JFDI - the who, what & why

We’re an information systems consultancy, focused on improving business processes.

As a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, we’re experts in SharePoint implementation, development and training. But we’re open to other technologies too and if a reliable technology doesn’t exist, we’ll invent one. Our mission is simple – to use technology to deliver measurable benefits for our clients: improving speed, efficiency, accuracy, productivity and customer engagement.

We’re passionate about computer science and proud of our R&D capability. Where other people see limitations, we see opportunities. We strive to make advances in IT that are genuinely relevant and applicable to real-life business challenges. It’s not about the glory of discovery, it’s the satisfaction of seeing that discovery drive business growth.

We’re obsessed with integration, automation and gamification.

Why integration? Because things work better when they’re joined up.

Why automation? Because humans are typically slow and prone to making mistakes.

Why gamification? Because engaged employees lead to greater business success.

How we’re different

JFDI offers a unique blend of consultancy, training and software development.

Whereas many of our competitors offer an “intranet in a box”, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Flexibility is key. Our technical knowledge and skills can be applied to any business problem in any industry sector.

 We’re inquisitive and visionary, acting as an IT think tank for many SMEs and corporate clients. We’re pioneers of the Internet of Things because the IoT has the ability to connect workflow processes, business intelligence, artificial intelligence and data warehousing. Once connected, your business can harness each one’s true power.

At JFDI, we always have our clients’ best interests at heart. Rather than creating complex hardware and then charging the earth for it, we develop cost-effective, user-friendly solutions. We’re also very likeable people, which is important if you’re working with us on a long-term project!
