You've decided you need your own platform, but where do you start?
These days, a straightforward cloud-based application with interfaces for a couple of categories of users is often referred to as a platform.
But a true platform is something far more complex - it's a system that handles transactions between lots of stakeholders, and upon which you can add new functionality quickly & efficiently.
We can design and build a true multi-sided platform which helps you deliver services to your clients at scale.
We'll work with you to deliver a solution that meets your needs, whether you need something small for a particular purpose or whether you need a scalable solution to reach a large number of people. It goes without saying that it will be GDPR compliant, and very secure.

No doubt you're fully aware of GDPR, the new rules which govern data and privacy. These build upon existing data laws but require a lot of thought when it comes to IT projects. With the Enterprise Platforms service you'll be fully compliant with the rules and we'll make sure you understand your responsibilities.
