At Brand Logo, we approach business with a new mindset

Our commitmentWe understand customers want honest, capable and agile talent, delivering meaningful, sustainable and cost effective outcomes. We’ve also seen how traditional IT offerings can fall short, resulting in client disempowerment and vendor lock-in.

Technical ideaWe created Taptu to disrupt this model, ensuring any business can achieve its potential with access to quality, tailored IT advice and services. We’ve done away with dedicated sales people and re-invented the classical IT consultant as a dynamic group of personally accountable, semi-autonomous, on-tap specialists, matching the ebb and flow of your business.

Partnership This means we’re more authentic and accurate when proposing solutions, as well as being more effective and flexible when delivering outcomes. We can augment your strategic, IT, project and operational resources to form hybrid teams, imparting skills and building internal capability – rather than just delivering a black-boxed outcome.

Customer sizing ​This also means we’re better equipped to help businesses of any size… from a start-up wanting to innovate and scale, through to a large Government department wanting to modernise and optimise.

Our Story

Imagine people, process and technology outcomes improving organically, rather than in costly and disruptive steps. Imagine applying the best resources for a given problem and blending resourcing models without being led into full service contracts.

We believe you can.

Having observed the strengths and weakness of consultants, contractors and employees first-hand over a number of years, we set out to create a service that draws on the strengths of each, uniting all three approaches and leaving behind traditional weaknesses.

As a result, we’ve created something unique: A boutique technology / consulting business, designed around you – so you can tap into a team of great people, to get outstanding results, right when you need us.

Our favourite client stories so far

Re-inventing South Australia's Strategic Decision-Making, Policy and Governance

The Department of the Premier and Cabinet needed to replace an outdated, restrictive and costly workflow management system, which was used to manage all of the decision-making processes of the Cabinet of South Australia and the Governor of South Australia.

How we approached the solution

Working closely with SMEs from DPC’s Cabinet Office and ICT Services, Taptu and Head Full of Heart architected, designed, developed and delivered SHRIKE, a bespoke PaaS solution. SHRIKE was designed to support complex multi-path workflows, role-based access across all South Australian State Government Agencies, and the secure management of classified documents, through a modern and intuitive user interface.

What was achieved

SHRIKE has revolutionised the management of Cabinet Business, creating efficiencies that directly support strategic decision-making processes at the highest levels of Government. Further, the SHRIKE platform has dramatically reduced hosting costs whilst improving security and data quality.

Creating and commercialising a SaaS platform for cross business communication

A veteran of the construction industry, Corston approached us to build a custom piece of commercial software to improve the communication between third parties on projects, with a focus on producing a simple and relatable product for the target market.

How we approached the solution

We approached the task with a hybrid team of IT professionals who listened to Corston’s idea and took the concept from a whiteboard to a finished piece of commercial software. We created a brand new user interface design to craft a unique user experience, and we were able to produce an effective solution that allowed for online communication threads within digital projects. This software enabled users to optimise their work practices by providing a new way to share information between multiple teams across different ventures.

What was achieved

Through their engagement with Taptu, Corston was able to directly impact the commercial market of the construction industry with the creation of a customised Software as a Service with a recognisable visual design. Additionally, the undertaking empowered young local professionals, and contributed towards South Australia's software sector.

Building a platform for the world's wellbeing measurement

The Wellbeing and Resilience Centre (WRC) has a big vision: to increase the wellbeing and resilience of people in everyday life, for life. In 2015, they set out to create a sturdy, repeatable, scientifically validated and affordable approach to build psychological health, wellbeing and resilience at scale. Equipping people to live their best life possible.

How we approached the solution

Working closely, we set out to understand the team and their vision deeply. We transformed this understanding into a business capability model and digital strategy. Then authored their first successful digital platform commercialisation grant. Leveraging this success, we then embarked on a 2 year journey to build and launch a technology platform to orchestrate and deliver their vision to the world.

What was achieved

Currently in limited public preview, Complete Mental Health is a world first. A globally scalable cloud platform built on Azure, bringing together commercial, scientific and altruistic interests. Individuals, organisations, wellbeing providers and researchers all integrated into a singular online ecosystem of social change. We are grateful for their trust, and immensely proud of the outcome we achieved together.
