"It's easy to say it, but our true goal is to create long-term win-win partnerships with our clients. We want everyone around the table to be motivated to get the best results possible."

This basically means "learning about people". Why should you do this? To better understand them. Then we can build apps and digital tools that truly improve their lives. And more importantly, that they'll want to use.
It's not unusual for us to interview 10-30 people to get an understanding of their pain points and what is important to them.
Your apps, websites and other digital products sit alongside the rest of your business. So it's important everything is joined up. We don't just design apps, we look at the end-to-end experience and make sure it works.
You might find us following a purchase or booking right through your entire business, just to see how it all hangs together.
Apps rarely fail because they are not pretty enough. So we advocate prioritising function over form. That's not to say your app or website won't look and feel awesome. It will. We just focus on the critical stuff first and add the "moments of delight" later.
Expect to see evolving sketches and design ideas throughout the development of product.
We don't do the usual design, build, test and ship. We put business people, technical people and design people together from day one. This means all skills contribute to decisions and the shape of the solution.
You're ideas will be benefitting from all that expertise from the get go, which prevents ivory-tower design failures and ensures decisions are informed.
Unless you're a startup, it's unlikely you'll want to throw your project in the bin after 2 years. If your engineers don't write good code, you'll find progres slows down and costs creep up.
You probably aren't technical, but take some comfort in the fact that all our technical work is peer reviewed and written to our own internal guidelines.
Quality means a lot of things, but we tend to refer to it as "not annoying people". If you don't keep quality in check, you risk upsetting people, which can have detrimental affects on customer retention, reputation and growth.
Nothing leaves Pocketworks without being quality checked. Some of our apps are used by millions and undergo 30 hours of testing before release.
