We Know Data was founded by Rob Speakman in 2012. His vision was to create a software company that truly lives, breathes and understands the businesses it helps while always delivering quantifiable benefits. We are now one of the UK’s leading FileMaker Development Consultancies with the largest collection of certified FileMaker Developers. We can also provide many other development solutions.
Our team of developers brings together some of the most creative minds in the industry who all share a passion for business innovation, developing forward thinking database solutions and using the latest technology to its fullest.
We have a huge amount of experience in delivering solutions to a wide range of business sectors; but most importantly we’ve found that truly creating something great is only possible if there is a foundation of openness and partnership on all sides. This is the ethos behind everything we do.
Our user friendly approach doesn’t only apply to user interfaces – it’s also a fundamental aspect of our communication with our clients.
Whilst jargon can assist with the precision and efficiency of communication this is only the case when all involved have the same level of technical knowledge. When this is not the case, it has the opposite effect. As customers turn to us to solve business problems using technology, that we are more proficient with, we must assume that jargon will not help – so whenever possible we will avoid its use. If we do fall into the trap you are very welcome to pull us up.
We structure our work so that the person specifying the system is not the person who will do the development. We ensure that testing is always done by someone else – it’s hard to see your own mistakes.
Developers with fewer staff or who work on smaller projects rarely have the resource to work in this way.
We will challenge what you ask us to do for you. We aim to surpass your expectations and deliver what your organisation needs. Automating an existing bad process will not achieve this, so we will question some of your requests when our experience is to the contrary.
It’s a lot more than making it look pretty. Consistent, intuitive screen layouts can be massive efficiency drivers. They are essential in speed of learning and ready adoption of systems and the business processes that they support.
It is important that clear uncluttered design leads the eye to the appropriate part of the screen. We go further than this by finding additional improvements and building in data integrity checking across your systems as a whole.
Our working culture is very important to us. We’ve decided that who works for us is much more important than where they work. We take pride in the fact that by using technology to the full we have been able draw together some of the country’s most creative developers. We find that with good people it doesn’t matter whether they are working in Whitechapel or Wales. This is just one example of our trusting and open approach to business.
