Two of London’s leading digital firms, Digital Echidna and Resolution Interactive Media (ResIM), have entered into a strategic partnership to combine their respective areas of expertise. This targeted approach for future project acquisition and development will expand the impact and performance of the Forest City’s technology sector.
The strategic partnership is a natural extension of the work the companies have done and brings together the best in open source technology and human-centred design. Both companies were founded in London and share a commitment to supporting and developing the local community.
Digital Echidna (echidna.ca) has earned a reputation as one of Canada’s leading experts in development on the Drupal content management system. ResIM (res.im) is an industry leader in User Experience research, design, and consulting.
“In many ways we’re formalizing a structure that’s worked well for us in the recent past,” explained Andrew McClenaghan, owner of Digital Echidna, pointing to projects such as the recently launched Fanshawe College website as an example. “As we grow in size and attract increasingly larger, enterprise-level clients, we recognize the importance of providing clients with elite-level expertise.
“Being all things to all people can be resource intensive and counter-productive. In my experience, the full-service agency model is incapable of keeping up with the depth and breadth of technology in today’s fast-paced environment. This partnership is about combining expertise to enable both companies to deliver premium solutions for clients that are growing in scope and demands.”
“This is a reflection of the talent and work that’s present right here in London” added Jonathan Kochis, owner of ResIM. “We’re at our best when solving complex problems for the customers of large, multi-audience organizations. These organizations often stand to benefit from the expertise that Digital Echidna has with Drupal development and content management strategies. In return, we know Digital Echidna values our UX background and commitment to research and design.”
Digital Echidna is a web design and digital agency that focuses on developing large-scale websites on the Drupal content management system. It has a strong presence in the educational, medical, and government and public sector markets, and counts Dartmouth College, London Health Sciences Centre, Fanshawe College, TVOntario, and Angie’s List amongst its clients.
ResIM is dedicated to creating positive, human-focused outcomes through useful, usable, and beautiful software and services. The company works in numerous verticals including technology, manufacturing, education, and healthcare for clients like 3M Canada, StarTech.com, and the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology.
