Specialising in enterprise digital transformation, our practices provide an array of digital and commercial skills.
Unless you are a brand-new start-up, you likely have one or two systems in your digital estate preventing strategic objectives and growth from being achieved. Fragile point-to-point integrations, expensive upgrade cycles, ageing infrastructure, and locked down business data are some of the most common challenges a business faces today. Fixing them requires large scale digital transformation, and that is a daunting task. At Profound, we help enterprise organisations go on this journey. From identifying business needs, aligning them to key strategic objectives, choosing the right technologies and then implementing them in a way that can demonstrate value. We do all this and support the business teams through appropriate change management activities.
Customers are at the heart of what we do. From the business customers you might sell to, to the end customer who uses your product, to your internal teams who are customers of your digital estate. Understanding who they are, what motivates them, and prioritising the changes needed in your customer experience are key to delivering successful outcomes. Our digital experiences deliver value because we take time to understand the customer, test experiences with them and then help businesses change their operations to deliver new or improved experiences. This approach takes the internal assumptions out of what customers want and allows businesses to undergo a user experience design processes in a customer-centric way.

Communicating a consistent brand image across all your touchpoints is vital.

Profound will work closely with your team to understand the current state of play and define the way forward. Working with all the relevant stakeholders and ultimately building a set of principles, guidelines, reusable components and libraries that will enable you to create better digital products with a consistent experience that enhances the end-user experience.
