Microsoft Gold Partner

We are a Microsoft Gold Partner for the DevOps and Cloud Platform competencies and a Silver Partner for the Application Development and Cloud Productivity competencies. We're well placed to develop mobile and web applications using Microsoft technologies and the Azure platform.

Front-end, back-end, and full-stack development

With a deep technical competency in software development we do much more than the pretty stuff that many suppliers like to do. Sure we'll give you a nice web user interface that is mobile responsive, easy to use and complies to web standards.

But what sets us apart is our ability to pragmatically deliver the complex and technical stuff that others can't. This stuff often sits in the back-end. We'll use suitable Common Web Platform technologies, databases, integration approaches, CMS platforms, and other current technologies to deliver a mobile or web application that meets your complex needs. We'll architect security, performance and other non-functional requirements into the solution from the start.

We develop native mobile apps for iOS and Android platforms.

Get the application you need

Aside from our development capability we deliver a range of activities to ensure that your mobile or web application is what you need. These activities include:

  • Project management and Scrum Masters to manage the work and the development approach
  • Systems analysis and user insight to understand your audience and their needs and represent system requirements to be developed
  • Application testing to validate your needs are met, resolve bugs, fix usability issues, and remove performance bottlenecks
  • Information architecture to conduct customer and user research, structure your mobile or web application, and maximise the user experience
  • Content design to prepare useful and optimised content in plain English for your audience
  • Ongoing support to maintain your mobile or web application over time by applying patches and updates, resolving bugs and delivering agreed enhancements.

What you can count on:

  • The right skills – we'll deliver the required capability for your mobile or web application project
  • Quality – all deliverables will be QAed by other Equinox IT team members
  • Brain trust access – our people have a direct line to the Equinox IT brain trust to get advice on project challenges
  • Hit the ground running – we've worked with many organisations and government agencies and we retain our knowledge to deliver value immediately on new work
  • Smooth sailing – while we're straight shooters, we pride ourselves in being a good bunch of people who are honourable and easy to work with
  • Integrity – we stand behind our work and deliver on our commitments.
