Macadamian cover


Macadamian is unique in its ability to help clients determine what the right software product will be, and help them develop it right. To help our clients build market-ready products, we provide product creation strategy, usability and user interface design, and software development services. We believe that the secret to developing successful products is having a seamless, proven process that puts equal emphasis on understanding your customers, user experience, visual design, software development, and quality. We’re unique because:

* Unlike traditional outsourcing companies, we don’t just follow a specification, or provide you with manpower that needs to be managed – we’re a strategic consultancy that can start with your idea and transform it into a market-ready software product.

* Unlike traditional design firms, we can tackle your project from start to finish. We involve user experience designers and software architects from day one –shrinking development cycles, tightening the feedback loop and maintaining high quality through the entire product development lifecycle.

* We help you hone the value proposition of a product idea and translate it into a market-ready product strategy.

* We uncover user needs to create usable products and offer a meaningful user experience.

* Our agile development techniques and project management best practices deliver high-quality products on time – with no surprises.


* Experience and Expertise*

Founded in 1997, we provide a complete range of user experience design and software development services to clients throughout North America, including Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, Boston, Dallas and San Jose.
