Co-Design

The Services We Offer

In our role as co-designer of your new IT solutions we pay particular attention to your current work practices. Because nobody knows your job better than you do. That's why we insist that all relevant stakeholders are actively involved. Our support is based on extensive experience with innovative technologies and their associated development processes. In selecting and customizing the best-suited state-of-the-art technologies to your application, we work closely with you.

In many years of managing R&D projects funded by public agencies or industrial partners, we have acquired solid expertise in a wide range of technologies:

  • App design and development for smartphones and tablets
  • Smart glasses and head-mounted displays
  • Recognition of context, location-based media
  • Web-based cooperation systems
  • Exhibits for trade fairs and museums
  • Software development in general
  • Mixed and Augmented Reality
  • Smart watches
  • Social media
  • Groupware
  • Blockchain 

Our Approach: Iterative Development

You may have taken the first step already, but find it hard to advance further in the unknown territory. Then a good piece of advice just isn't enough, what you need is help in the implementation process.

Your problem is the starting point of our participatory design process, which will quickly produce tangible results, such as mock-ups or interactive prototypes. For the shared work on your project the most appropriate methods and technologies will be selected.

Typically, workshops will be used to decompose your problem into manageable tasks that are worked on in parallel or consecutive steps. Together with you, interim results are evaluated to determine the next steps in a flexible framework. Step-by step, we make robust progress, conduct tests in real-life conditions without being afraid of mistakes or apparent failures. And we will find out very early if a candidate solution does not pass this fitness test. In a learning-by-doing approach, we build on our insights and tackle the problem from alternative angles.

Based on the experiences gained from these "Minimum Viable Products" (MVP) the actual system development is derived, which will make the difference for your specific application.
