What do you do?
I run a web and mobile development agency, helping organisations be brilliant online!
What do you see as the biggest opportunity in your industry?
Integration/automation – the internet and web has enabled us to connect to information and each other very simply and very quickly. This allows us to access tools and people that can help us do things faster and better, freeing up our time. The next evolution will be to use data to make those tasks happen automatically – your weekly shopping just arrives without you having to order; your car is booked for it’s service without you making a call; train tickets are booked based on diary entries, etc.
It won’t so much be robots replacing humans, but unseen machines thinking for humans.
What impact will changes in your industry have on consumers? the world?
Consumers will have much more time, and fewer and fewer regular, routine tasks to do, but they will have to sacrifice privacy to make that happen.
More and more people work from anyway and take control of the time better, creating lifestyles around earning.
What is your biggest goal right now?
We are building a couple of new mobile apps to automate some of those routine tasks mentioned above. Getting these two new apps launched and generating revenue is our big goal over the next the next 6 months.
What kind of support or types of people do you need to accelerate your success?
Over the coming weeks, we will be looking to access funding. This is our biggest support need right now.
What makes you or your work different from everybody else?
We genuinely care about out clients success. We choose clients carefully, so we are really able to partner with them, not just supply to them. We work to help them build their business as if was were out own. A lot of the time we stop clients spending money with us, because it won’t help them achieve the end goal.
