Our three focus areas for R&D

With a team of brilliant minds it can be tempting to explore every idea that comes our way, but it’s important to align ourselves with our mission, as well as to focus on what will genuinely benefit our customers and their users. Here are the three areas where we focus our time and energy for innovation.

Improving digital experiences

As a business our core focus is on making digital experiences better. This means seeking to make websites and applications more enjoyable to use. Our digital R&D includes the never ending mission to create fast, secure and high ranking websites through refining website frameworks and technologies.

Advancing the WordPress platform

As a dedicated WordPress agency we’re proud to be part of a community that values collaboration and innovation. Our WordPress R&D is focused towards improving the way our customers manage their content and the tools available to help them excel in their marketing.

Understanding how people interact online

As a UX design agency we’re constantly gathering unique and powerful insights that help to strengthen business decisions for our customers. We do this through our own intelligent methods for user research including heuristic evaluations, competitive analysis and qualitative research.
