Taking digital vision from conception to success.
We help organisations strategise, plan and execute sophisticated digital projects.
Delivering a successful digital strategy can be complex and costly. Success in digital requires significant business change. With many human, technology, marketing, process, systems integration and business variables to consider for successful digital execution, projects need control and discipline to assure success and return on investment.
There is more to today's web than providing online brochure-ware. Determining the business objectives, what is achieveable within budget and understanding the benefits to stakeholders across the business is the vital starting point in delivering a successful digital strategy.
Digital Plan & Build
The crucial and vital link between digital strategy and digital execution. We focus on the Who, Where, What, When and Why of a digital initiative aiming to maximise return on investment and achievement of objectives within and outside the organisation. Systems integration, agency and partner selection, in house competence and more are the focus of the Digital Planning phase.
Build, technology, systems integration, business process, art delivery and on-going execution are the key elements of the digital execution phase. In addition, this phase focuses upon training of key internal staff to ensure that benefit is maximised and delivered on an incremental basis.

Process Design, Adaptation and Management
Process will need design, implementation and adaptation . Going digital will almost certainly impact multiple business functions. Understanding these impacts is essential during the planning stage in order that stakeholders are able to effectively adapt to change. Digital is about much more than communications and PR. Benefits are available to virtually all business stakeholders – from Finance to HR to Customer Service through to Sales and to Marketing.
A digital project has the potential to realise benefit and impact process in a myriad of ways. Does you Finance Director want reduced invoice days?

Adaptation and creation of business process is central to ensuring a smooth transition to digital.
Making online platform and technology decisions that are right for your business
Twitter or Faceback or a good old-fashioned forum? UNIX or Windows? Opensource or proprietary? A wealth of decisions await in choosing the right platforms to use. Platform strategy is vital.
A bewildering array of choices face those planning to make the most of digital. Every organisation is unique through the markets it may operate in, the people who work for that business, size, budget allocation, levels of commitment, customer base and a wealth of other factors. Choosing the right technology is an imperative. Identifying where your customers like to go on the web is of significant importance. Whether or not you intend to conduct commerce on-line, convey a narrative or engage directly with your customers. Are you looking to make a disruptive innovation within your market? Are you building a website or a web application? The two have fundamental implications on time-scales, technology choice and budget. What skills are available in house? Locally? What do those skills cost?
The choices you make now are going to be with you a long time. Platform decisions should not be rushed and should be subjected to scrutiny and diligence.
Transforming to becoming digital media savvy , the management of change, developing digital competence and operational execution are the other significant parts.
Great websites take time and investment. You have to build within your budget limitations of course and a lot can be achieved for
less than you think and sometimes for a lot more than you think! For success, underpinning a great website will be a lot of discipline within the organisation. Traditional marketing plays an important role – you've got to know your customer right? Great technology choices are vital. Staff training – important. Stakeholder buy-in is important. Unless your budget is enormous, digital takes time to yield. The first iteration – the first splash in the pool if you like often looks a lot different to that which you offer two years later. Digital needs trial, error, informed improvement, measurement and more. In reality, it is a never-ending story. That hot website you conceive today, likely won't look so hot in two or three years time.
Choosing the right digital, technology, communications and marketing agency partners for your business.
Unless your name is eBay or Amazon, you are going to need to work with external agencies. Certain skills just won’t cost justify in-house FTE’s.
After getting the most from your in-house team, start-up, established SME or corporation, you are going to need to work with external partners to get the best from your digital investment. Electing the right partner for your business takes more than a casual internet search and a phone call or two. Alignment with your business, cost, skill set, the nature of market your business works in, geography, performance, quality of delivery, cultural fit and more are vital to deliver effectively. We'll help you identify, set and measure criteria across the various types of agency who support your digital activities.
