Tired of fitting your research needs into a non-custom product? No problem! We have assembled a team of software developers, UX specialists, graphic designers and project managers working in concert to create what you need. Starting with user inquiry and high-fidelity design prototypes, we code, test, and iterate until a final product is ready to be launched. With a robust development ‘stack’ (PHP, Laravel, Mariadb) and hosting services through Lineberger Bioinformatics Group, we build secure and dependable products. Our expertise includes pulling from multiple data sources (including wearables and sensors), tailored messaging via text, email, or app notifications, and tying it all together with a polished, branded look to meet your research goals.
