Bringing services to life
Digital transformation is disrupting every market as companies strive to adapt, remain relevant and create new value for their customers, often in the face of fast moving digital-first competition. Effective service design, the key that unlocks this phenomenon, defines the touchpoints for successful digital transformation.
Our insight helps our clients determine which services will be most valuable, whilst our rapid prototyping capability brings services to life, allows ideas to be tested early and takes full ‘products with services’ to market.
The new services we create provide our clients with profitable revenue streams differentiated through state-of-the-art technology.
Navigating the digital pathway
We help our clients navigate digital transformation and exploit the true potential of digital products and services.
Our rare combination of proven design methods, multidisciplinary technical expertise and visionary mind-set ensure clear definition of how digital products can best interact with and provide valued services to their users.
This rare combination also ensures clear plans for the strategic, operational and structural transformations required of the organisations that deliver them; including significant considerations of personal data and behavioural ethics.
Co-creation, experimentation & insight
Service design is a practical approach to product development that exploits the opportunities of true digital innovation. Service design applies equally to the operational success of a digital product and the creation of compelling customer experiences. It’s also highly collaborative and experimental – a relentless pursuit of actionable insight.
Our implementation of service design is agile, insightful and effective in supporting co-creation and innovation. Using our proprietary toolset and framework, we help our clients understand their customers, deliver engaging products and services and transform into digital natives.
Tech, tools & facilities
Co-creation & co-working space
We are highly collaborative in our approach and provide dedicated co-creation facilities where we can join forces with our client teams to address the task in hand. Creative spaces throughout our offices provide a blank canvas for ad-hoc brainstorming sessions and planned workshops, inspiring our designers in their quest to develop impactful, unique and meaningful user experiences.
Our electronic and mechanical prototyping workshops allow us to produce technically credible prototypes that bring ideas to life and offer a powerful demonstration of their value. All while maintaining extremely high standards of quality that conform to ISO 9001, ISO 13485 and ISO 14001 regulations. Using the latest CNC and milling machines, lathes, welding gear and wire harness and cable assembly tools, we are able to produce parts very quickly and assemble full-scale working prototypes for testing and consumer trials.
Flo – rapid prototyping, experimentation & scaling framework
The ability to spin-up a new service proposition rapidly is vital; helping organisations touch, feel and understand new concepts but also support the essential need to trial, test and scale. Flo provides this capability, allowing our clients to quickly unlock new ideas, address key risks and deliver better service propositions on a scalable platform that we are able to support and that our clients are able to fully own.
UX design studios
Equipped with whiteboards, marker pens and acres of Post-it notes, we use these spaces to aggregate research data, user stories and create design concepts and keep them visible for the duration of the project. Each design studio allows our project teams to develop ideas and collaborate on designs whilst preserving client confidentiality.
