Using a combination of our deep expertise in user experience design for business systems, combined with our front-end and high-performance middleware, employees, customers, partners and suppliers can access clean, modern user experiences that they love to use, without needing to redevelop entire business systems.

User Experience Design and Prototyping

Using a combination of agile user experience design combined with lean process analysis we develop measurably better user experiences that customers and employees love to use.

Thinking.Studio work with you to create realistic design prototypes that can be tested on real users and demonstrated to stakeholders before making a large investment in building the software.


Strategy Support

Helping you to bridge the gap between strategy and execution. We provide a direct line of sight between the abstract strategy, implementation, and concrete results.

Thinking.Studio's unique blend of digital strategy consulting capabilities, experience design and software engineering capabilities provides our clients with an unparalleled ability to design and execute their digital strategies.

We are used to working with multiple stakeholders to navigate IT, security and risk, compliance and external industry oversight bodies.


Hosting, Management and Support

Thinking.Studio provides deployment, hosting and support solutions on Amazon Web Services with service level agreements (SLAs) that suit your specific business needs. We use a continuous deployment pipeline, so as a release is tagged for acceptance testing or go-live, it is then built, tested, and deployed automatically into our managed AWS environments and backed up in real-time.

Hand in hand with our customised hosting solutions, we provide around the clock help desk and on-site support services to provide peace of mind for your software investment with a highly skilled support team that has a direct line of sight to the engineering team at all times.


ACT.Framework Open Source Middleware

ACT.Framework is an open source Java MVC framework that's typically 10x faster than the industry standard framework (Spring) and takes about one-third of the code to do the same thing. ACT.Framework provides native security, features and advantages that are nowhere else allowing us to develop high-performance middleware at speed.

If you are developing or deploying solutions built on ACT.Framework, we can provide commercial support agreements to give you the peace of mind you need to adopt this brilliant open source software.


User Experience and Agile Delivery Workshops

Thinking.School provides one-day workshops and coaching programmes in Agile Delivery and User Experience Design with clients that include 3M, eBay and Uber.

Developed by Joe Cincotta, these programmes apply principles from Design Thinking, Creative Problem Solving, Psychology and Engineering to expand the team’s capability.

The outcome of this is real buy-in, with efficient, effective, predictable, and measurable delivery in an environment where teams hold each other accountable.
