Uncover your Competitive Edge with Playtime

Commodity
Business Process

Where possible, support commodity business processes with off-the-shelf SaaS based applications. This will then allow you to invest in what differentiates, enhances and grows your organisation. Commodity business processes are operational to your business.

Core
Business Process

Most organisations are in this stage of their digital transformation journey.

Stage 1: Re-host
The organisation has re-hosted their core workloads into the Cloud through Lift-and-shift or a migration.

Stage 2: Re-factor
As part of the migration process or after, core workloads have been refactored within the constraints of the legacy or Cloud environment.

Competitive Edge

This is where you want to be.

You need to invest in what gives you the edge, in order to position your business ahead of the competition.

Modernising  of critical complex applications whether it be:

  • Platform,
  • Security,
  • Automated Monitoring,
  • Scale up or out
  • Day 2 operations

Frees you up to concentrate on innovation and solving strategic business challenges.

We Come Prepared.

Building new secure, fault tolerant and highly distributed software is becoming more and more complex. We all know that building these types of software systems is a non-trivial task.

You are never ‘starting from the beginning’ when you’re working with Playtime, every solution that we deliver is built from a solid baseline of knowledge, expertise, experience, and leverages cutting edge technology to drive the optimal customer outcome. We have best-practice frameworks and standardised development engines in place, for confidence and assurance in every build.

Experience Matters

In a market saturated with technology service providers, experience matters.

We have the wisdom of hard lessons learned and the knowledge of outstanding results. Experience has shown us that it’s not just about understanding the ‘what’, but understanding the ‘why’ – “Why are we taking this approach?” and “Why is this the best strategy?”

Understanding technology, business functions, and organisational change is difficult. IT and business inherently speak different languages, but through experience we can bridge the gap to ensure only success at the end of the day.

PlaytimeX - Application Framework

The PlayTimeX Application Framework is a comprehensive set of code libraries and design approaches that streamline any development process by supercharging the Microsoft .NET Core and Angular frameworks. It provides all of the support required to ensure you don’t get bogged down in the technical details so you can focus on the rest of the functional aspects of the system. It includes a set of Presentation, API and Data Access support services, database and integration hooks, communication layers and the ability to configure, monitor, and control the system.

It can be deployed on premise, or in the cloud, using any of the major cloud providers, such as Azure, AWS, Google, IBM, and more.

Rather than spend client’s money and time on these important services we start designing and building business functionality from day one and our clients love that.

Playtime Squad Model

A Playtime Squad, is a cross-functional team of experts aligned to a customer, and the business outcome. This ensures that we focus on the ‘Why’ (strategic objectives)  vs. the ‘What’ (technology features and functionality), of each solution that we deliver.

Members of the Squad offer a unique perspective, to ensure we take into consideration both technical and non-technical perspectives.

Why is this effective?

  • Efficient communication and collaboration
  • Ensures a holistic approach to every project
  • Fosters a positive culture of teamwork and understanding
  • Breaks down barriers and removes unnecessary distractions
  • Everyone collaborating to achieve a common goal
  • Shared accountability – to themselves and to each other
  • Promotes driving for the best outcome.
Customer Commitment Model

Baked into our DNA is a commitment to our customers. It’s important to establish and to maintain long lasting relationships, and to be a true extension of the team. That’s why we have the Playtime Customer Commitment Model.  Coupled with our squad model, this people centric framework looks beyond the technical detail of the solution build and adds context, insight and engagement.

DISCOVER
Understand our customers, the requirements, challenges, industry, processes and unique attributes. Identify gaps and build relationships.

MAKE IT HAPPEN
We promise to deliver on our promises, and make it happen. We will develop, design, build and deliver the solution – rain, hail or shine.

ENGAGE
Once the solution has been delivered, we celebrate each success and always strive to ensure that your teams are well equipped to take the steering wheel and build on the momentum they’ve been a part of.

People Centric

Fundamental to the success of Playtime is how we are People Centric. Being People Centric, injects genuine commitment into every engagement. We have a commitment and vested interest in every client we work with, solution that we deliver, person we hire, partner we work with.

We make a conscious effort to understand the drivers and motivators behind every person and organisation that we build relationships with optimising the outcome for all. We make a promise, commit to making it happen, and are engaged for the long run.
