Services

  • We are flexible enough to take on a wide variety of projects. Sometimes that means helping to fill a short-term gap in a client’s organization. Other times it means using the full range of services to fully support a long-term project from start to finish. Either way, our approach to staffing and delivery is carefully tailored to the client need. While this often means that a limited range of services are being used in a single engagement, we believe that being full service, and having cross-disciplinary thinkers throughout our offices add value to every project.

  • Consulting service areas include:
    • Product Strategy 
    • Discovery
    • Vendor Selection
    • Agile Transformation 
    • Change Management 

    In our industries, the only constant is change. Rapid changes in technology and consumer preferences have made it harder and more important than ever to develop winning business and product strategies. 

    The people at Spark Digital have the experience to ask the right questions and the industry expertise to cut straight to the chase. As a result, we consistently find actionable insights that illuminate clear strategies for our clients’ business and technology portfolios. As a full-service provider, we’re also able to make sure that these strategies inform every part of the product design and development processes to deliver the greatest possible value to our clients.

  • Design service areas include:
    • UX Research
    • UX Design 

    Having great content alone is no longer enough to provide a competitive advantage. Modern consumers demand both great content and a compelling user experience. And, given the tremendous choice available to consumers, they won’t have to search long to get what they want. 

    At Spark Digital, we inhabit the mind of the user and cast them as the central character of an immersive digital experience. In every decision, no matter how big or small, we consider the impact on the user. Through deliberate research, strategy and creativity, we are able to determine which details we need to obsess over and which are less important. Still, we believe strongly in getting products into the hands of users early and often and using an iterative process that responds quickly to feedback. 
     

  • Development service areas include:
    • Solution Architecture 
    • Application Development 
    • Delivery Management
    • DevOps
    • QA 

    Building software is a fact of life in the application-driven economy. It is not a question of whether or not software has to be built, it’s a question of how to build software. How do you find a delivery partner that will reduce risk, minimize stress, maximize value and get products to market quickly? 

    At Spark Digital, we believe that building great software products must be a collaborative effort. We reduce distance between us and our clients through our flexible staffing model and by embracing the client’s hopes and goals as our own. We only hire mid- to senior-level people, and we keep our most senior engineers engaged in the code where their experience is most valuable, predicting challenges and building bullet-proof products of enduring value.

Spark Digital is a full-service provider of consulting, UX design and application development services. We often partner with clients at the definition and design phases and stick with them through the
development, launch and maintenance of the products we help create. We also often help fill gaps in a client’s organization. Our experienced team and our talent pipeline allow us to do both.
