How can we help?
Here at BrightMinded Towers many of us have been developers for longer than we care to remember. (In fact if you buy Dan a nice cup of Sencha tea he’ll regale you with stories of writing and selling his first video game over 30 years ago.)
Over that time we’ve learnt to code in many languages, developed for many platforms and gained a huge amount of experience delivering successful software projects into production. Our founding team also has a wealth of project and product management experience, allowing BrightMinded to to take on projects that might be beyond the scope of other small development teams.
We’ve applied our knowledge to a vast array of domains – from web development and e-commerce to forensic science, from finance to Government communications (sshh!).
We know that digital projects only work if the technical team communicate effectively with the non-technical stakeholders, and we’re good at this. We explain technical concepts and possibilities in ways that everyone can understand, so we make good technology partners. We’re happy to get involved right at the start of a project, helping to clarify requirements and advising on choice of technology and technical feasibility.
We also understand that your digital project doesn’t finish when the site or application goes live. We want to work with you for the long-term and we can provide support, maintenance, hosting, new features – everything you need to keep your project up to date.
If you have a problem that needs a software solution, the chances are good that we can provide it. Some of the things we can help you with:
We've taken WordPress out of the realms of blogging and turned it into a fully-featured Content Management System customised exactly to your requirements. You get the benefit of a well-tested user-friendly interface with a mature development community; we don't need to reinvent the wheel. Whether we're running personalised e-learning algorithms, developing innovative search interfaces or telling your brand story by animating your logo, we know how to do it on top of WordPress.
We use the latest technology to ensure rapid development and have written native apps for iOS, Android and Windows phones and tablets. We must be doing it right because we were finalists in IBM's Watson mobile developer challenge! Whether you want a simple app, or need mind-blowing Augmented Reality, we can do it in a cost-effective way.
The BrightMinded team have worked on many AI production applications including portfolio optimisation and risk-reduction tools using Evolutionary Computation. We have also used Pattern Recognition and Neural Network techniques for commercial fingerprint and numberplate recognition systems. Recently we became IBM Watson development partners, and we are exploring the Cognitive Computing possibilities opened up by this new technology.
There isn't much we haven't done when it comes to API integrations. Whether it's a run of the mill MailChimp signup form, a customised Google maps integration or synchronising with your bespoke third party database, we'll figure out the best way to get different systems connected. We've integrated WordPress with a Building Management System to generate real-time animated dynamic infographics, and unified 11 disparate multi-lingual XML sources into one coherent data feed.
You want a shiny new easy-to-maintain website and CRM but your data is stuck in a legacy database? We'll get your data into the right format, even if our SQL experts have to write join statements that would make your eyes water! We use MySQL, PostgreSQL and RIAK in production systems, and we can migrate from Access and other Microsoft technologies.
