What is a design & technology consultancy?

As a design & technology consultancy, we help forward-thinking leaders discover, understand, and execute on their greatest opportunities. Existing somewhere on the spectrum between a business consultancy and a custom software agency, we offer the best of both worlds to clients:

  1. Rich exploration of their business landscape to find the best path forward
  2. Expert design and technical staffing to create products that help businesses achieve their goals

Whether companies need to automate their processes, make more data-driven decisions, or address issues before scaling, we’re great at helping teams sort through the messy early stages of transformation. What sets us apart from other consultancies is that once the initial strategy work is complete, you won’t be stuck with a plan that isn’t actionable.

We run the full length of the marathon with clients from exploration and research to designing, building, and launching world-class experiences that deliver the intended impact.

The innovative trailblazers of tomorrow understand that true reinvention requires 3 elements: the people, the processes, and the technology.

What value do we provide?

Today the stakes are incredibly high for businesses attempting a digital transformation. 84% of digital transformation projects flop due to the failed adoption of technology. We’re in an industry working against formidable odds to help executive leaders make smarter bets when it comes to software and business optimization.

For these leaders, we’re their competitive advantage for effectively getting to the root of the problem that their technology seeks to address. We complete the due diligence required to validate whether or not it’s the right solution and if it will be successful in the long run. Sometimes we find the answer isn’t building software at all.

Think of us like a trusted, unbiased third party to pressure test ideas. Our product experts challenge leaders to see differently and bring fresh perspective that reveals possibilities not yet considered.

Who do we work with?

  • Companies that know the symptoms they’re dealing with but are not fully sure of the underlying problem
  • Companies that have done the research but need help shaping why their product concept is meaningful
  • Companies that have a plan but are lacking the capabilities and momentum to get the ball rolling
  • Companies that have an existing product that needs to be revamped to meet evolving business or customer needs

What makes us different?

We aren’t a traditional consultancy that offers big ideas and then falls flat when it comes to implementation. Unfortunately many consultancies are known for this. Crema's heritage as product shop means swift execution is in our organization’s DNA. We're a group of doers.

We also aren’t a "dev shop" that churns code without regard for the outcomes that follow. Our clients will tell you that our greatest service is not only providing high quality designs and code, but also bringing the critical thinking, collaboration, and spirit of partnership that carry the experience beyond expectation.

For us, strategy is a practice and a competency. A handful of our team members are specialized in customary strategy work. Yet all of our product experts are uniquely trained to have a broader understanding of the business and user to be able to approach the work strategically. Designers, UX writers, developers, and test engineers are calibrating the work each step of the way to ensure we're tracking towards the goal.
