Making technology work

What we do

We’ve worked hard to create a set of uniquely flexible services, specifically designed to support the needs of creative agencies. From extra brains to help get the most from your creative ideas, to extra hands to help meet that deadline and extra scale to stretch your budgets with our offshore team.

For many of our partners this means working as part of the day-to-day team, for others taking responsibility for delivering complete projects. Often we are simply relied on to test an in-house developed project. And more and more we are given the responsibility to support and maintain business critical web applications and sites.

What we have learned

Agencies are different

The team have all worked in creative agencies and understand the pressures; they are all client friendly. They believe and understand in the power of a good idea well executed. Working to deadline, whilst keeping an eye on the quality and compliance is what Cohaesus has become famous for.

One size doesn't fit all

Whilst born out of the rigours of enterprise software development, we know that more agile and flexible processes are often called for.

We believe that there are many different ways to get work done. We adapt our processes to suit the specific needs of the project, agency and client.

Tech can make a good idea great..

... BUT WON’T SAVE A BAD ONE. There is no secret tech silver bullet that will make a mediocre idea fly. But the combination of great creative, great content and great tech will always deliver.

We are always happy to work alongside the planning and creative teams to help shape an idea.

Trust must be earned

If looking at hourly rates in isolation we are unlikely to be the cheapest option, same goes for most of the agencies we work with.

But then most agencies and clients know that value extends beyond just time and rates. We consistently deliver projects right, first time, on budget and on time.

A multi-disciplined team

Cohaesus is a handpicked team of engineers, coders, PMs and UX professionals all at the very top of their game. We have built a pretty good understanding of what works and what doesn't.

Whilst always pushing to find a solution, we would prefer to walk away from a project than commit to delivering something that we believe will not work. It means you can count on us to given an open and honest assessment.
