Founded in 1996 and still led by the same management team over 20 years later, Absol has excelled through the peaks and troughs of the dotcom era.

Equity is held amongst management and staff who share a marked passion for the company and its overall vision.

Development methodology

SCRUM and Agile - It aims to make projects more effective by defining the roles of team members and by providing a specific way of organising the workload - over a series of short development cycles, "sprints" or phases. Scrum teams attempt to build a deliverable (properly tested) solution feature increment - with every iteration. Using Slick Agile as our guiding principle, we are able to provide you with a functional solution in a considerably shorter time-frame, while also reducing the overall development costs. It is an iterative process that allows for adjustments and updates to the overall project plan 

Benefits of our approach:
 
  • Faster turnaround
    We are able to provide our users with functioning solutions at a much faster pace than using traditional design, development and practices.
  • Testing and feedback
    The feedback and testing loop between our team and the client ensure any unforeseen issues can be addressed quickly.
  • Prioritise features
    The highest priority items are identified and completed first, so delivery is not held up by items that are of lesser priority.
  • Minimise scope creep
    The iterative process allows for the active adjustment of smaller new requirements.
  • High-value delivery
    The focus remains on delivering features that add the most value to your business while eliminating features that provide little value but add significant costs to the project.
