Our focus this year remains on delivering cutting edge technological solutions to solve business challenges. Solutions which make a real difference to our customers. We’ll also ensure that we stay true to ourselves, speaking to our customers in language they understand, not overcomplicating the process, being there for them when they need us and delivering our service in the friendly, down to earth manner they tell us that they love.


As technology experts, we are always keeping an eye on the trends in the tech industry, and this year is set to be a good one. Here’s our rundown of the things to look out for:


  • Single page app live experiences. Thanks to ‘React JS’ being open sourced, we will see a growth in interaction, particularly on forms through app development. This will make the user experience much more pleasurable and speed up the back end process.


  • Animation of web elements has been steadily growing for the past few years and in 2018, it will continue to develop. Expect even the most serious of websites to have some animation.


  • Privacy. There is whole movement happening around privacy, bringing to light how intrusively we can be tracked online. Consumers are becoming much more aware of their behaviour on the web and the introduction the new GDPR regulation in May will have a significant impact on privacy and consent of how personal data is used, both on and off the web.


  • Firefox vs Chrome. Continuing on with the privacy theme, Firefox have been positioning themselves as the browser to use if a user wants to maintain their privacy… it’ll be interesting to see how this USP plays out between the two browser giants as the year progresses.



If one of your objectives this year is to solve a business challenge, however unique it may feel, maybe we can help?


In the meantime, we wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2018.
