The Story of Airteam

 

How our Directors came together

Rich had been running his own software development team for a few years, David his own design agency and Patrick after 10+ years working for other agencies had spent a year running his own UX/Customer Experience Consultancy. Realising the sum of all these parts would be greater than the individual components the guys decided to bring their thoughts, ideas, resources and vision together to form Airteam. It allowed for the design and development of true, end-to-end digital products and services, brought together an awesome team of talented people and allowed the capability to address a couple of issues the guys saw in the market that they weren’t happy with.

ISSUE 1 - COST OF INEXPERIENCE

Many consultancies and agencies charging over-inflated prices for sub-standard work and poorly experienced teams and with a lack of process and ability to truly handover IP to clients.

 

ISSUE 2 - SPEED OF DELIVERY 

Agencies and consultancies still moving slowly and not at start-up speeds. Building in lengthy and costly waterfall approaches which weren’t needed to arrive at the desired end-result.

And with that Airteam took off, hiring only experienced professionals and using lean and agile approaches and tools to help clients deliver digital products and services at start-up speeds.
