We’re very happy with the designs. Skyward Digital visited our offices and watched our staff using our internal application to see our pain points and deeply understand our domain and terminology, so they could deliver what we were aiming to achieve.

We’re very happy with the value for money and the designs that we receive from Skyward Digital and there’s nothing we'd have them improve.

What services do you include?

Audit & Research:
We start by identifying where you’re at and where your team would benefit most from our support. We put together a high level project map to understand how users commonly use your current application.

UI/UX Design:

After identifying the most important pages to improve, we create wireframes then turn those into high-quality designs gathering feedback about the new screens as we go to ensure their success.

Application Development:

Next we build the new application for your team, based on the designs created above.

Support & Future Improvements:
During launch we’ll support your team’s transition to the new platform and make sure it’s delivering results. If there’s any further improvements that we can make after launch (from even grander visions) we can support with those too.

Book a free consultation or email if you’d like to discuss our services

I don’t need all your services. Can you provide just design/development?

We can offer just design or development to support your needs but you’ll see the best results when we’re able to supply our entire package as each service is designed to work with the others.

If you’re not sure which service you need, book a free call or email and we’ll help you figure out what’s best for you

What if I already have lots of data?

If you are already storing your own customer data we’ll ensure it’s brought forward onto the new platform.

We’ll work together with your backend developer to make sure that your old data is retained while we provide new, clean data from your new application.

Can you provide support for us after launch?

We’d love to continue to support you once we’ve finished building your new application.

Once we get to that point, we can discuss your maintenance needs and set up a plan that works for you.

What technologies do you use to build the application?

We use Figma for our design work which provides an excellent collaborative experience for any number of users

We use Next.js & Tailwind for our frontend development and can integrate with any backend provided it has APIs to integrate with. We can make recommendations on backend solutions too, if you don’t already have one.

We need specific platform integrations. Can you include them?

Our build process allows us to integrate data from other platforms into your application, so if you need to scrape linkedin for emails or something else, we can work with you to implement that.

How long before we start to see results?

It depends on the complexity of the build. We want to provide the best results we can

We’d expect to spend ~3 months working on each major section of your app in each stage (Candidates, Companies, etc) but will do our best to overlap as much design/dev work as possible.

It may be possible to release changes as we go, which speeds up result times significantly and allows us to gather success data on those sections while we work on future ones.

Book a free consultation or email if you’d like to know more.

How do I get started?

To get started all you need to do is book a call.

There’s no obligation, the first call helps us understand how we can best help your team.

Pick a time that best suits you and we’ll talk about where your business is struggling and what we can do to help get your business to where you want it to be.
