Technology Through Collaboration


We develop software solutions that transform how our clients do business, through digital expertise, human experience, and unparalleled efficiency. We’re more than just software.

We Do More Than Just Solve The Technical Problem

+

We see how human challenges arise in the creation, implementation, and deployment of digital technologies. We solve for these human problems as well. Our offerings are designed to bring the best technical solutions and combine them with an unprecedented level of complexity management expertise.

Meet Our Team

+

For the last 16 years, we’ve been solving some of the deepest and most complicated technical challenges facing our clients. We bring powerful tools to custom software development, but we also understand that there is no technology without humans to design, build, and implement it.

Extreme Alignment is the management framework we use to empower our B2B services collaboration, and Elastic Delivery is how we implement our work in uniquely iterative and dynamic ways to drive our clients to success.

Our Work

Spark DSG

Website Development

S&F handles 85% of Spark’s total development work. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the two companies worked very fast to successfully design and develop a site for a client who makes ventilators, urgently needed during the crisis. The work allowed the ventilators to get to the market faster to fill the need for them. As this agency continues to grow, its deliberately collaborative partnership with S&F continues to mature and expand. Founded in 2011, Spark DGS is a design agency based in Doylestown, PA.

What Makes Us Different

76 Marketing and Advertising final ai

/ Digital Expertise

We are experts in Digital Experience [product innovation and user experience], Digital Organization [Agile frameworks and change management], and Digital Execution [meeting company and market demands]. 

/ Human Experience

We understand humans as well as we understand technology. That means we offer more than outsourced services — we offer teams that act like part of your organization. 

/ Unparalleled Efficiency

By focusing on both the people and the technology as equally vital for success, we provide scalable solutions. We pass along institutional knowledge as our teams scale up or down with demand, adapt to real-world demands in real-time, and offer an unparalleled streamlining of services.

We are Deliberately Developmental Organization [DDO]

Our TOaaS and human experience are fueled by an overt understanding that humans grow and change the same way technology does — with care and awareness. All our relationships are fluid, always-improving ones. We use tools such as Developmental Sprint®, a human technology designed and perfected by decades of Harvard research to guide our [r]evolutionary project management process. 

How We Work

Extreme Alignment

In outsourcing, too much is lost in translation when two or more organizations collaborate. We take deliberate steps ensure our teams are so aligned they feel like a single, in-house team. This saves time, preserves knowledge, creates a collaborative working space, and reduces miscomminications. We implement best practices through Scrum, Frequent Feedback, Testing, Developmental Work, and value-based pricing.

Elastic Delivery

Get the right people doing the right work at the right time. This keeps costs down, the project scope focused, and our team members accountable for high-value deliverables. We work with you, not for you, and we’ll build a team that scales up and down as needed without you needing to manage the process.

Insights

Our job is to stay on top of rapidly moving technology, so we can offer the best and smartest solutions for our clients. Yet technology is merely a reflection of the deeper complexity we face in the 21st century. To stay ahead, leaders have to grow beyond where they are today and begin to think differently about tomorrow. Sometimes, we write about that.

By far the best development company I've ever worked with — and I've worked with dozens. They are hands-on, precise, patient, highly-skilled, and actually care about what they are building. It's not a contract for them, they join in as if they are official members of your team.
