About us

Who we are

Virtual Forge is a creative technology company.

In the ever-evolving digital age, organisations are re-imagining and re-shaping like no other time in our history.

Virtual Forge work with organisations to create digital platforms that drive innovation. We develop technology led solutions that build business and turn creative vision into reality. We believe in creative problem solving. We have the technical muscle, agility and market understanding to craft ideas into relevant and future proofed solutions. The possibilities that technology and the digital world can provide us are endless.

Virtual Forge: Imagination realised.

We do Development

Development

The way we consume digital technology is constantly evolving. At The Virtual Forge, we abide by the maxim “Never stand still”.

Interconnected and Internet-enabled devices are bringing the web into every facet of our lives, from phones and tablets to fridges and lights. We are seeing exponential growth in new technologies and methodologies, to cater to a growing diversity of applications. Our challenge as developers is to stay ahead of the game. This is an exciting time for the digital world, and the opportunity for digital innovation is more than ever.

We foster an environment where our development teams can learn new skills, redefine best practice and adapt to the emergence of new technologies. We continually push ourselves to be at the fore-front of innovation, so that we can offer the most appropriate, tailored and future-proofed solution for you.

We do Consultancy

Consultancy

The Virtual Forge offers a range of consultancy products with our pool of experts, many of who have more than 20 years experience in their respective industries. Sometimes these consultancies are ongoing over a period of months, reviews of existing systems, discussions about possible solutions, presentations of technology, which could be a good fit. Sometimes, they are a single day with key stakeholders.

The Consultancy package and dedicated consultants will be carefully selected in advance with you, as well as a predefined list of aims and results to ensure that you get the best out of your time and that we understand what you need from us.

We do Design

Design

We are a creative communications agency specialising in brilliant design ideas for websites and mobile applications. We believe in integrating great user experience into everything we build, as these two key features are fundamental to the user journey and will maximise the success of our clients’ visions.

Building clever tools and powerful systems is all very well, but we want to engage users, we want to bring people in and we want to help them love the experience. Design is part of the development process and we take it very seriously; every function of a tool or app has to be easy to understand, easy to reach and a pleasure to use.
