“We are passionate about the potential of a truly modern, well architectured digital stack to support continuous innovation and feature roll-out.  Working with TELUS Digital, who share that vision, is a genuine pleasure.”

The Results

TELUS Digital now experiences a 30-40% reduction in time-to-market for apps.

We’re working to strengthen the digital presence of the company with a design system and infrastructure that greatly increases productivity while reducing overall development time.

The new design and cross-platform development platforms and practices are now being adopted across the TELUS group and will be rolled out to new brands and industries.

Productivity and innovation is greatly increased across both design and development teams who can now focus on business outcomes rather than on the underlying technology.
