are the visible parts of it. Our focus is on intuitive design, but with more than 16 years of experience in technical software engineering we do know how to build the invisible parts too. Take that as an understatement. Doing your own software project and need some advice? We are happy to do consultancy!

How We Look At It

We don't expect the user to adapt to a product, the product should adapt to its user's needs and habits. Or in other words: if the user presses the wrong button, it is the button that's wrong! We put the user back in control by re-assessing computers and mobile devices for what they really are: a convenience factor.

How We Do What We Do

We have been raised object-oriented and work best in an Agile or Scrum-like way: we use super-short iterations with a demonstrable product at the end of each iteration, allowing the customer to stay updated and adjust the course in every phase of the project. We can do your project fixed-price or against our hourly rate.

What We're Good At

  • Analyzing your requirements (both functional and non-functional) - or, if you wish, create those requirements together with you
  • Observing and asking the correct questions
  • Handling requirement changes in each phase of the project
  • Creating a robust software architecture
  • Implementing and testing which results in a stable, scalable and maintainable end-product
  • Coping with technical challenges

What We Learnt

  • Supporting multiple platforms prohibits you from using the exclusive features of each distinctive platform. Avoid if possible
  • Test-driven development is a must: make a unit test which fails, implement code, run unit test
  • Re-factor > redesign: don't throw away experience
  • Self documented code > comments: every comment you write should be a trigger to reconsider
  • Challenge every (design) decision, don't make decisions based on experience or standards alone
  • Don't make assumptions. Ever.
  • If the user presses the wrong button, it is the button that's wrong
