How we build the future

In 2010, when we founded Rocksauce Studios, there was no one doing what we did. Companies in our space were less interested in creating user-friendly, compelling product to captivate audiences. Most of these companies focused on creating quick “me too” applications, with little-to-no branding, terrible UX/UI design, and no engaging reason to develop brand loyalty or to keep users coming back.

But we saw that the brands that were rising to the top – Airbnb, Instagram, Twitter, etc – were companies that didn’t just solve a problem, but solved a problem in a unique way. Enterprise software was, and in many cases still is, hard to navigate, difficult to use, and a chore to deploy. We knew there was a better way: focus on giving users something to come back for.

How we build the future

In 2010, when we founded Rocksauce Studios, there was no one doing what we did. Companies in our space were less interested in creating user-friendly, compelling product to captivate audiences. Most of these companies focused on creating quick “me too” applications, with little-to-no branding, terrible UX/UI design, and no engaging reason to develop brand loyalty or to keep users coming back.

But we saw that the brands that were rising to the top – Airbnb, Instagram, Twitter, etc – were companies that didn’t just solve a problem, but solved a problem in a unique way. Enterprise software was, and in many cases still is, hard to navigate, difficult to use, and a chore to deploy. We knew there was a better way: focus on giving users something to come back for.

From the earliest days of the company, we refused to mimic what a competitor was doing. Our goal has been to always research what the users on the ground are looking for, and dissect the problem from their perspective. We don’t come at problems with a solution in mind but create a solution based on the best way to tackle the issue.

So, our goal has, and remains, to build software that stands-up next to the biggest platforms out there. For Enterprise clients, we bring that commercial grade sensibility, because we know that your audience has expectations that internal software should work as well as Facebook or Instagram. Entrepreneurs know that they get an honest company, that will be up front when an idea feels old or tired, and will work to help them keep their budgets in scope, as the siren call of the scope creep calls to them.

We’re passionate about what we do, because we live and breathe this stuff. That’s how we build the future.
