Different how? For one SpikyFruit is a small collective by choice. We work with an intimate group of skilled people, most of which have ties to the open source world.
Many of them are also location indifferent professionals, or digital nomads if you like. We do meet face to face, but the internet is our true office.
This modern way of working has many advantages. It introduces new technologies as they emerge, and it brings an evolving network of skill, experience and knowledge. But without the overhead and social headaches of employing that talent in-house, which you will notice in our fees.
Secondly we believe you should hold the keys to your own castle. If we create a product, tailor-made for your company, it is your product. We would like you to stay with us because you are happy and want to do so, not because we vendor-locked you in a corner. Your freedom and continuity is important to us.
We realize this might be somewhat different from other companies you have dealt with, especially if coming from the more traditional corporate world. But make no mistake, in the end it is all just knowledge, code & SLA's - no tree-hugging involved. Nerds & geeks? Certainly. But hippies? Absolutely not.
We invite you to look at our track record, which has been going strong for almost two decades. Speak to our clients, look at our results. You will see this way of doing things is actually working very well for all parties involved.
Useful, modern and tailored solutions, with fast roll-out. Based on solid choices which guarantee freedom and continuity for your company.
We think that's a pretty sweet deal, but then again, we might be biased on that one.
