For Firestitch, technology is not about code or platforms. Technology is about taking complex and frustrating problems and creating simple and elegant solutions. Having built business applications for 10 years, we’ve seen how each new client presents unique business opportunities and challenges. In 2015 we set out to build a toolkit of patterns featuring the most common problems and the best solutions we encounter every day. Our Firestitch Toolkit enables us to quickly build intuitive functional solutions based unique industry-leading patterns.
We've started with Google's Material Design. This standard details best practices for a wide range of UI/UX scenarios. As a foundation, it enables us to focus on the outlier functionality that form business process management systems.
While most business applications are primarily managed through desktops and laptops; designs need to adapt to mobile interfaces. This can be a challenge - particularly for complex, data-intensive feature rich interfaces. Leveraging our toolkit of components, we meticulously designed and constructed mobile "responsive" behaviours to minimize the need for custom responsive development at the per page or per client level. We ensure each interface adapts seamlessly to whatever screen size or distribution method users choose.
We have used our toolkit to address the most complex and unique problems you can imagine such as planning multi-step, multi-city business trips (Dedon), automating purchases with invoices and payments from multiple sources (Tuition), or scheduling thousands of shifts a week from a single page (Talent).
We embrace what makes our clients unique, and we use our toolkit to make their solutions spectacular.
These advantages mean that before even talking to us you know the patterns and precision we would use to build your application.
