Bring your business online with design‑driven digital acceleration

We live in a fast-paced world. To survive, businesses have to adapt to a changing environment. For local businesses, that often requires technical and design expertise that’s difficult to build in-house.

At thoughtbot, we’ve spent 17 years building reliable, intuitive web products and services for local businesses, enabling them to adapt and thrive in a changing environment.

Let’s accelerate your digital transformation

Working together

A technology partner you can trust

Bakeries, yoga instructors, car dealerships — there are thousands of great businesses trying to adapt to a world where people spend their time online. But how do you go from croissants to clicks? You need a technology partner you can trust.

thoughtbot will work with you to:

  • Understand what makes your business great
  • Transition your products & services online
  • Build a reliable, intuitive website your customers will trust

Testimonial from Hunter Gorham

I was not a tech person and design and development were going to be a key part of building the business. We considered every kind of partner—from big consultancies like Accenture to very small operations. We wanted the best of both.

Creating your digital product

Seamlessly migrate your business online

How do you sell haircuts on the web? For many local businesses, who depend on walk-in traffic, moving online requires creativity and innovation. thoughtbot can work with you to:

  • Identify your core value proposition
  • Rapidly build, test and validate ideas
  • Manage your customers and keep their data secure

User-centered design

Make your customers feel at home

  • Understand what’s important to your customers
  • Communicate your values to your customers
  • Discover new customers beyond the reach of brick-and-mortar retail
