Digital transformation is hard, particularly for large organizations.
They often face significant internal challenges — conflicting agendas, organizational inertia, legacy assets and technology, requirements and regulations, etc — as well as challenges in developing the digital solution itself — balancing user and business objectives, applying modern UX, design and development approaches, building scalable tech platforms, establishing authoring models, producing content, testing etc.
We started VShift specifically to work with large-scale brands, helping them overcome these unique challenges in order to deliver better digital experiences to their customers — and more business value to their company. Our agency combines strategy, creative and technology services with a high-touch, hands-on consultative approach to help solve our client’s biggest challenges.
At VShift, we draw the strong, clear connections between objectives, strategies and tactics that are necessary to drive real, measurable results in a rapidly changing digital world.
We provide a variety of digital services including brand development, design and user experience, technology strategy and development, and communications and content strategy.
We are a flat organization where people come together to work on projects.
We don’t believe that adding structure is necessarily the path to success. Some structure is good; other structure just gets in the way. We have designed our organization to allow for variability and innovation in how work is conducted and delivered. We make tools and processes available where they help. We don’t have a lot of rules.
Digital is very complex industry that is changing faster than any industry has ever changed. We can’t be sitting around hoping our people pull it out (though they always do). Our solution is to hire high-performing people who share our values and are able to adapt to new ways of doing things.
