So you’ve taken your idea for a life-changing digital product and turned it into a potential project! All of the what, where, how, when and why’s have been meticulously thought through and planned. Your dream is thisclose to coming to reality.

Well…not *quite*

There is still one last vital step that could make or break your project, and that is how to pick an agency to deliver your digital baby. In our 12+ years as a digital product agency, people are still surprised that their dream agency doesn’t instantly pop up in a Google search. A great product could be completely foiled because the right agency wasn’t chosen to build it.

It goes beyond considering if 1) can they do the job? 2) do you like working with them? But all the nuances in-between that. What exactly are those nuances you might be asking yourself?!

Luckily, we had our fabulous hosts and superstar panel there to walk us through the process and all the considerations you should make when making with this decision…

Our dream team

As usual, we had our fearless leaders, Rich and Gabby, on hand steer the ‘HMS Tech For Good Talks’. As the MD and Head of Commercial at 3 Sided Cube, this topic was right up their alley! They have navigated many a client through our doors and had loads of top tips for anyone shopping agencies out there. With their shared expertise on this topic, this event could have lasted hours, but we had our superstar panel ready and raring to give their insights.
