30 years of commitment

Since 1990, our digital experts assist their customers in leveraging their internal data and streamlining their processes.

Our customers, large international corporation and french companies, have generated value, gained time and money through more accessible and more operational information and through simplified/lean processes.

We are an agile, service-oriented team, fully dedicated to the success of your project and have experienced zero turn-over throughout the years which allows follow-through and sustainability of our solutions.

Methodology – Agile

At Winch, we are nimble/reactive, service-oriented and leverage best web practices (Scrum, DevOps, UX-focused).

We listen to your requirements and challenge them, question them, refine them, bullet-proof them, and raise them to a air-tight app design.
Many say that is our key contribution to their project.

Then we consult & integrate your company policies, infrastructures, practices. We get help when required (web designers, platform-specific experts) and come up with a solution specs that meets needs, budget and timeline.

Once the feasibility/design phase is complete, we start building. This is an interactive and iterative process: modules are assembled, coded, tuned; the UX is tested at each step and revised to match scope changes; weights, bandwidth, performances, scalability are examined along the way and integrated early in the design; touchpoints with others systems are documented, structured & future-proofed.

Delivery, testing & roll-out is then organized. We document testing and conduct qualification procedures if applicable (network, security, performance). We can also contribute to your communication & training materials or campaigns. Lastly, we help you sustain and maintain the application, either as third-level support or as iterated releases.

100% satisfied & returning customers

Winch’ specific signature is the constant will to select and implement the optimal solution to the needs of the customer, at every step of the project.

For this reason, a large worldwide oilfield corporation such a Schlumberger has entrusted Winch to setup a wide set of front-end applications to drive various aspects of employee engagement, collaboration and management (HR modules, ESN modules, internal recognition, etc.) for over 20 years now.

The french publishing groupe Madrigall has commissioned Winch over multiple years to build and expand on a multi-purpose BI tool for the monitoring of sales and inventory, including predictive projections & simulations to facilitate and optimize production and supply chain.

Our DNA – Strive for Perfection

“Laziness. Impatience. Hubris.”
According to Larry Wall, these are the three great virtues of a programmer and we daily strive to honor and abide by every single one of them.
This infuses efficiency, performance and maintainability in everything we deliver.
Quoting a fellow countryman, our work is complete not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to remove.

We are particularly focusing on large volume databases, secure access with fine granularity authorizations, effective slick interfaces and to-the-point user experience.
Over the years, we have been involved on building applications covering various domains. We have developed expertise on two specific ones: Knowledge Management and Human Resources.

Please contact us for more details on these tools and how we could leverage this expertise in your projects.

User-centered Solutions

The successful deployment of a solution largely depends on user acceptance and so such deployments must factor in the intimate understanding of user audience. This is key for us.

Unless you steer extremely close to the need, habits and culture of the company and customize them heavily, the “off the shelves” tools are likely to be bent/twisted out of their primary use, and this generates waste of time and consequently money, not to mention many frustrations which negatively impact corporate image and employee engagement.

We place user experience (UX) at the center of our solutions, in close correlation with the target audience.
