Specialized Designers Realize Your Vision
User Interface Design
Without a plan to manage team turnover or bandwidth challenges, solution design can stall. Libraries of visual elements can be used to partially fill this gap but can quickly become inconsistent.
Our team brings experience designing sitemaps, wireframes, decision/task flows, user interface, development-ready assets, prototypes and pixel-perfect screens. Whether you’ve created the identity system and need production support or seek expertise realizing your product vision, we bring a user-centered, human-first approach to each project.

Expand Your Pool of Custom Software Developers
Increase momentum with custom software developers able to scale technical capabilities for as little or as long as you need.
High demand has made it difficult for development teams to source talent. Businesses must balance product enhancements and solution maintenance with budget goals. We partner with our clients to affordably increase their development velocity with experts sourced from our Minneapolis headquarters or our technical center in Bulgaria.
Custom software developers are matched with projects based on experience ensuring each team is equipped with technical SMEs to guide success. We bring expertise managing Agile process with distributed teams delivering increased communication with decreased cost.

On-Demand Analysts Plan and Run Your Strategy
While some development firms use BAs, PMs or developers to test their code, we believe in laser focus. Our testing team is involved from the outset of your project helping to select and shape the testing strategy for your solution.
Quality assurance analysts play an integral role shaping the user experience of a solution — sussing out logical holes in the development and recommending adjustments. We bring expertise in automation engineering, risk-based testing, requirements documentation, defect tracking and report maintenance in the latest testing practices.
