We Are Nerd Marines!
For close to a decade, Elephant Ventures has been assisting our non-technical agency partners by providing strong, practical foundations behind their award-winning, visionary productions.
Elephant Ventures understands that most design driven enterprises will, at some point, need to leverage a technology partner to deliver the sophisticated customer interactions that drive modern businesses. Together with our agency creative staff, we strike a balance between the capabilities of technology and the impact of design -- bringing brilliant solutions to life.
We augment internal agency teams, corporate enterprises, and end-client technologists to get the job done. Our track record includes projects that involve technical complexity around legacy system integration, bleeding edge implementations and performance optimization. We help our partners battle tight budgets, moving-target scopes or impossible timeframes, and have helped agencies both large and small deliver fully on their creative vision and to meet client expectations.
Social media. Collaboration. Co-creation. These are the platforms that are transforming your markets today. The empowered consumer is more demanding and is quick to abandon existing brand relationships in pursuit of experiences that serve (and exceed) their needs. The Elephant Ventures User Experience practice focuses on building products and services that inform, enable and delight your customers. Our goal-driven, user-centered approach puts the customer at the center of interaction design, and creates truly remarkable experiences that drive loyalty and stimulate positive perception around your brands.
We are not a company of developers. We are a team of engineers.
Elephant Ventures can help you enhance or accelerate your software development capabilities. We have worked with virtually every mission-critical technology being used today, both new and legacy, including cutting-edge capabilities in UX, Web, Social and Mobile. Our staff is made up of engineers who can quickly understand the inner workings of the most complex systems and requirements and can rapidly build out robust functionality for you. We also have the extensive analytic and algorithmic experience that power Big Data initiatives. We can help you with data projects ranging from the absurdly complex to the broadly mundane.
If you are having technology performance related issues, we have a unique track record in helping our customers successfully tune their infrastructure to improve overall performance. Results in the 1000X-10,000X improvement are not uncommon for our engineers to achieve. We can help with code refactoring, database tuning, server configuration optimizations, network infrastructure assessments and configuration tuning for maximum throughput.
