New customer engagements begin with identifying the longterm goals of the organization and any pain points that prevent them from getting there.
After that, we build a Road Map which describes the functionality needed in each phase of development and begins to lay out an interface for the final product. For complex applications, we'll conduct Design Sprints to whiteboard alternatives and choose the best options.
With experience building applications in a wide variety of web frameworks and open standards, we choose the best tool for each job.
We stay in close contact with clients throughout the engagement to ensure that we're building tools that works the way our customer need them to. In many cases, we can provide fixed pricing which allows our customers to plan and budget with confidence.
We help our clients plan, design and build the best solution possible for their business. Whether that is a product, app, website or the entire infrastructure that powers their company. We build tools that help our customers succeed by being involved from the discovery and conceptual phases all the way to deployment. Oak.Works will be your partner in whatever you throw at us, our roots grow deep.
Rob is on a quest to simplify things. After graduating from Georgia Tech with a degree in Computer Engineering, he decided he'd rather play with computers than build them. So he moved into software development. There he spent most of the last decade-plus turning error-prone, paper-form-heavy processes into web applications that improve awareness and communication. And those are things Rob's really into.
It was the mid 90s, Steve was an intern and his supervisor remarked “we are building a website and you know computer stuff.” Fast forward 18 years through an animation degree, a brief stint as a creative director, an interactive designer for a .com during the bubble, and a UX/UI position which led to a transition to software development. Steve loves solving problems through code and still maintains a love of all things UX (and kiteboarding).
