a multi-award winning developer of simple digital solutions for manufacturers.
the simple approach
(what we do)
we take off-the-shelf consumer technologies
develop simple and intuitive software
and combine them to create simple solutions
We don't do anything complicated. No jargon in sight. We don't use artificial intelligence, machine learning or the blockchain, we use mobile phones, tablets and apps.
They're inexpensive, you already know how to use them, and they have a multitude of different sensors and technologies that we can use in the future to help you.
our business model
(why we do it)
and no sales team
use only consumer
Elements Technology utilises a business model that aims to reduce costs to us, so that we don't have to pass the costs to our customers.
We have a fixed pricing model, as if we negotiated prices, we'd need to hire a sales team, which would increase the price. We also benefit from using off-the-shelf consumer technologies, meaning that we don't have to perform expensive R&D (as explained previously). Finally we utilise third party technologies that help you to use the product.

Rather than a fixed advisory board, we utilise an extensive advisory group of formal advisors from Digital Catapult and the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre. In November 2018 we gained seed funding from the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund, helping us to hire a team and build the Elements Platform.
