Digital transformation made simple
We’re the world’s first tech special ops team. We don’t run projects, we run Bootcamps. These are fast, inter-disciplinary and focused on results. Which we then improve in a new Bootcamp.
Continuously improving your organisation will transform it.
So if you want a long-winded transformation strategy from a brand name consultancy look elsewhere. If you like your tech from IT men in grey suits that's not us. And we’re not creative glory-seekers selling you whizz bangs. We're “The A Team of Tech”.
What’s a Techdept Bootcamp?
A Bootcamp is a 6 stage checklist which starts with “why” and ends with a 1-page scorecard to measure improvement.
Each Bootcamp is made of a combination of:
- Strategic Consultancy
- User Experience & Interface Design
- Custom Technology
This can be applied in infinite ways. For example, we create data driven organisations, prototype and scale digital products and boost the performance of web sites.
What’s special about Techdept?
You know how techies are hard to work with? And consultants don't do the details? That's what we fix. We consult and we code. Hands-on, multi-skilled and focused on results.
We've made software since 2004. Our pet hate is all the BS you get in our industry. Get past the long buzzwords and you'll find a straightforward way to grow.
Improve. Based on what works. Get on a Techdept Bootcamp.
