Mobile Jazz and Medtronic

We started working with Medtronic in January 2015 on a small web project. Over the past year our relationship has gone from strength to strength, we now maintain more than 20 websites worldwide, have designed and developed several brand new sites, created multiple email campaigns and are now exploring into the realm of apps.

Medtronic is a world leader in healthcare. Their innovations are saving millions of lives all over the globe, words just can’t describe how honoured we are to work with them. We’ve visited their European headquarters in Switzerland three times over the past few months, always arriving to a warm welcome from an incredibly friendly and caring team. We can see a long lasting and fulfilling relationship ahead with Medtronic and are looking forward to what’s to come.

Now I use it all day, every day, and sometimes it still shocks me how applying this simple method can drastically improve my productivity.

Apple Launches New iPad Pro

In March, Apple revealed it’s new iPad Pro 9.7” tablet, a downsize of their 12.9” iPad Pro and inline with the size of previous iPads.

The new iPad Pro 9.7” has the same appearance, finish and thickness as the iPad Air 2, but the new edition outshines every model when it comes to battery live – boasting 10 hours of usage.

The greatest feature of this new iPad though is it’s compatibility with the new Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard. These new exciting tools present us with great opportunities for the future (we’ve already got one and it’s fantastic).

If you own a website or mobile app, we suggest you test it on the new iPad Pro’s to ensure compatibility. If you need a hand with this, we can help.
