The Royal Bank of Scotland is one of the reasons for Pogo Studio's success. When the business first started in 2016, we were accepted into the accelerator (then known as Entrepreneurial Spark), to help us shape and grow the business. It is through that relationship with the bank, and the people we met there, that we were able to pitch for and win the agile playbook app. This app was to be used to coach bank staff about how to apply the agile methodology to their projects and ways of thinking.View full case study
From the moment we met the Pogo team, we knew they shared our passion for achieving social change. Working with them on our app was a fabulous experience and we could not be happier with the results.

Working with Pogo Studio has transformed the way that the award is delivered. The website has received consistently positive feedback from our users who appreciate its engaging, user-friendly interface that is accessible, secure and functional. As well as development, Pogo have been excellent in supporting training for staff on using the website and are always quick to make changes to the platform as suggested by our team and our users.
Due to the website’s success, we are starting a new development project to automate some of our administrative processes using the platform, and I look forward to seeing continued success of the website with Pogo’s support.

"As part of a organisational shift in the way we work and introducing agile across the business, we wanted create a mobile first web application which we could share with our colleagues. We wanted the web app to provide articles/guides and videos which we could share with our business colleagues as a means of providing support and information at the right time. Even now, when we decided to optimised for desktop, they have provided expert support, guidance and quick delivery. All of which suited our needs perfectly as we wanted to deliver incrementally and learn fast from our end users. I can’t recommend them highly enough."
"Our company had undergone a project to restructure our brand architecture and create a new brand style. This needed to be reflected on our existing website in the most cost and time efficient way – to deliver the impact of a rebrand, but without building a new site. The two key elements of this were to reconfigure the site navigation to be consistent with the new brand architecture, and to reskin the site so that it demonstrated the new brand style. The project was complex, with different stakeholders involved, and tight timescales to deliver against. Pogo took the complications in their stride and managed to adapt to the moving goalposts. The website has received very positive feedback, and Pogo have also been available for ongoing snags as we start to work with the new site."

"Pogo provided GUI designs for Version 4 of our business software "Eikos", a web-based application for project management in the oil and gas industry. We selected Pogo after an extensive UK-wide search; it was clear to us that our project was very demanding for any of the companies on our ITT. Pogo won our order with a high quality proposal, backed up with a first pass at redesigning one of our screens. The final results from the project are first class and have fully met our requirements. The deliverables included multiple new screens supported with HTML and CSS. Building on such an established design was demanding because we needed to balance familiarity with significant GUI improvements and technical constraints. Pogo have delivered an excellent piece of work, we will be returning to them with our next project and can recommend them to others."
