  • Energized Work is a software development lab based in London.We’re out to make people smile with software that’s actually useful – that feels good and lets them do things the way they want without technology getting in the way. We don’t mess around when it comes to software. Energized Work started because we got fed up seeing businesses let down by traditional software delivery. We want to show it’s possible to get what’s needed on time and on budget.We want to stop money being wasting on over-complicated solutions with technology that isn’t needed, features that won’t be used and software that isn’t up to scratch. In 2009, our approach won the Gordon Pask award from the Agile Alliance.
  • We don’t just create software. We‘ll help your business pursue opportunities, solve problems and deliver what users want. We focus on your business drivers so the solutions we make get the results you want.When we know what you want to achieve and why it’s valuable to your business we can be sure everything we do contributes to your success. This works best when someone from your business works with us in our lab.
  • We don’t have confusing project structures. As early adopters of Extreme Programming, we swapped process formalities for disciplined technique and common sense. Using test-driven engineering we create software that’s healthy and robust.We work fast and with purpose – there’s no nonsense, no bureaucracy and no secrets. We iterate and test assumptions to reduce uncertainty and risk. And as we hone in on what’s important we’re continuously thinking about what’s going to work best. Our software delivers benefits more valuable than the money theycost. That’s because we turn things around quickly as your business learns what’s really needed.
  • We build software to last. And we stand behind it. Experience has taught us that cutting corners comes back and hurts. We don't put things off in the rush to get software out the door because we know there’s never time later to put things right.We design solutions to run hassle free to help keep your operating costs low. They don’t need a load of people to keep things working.If something happens we step in quickly and take care of it.
  • We work with businesses who are ready to try something different to get better results from their software investment.No more poor quality, blownbudgets and late deliveries.Partnership means friendship to us. We don’t hold anything back. We put everything to work for our clients – our experience, courage and diversity. They get an experience that tells them we care, we're interested in what they say, we want to understand what they're trying to do and that we want to help.

    2. 2. Energized Work is a software development lab in London. We do things differently because we’re fed up of seeing companies let down by traditional software development. We make software that’s actually useful, feels good, and lets people do things the way they want without technology getting in the way. We’re taking a stand against bad software and poor delivery. ENERGIZED WORK’S APPROACH TO RAPIDLY PRODUCING QUALITY SOFTWARE IS THE BEST I'VE SEEN IN THE LAST 20 YEARS. – CIO at City Index © 2012 ENERGIZED WORK “
    3. 3. We don’t just create software. We keep a laser focus on your business drivers and work with you to create the solutions you need that deliver the results you want. We believe this works best when someone from your business is in the driver’s seat, working with us in our lab.

    4. 4. © 2012 ENERGIZED WORK WITH PREVIOUS PROJECTS, I WAS FRUSTRATED WITH WEEKS OF SPECIFICATION AND WAITING MONTHS FOR A FIRST GLIMPSE AT THE SOLUTION. ENERGIZED WORK WERE DEVELOPING AFTER ONE WEEK AND WE WERE PLAYING WITH A FIRST RELEASE AFTER JUST TWO. We start delivering straight away so your business benefits sooner. We release working features every week so you can test ideas with users to confirm what’s useful and make decisions based on their feedback. This way you only spend money on what’s really needed. Invest your budget a bit at a time so you can respond to change and jump at opportunities. – Editorial Director at BSkyB “
    5. 5. We move fast and keep the cost of change low because we bake quality into our software using test-driven development and continuous integration. We hate waste. Our approach is rigorous and without ceremony. If something isn’t going to deliver value to your business we don’t waste time on it. We give you an unfair advantage over your competitors.

    6. 6. Our software works. We build it fast. We build it to last. And we stand behind it. We use automated tests to create the system end to end – not just the software but also deployment and data migration, backup, failover and monitoring. We deliver solutions that run in the real world without any hassle. They scale from day one, they’re easy to use, and they’re cheap to maintain. AT FIRST I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THE GENIUS OF EXECUTABLE REQUIREMENTS AND CODING IN PAIRS, BUT THEN I RECEIVED A PLATFORM THAT WORKED FIRST TIME. AND KEPT ON WORKING. NOW I'M A CONVERT. – Program Delivery Director at BSkyB “ © 2012 ENERGIZED WORK
    7. 7. Our small teams get the job done. They’re quick thinking and light on their feet, so when you change your mind they respond quickly. While everyone else is still trying to figure things out we’re already cutting code. You can leave all the tech stuff to us. If you don’t want us to look after hosting and support, we’ll ask for a couple of your techies to work in our team from the start so they can take over easily when the time comes. © 2012 ENERGIZED WORK I WAS AMAZED AT HOW MUCH ENERGIZED WORK DELIVERED IN SUCH A SHORT TIME.

We delivered a trading system in 12 weeks that demonstrated a rigorous, real-time accounting model.
