Introduction

I want to scale quickly.

You’re growing quickly; hiring new staff, engaging with more customers, investing more money. How do you keep up? You need the right processes and tech in place to support your growth. That’s where we can help. We have worked with many organisations who are looking to scale quickly and “appify” to maintain a centralised system.

Realising the only way to scale is to create a digital product.

We work closely with you to understand what you need to achieve and build quickly to produce something you can implement straight away.

We came to realise that by building an online database we could create software that would take the science of due diligence into the digital age, expand our client base, but crucially make the process much more cost-efficient for users.

Introduction

I want to digitise my current processes.

You have the same manual process your business has used for years. It's slow and hard to maintain. There may be resistance in the company, thinking about the complications of going digital and the costs involved, but you know you need something now. We have supported many organisations looking to go digital, keeping the costs down as we focus on what you need.

Discovery and workshopping to make sure we understand what needs to be digitised.

We discover what you really need and workshop with key decision makers to deliver something that is easy to use and even easier to maintain.

One of the issues I had with the first agency I met with was that I felt like they were just giving me what I wanted instead of leading me through the process. I explained to them what I wanted and provided a budget that eventually they just matched in their proposal. Whereas with Bad Dinosaur we workshopped the idea and came up with a phased plan for the project.

Introduction

I want to cut costs, save time and become more efficient.

You are growing and gaining more customers, but the workload is also increasing. More repetitive tasks are pulling you away from running your business and costing you time and money. If only there was an app that could do that part of your job. There might be. We have helped companies learn how they can cut costs and develop a digital product that promotes a growing business.

Understand how to cut costs and save resource through a digital product.

We listen to you and your company vision to better understand what we can build with you. Having worked on over 50 products we know the right questions to ask for success.

The guys at Bad Dinosaur really got to know us and understood what we were trying to achieve. I’m a meticulous person and was spending ages perfecting these bespoke books, so initially we didn’t see the value in creating a system to add automation to our model… Russ, however, clocked the potential immediately and insisted upon it. I’m glad he did…

Introduction

I want a digital tool that works for me and my business.

You’re paying for subscriptions to platforms you hardly use. You'll rarely find off the shelf solutions for your business that do everything you need without making some sacrifices. You have tools that don’t integrate, causing more trouble for you and the team. Why is there nothing that does exactly what you want it to do? That was our problem, along with many other companies. We build a solution that is not only fit for purpose, but can adapt and grow as you do.

How quickly you can save costs and make something fit for purpose.

Whilst it's not a good idea to reinvent the wheel, there's a lot to be said for designing something for exactly how you're going to use it rather than continually trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. We share our expertise and build something that keeps you focused.

We realised a while back we were juggling a number of different pieces of software, none of which were tailored to our business. We wanted new functionality to streamline our work processes and so built Portal. It has a range of features; allowing us and our clients to track their projects from one place. We’ve gained new insights into customer and staff behaviour which has evolved our thinking and have found this imperative to onboard new staff and grow as a business.
