App Development

Tighter integration between hardware and software is opening new worlds of possibilities as we move beyond the web, and opportunities are waiting to be exploited. As well as developing our own products we also work in partnership with companies in a variety of sectors to develop apps. The app ecosystem is changing every aspect of our lives and companies who move with the times are scooping up marketshare and becoming global brands.

What else we provide?


We invest in software startups which we believe will be ahead of the pack. We don’t build companies for yesterday or today but for tomorrow. We have the knowledge and expertise to spot the best, advise and help along the way, and we’re doing just that with several new software companies right now.


Developing software is complex and we’re the experts. As Platform Architect at several companies and now serving as Technical Director on the boards of several more, Rob has helped businesses all around the country develop innovative software products. We provide consultation and advice for companies, helping bring software products to market.

Media Production & Marketing

The video is fast becoming the marketing tool of choice for businesses who’re looking for brand awareness and new customers. Video engages viewers and can get across vast amounts of information in a short space of time with minor effort from the viewer. YouTube is the second largest search engine and the second largest website on the internet but far less crowded than Google. The viral nature of video can help you reach new people and engage with customers. Our background in professional media allows us to provide streaming, editing, camera and sound.


We believe design should be symbiotic with the platform on which the software will run. Users should intuitively understand software without instructions. This requires an expert understanding of development for that platform, as well as great design talent. Our design process is ongoing throughout and involves both designers and software developers at all stages.
