User experience to grow your audience
We know the importance of user experience. After all, there are many similar products, services and platforms out there. What truly creates a competitive advantage is the experience we get when using them. Acknowledging that, our developers design together with UI/UX experts new and sophisticated online experiences which go beyond the standard. To achieve this, we map user journeys extensively at the beginning as well as collaborate closely with you to capture all your experience. With extensive testing, we ensure that only the most sophisticated design will be presented to your users.
Marketing as the backbone
Maintaining your audience without additional growth means stagnation. Five Jars avoids that at all costs, which is why we always integrate a holistic marketing approach into all our solutions. We not only create mesmerizing online experiences but also offer expertise in designing solutions which by design foster your marketing achievements. Our developers and marketing experts collaborate to create a synergy of the two disciplines which will create a long-term impact for your business.

Budgeting is vital
Budgeting and adhering to budgets is essential for the success of media and entertainment companies. Five Jars understands the challenge media companies face in these transformative times and works effortlessly to provide comprehensive cost estimates. Through our agile methodologies, we are able to provide granular cost estimates for specific parts of a bigger project - and an explanation on what parts are necessary and which ones only nice to have. We guarantee to not overrun any agreed upon budget as we believe in fairness and transparency.
Analytics to drive future success
Information is key to the success of any organisation today. Five Jars always focuses on your analytics possibilities in the future and creates systems which offer advanced analytics capabilities. We are convinced that by offering you more access to your data as well as a simplified approach to manipulate that data, we help you to grow faster and more sustainably. In our understanding, that is something which should be an industry standard by now, however, is often overlooked.

We design systems which avoid legacy issues and which foster the modular and simple extension of your existing infrastructure.
