Our History


A unique heritage

We trace our corporate history back to the 1900’s when technological innovation was expressed in very different forms, yet was based around the same principles we embrace today. Over the decades our company has evolved as technologies have been invented. We’ve been at the forefront of many of these changes, inventing and patenting a wide variety of devices.

And while the computing technology at the heart of today’s applications is very different from those of the past, as you’ll see from the examples below there are striking similarities in the approaches across the decades. We call these our obsessions:


An obsession with precision
Luxury timepieces for royalty

Nothing says precision like a hand crafted watch, and we were busy making the best for the rich and famous in Europe. With a reputation for excellence we held the Royal Warrant and employed staff dedicated to looking after the timepieces in Buckingham Palace for the British Royal Family.

Today our software echoes that precision, with millions of unseen lines of code working together in perfect synchrony to deliver exacting results every day throughout the world.


An obsession with speed
Inventing the speedometer

Speed.  Even in the early days of motoring, people were obsessed with speed (even though, by today’s standards they weren’t going very fast!)  In fact, our clients were so keen to find out just how quickly they were going we needed to help. We rose to the challenge, and invented the speedometer.

Today the world moves faster, but we are still obsessed with measuring speed, and making things work faster. So on every webpage we deliver, we measure how many milliseconds it took to construct, and we spend countless hours striving to make them even faster.


An obsession with reliability
Mission-critical equipment

There are some times when you really don’t want things to go wrong – and in 1919 when Alcock and Brown made their historic non-stop crossing of the Atlantic in a Vickers Vimy biplane, they chose our magnetos to keep their Rolls Royce engines running.

Today we honor that trust in our systems, and implement protocols to trace and eliminate bugs and issues at source. Reliability is an obsession we’re proud of.
