Why Pocketworks

We understand the challenges you face becoming a more digital business. One that leads the way with automation and customer experience. We'll guide you through it. Always straight-talking, using a robust process that's helped dozens of businesses accelerate their growth with digital tech.

Not blinding you with science

You don't need to be a tech guru to work with us. We'll guide you through a process that ensures you consider all the important things such as ROI, customer needs, integration, marketing and long-term sustainability.

Guidance when you need it

You'll have questions, and we're here to help you answer them.

  • Will we get the results we want?
  • What trends should we be aware of?
  • What is the right process for me when making an app?
  • How long should it take?
  • How much should it cost?
  • Do we make a web app too?
  • What support will we need?


Pushing for less

If you're like most of our clients, you're a market leader and want to offer the best products and services to your customers. Because technology isn't your day job, it's difficult to make sense of all the ideas and options to find the best path forward. That's where we come in.

The truth is, most successful apps do less, but they do it very well. We have helped dozens of companies find their best mobile opportunity and create apps that get results. We understand the difficulties in turning lots of ideas into a feasible concept, and how scary it can be investing in something that has the potential to change how customers experience your brand.

"Ultimately, my goal is to create things that are useful, which make us proud and benefit thousands or millions of people every day. That's the real significance of our company."

Our story

Our company was founded by Tobin Harris in 2012 when he noticed that most business apps were failing at getting traction and results. Although he didn't have all the answers, Tobin wanted to give companies a better chance at success.

Since starting the company 6 years ago, our first three apps are still in use today, one transacting over £30m a year, and all are still under active development at Pocketworks. This is what success looks like to us - helping our clients make good choices, invest wisely and ultimately make their customers and staff more productive in some way or another.
