with our clients
The concept of co-creation is at the heart of what we do. With experience, we've learned that the closer we work with our clients, the better the results - guaranteed. Our senior staff are involved at every step of a project, not just the initial pitch. The design and development on our projects is iterative. We engage our clients at every step of the project, gritty or otherwise, in the same way that we're exposed to their challenges. We will make something great, together.
Industrial's approach to collaborative working sessions was key to the successful launch of the new CADTH.ca website. We worked directly with the Industrial team to form a cohesive project team; the results were fantastic!
