technology

Communications technology is the perennial facilitator of greater collaboration between people. From the alphabet, to roads, to the printing press and the telephone. The internet is just the most recent development in an ongoing journey. People who have more effectively collaborated have always more effectively thrived, but there are winners and losers. It’s our job to tip the balance in favour of the former.

Our approach to online service delivery includes:

  • Being technology agnostic – supporting organisations with a range of platforms
  • Using open source, where possible
