Scott Logic

Scott Logic

At Scott Logic, we transform our clients’ organisations by engineering innovative, bespoke software solutions that drive measurable value, whilst also enhancing the core strengths of their technology delivery capability.

At the heart of our way of working is the conviction that good service design solves problems, delivers on user needs, and applies not only to front-end software design but also to back-end data processing systems. That’s why we encourage clients to start by understanding user needs in order to guide all problem solving, and to provide the evidence you require to challenge the status quo.

We integrate user research and service design into the whole design and development process – a process which is iterative and incremental. Our designs evolve as additional insights become available, meaning that through collaboration, inspection and iteration, we produce service design solutions that are as innovative as they are user-centred.
