We do mobile from the ground up and all points in between. If you’re just starting – with a blank sheet of paper or a simple goal – we can help with concept ideation and strategy development. Do you want individually tailored, highly creative user experiences to “wow” your audiences (and keep them coming back for more)? That’s us. Need mobile infrastructure or integration with existing back-end systems? No problem. And if you’re looking for highly-engineered technical solutions delivered across one – or many – mobile platforms, you’ve come to the right place. And of course, it goes without saying, that all our projects are undertaken with a keen eye towards the ultimate market, with total transparency and dedicated project management.
We’re Gridstone. Challenge Accepted.
We listen to your ideas – and help to grow, refine and define them further into a unique solution that is immersive, highly usable and absolutely focused on your objectives.
Your vision and your audience’s needs are the two most important aspects of building a successful solution. Our valuable scoping and discovery sessions are essential to the development of a bulletproof strategy to see your solution flow seamlessly from concept, to development and on to market sales.
It should come as no surprise that some of the most successful apps are also the best looking ones! But simply having a beautiful app is no guarantee of success. It is the elegant combination of aesthetics and functionality that together deliver highly engaging user experiences, which are the hallmark of the best mobile apps.
Designing compelling user experiences is hard work (but we love it). To do it well, we strive to understand your business and objectives, and your app’s audience and their needs. Then we look to uncover ways to meet those requirements through a combination of creative visual solutions and cutting-edge technology. As the old saying goes, beauty is more than skin deep.
Enterprise Mobile Enablement
Mobile apps are no longer merely a consumer fad. Apps are serious business, and serious tools for business. At Gridstone, we have first-hand experience developing solutions for government and corporate clients; including mission-critical apps for emergency services and transport logistics. Situations where failure is not an option. We get it.
Like you, we know that behind the screens lies a complex IT infrastructure which requires serious technical know-how. We understand security and compliance requirements; mobile architecture and deployment; delivery, service and support structures. Our technical architects have decades of experience with big data, warehouses, ERP, CRM, analytics and cloud-based services – and what it takes to integrate them with emerging mobile environments. We speak your language. Problem solved.
In just a few years, mobile has made its mark. Mobile apps are here to stay, and yet we’ve only just scratched the surface of what’s possible. That makes for an exciting space in which to be working! Innovation and discovery are our lifeblood; challenge is our DNA. We’re always looking for new ways to extend the range and scope of mobile solutions. So if you’re looking to expand the reach of your business, engage with new audiences, or create more agile systems and services, we’re here.
We understand business needs and commercial imperatives. Our team talents include key experience in marketing and communications. So we know how to deliver commercially-oriented and -successful projects. Whether a greenfields solution, or an enhancement to existing systems, Gridstone can help. We offer full support for all phases of mobile application strategy, development and deployment; from initial technology selection and architecture; to software development, integration and implementation; to post-deployment operational and commercial support. We’ve got it covered.
Meaningful content is the key to highly engaging customer experiences and the magic ingredient that keeps them coming back. Harnessing content from diverse sources, distributing it across multiple channels and bringing order to the chaos in between: that’s content management, and we’re experts at it.
Data feeds, digital audio and video, integration with legacy data systems, file shares and portals, databases, records and reports is all a part of it; so too are analytics and reporting. Most importantly, content can be a significant cost factor in any application. Managing content is a critical (and frequently overlooked) element of any successful mobile project. We understand content and how to make it work for you.
Quality Control and User Testing
Put quality and consistency at the core of your product – and your customers will love you for it. Our quality control and user testing process ensures only the best aspects of your solution flourish. Anything less gets … well, you get the picture.
Our stringent testing means your consumers aren’t subjected to mediocre performance, slow connections, or worse – ugly interfaces! Quality control is an important stage for us and we aim to deliver nothing short of a perfect solution that works in every possible scenario, every single time. We love solutions that retain a place in our everyday lives and we believe that your solution should be no different.
