Who We Are
Rockpool brings together the best and the brightest to provide you with a flexible and agile IT partner, offering a range of IT consultancy services.
Brighton-based, our professional team has a wealth of experience, so you can be assured that your IT project is in the best possible hands.
Whether you need an enterprise-scale software system, a responsive web app, or the perfect development team, we can help.
What We Do
Creating innovative software solutions is what we do best, and we have years of experience when it comes to designing and building bespoke systems.
We can help with every aspect of software development and work across the entire technology stack, including web, CMS, mobile, databases and enterprise applications.
Quality is at the heart of every piece of software we build, with faultless architecture and thorough documentation, to ensure a system that really stands the test of time.
We work in partnership with you to address any short term hiring need caused by a new project, challenging timescales or lack of an in-house skill.
We are well connected and know where to find the skills when you need them.
We work hard to keep that talent pool relevant whether the requirement is for a single specialist or an entire team.
We’re well connected, with a firm grasp of the skills and experience that our clients need.
Our network is extensive and kept current utilising mainstream practices including LinkedIn as well as less exploited methods such as headhunts, meetups and networking events.
We are fully integrated with our Consultancy and Software Development team, resourcing our projects for a variety of clients. This experience gives us an edge when delivering to our recruitment clients.
Retaining knowledge of your systems in house is crucial to your ongoing success, but at the same time you need to augment your resources to keep up with demand for new features.
Our dedicated team will become an integral part of your resources and will understand your systems as well as your own people. And they won’t disappear when you most need them, as we will always be there to keep the team going for you.
Programme Inception & Roadmap
Ongoing sustainable delivery of solutions to support your business can make the difference between success and failure.
If you are not yet along that road, we can help you start the journey. If you are at a crossroads and are not sure how to proceed, we can map out the way for you.
Our expert consultants will ensure your IT programmes are aligned with your business objectives and designed to deliver value to your stakeholders fast and reliably.
Project and Programme Management
Our flexible approach to project management ensures we adapt to meet your needs; our experience using multiple methodologies and processes means we can tailor our delivery approach around your requirements.
Communication is key to successful delivery, we are passionate about involving stakeholders at all levels and ensuring everyone shares in the success of the project.
Project Recovery and Health Check
If you have a project that isn’t quite going to plan, we have the knowledge (and scars) to help get things back on track.
Perhaps you’re having trouble with communication, or your deadline keeps moving? In any case we’ve probably been there before, and can help to give your team the boost and support they need.
Agile and Lean Consultancy
Making the transition from waterfall to agile is a big cultural shift but the rewards are more than worth the pain.
Our experience of applying agile and lean, in many different domains and contexts, means we are perfectly placed to advise you on organisation, practices and tools.
We can provide coaching and mentoring for your people if they are new to the game, as well as embedding agile teams within your organisations to transfer knowledge on-the-job.
Audits are invaluable for providing a high-level overview of your business, enabling you to identify weaknesses and implement changes that deliver tangible results.
If you’re struggling to take a step back, then our team can help. We can provide detailed analysis of your technology and processes, and help to implement small changes that often make a big difference.
Process and Domain Modelling
“A picture is worth a thousand words” may be commonplace but it is never as relevant as in our business.
Models visualise problems and solutions, facilitating communication between business and IT.
In collaboration with you, we build models that provide a stable map to support your business and IT journeys.
Who We Work With
Whether we are working with an international banking institution or a boutique digital agency, our goal is the same.
We work collaboratively with you to establish how best we can add value to your business and deliver tangible results.
