Project line up:

Visa Masters of Movement ⚽💳
With all eyes on Qatar for the first FIFA World Cup in the Middle East, Visa wanted to use their sponsorship of the tournament to demonstrate that the brand is much more than just a credit card. Visa’s global campaign around the tournament was ‘For Fans Everywhere’, and the brief was to create an innovative, accessible experience for the FIFA Fan Festival in Doha that enabled participation for all.

The Visa network enables the seamless movement of money across the world, just like the best football players move on the pitch. Visa Masters of Movement brought this to life through an incredible fusion of football, art and technology.

World first composable commerce with MKM 🖥️👩🏽‍💼
Brave Bison brought together a combination of MACH-certified independent software vendors (ISVs) including a commerce platform, frontend-as-a-service, and content management and personalisation solutions formed a headless MACH architecture.
This custom-built composable architecture allowed us to migrate MKM to BigCommerce in rapid time without compromising on business identity or user experience. What’s more, we were able to reduce costs and risks of system dependency while unlocking opportunities within new channels.

Taking UKPN from monolithic to modern ⚡🔌

UKPN needed a fast, efficient, and dependable digital platform to keep the masses informed during storms, power cuts and other challenging times. Without one, millions could (quite literally) be left in the dark.

Join us to learn how we approached the migration of UK Power Network’s digital platforms from monolithic to composable and created a bespoke Storm Centre that is unique in the industry. As well as improved UX and UI, this digital transformation project has slashed carbon emissions, increased user capacity, reduced operational costs, and halved page-load times with a customer satisfaction score now reaching 91.72 among UK Power Networks customers.
