This first step in the process is to arrange a discovery exercise with us. The discovery process consists of a number of sessions to understand your business requirements.

  • Strategic
    A session with the businesses strategic stakeholders to understand the wider commercial and business requirements
  • Tactical
    Sessions focused with the functional leads for each area of the business (finance, operations, sales and marketing etc) to understand the key business processes and the software currently in place and their day-to-day requirements
  • Observations
    In situ observations with your team members, understanding the “as is” processes
  • Technical
    We will develop an understanding of the technical facets or dependencies which are currently in place.


We’ll provide an impartial assessment, identify your gaps and create a recommendations and requirements report written in digestible plain English.

Our report will outline the suggested software applications to fulfil the business requirements. Our recommendations may include utilising off the shelf packages, bespoke developments and any required system integrations.

Subsequently, you can implement the recommendations yourselves or continue to work with us to manage the procurement and implementation process.

Frequently asked questions

Below is a list of queries that we often get asked when initially speaking to clients. If you don’t find the question that is relevant to you then please contact us and we would be happy to answer.


Will we be stuck with you moving forward?

No, our clients are under no obligation to stay with us, our projects are designed so that they can be picked up by another competent Microsoft technologies developer or development house.  Our experience shows that our clients enter into a true partnership with us, ensuring that our relationships are continuous.

Who will I be dealing with?

You will have a single dedicated point of contact from our product team who will work with you for the whole project.

How will you keep me informed throughout the project

We guarantee to be transparent and honest in our approach, this means we’ll keep you fully informed if we identify risk to the project, this could be a change in requirement, missing information, creep or slippage.

Once your project is underway you’ll be set up with access to our online project management software which will allow you to keep track of progress and access the project prototype and documentation. Messaging and questions are sent through it, providing one central place where all communication about the project is held. During the development the product team will be in regular communication and at the end of every sprint cycle or development phase you will be invite for a presentation of the work produced.

How much of my time and my teams time will you need?

Transformative projects are a true partnership between our businesses. You should be prepared to invest the amount of time it takes to deliver the result your business requires.

If you are embarking on a project across multiple departments and functions of your business you will need to ensure the relevant stakeholders have visibility of the project from the on-set and brief them on your expectations.

You’ll need to appoint a project sponsor from your organisation, this is the person responsible for leading the project and ultimately has the final say on your requirement.

"I approached IO Studios to create some software and the whole project from proposal to completion was done in 6 weeks.  An amazing turnaround.  Not only that, it then took them just 3 more weeks to create a phase two which I only gave them just as the main project was completed.  The team are incredibly responsive and they understood exactly what I was looking to achieve."
