How we work

Gippstech provides smart digital products as well as the latest in technology training for your team or community.

We use an agile software development approach, based on the Design Sprint methodology that is used by GV (formerly Google Ventures) to help their startups ensure that the digital products they develop are successful. This approach is centred around rapid prototyping and testing, constantly improving based on user feedback to make sure you're on the right track.

Focus on results

We ensure our solution will help you reach your business goals by starting with a deep understanding of your business. Your website or product should be a means towards your business goals, not an end.

Customised to you
