Our services

We help organisations modernise and succeed in the digital economy through our Data, Software & Automation services.

  • Data

    Our full-stack cloud data service allows us to rebuild your organisation around modern technologies. Working on the leading platforms - AWS, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure - we design and develop services and products to maximise the value in your data. Often resulting in enhanced customer profiling, new revenue generating products or delivery of more efficient services.

  • Software

    We provide insourced and outsourced product and lean software development. Using cloud based microservices we code in multiple languages including Java, Python and Go. Working agile, in close partnership with your teams, we help them to accelerate programmes and bring new products to market quickly.

  • Automation

    Increasingly, you’ll see us integrating intelligent automation and robotic processing (RPA) into our work. Automation is bringing down costs, streamlining client businesses and releasing time back to organisations. We work with intelligent automation leader Thoughtonomy and our cloud partners in building solutions to quickly return value to your organisation’s bottom line.

Our work

Real business we’re doing right now.

  • BBC

    The story

    Youth audiences expect the best content to be available to them in a single place, personalised to their preferences and interests. At the moment this is almost impossible for the BBC. Content and audience data are distributed across myriad, disconnected systems. Additionally, content metadata is lacking, which makes it challenging to discover content. The BBC wants to properly engage the next generation of TV licence fee payers, many of whom already have less affinity with the BBC than the rest of the UK population does.

    The detail

    As part of the BBC Datalab, we’re leading software development and product management for the Content Graph which will help meet the exponential growth in demand for personalised and predictive programming. Powering the next generation of BBC applications and services, the Graph lays the foundations for true service integration and real transformation.

  • DVLA

    The story

    DVLA is undertaking a major migration/service modernisation programme, completely rebuilding services that are critical to the nation.

    The detail

    Our work includes components of mainframe replacement, front-to-back service integrations and the creation of business logic to validate and fulfil driving test passes, with additional products covering vehicle registration and tachograph services. Our team of onsite developers delivers multiple, business-critical features every month, flexing with the demands of the business.

    I just wanted to say a HUGE THANKS again for everyone’s commitment to the Trailer Registration service. A number of key milestones met over the last few weeks such as the completion of our first end to end journey and integration with three common components, plus the successful outcome of our GDS assessment.” 
– Test Manager - DVLA

    The behaviours and approach of their project and technical resources should be seen as an exemplar as to how external delivery teams integrate with the wider delivery programmes.”

  • Ranger Services

    The story

    Ever wondered what it takes to make sure that the car parked in a camera-controlled car park, is the one that you’ve paid for? Probably not, but what you take for granted requires some serious heavy lifting in the machine learning-powered image recognition and cloud computing department. The systems we’ve built and maintain for Ranger Services process millions of images an hour looking for these kinds of anomalies and through modern automation, make sure that you get peace of mind when you park.

    The detail

    Ranger Services is a leading parking technology company and the driving force in industry modernisation. As part of our radical transformation work with them, we’ve moved core data services into the Cloud and developed an end-to-end service for clients and their parking customers.

    All services are built in Microsoft Azure using native solutions to ensure fully scalable, highly-available systems for the millions of data points Ranger handles every hour. For the first time, Ranger clients can now see real-time data on their infrastructure, understand how their service is working and what’s going to make it better for their customers.
