Today, it’s with great excitement that I’m announcing igNew has officially changed it’s name to Slingshot. For us, this is the culmination of a 12 year journey that’s let us see a great many things and experience all of what software development has to offer. And not just the good, but the great, the bad, and the ugly as well.   

We’ve learned a lot through our own experiences and the experiences of our clients, and with that learning, we’ve evolved.   

However, some things haven’t changed. igNew humbly began with us as kids just out of college dedicated to being the best at building software. That drive, and that mission, still stands today.  We still believe in great culture and great passion, and hiring exceptional people and giving them the tools and freedom to do their job well. And most importantly, we still define success as building things that have profound impact for our clients.

Our clients put tremendous trust in us.  They make big moves, undertake bold initiatives, and risk a lot when undertaking projects.  We’ve always tempered those risks and guided clients by our own demand to be the best. But being the best is a journey. It’s a constant evolution.  We saw the need to innovate within ourselves, and that innovation for us means great things for you.

We’ve modernized our Lean methodology and process to include design as an integral step in what we build.  And we leverage design to test ideas with in field interviews, prototype development, and user testing.  We do this to make sure what you’ve entrusted us to build will have the impact that’s desired.

Our build step is led by our same great team of developers that has been us with for years.  However, in the last two years we recognize Cloud as a key to building solutions that are more scalable, more powerful, more fault tolerant, and more flexible.  

All of this is brought together through great process.  Ours is a process that ties together the cross disciplinary minds of strategy, design, development, and Cloud expertise. The result is an ability to help clients avoid pitfalls early on and target your investments in technology with absolute precision.

As we took on these changes, we figured a change of scenery that spoke to our new brand was in order. Slingshot recently moved into a space that is more conducive to the collaboration of our multi-disciplinary teams.  It’s fun, and make no mistake, we have the coolest office sign in all of Louisville.

In the coming days, you will receive an invitation to join us for a celebration of our new brand, our new space, and our new people. Most importantly, this is a celebration of our transformation to better serve you, our client.

Your trust in us demands we innovate, it demands our learning is continuous and I’m happy to say we recognize and share the same demands of ourselves.

We hope you’ll join us on November 2 to come see what we’re doing, meet our team and check out our space.  In the meantime, follow us on facebook and Twitter.

Slingshot has arrived.  Let’s do bold things together.
