It is important that our clients and visitors feel assured that their privacy is not at risk through either working with us or using our websites.

When we contract our staff on assignment with our clients, we will work under Non- Disclosure Agreements as per the terms of each assignment. We will usually work on computer equipment provided by the client, where client owned data is held and maintained. We commit to ensure all client data is kept safe and secure as and when obliged to do so.
Who are we?
We are a UK(limited) company based south west of London, specialising in digital, eCommerce, and IT.
Our clients tend to be well known house-hold name brands or global blue chip companies. We offer the following core services to our major clients: (1) strategy, (2) programme and project management and (3) outsource management. We will cover the full product life-cycle from business-case though to launch, marketing and product-development.
When we aren’t working with our major clients on large scale projects, programmes and strategic change, we spend a lot of time on self funded projects, exploring the relationship between websites that have been optimised for desk-top and mobile and ‘tuned in’ to social media. We’ve established social networks on Twitter and Facebook with feeds into the websites, some sites are linked to Facebook Applications. These projects are discussed further on this website under ‘Customers and projects‘.
